OUR GEAR

OUR LEGENDARY TRIDENT 80B

Here are some fun facts and a little history about our famous Trident 80B Console here at The Soundscape. Not only have we made some great recordings with this legendary piece of gear, so has Rami Jaffee of The Foo Fighters!

Prior to recommissioning the Trident 80B here in Metro Detroit, many top-tier musicians and bands graced the faders of this beautiful sounding console at Rami’s personal studio, Fonogenic Studios in Van Nuys, CA.

Some of those great bands include The Hollywood Vampires, Billy Gibbons, Cage The Elephant, Don Was, Eddie Kramer, MC Lyte, Stone Temple Pilots, The Foo Fighters, The Doors, Melissa Etheridge, and The Wallflowers to name only a few!

The Trident 80B has been used on countless hit records over the years, some of those include but are not limited to: The Wall (Pink Floyd), Fashion Nugget (Cake), Into The Great Wide Open (Tom Petty & The Heart Breakers), Appetite For Destruction (Guns N’ Roses), Life’s Rich Pageant (R.E.M.), Scarecrow (John Mellencamp) & Girls, Girls, Girls (Motley Crue).

It’s all about the sound! Let’s make your next record on our Trident 80B analog console!
