Yvon Guillard


  • I have been using PRODIPE for many years because I know the seriousness of their manufacture!

    Equipped among other things with the SB21, I find the natural sound of my instrument, with a cell able to handle the strong pressures of the trumpet, suspended very effectively thanks to its clever clamp!

    With the new UHF system, all the qualities of my wired microphone are now combined. An ideal definition of sound, without any modulation noise or parasite!


Yvon Guillard belongs to a class of musicians whose careers have developed through bold experimentation based on nonstop musical research.

A classical training from a conservatoire combined with a natural affinity for jazz, rhythm and blues paved the way for Yvon Guillard to work with the likes of Weidorje at one end of the spectrum and Jacques Higelin at the other, not forgetting Bernard Lavilliers, Véronique Sanson, Bill Deraime, Serge Gainsbourg, Magma, Youssou N'Dour, l'Affaire Louis Trio, the Silencers, Eva Marchal and Claude Salmiéri.

Forays into cinema, with Eric Serra in Luc Besson's films, as well as numerous TV credits and commercials, but also the promotion of EVI AKAI electronic wind instruments, enrich his musical experience.

At the same time, he composed and recorded, with his brother Alain Guillard, the jazz rock album Pazapa in which all these influences crystallize into an original music that he shares with Debbie Davis, Pip Pyle, Lydia and Sophia Domancich, Klaus Blasquiz and Eric Serra.
