New Trion Range Of Microphones From CAD

United States
English
SCV, London, June 25th, 2007 — Along with SCV’s new distribution deal with CAD comes three new condenser models, in the form of the Trion series. These latest editions, a line of studio microphones, have a characteristic lollipop look, each offering unique functional sound and design. The range includes a multi-pattern condenser tube, a dual-element ribbon and multi-pattern condenser. These microphones use state-of-the art technology combined with beautiful industrial design to produce microphones with a wonderful vintage tone, vintage look and vintage feel.

The Trion 8000 is a multi-pattern, dual-diaphragm tube condenser mic featuring an extra-large diaphragm that not only brings back the look, but also the sound of early condensers. The Trion 6000 is similarly spec’d but as a solid state design. It offers vintage feel and also features the flexibility of cardioid, figure-of-eight or omnidirectional polar patterns. The Trion 7000 is a dual-ribbon microphone, with naturally exaggerated proximity effect and a bi-directional polar pattern. It is designed using two ultra-thin aluminum ribbons for extra sensitivity and will fail to disappoint those after that classic ribbon vocal sound.

All Trion models come in an attractive aluminum travel case and are supplied with shock mounts.

About CAD

During the fall of 1988 a division of CTI Audio was formed to accomplish a distinctive brand and market development plan, under the named Conneaut Audio Devices, or CAD.

The initial CAD brand product offering included a revolutionary servo circuit console and a number of breakthrough processing products. However, concurrent with the burgeoning project or “home recording” and post-production industry, came new pressures to reduce costs fueled in part by the proliferation of studios and the accelerated deployment of high yield, low cost technologies.

Using experience with servo head amplifiers and a long history of microphone transduction and acoustical design, the first high performance recording microphone was developed which eventually led to the acclaimed “Equitek” Series of studio and live condenser mic products. The series included the E100, E200 and E300, the latter winning Electronic Musician’s “Studio Microphone of the Year” award in 1997.

One segment of the market CAD initially addressed better than the competition and one in which the company continues to lead is the percussion mic market, with products generally available in “kit” or “pack” form. CAD’s current offering, including the DMTP4 and DMTP7 Drum Mic Touring Packs, stand among the most popular low to mid priced products on the market today.

CAD has also used their sophisticated and innovative system of sourcing and production protocol to develop an entirely new line of large diaphragm condenser microphones, featuring extremely low noise and new mechanical designs requiring less manufacturing time. This M Series of microphones were developed as very high technology products at very attractive price points.

More recently CAD has introduced the highly successful Trion Series microphones which include a multi-pattern condenser tube, a dual-element ribbon and multi-pattern condenser. These microphones use state-of-the art technology combined with beautiful industrial design to produce microphones with a wonderful vintage tone, vintage look and vintage feel.

CAD has recently signed up over 50 endorsees including five-time Grammy award winner John Legend to promote our products. They have many innovative new products in the pipeline and look forward to many years of bringing innovation and value to the professional, live sound, broadcast and recording industries.
