Trident anyone?

Postby Drumstruck » Fri Mar 08, 2013 10:30 am

Anyone else drool over Trident gear?

I see this unit for sale from a gent in Florida (perhaps it's an old ad as there are a lot of TSM modules on ebay atm)

If I had a spare $20K + freight perhaps it would be mine :((

That's a lot of channels... could easy make some cool sidecars out of that.

I've worked on quite a few not very nice Trident consoles in the UK.
Regarding shipping a Trident from abroad, or the recent Sphere discussion, it seems like a crazy expense given the lack of health in the music industry. Surely there are decent consoles in Oz already looking for a new home?

I've never seen anything special about a Trident, never understood the fuss.
