Trident 80B Dual Channel Mic Line PreAmp and 4 Band EQ
The Trident Series 80B is a two-channel rack mountable version of the legendary Series 80B console. Comprising two independent channels, each with a microphone/line amplifier and four band equalizer, it is designed to process incoming signals from a microphone or line level instrument and output to a recording device, such as a digital audio workstation or analog multi-track tape recorder.
The Series 80B rack unit is derived from the legendary Series 80B consoles designed by Malcom Toft in the late 1970s. It incorporates an exact replica of the mic preamp and equalizer design that gave the original console its unique sound. These consoles have been used to record just about every major artist in the past three decades including Elton John, Dire Straits, David Bowie, Rod Stewart and Stevie Wonder to name but a few. More recently they have been used to record artists such as Radiohead and Pavarotti.
