Yvon Guillard


  • I've been using Prodipe equipment for several years now because I know how much attention they pay to the manufacturing side.

    After testing the new SB21 instrument mic, I decided to have one of my own.

    It gives me the natural sound of my instrument; it gives me a capsule that can handle the high pressure levels associated with the trumpet and it gives me an ingenious clamp that is very effective for positioning the mic.

  • The RSL blew me away! When you compare it to classic ribbon mics, the Prodipe RSL offers a similar level of performance.

    It gives you everything you'd want from a ribbon mic - softness, roundness, warmth and a natural reproduction of the instrument sound, for example, with a guitar or any other harmonically rich acoustic instrument the RSL brings out the purity of the timbre and the presence of the instrument with incredible accuracy.

    The Prodipe RSL fills a gap in the market for this type of mic and my feeling is that no studio or home studio should be without one.

  • Over the years Prodipe have become an extremely innovative brand.

    The sound definition of my instrument in the UHF band is astonishing. And there is no modulation noise or static.
