Contact microphones Ischell are recognized for their fidelity to the acoustics of the instrument, they respect the nuances of the musician with precision, the acoustic isolation and the resistance to the feedback are comparable to a pickup and allow strong front/return levels, you can easily use in an amp, apply effects to them etc. The model X48JC is appreciated for its remote electronics which leaves only the microphone kit on the instrument, the 9v battery option allowing to go out in Jack if necessary. The microphone is placed on the soundboard near the bridge with our audio adhesive putty. The models C2BHP et C3BHP also suitable for occasional use, XLR output and operation on phantom power, 220cm of cable...

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 2X48AC combines these two types of microphones on a single system. The system is fixed under the instrument with the putty to fix.

The combination of the two types of microphones is complementary and makes it possible to optimize the sound in all situations by combining power and respect for acoustics. The contact microphone is placed on the table near the bridge and the aerial microphone is fixed on the bridge stand, directed towards the soundboard.

The contact microphone gives you power front / back, 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 frontage with a research of sound faithful to the instrument.

Artists

“It's a very good contact microphone. I also have a piezo cartridge on my cello, but each time I offered the sound system the two cells, the choice was always for the system. ISCHELL ! ” Pierre Thary
“Very good contact microphone with reliable reproduction of the cello on stage. No feedback. A great presence, especially in the bass, which, for my relatively "bassistic" game, is very welcome.
The best compromise is to use the contact microphone for presence, the gain in addition to the "aerial" microphone to be as close as possible to the acoustic sound. Be careful, however, to be rigorous when setting up the microphone on the table: less than a centimeter, the sound change radically! ” Goulven Ka

Clients' reviews

starstarstarstarstarI first bought this pickup for the harp, it's just terrible really. I bought another one for the Cello, it also works great. And finally I bought another one for the violin. In all sincerity, here are finally microphones that allow you to take sound in concert with groups who play loudly or very loudly. No repisse, a very important level of return without feedback. And a very nice grain, it's not at all a cell sound, closed, unusable, it's aerial microphone and it sounds like such. Well done and thank you !!!
