The Prodipe TT1 Ludovic Lanen microphone is, hands down, a fantastic microphone that was developed by the French audio company Prodipe. The goal of the Ludovic Lanen was simple: they wanted to create a good budget microphone that didn’t compromise on sound and did not feel at all cheap in any way. What they came up with was the TT1. This microphone has a typical frequency response from 50 Hz to the typical hand held dynamic 15,000 Hz, and has a cardioid polar pattern. So the specs are nothing particularly fancy. In fact, those two particular things are straight copies of the SM58, a microphone more than triple the cost of the Prodipe. What makes it special is the fact that the company Prodipe simply went through a bunch of Chinese capsules and found one that was both cheap and biased in a certain way to lend the microphone a certain flavor. What ends up happening with this microphone is that there is a peak in the low end and a bit of clean air at the top. This makes the microphone sound very unlike a typical stage microphone, because it is surprisingly detailed.

OVERALL OPINION

The incredibly special thing about this microphone is that it costs less than $30. This makes it possible to acquire many of them very quickly. In use, I have found that these are not great microphones when you put many of them on many voices, as the lower frequencies do tend to get a little bit bloated. However, these can be used on pretty much anything, with it having a wide pickup pattern and a very high level of gain. On guitar and toms it sounds unbelievably expensive, or example. So if you need a workhorse that an double as a fantastic vocal microphone for live and studio settings, look no further.
