PL21 Salmiéri Percussions: three mics pack for almost all percussions.
A totally new range of instrument mic systems for recording all your percussion instruments live.
For congas, bongos, djembes, cajons, timbales, rototoms, tambourines, tablas, batas, goblet drums, bendirs, bodhrans, toms, snare drums, tambors, surdos, talking drums, udu, steel drums and many more.
We have perfected an electret capsule that can take up to 140dB. At that level of performance the capsule will preserve the full harmonic envelope and warmth of your instrument.
Clamp(s) and XLR adaptor are supplied for wired mic use (48V phantom power supply required). The mic can also convert to a UHF mic by connecting it to the Prodipe DSP/UHF Bodypack system (specially adapted for the Lanen 21 capsule impedance).
The top features of the PL21 Salmiéri Percussion mic
- Excellent natural sound.
- Very high acceptable sound pressure level (140 dB).
- UHF compatible (with Prodipe DSP/UHF Bodypack system - sold separately).
- Flexible gooseneck for fast, easy mounting.
- Lightweight rubber clamp specific to the instrument.
- Very high level of protection from instrument vibration.
- Mini XLR to XLR connector adaptor ensures that the mic lead is properly positioned on your instrument (48V phantom power supply required for wired connection).
Presentation by Claude Salmiéri
"You can use the PL21 PACK alongside a drum mic pack to record percussion instruments live: snare drums, toms, congas, djembes, you name it.
On the one side they’re light and they don’t take up much room (if you’re a drummer, you’ll know what I mean). On the other side they’re rugged and can handle up to 140dB, giving you sound clarity and accuracy with exceptional dynamics, on stage or in the studio.
With Prodipe’s specially designed clamps, the PL21 can be positioned very quickly and I know I keep on saying this, but once again Prodipe have given drummers a piece of professional equipment which is spot on performance wise and great value for money."
