Fifi Chayeb

Bass player

  • To let my double bass be heard, I’ve chosen my mic: Prodipe’s new BL21 Contrabasse.


    Prodipe has remained true to their reputation and their commitment: a perfect sound reproduction that gives me the full harmonic warmth of my instrument, as well as a simple and clever fastening system

  • It's amazingly difficult to get the right sound for a bass guitar using UHF. Very few of the systems on the market can manage it. But Prodipe just keep on delivering.

    They've developed the UHF DSP GB210 system, an UHF transmitter/receiver for guitar and bass at an incredible price.

    Well done, Prodipe!

  • My thanks to Prodipe, and my congratulations as well, for giving us the IEM7120 in-ear wireless system. It's ultra-pro, and in all honesty, I'm proud to endorse the Prodipe brand because I know that plenty of musicians out there on a modest budget are going to be able to afford this type of system.

    And the thing is, I also have a huge amount of respect for Ludovic Lanen. We often bump into each other at events and I've been impressed by his work with Prodipe. His ideas are a game changer.
