CROWLEY AND TRIPP AND TRUE SYSTEMS COLLABORATION ANNOUNCED
TRUE Systems, makers of fine preamplifiers, and Crowley and Tripp Microphones, announced today that they will offer specially priced packages of the P-SOLO Ribbon preamp and the Naked Eye ribbon microphone. TRUE Systems’ Tim Spencer, and Crowley and Tripp’s Bob Crowley worked together recently at Tape Op Con in Tucson, Arizona to carefully match microphone and preamp in order to assure the best possible performance under all recording situations.
“The P-SOLO works with all natural ribbon mics, and the Naked Eye works with virtually all preamps, so putting the two together creates an unbeatable sound with clean gain, tons of headroom, plus the high output of the Naked Eye. The sound is apparent. More really is more — guitars, vocals, everything,” said Bob Crowley.
Tim Spencer added, “With the P-SOLO we have pushed the limits of low noise, high gain musical amplification, again. Careful front-end design, an intelligent gain curve, and a bulletproof power supply assure a level of performance that maintains clean, clear sound, even as tracks are layered many times over.”
The P-SOLO Ribbon preamp and the Crowley and Tripp Naked Eye are already favorites of many and have achieved acclaim. Each received the Pro Audio Review Excellence award at last year’s AES meeting in San Francisco. “Tim and Bob want people to hear how well these work together. That’s really the story behind it,” explained Crowley and Tripp product manager, Chris Regan.
The P-SOLO Ribbon preamp and Naked Eye ribbon microphone package is available through SoundwaveResearch.com and a wide variety of pro audio dealers. The package price is $1,265, a savings of $225 from the regular price of $1,490.
Crowley and Tripp ribbon microphones are hand-built in the company’s Ashland, Massachusetts USA laboratory by people who know the art and science of acoustics, and who have years of experience with high output, low noise instruments used in medical and professional audio applications. Models include Studio Vocalist, Soundstage Image, Proscenium, Naked Eye, Recordist and SPLx Custom.
TRUE Systems, Tucson, Arizona designs and manufactures high-value, high-end professional audio products for the domestic and international marketplace. Tim Spencer is the principal designer and engineering force behind the company. Tim has been with TRUE Systems since it’s inception in 1997. The U.S. built line includes the SOLO series, the P2 Analog and Precision 8 multi-channel mic preamps.
