Trident 78 24 Channel 8 Buss Console

24-channel 8 buss console with LED meter bridge
MFR# 78-24

Product Description

Analog console all Trident through and through!

The Trident Series 78 is a cost effective mixing console tailored for engineers, studio owners, educational facilities, houses of worship, and live sound applications.

The 78s are split/inline consoles with individual channels in 4-way panels. Using an 8 subgroup configuration and incorporating 6 Aux sends, its routing options are vast and simple to use. Connections are fast and easy with DB-25’s throughout the board and XLR’s for all Mic inputs.

With the 808 EQ at its core, including selectable channel inserts and discrete preamps driving the inputs, the Series 78 consoles offer a wide array of summing and mixing options. The uncompromising sonic quality and compact footprint of the 78s are able to meet any demand.

Features found throughout the 78 make for a straightforward and powerful package, but paramount to all else is The Sound. Among the many styles, preferences and methods of recording exists the expectation that a board must have the ability to be pushed hard and sound big. This is a hallmark of the series 80 consoles and the 78 carries that tradition forward.

Bottom line: the Trident 78 was created with all of this in mind so that you can use it to make great sounding tracks.

Modularity Throughout

The 78s by design are manufactured to be a more cost effective variant of the fully modular 88s. Incorporating a similar chassis design and the same meter bridge, the 78s have a rugged and proven core. Using a semi-modular design, the 78s are able to effectively reduce their overall costs without a significant sacrifice to serviceability.

  • All input channels are individual boards, faders included, each in a 4 channel pack
  • Subgroups are individual boards, faders included, each in a 4 channel pack
  • Master Channel is an individual channel separated from all others

This was my first experience buying something from Vintage King (although I surf the "used" categories on the website frequently!), and, despite being on the other side of the world, I had absolutely no trouble and everything went very smoothly.

From the minute I placed my order I was kept well-informed through each step in your process. Even though I was buying a comparatively modest piece of gear, your attention to detail made me feel like I was purchasing a six-figure mixing desk.
