Of all the components in a mic, the one that has to be infallible is the capsule. We have developed a unidirectional capsule for the VL21 violin mic because cardioid capsules and their mounting can cause problems for musicians. They are also aesthetically dubious (especially in videos).
Our capsule is as close as possible to the sound source, just beneath the strings, tight against the soundboard, ensuring that the recording is richer in harmonics and more dynamic.
I have called upon only the best musicians to test the mic systems: Patrick Bourgoin for the saxophone, Yvon Guillard for the trumpet, Claude Salmiéri for percussion of course, Clément Garcin for the guitar and ukulele, Jean-Claude Auclin for the cello and Gérard Prévost for the double bass.
Our inspiration for developing the capsule has been DPA's range of instrument mics, the most reputed mics in the field. We have constantly compared the performance of our mics with DPA's.
Each of the 21 Series mic systems is priced at 99 euros. But don't let the price be the deciding factor. Buy the mic for its pro quality, because that's our objective: to make pro quality available to everyone. And with this new range, Prodipe have done it again. They just can't stop making their mark on the world of pro audio.
