Trident Series 65 24x8x16 24 Channel Recording Mixer Console w/ PSU #29231

Availability: In stock


Quick Overview



BRAND: Trident

MODEL: Series 65

FUNCTION: Recording Console

DESCRIPTION: This listing is for a Trident Series 65 24x8x16 Recording Console with Power Supply.

The console comes directly out of Bronson Island Studios here in the Hollywood Hills. You can check the Studio's Youtube channel hear it in action as well as view and listen to several recordings done as part of their live broadcasts.

PHYSICAL CONDITION: Very Good. This console has a lovely vintage look. This Trident is strong and durable. It has some surface wear and occasional scratches on the wood.

There's a good bit of finish wear along the front edge, but this console looks great overall.

WORKING CONDITION: Good. This console overall works and sounds excellent, however, it has many small issues that will likely clean up with some cleaning and exercising. Many buttons are a little crunchy when pressed but still make solid contact, and a few faders are slightly scratchy. This the natural result of the console being out of service for over a year.

Here are specific details on what we noticed upon its evaluation:
-Channel 9 no mic input and no noise from mic amp at all at fader
-Channel 7 High Mid Frequency and gain pots are broken off and knobs missing
-Channel 5 pan pot broken off
-Five fader caps need to be replaced
-Channel 15 fader does not attenuate like it should
-Channel 11, 17 & 21 intermittent possibly dirty edge connector
-Bus 5 was intermittently low but wiggling seemed to help 
-EQ IN lamp is out on group 9/1 module
-Group out one shows on meter but nothing at insert send or xlr output AND input return doesn't go to output
-Group out 7 no meter no output no insert send, but insert return goes to xlr output
-No group 2 meter
-Upper monitor level knob on 5/13 needs to be replaced

In short, there are lots of quirks that need a qualified tech's attention. But these boards are generally easy to repair and replacement parts are usually readily available. With a little bit of love, you can bring this board back to perfect working shape and have an excellent console at the heart of your studio.
