You missed it!


A rare chance to secure a meticulously maintained 1979 Trident TSM console with great musical pedigree, having been used for Adele, Bjork, Rob D, Massive Attack, Klaxons, Peaches, SMD, Metronomy, Arcade Fire and many more.

In good working order – this Trident has been with its current owner for many years and has been very well looked after.
