Treehouse Records is pleased to announce the recent aquisation of a 1979 Trident TSM #9. Recently bought from Paragon Studios in Chicago, this unique Trident audio mixing console was constructed in 1979 and remained in full service at Trident Studios in London until 1981 when renowned recording engineer, Ben Rizzi, purchased and installed it in New York City’s Master Sound Studios. There, the console’s award winning recordings by renowned artists led to a studio buyout and its relocation to Kaufman Astoria Film Studios in 1984. The console was then sold to Fred Shaw of Bradley House Music Studios in Quinby, South Carolina. In 2002 the console was purchased by its third owner, Ned Engelhart, of Paragon Studios, Inc. in Chicago, IL. Paragon recently shut its doors after 46 years of business. In November of 2015 Treehouse Records purchased the console and is incredibly excited to announce that it will be up and running soon at Studio A.
