The Ischell contact microphone particularly suitable for folk acoustic guitars. Recognized for its fidelity to the acoustics of the instrument, its resistance to feedback and its possibilities to use effects, to make clean loops. The model J48C is the most sold, removable, works on 9v battery, does not require intervention on the instrument but can remain installed permanently without hindering the putting in case. The microphone is installed inside under the bridge, so it is invisible and protected. A version to be installed in the instrument with drilling exists, the model inside J48C
To learn more, for even more naturalness and respect for acoustics, you can choose to associate an aerial microphone with the contact microphone to adapt to all situations. The 2X48 + ACPJ combines these two types of microphones on the same system. These models are available in an “inside” version for a fixed internal installation.

The aerial microphone AirCapt is generally used in addition to a contact microphone on a folk guitar. It is a very small microphone with a design studied to be placed as close as possible to the sound source, to have more gain, less feedback and limit the capture of ambient noise. Particularly suitable for acoustic training when used alone, it faithfully and very naturally reproduces the sound of your instrument with precision, dynamics and allows comfortable feedback levels on stage and in the hall. No need for a microphone stand, the musician can move without the sound change. In combination with a contact microphone, it brings fidelity, air, precision in the sound, generally reserved for the room. It is placed on the outside of the instrument, at the edge of the rosette, at the bottom of the neck, treble side, directed towards the strings.
Two aerial microphones AirCapt placed in bass and treble opposition will bring you the maximum acoustic power, management possibilities on stage and in the room, spatialization with a bass and treble stereo, a full and wide sound for configurations and sets of acoustic musicians.

The model J48A below is the best-selling of this category. Removable, this system works on 9v battery for approximately 500 hours of use.
The model inside J48A is the installed version of J48A described above. Drilling is therefore required. The same possibilities with the addition of the potentiometer or volume wheel option
The model 2X48 + AAPJ with its two aerial microphones AirCapt is removable, works on phantom power and 9v battery, has separate XLR and Jack, volume buttons.
The model 2X48 + AAJ is the installed version of 2X48 + AAPJ described above. Drilling is therefore required for the Jack.
The contact microphone AirBag-C Ischell is particularly well suited to folk guitars. The most sold is therefore naturally the J48C. Removable, it does not require any intervention on the instrument and can remain permanently installed without hindering the casing. The microphone is installed inside under the bridge, so it is invisible and protected. Operation on 9v battery allows you to exit Jack asymmetrical which is convenient for entering pedals or an amp.
The mic AirBag-C is a new type of contact microphone. It has very good results on folk guitars with a natural sound and faithful to the instrument, it respects the nuances of the musician with precision. Sound insulation and feedback resistance are comparable to a sensor and allow high levels on stage and in the hall. You can easily use it in an amp, apply effects to it, and make clean loops.

The model J48C is a removable version to be installed on the instrument. The microphone is usually placed under the bridge. This system works on 9v battery for approximately 500 hours of use. Volume wheel option.
The model inside J48C is the installed version of J48C described above. Drilling is therefore required.
The combination of the two types of microphones is complementary on a folk guitar playing on amplified stages and allows to optimize the sound in all the situations by combining power and respect for acoustics.
The contact microphone gives you power on stage and in the hall, great precision in bass and midrange, dynamics. The aerial microphone brings you the reverberations of proximity of the instrument, the playing details, the air, the finesse of the treble… For situations which require high levels on stage as in the room with a search for his acoustic faithful to the instrument .

- Almost nonexistent ambient sound capture.
- The ability to use effects and make clean loops
- Output on Jack asymmetric
- Battery life is approximately 500 hours
- The volume wheel option
- The installation is removable, without drilling or intervention on the instrument.
- The system can remain installed permanently without hindering the casing (rare exceptions)
N ° 2: The model inside J48C is the installed version of J48C described above. Drilling is therefore required.
N ° 3: The model 2X48 + ACPJ combines two types of microphones and optimizes the sound in all situations by combining power and respect for acoustics. The contact microphone gives you power on stage and in the hall, great precision in bass and mids, dynamics ... The aerial microphone brings you the instrument's proximity reverberations, playing details, tune, and treble finesse.
"If you Ischell has since become a real reference in microphones for acoustic instruments, it is for the quality of its products which meet two fundamental needs: resistance to feedback, and fidelity of the acoustic tones of the instrument! ...… Compared to all the systems based on piezo, aerial microphone fixed in the body of the instrument or magnetic microphones, the microphone AirBag-C is the one which most faithfully reproduces the acoustic characteristics of the instrument… ”Jacques Carbonneaux
“Simply the best acoustic sound ever!” Alex De Vree
