Double bassist

  • The Prodipe BL21 double bass microphone allows me to hear the sound of my bass in the most acoustic way possible, both at the bow and in pizzicato.

    Easy to install, it offers free use of any movement both live and in the studio.

    Many bassists should turn to this product, presenting an amazing value for money.

    Ideally coupled with the NATURAL 6 Cherrywood for an amplification solution close to Hi-Fi, adaptable in all places and powerful enough!
