CAD Trion 7000 Dual Element Ribbon Microphone Details

The Trion 7000 incorporates a 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.

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 durability. Shock mount, heavy-duty aluminum carrying case included.

As with any passive ribbon microphone, ensure that theTrion 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.

What We Think - CAD Trion 7000 Review

The CAD Trion 7000 is by far one of the coolest mics out there for home studios and project studios. It is a total character piece, but for those like me that really love a rounded off top end on an electric guitar, with a big deep body – the CAD Trion 7000 is a killer mic for that. The double ribbon element does help maintain sensitivity, so you don’t loose the nuances of the performance, but you also get this full in your face – dark sound that makes the guitar stand out. Though I love this mic for guitars, it also is very cool on percussion. Drum Room, Toms, Overheads, it will add a nice dimension to your sound. The Trion 7000 is another winner from CAD.

Sagging ribbon January 5, 2011
Reviewer: Nick from Highland Lakes, NJ United States  
Upon recieving this mic I checked out the dual ribbon motor after hearing on GS that QA from China on these has been pretty bad. Well they are right so I'm like ok that's fine I'll send it back and get another one. Well I'm going on week 3 and CAD still hasn't sent a replacement. I've sent 3 emails to the corresponding RMA/sales person  that was recommended through FEA and again he doesn't respond. Then I have to constantly call and try to track this thing down. All this for a 200$ mic. I guess you get what you pay for. So I'm hoping FEA issues me a refund and I'll buy something more reputable.

CAD Trion 7000, ties it all into a neat little bow September 14, 2006
Reviewer:  Joel Patterson from Albany,  New York  
The novelty of being able to write the first review of something is just too tempting to resist, for some people. Call it raging egomania, or call it one's duty to society? At any rate, this is a fabulous mic, I'd call it an awesome room mic, first and foremost, because somehow it has a way of capturing a mighty helping of low end information clearly and evenly, as well as high end detail from sources a good ways off. Of course, one of the disadvantages of racing to be the first to review it is that you don't have a whole wealth of stories about how it performed in various situations. Well... you got to leave something for the second and third reviewers.
