CAD Trion 8000 Tube Microphone Details
The Trion 8000 is a multi-pattern, externally biased, large dual diaphragm studio tube condenser microphone which incorporates a precision-machined, hand-assembled capsule. The low mass 1.25" gold vapor deposited, hand dampened diaphragms offer the warm, rich and open classic tube sound ideal for studio vocal recordings in the digital realm. Exceptional sensitivity, low distortion and an extended frequency response make the Trion 8000 an outstanding performer.
Discrete Class A electronics provide transparent, accurate sound reproduction. The transformer-coupled output ensures excellent RF immunity, cancellation of cable capacitance, and rejection of induced line noise. A 3-position polar pattern switch provides selection of omnidirectional, cardioid or figure-8 polar patterns for versatility and flexibility. The rugged metal housing and construction provide durability.

What We Think - CAD Trion 8000 Review
The CAD Trion 8000, think tube mic. It's that simple. The Trion 8000 is a well rounded tube mic that will take anything you give it, with ease. Characteristic of tube mics, the Trion 8000 has a full mid body, smooth top, and a present low end. I really like it on low energy sources like bass guitar and outside of a kick drum. If you want to add a nice dimension to you drum mix, try it on drum room or overhead.
