CAD recently introduced Trion, its most highly evolved line of studio microphones distinguished by the brand’s heritage of design, innovation and quality. The Trion 8000 is a multi-pattern, externally biased, large dual diaphragm studio tube condenser mic, the Trion 7000 is a dynamic, dual-element ribbon mic and the Trion 6000 a multi-pattern, externally biased, large dual diaphragm studio condenser mic.
Flagship for the new line, the Trion 8000 incorporates a sophisticated, precision-machined, hand-assembled capsule with low mass 1.12″ gold vapor-deposited, hand dampened diaphragms to produce the warm, rich and open classic tube sound ideal for studio vocal recordings in the digital realm. A 3-position polar pattern switch provides selection of omnidirectional, cardioid or figure-8 polar patterns for the versatility required by today’s professional recording situations.
In addition to exceptional sensitivity, low distortion and an extended frequency response, the Trion 8000 features discrete Class A electronics for transparent sound reproduction. Its transformer-coupled output ensures excellent RF immunity, cancellation of cable capacitance, and rejection of induced line noise. Its rugged metal housing and construction ensure long-term durability and reliable performance. Featuring a distinctive heritage design, the Trion 8000 delivers a smooth, accurate frequency response and high SPL capability. It comes supplied with a shock mount, heavy-duty aluminum carrying case, 25ft 6-pin connector cable, and power supply.
The Trion 7000 incorporates a sophisticated, precision-machined, hand-assembled aluminum ribbon capsule to produce a classically rich, warm sound ribbon mics are known for. It is ideal for recording vocals, brass and woodwinds, cello, acoustic bass, as well as guitar and bass amps. The 7000 is equally effective in live and studio applications when a full-bodied sound is desired.
With a natural figure-8 pickup pattern, the Trion 7000 is most sensitive in the front and the back of the microphone and least sensitive at the sides. Its pronounced proximity effect allows the user to achieve a strong “fattening” effect at close distances. Rugged and durable, the 7000’s metal housing and construction enable it to withstand the harsh demands of live and studio applications. It comes supplied with shock mount and heavy-duty aluminum carrying case.
Incorporating a sophisticated, precision-machined, hand assembled capsule, the Trion 6000 features low mass 1″ gold vapor deposited, hand-dampened diaphragms. Combined, these produce a warm, open and detailed sound for studio vocals, choir, classical stringed instruments, piano and acoustic guitar.
A 3-position polar pattern switch allows the user to select omnidirectional, cardioid, or figure-8 polar patterns. Coupled with the high pass filter and attenuation switches located on the rear of the mic body, the 6000 delivers exceptional versatility and flexibility in a variety of recording situations.
Exceptional sensitivity, low distortion and an extended frequency response make the Trion 6000 an ideal performer in digital recording situations. Discrete Class A electronics ensure transparent, accurate sound reproduction, while the 6000’s transformer-coupled output provides excellent RF immunity, cancellation of cable capacitance, and rejection of induced line noise. The rugged metal housing and construction provide exceptional durability Featuring a heritage design, the microphone offers an aesthetically pleasing industrial profile and comes equipped with shock mount and heavy-duty aluminum carrying case. 48V phantom power is required.
