stompboxjon's review"Great instrument Microphone"

Prodipe Microphone A1 Duo
The Prodipe A1 was manufactured in France and it was created for home recording musicians that are on tight budgets (which fits most of use). The design of this microphone is very sleek and futuristic, I love the way it looked when I had it set up in my home studio. Everyone else loved the way it looked to. The Prodipe A1 is really flat 50hz to 2khz. It does seem to have some sort of a high end boost with recording but it doesn’t over do it. You can tell the boost in the high end when you listen to it in your monitors you will be able to tell how it brings it too life. But it doesn’t just boost the high end frequencies leaving a lot of fuzz behind. It still provides a natural boost without putting any hissing or loud high end annoying sounds with it. It has a very good bass response as well which will allow you to use the A1 on many different instruments, most microphones struggle with those instruments with a lot of deep tones. This microphone will sound great with almost any instrument you put in front of it.


I love the Universal ability of this microphone, it just flat out gives you a great sound on your instruments especially those low end instruments, even with low end brass instruments. The quality of sound recording you get with this microphone is really good for the price that you will pay. I loved the choice in using the A1 by Prodipe. I still to this day recommend this microphone for instruments to fellow musicians, and I still get the chance to use this microphone depending on where I go to record some masters at. It sounds great on acoustic guitars as well. I have used it as the main guitar microphone for years.

Prodipe Microphone A1 Duo
Purchased pair, cheap € 100 both.
Loses its quality over time ... and fast!


In comparison with an older, new sound completely different!
Well, well .. it's crap that loses its quality over time (very fast)
BUT, I find them very well for me battery returns OH my headphone.
If this is such a case, it's a nice savings!

Prodipe Microphone A1 Duo
Small-diaphragm electret microphone for acoustic instruments taken (guitars, etc.) or battery, among other


Used one year, there a few times, then abandoned.
The price gives the impression of a bargain, unfortunately, after some time, the membrane and the micro discharge loses its sharp attack and ...

I've had 2 or 3 years
is not the top, but at this price is not bad (50 € ...)
it is not a Neumann is on,
I used it in a trio with a pair of Oktava, and frankly,
Oktava are the best without any doubt, there 's more and more capsules with a Oktava,
Otherwise, I have a b1 studio project, I prefer to view micro cheap
but b1 is more open bcp (cardioid), I use version to my home studio, on stringed instruments
So I take the A1 in low cost solution, rather on stage or outside ..
m'enfin, one of his four, I am blazing a pair of Oktava, given the price and versatility

Prodipe Microphone A1 Duo
Micro-making of its versatile, I use it primarily to make the sound of my battery with no other micro elsewhere (except in a micro rotten crossroads in my bass drum with the bass all the way to the equalo). So it's a micro elecrtostatique Alymer 48v phantom mandatory. Possibilities swich a high pass filter directly above. It is intuitive, you clip the mic, you branch, you play.


"Hi, I do not want to pay 350 for the pair rode NT5 What is your least expensive overhead you advise a beginner in making drum sound ?..."
This is how I found these two boxes contenan Prodipe A1 there is more than a week. The first observation pakaging all rotten. Needless say to me, even to the extent that the microphone is served in a waterproof bag contenans him even a bag of salt against moisture all supplied in a foam that maintains the microphone and very well and also found in a cavity provided for this purpose pliers and hats, that's very good. What is less so is that everything is in a box no thicker than a box of cereal packets and no notice or paper is provided with quelquonque, for curve reponce Frequency directionality or characteristics, must be read on the box, seri no, it smells a micro economics before even having to connect.
I a branch at the beginning, history has my little mixer (mx2/10 yam) and I play earphones (senha HD 290), first impressions: Oaaao, it sounds like real drums a cot the sound is great respect, after reading a small curve in frequency reponce, I note that it is relatively plastic, there is certainly a slight bump to 3000Hz, but personally I feel it. Anyway the sound is very clean, good point.
Second good point, which is more gadjet but hey if you ca used beeps in your bass drum separately (recommended), there is a small mic on the high pass swich asser practice. The sound is very clean, I'm surprised it is not recommend for making string sound (even if I did not test still has AC): The definition is very good, with my ping rise is very well transcribed.
The reponce in frequency is wide and flat, the characteristic honest, and it smells multipurpose use: it works very well in overhead battery but I know that making the piano or chamber music is very cool ( luis careful not too big a meter sound pressure, in my opinion he would like to be in the flag of copper, it is not meant to).
Celas said I hope he is strong, it's a good electrostatic okay so it can not be, but in any case, there are marked "live and studio" on the box, personal I do not see me from anywhere with lugging my lair not very strong, we'll see over time.
Phantom power supply required, so as XLR cabling (I actually have ^ ^), I regret just a packing list on the cheap but the price (I got a 65 one), it does not matter. In any case we can make things very HOnet with this microphone, it does not disappointed me.
A meter in any hands inexperienced or greedy for knowledge in the hands of pros who n'on not want to risk taking a walk around their overs at 400.
In short very good value for price, EXCELLENT same, what has it taken the super class. One feels not the ear that has a first prize Aillan test Beringher b5, though more expensive, I prefer the A1, because the level difference is Cerrer then for 20 or 30 euros less ...

J'emmet just a reserve on his life, but ...
For an overhead overhead is honest has been a pittance for what it is. What more?

Council has the con, grow well and back to his feet to leave a micro comfortable margin on the arm of a drummer, a Mechan wand into the microphone, or just in the foot could record long and painful cracks in the ears or m I just rot micro irreversible (electrostatic forces). I ADVISED board con ^ ^
