Thank you for thinking about drummers in designing these microphones.
Material of this quality ... at that price! I only have one thing to say: that's great Claude!

For my drum recordings, I now use the new DR8 drum mic set that I pair according to my needs with the DL21 mic.
Once again, Prodipe are offering a professional product of irreproachable quality and irreproachable price, and it's just as good as the bigger brands. Yes, this brand really does think like a musician and I'm 100% behind what they're doing.
Our profession is in need of a rethink, and Prodipe embody that rethink.

Finally microphones designed by a drummer for drummers. I tried them and I adopted them for my percussion.
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.

My DL21 4-mic pack for toms and snare drums is incredibly ergonomic for live playing. It makes a perfect addition to the DR8 drum mic case.
The 21 capsule can handle up to 140dB, and at that level of performance it will preserve the full harmonic envelope, which brings warmth to the sound of your instrument. Highly effective for recording snare drums and toms.
And we've designed a very clever rubber clamp that perfectly adapts to the various hoop sizes, and cushions the vibrations. The capsule stays exactly where it should be when suspended over the drum head and accurately reproduces the sound of your instrument.
You can also use the DL21 mics to record the depth of the timbre of your snare drum by attaching them to the underside of the drum.
