Archtop Jazz Guitar Pickups

The Ischell contact microphone can be used on an archtop Jazz guitar to amplify the acoustic sound of the instrument. Recognized for its fidelity to the instrument, its resistance to feedback and the possibility of using effects, to make clean loops. The Ischell models inside BOX + CPJ ou X48 + CPJ are the best-selling, removable, they do not require any intervention on the instrument but they can remain permanently installed without hindering the casing. The microphone is usually placed on the soundboard, under the strings.

It is possible to install the microphone kit permanently with drilling. The Jack must be able to pass through the gills. The microphone wire then emerges through the gills for a clean installation.

Commentary and video by Alex Goodman at the Montreux Jazz Festival 2015

“The microphone is great! I brought in my acoustic for a set and am having them install the mic so haven't heard it yet. Im really starting to figure out the contact mic on my main archtop though. I got an inline attenuator to help get the right signal strength for live performance and its really adding a lot to my sound. I actually used it on a recording in Canada last week and it was a great addition in the studio. ”
