CAD Trion 7000 Features
- Dual element ribbon for increased sensitivity
- Outstanding warm classic vocal sound
- Includes a professional shockmount

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.

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.
