Felice Reggio

Trumpeter - Conducting

  • For years I’ve been using a whole range of clip-on mics for trumpet and bugle, but I’ve never been entirely satisfied with the result.

    After all these years of searching, thanks to my friend, drummer Louis Atzori, I discovered the Prodipe SB21 Lanen and I’ve fallen in love with the consistency and quality of the sound, which preserves its original purity and whose technology is far more effective at reducing valve noise than other mics.

    The SB21’s sound is fantastic and I recommend it to all my colleagues, professionals or otherwise. My sound doesn’t get distorted and I can finally hear it for what it is.

    Thanks so much to Prodipe’s technicians for creating this excellent microphone.


Felice Reggio is a renowned Italian jazz trumpeter who has accompanied, among others, Ennio Morricone, Chet Baker and the Ray Charles Orchestra.

Felice Reggio, who was born in 1960, obtained his trumpet playing diploma at the Guiseppe Verdi Conservatoire National
in Turin. In 1987 he joined the Italian Society of Authors and Publishers before going on to learn the techniques of film score composition with LUIS BACALOV, who composed the Academy Award winning best original score for The Postman.

He then specialised in music information technology at the Niccolò Pananini Conservatoire with Gianni Capobianco as his teacher. He also toured in Italy and abroad, sometimes as an artist in his own right (trio, quintette, big band), sometimes as a guest player with orchestras.

Over the last few years he has expanded his work into composing, arranging and conducting. He recorded his first album (quartet), Clara, in 1985, and has composed numerous jazz, pop and film score pieces. He edited the score for Chet's Romance in 1988, and recorded the album, I Remember Chet, with Nicola Stilo in 1991. In 1995 he recorded the album, Trois pour Chet, which was favoured by the critics.
