Contact Microphones

Contact microphones Ischell C1, C2 and C3 are new types of pickups that attach to the instrument with a specific putty audio adhesive. The sound is comparable to an aerial microphone, fidelity, warmth, width, air… With the acoustic insulation and the feedback resistance of a piezo pickup, allowing to play in conditions of high levels on stage. You can easily use it in an amp, apply effects or make clean loops. A revolution in the amplification of many instruments on stage! An innovation ischel


Miniature Aerial Microphone

The aerial microphone ischel A1 is a miniature condenser microphone with a design studied to be placed as close as possible to the sound on the instrument. It optimizes sound recording with more gain, less feedback and less pick-up of ambient noise. Particularly suitable for acoustic situations or in addition to our contact microphone, it faithfully and very naturally reproduces the sound of your instrument with precision, dynamics and allows comfortable levels on stage without a microphone stand.

    Here is finally a microphone (C3) without feedback with respect for the sound. I will perform changmicrophone placement elements to optimize sound.
    I took two. the other will be installed indoors to preview the sound.
    I recommend.

    Un X48JC with a C3 microphone on my double bass. The sound is crazy. Note the knowledge base is very complete and very clear and must be taken into account! Especially on the placement of the microphone. Originally I ordered a X-Jack but they very kindly advised me to go on their new product and I'm super happy. it's not what I ordered but they advised me to

    I had been looking for a very long time for a microphone capable of sounding a RAV VAST PYGMY (sort of hang) live with very specific constraints (show surrounded by dancers and a poet who declaims texts, for rooms of 500 to a thousand people.
    After trying countless pickups, I was never very happy with the result.
    Either the microphones (style sm 57/58, AKG C 411) were not precise enough, or they were excellent (AKG C 414 or Neumann), but picked up the environment of the show or left feedback depending on the skills of the sound engineer or location.

    And I “fall” on the Ischell site…

    Extraordinary luck, I live 10 min. of the designer (Nantes), which allows me to be able to try the microphone
    And there, the slap.
    Very precise microphone, all the subtleties of the fingers on the instrument are there, the sound is round, full, the bass very present, the treble not garish and the resonance well balanced, as in acoustics.
    With a slight equalization, I rediscover my instrument. No more problems with feedback or picking up surrounding sounds. In short, exactly what I needed.
    The icing on the cake. The friendliness of the designer who takes the time to try the microphone with me and to explain to me how to install it correctly,hange with a critical spirit, all in subtlety, really seeking to understand the musician and his desires, a true passionate about sound who knows how to speak "music". Thanks to him for his welcome. More briefly, a very nice discovery that I can only recommend!
