Crowley and Tripp partner with TRUE Systems for matched product package

Preamplifier manufacturer TRUE Systems and Crowley and Tripp Microphones will offer specially priced packages of the P-SOLO ribbon preamp and the Naked Eye ribbon microphone. Company principals Tim Spencer of TRUE Systems and Bob Crowley of Crowley and Tripp worked together at the recent TapeOpCon in Tucson, AZ, to carefully match microphone and preamp 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,” Crowley said.

Crowley and Tripp ribbon microphones are hand-built in the company's Ashland, MA, laboratory, while TRUE Systems is based in Tucson, AZ. The P-SOLO ribbon preamp and Naked Eye ribbon microphone package is available directly from each manufacturer, or through their pro audio dealers.
