Product Description

The CAD Trion 7000 is a dynamic, dual-element, ribbon microphone. The Trion 7000 incorporates a sophisticated, precision-machined, hand-assembled aluminum ribbon capsule offering a rich, warm, classic sound. It is an excellent tool for recording vocals, brass and woodwinds, cello, acoustic bass as well as guitar and bass amps. It can be used in both live and studio applications wherever a warm, full-bodied tone is desired.

CAD Trion 7000 Features

  • Dual element ribbon for increased sensitivity
  • Outstanding warm classic vocal sound
  • Includes a professional shockmount
  • Aluminum carrying case
The polar pattern of the Trion 7000 is naturally a figure-8. This means that the microphone is most sensitive in the front and the back, and least sensitive at the sides. The pronounced proximity effect associated with the Trion 7000 means that a strong fattening effect can be achieved at close distances. The rugged metal housing and construction provide the durability required to withstand the harsh day-today demands of both live and studio applications. All these features make the Trion 7000 an excellent choice for a wide variety of live and recording applications. Shock mount, heavy-duty aluminum carrying case included.

From musicians recording at home to performers, FOH engineers and Grammy award winning artists, the Trion 7000 is receiving these types of comments:

It's a great ribbon mic, just amazing, PHAT PHAT PHAT, I'm using it on guitar EQ necessary and I'm a happy camper. Try out the Trion rocks!
- Mike Harrison FOH engineer with Kinky

My favorite mic right now is the Trion 7000 ribbon mic. It's an unbelieveable mic, I've been using it on everything, piano, saxaphone, horns, guitar, vocals, especially chorus vocals. This mic really brings out the warmth in this room.

CAUTION: As with any passive ribbon microphone, care must be taken to ensure that the Trion 7000 is not plugged into active phantom power. Phantom power can permanently damage the delicate ribbon. The Trion 7000 should not be used in a kick drum where the strong air blasts might permanently stretch the ribbon. Due to the strong magnetic fields inside a ribbon microphone, areas where ferrous dust and filings are present should be avoided. A pop-filter is recommended for close vocal use.

great up until 10k than you need to boost the EQ if you want any top end sparkle, however be warned that this can introduce all sorts of broadband noise especially if it is being run sub par Pre's.
