Banjo pickups

The Ischell contact microphone particularly well suited to the banjo when faced with noisy stages. It will seduce you with its fidelity to the acoustics, its resistance to feedback and its possibilities to use effects, to create clean loops. The model inside J48C is an integrated system that is well suited for this type of instrument. The microphone is installed inside near the bridge, so it is invisible and protected. The 9v battery allows asymmetric use which is practical for use in HF for example. A removable version exists, the J48C. The model X48C is also often chosen for its removable side and without battery.

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. This model exists in an “inside” version for a fixed internal installation.

Clients' reviews

starstarstarstarstar I have a 6-string banjo that I am very happy to use this contact microphone with, thank you for this miracle solution!

Guitatti wrote a review for product: inside J48C on Monday February 8th, 2016

starstarstarstarstar First of all the telephone advice which allowed me to choose exactly the microphone according to my rather specific needs for my Deering open back banjo, I wanted to keep the open back sound as much as possible. Then delivery in a perfectly secure package. And finally the installation, which can be done alone, but I chose to leave this task to the luthier Fred KOPO with whom we wisely chose the location according to the expected sound. I must say that the result is perfect. Total absence of feedback at high volume and reproduction of the original sound very faithful. Really a great product. I am won over!
