Patrick Bourgoin

Saxophonist - Flautist

  • Impossible is not French!

    This maxim adapts perfectly to PRODIPE which systematically goes forward by having the know-how, but especially the means of its ambitions, and to the adventure that I was able to live by participating in the development of the new microphones of the Series 21, in particular the SB21 Lanen.

    PRODIPE and its «Research and Development» team have set themselves a goal: to create a proximity microphone to be fixed on instruments such as saxophone, trumpet, trombone but also different percussion, for a price four times cheaper than the best references of the genre. Successful bet!!

    Thanks to the cell, the soul of this microphone, which can handle 140dB, musicians can now count on an exceptional sound restitution. Then why pay more?

    The evidence does not wait for time. And it is not over! Now my microphone is PRODIPE!
