Of all the components in a mic, the one that has to be infallible is the capsule. For the new Prodipe instrument mic range we have perfected an electret capsule here in France which can handle up to 140dB. And with this level of performance, our mic will preserve the full harmonic envelope and warmth of your instrument.
I have called upon only the best musicians to test the mic systems: Patrick Bourgoin for the saxophone, Yvon Guillard for the trumpet, Claude Salmiéri for percussion of course, Clément Garcin for the guitar and ukulele, Jean-Claude Auclin for the cello and Gérard Prévost for the double bass.
Our inspiration for developing the capsule has been the most reputed mics in the field. We have constantly compared the performance of our mics with DPA's.
Each of the 21 Series mic systems is priced at 109 euros. But don't let the price be the deciding factor. Buy the mic for its pro quality, because that's our objective: to make pro quality available to everyone.
And with this new range, Prodipe have done it again. They just can't stop making their mark on the world of pro audio.
The most important thing for me is the sound of my cello. Ludovic Lanen asked me to help test the Prodipe capsule mic and its clamp.
On the capsule side, the sound is authentic and there's a harmonic warmth that I want to hear in my recordings.
On the clamp side, the rubber grip is easy to attach and the mic adapts perfectly to the cello.
I'm backing Prodipe. I really enjoyed my experience with them and now I can pass on the virtues of an exceptional instrument mic to all my fellow cellists.
A cello, which may be centuries old, has acquired a distinctive sound, so you have to find a system that:
- Constantly reproduces the full palette of timbres,
- Offers consistency across at least 4 octaves, And enables you with complete and utter confidence
- To attach a microphone to a fragile, precious instrument without fear of damaging it,
- To manage a large range of dynamics,
- To follow your inspiration.
The CL21 system is the perfect solution
I discovered the Prodipe CL21 with a lot of curiosity, being a user of other microphones dedicated to the cello but who were worth 4 times this price ....
I started by connecting it live in my sound card without any frills. By looking for the proper positioning of the microphone I quickly arrived at a perfectly balanced sound and thanks to the low-cutter integrated adapter very accurate in the low frequencies.
Whether in studio or on stage, the CL 21 ensures and I have one thing to say at that price is simply stunning.
