• Vintage Analog Recording Console
    1980's era Trident T24 24 buss Vintage Analog Recording Console, from London England

    "Many have tried, but failed in imitating this sound. Many claim to have the "British EQ" incorporated into their consoles. Don't be fooled by hype and false promise. There is only one company with the knowledge and commitment to providing the studio owner with this rugged, flexible, and truly unique sounding recording console" -www.dancetech.com

    Modifications that were made to the console involved the replacement of all op amps with newer revised texas instruments chips. and replacement of all coupling and de-coupling caps with high quality vishay/dale high temp low e.s.r. electrolytics. In addition, a solid copper ground buss bar .5" in thickness was added to give the Trident a very solid ground plane in which to reference all the signals and power supply voltages to. This modification enhanced the noise floor and helped to strengthen low frequency response and accuracy. A new and completely redesigned master section mixbuss amplifier and buffer amplifier regime was also added.  Utilizing op amps from John Hardy and custom transformers that very closely resemble API 2430 output transformers, this mod made the most difference sonically and unveils a level of detail and frequency response that the stock Trident lacked.  You will like how your music sounds and the resolution this hybrid Trident provides.
