The Trion 8000 has a nice top end, smooth and very true sounding. It's on the top of my list for vocal mics.

This mic was warm, fat and brilliant on my 200 year old French Bass. I knew my bass sounded good, but it sounded unbelievable. Thanks for a GREAT microphone!

How easy is this product to use? How easy is the product to use with other products? Did it take long for you to learn to use this product? Was the manual helpful? How playable do you consider this product to be?
This piece is extremely easy to setup and use. The adjustable polar patters are clearly marked on the mic, so it's pretty much plug and play.
Sound
How is the tone?
Overall, the tone is... AMAZING! I'm a trombonist and getting finding the right mic to capture the nuances of my instrument has fairly difficult. This mic, however, really does the trick. While there may be some sacrifice of the bottom end, the midrange and high end sparkles providing a wonderful result.
