Trident 80B Console for sale. Original early model. Well maintained by an Ex Trident Audio tech.
32 Channel / 24 Monitor / buss. Aux sends on Monitors. Attached Patch bay.
I have owned this console for a 2 years, having it well maintained by an ex trident tech.. I am selling as I need to downsize as i'm emigrating abroad. This is a chance to own a well looked after 80B, with cabling / patch bay done by Funky Junk / Van damn.
It’s in very good condition, every part works. I use it for mixing exclusively, so have it set up for that. It has had re capping done where necessary, and I changed every single pan pot for new ones, but I didn't do a total recap when I bought it, as the majority were fine as they were and it sounded great. A few button here and there need a double press now and again, but nothing a spray of Kontact wont fix. Standard for a Vintage console of this era.
Mods - As I mix only, I have 2 variable resistors on the main mix out, so with a screw driver and a lap top program, you can fine tune the left and right mix out to be perfect.
Mix out Op amps. I swapped the original mix Op amps for better standard Burr Brown ones. I still have the original TL ones so the buyer could swap back, however the Burr Brown mod sounds better anyway.
Aux sends. The Aux sends knobs on every single channel can be lifted up to turn them off / mute them.
Extras - I own the rare trident stereo compressor, I may do a deal if you want that as well. I have a monitor bridge that was made for it also that will come with it.
Power supply is well maintained and in an armoured sound proof box.
It comes with Tuchels and looms, with XLR end connectors (All Van damn cabling) for the entire patch bays worth of ins and outs for all the outboard slots, which cost several grand.
It has a tuchel - xlr break out box for 8 channels of the Mic pre's (as I do little recording) You would need to add on 4 tuchels for the remaining mic inputs if your setting it up for tracking, so not a huge job at all.
The console is in daily use in my Suffolk studio and will be until its sold, so viewings are welcome.
