Loïc Pontieux

Drummer Jazz / Blues - Composer

  • It's always advisable to have at least one or two ambiance mics to achieve a deeper, fuller sound when recording drums. I've been using the new Claude Salmiéri DMA, which I often combine with Prodipe's DR8.

    The DMA is perfectly suited to an ensemble sound (instruments like piano or strings with their rich harmonies, and vocal groups). Moreover, the dual suspension system blocks out any vibration.

    Once again, Prodipe are offering a professional product of irreproachable quality and irreproachable price, and it's just as good as the bigger brands. Yes, this brand really does think like a musician and I'm 100% behind what they're doing. Our profession is in need of a rethink, and Prodipe embody that rethink.
