Guns N Roses Tries On Trion

New York (November 15, 2006)--Guns N’ Roses fans are a questioning lot. Sure, some of them (OK, all of them) wonder “When is Chinese Democracy coming out?” But really, that query is so last millennium (plus, we have no idea). However, we can answer a different question--namely, "what guitar mics are used on GNR's current U.S. tour?"

New York (November 15, 2006)--Guns N’ Roses fans are a questioning lot. Sure, some of them (OK, all of them) wonder “When is Chinese Democracy coming out?” But really, that query is so last millennium (plus, we have no idea). However, we can answer a different question--namely, "what guitar mics are used on GNR's current U.S. tour?"

Richard Fortus (left) and Toby Francis with the CAD Trion 7000.Following an extensive mic shoot-out to find the right microphone for his guitar amps, Richard Fortus, guitarist for GNR, and Toby Francis, the band’s FOH engineer, have chosen the new CAD Trion 7000 Ribbon microphone. ”We just did a shoot-out with every mic we could think of, tested every one, and the CAD Trion 7000 was the hands-down winner,” said Fortus. “We love it. In fact, we are using it on both of my amps and I couldn't he happier with it."

Francis was also enthusiastic about the mic, remarking, "We've just started using the Trion 7000 ribbon mic on Richard's amps, replacing another large diaphragm condenser. We instantly liked how natural the mic sounded. It needed much less EQ. In fact, we took off everything that was on the channel and the Trion 7000 sounded better than what we were using before. It's an incredibly natural sounding microphone."
