Aerial microphones are preferred in the field of flamenco, it is the playing of the musician, the sound of the instrument, the construction of the guitars that imposes it. A system with an aerial microphone like the J48A will therefore fit perfectly. The mic AirCapt placed at the edge of the rosette at the bottom of the handle does not interfere with the game and clearly improves the admissible power in return. Removable, it does not require any intervention on the instrument and can remain permanently installed without hindering the casing. No need for a microphone stand, the musician can move without the sound being heard.hange. Exit Jack asymmetric. A version to be installed in the instrument exists, the model inside J48A
To go further, you can opt for two aerial microphones with the 2X48 + AAPJ. For very noisy scenes, it may be possible to use a contact microphone such as the J48C or to adapt to all situations a 2X48 + ACPJ with contact microphone + aerial combined on the same system. These models are available in an “inside” version for fixed internal installation.
Choose your system based on:
The aerial microphone AirCapt is most used for a flamenco guitar in mono or stereo. 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 music ensembles, it faithfully and very naturally reproduces the sound of your instrument with precision, dynamics and allows comfortable feedback levels on stage. It is placed at the edge of the rosette on the treble side, directed towards the strings. No need for a microphone stand, you can move around without the soundhange!
Two aerial microphones AirCapt placed in the bass and treble positions will bring you the maximum sound power, level management possibilities on stage and in the hall, spatialization with bass and treble stereo, full and wide sound for acoustic configurations.

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 aerial microphone is privileged in the field of flamenco but on a noisy or very noisy stage, it becomes difficult to use it because of the feedback and the capture of ambient noise. The contact microphone AirBag-C can in this case take over. On a flamenco guitar it is usually placed inside under the bridge.
The mic AirBag-C is a new type of contact microphone. The sound is natural 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 removable. 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 flamenco guitar playing on amplified stages and allows to optimize the sound in all the situations by combining power and respect for the 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 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 .

The model 2X48 + ACPJ is a removable system with a contact microphone and an aerial microphone, volume knobs, XLR outputs and Jack available simultaneously for each microphone, easily accessible low cut, operation on phantom power and 9v battery.
The model 2X48 + ACJ is the installed version of 2X48 + ACPJ described above. Drilling is therefore required for the Jack.
N ° 1: The J48A is the best-selling of this category. Aerial microphone particularly appreciated by Flamenco guitarists on stage, it optimizes the sound recording and combines fidelity to the acoustics of the instrument and the advantages of an on-board system.
- The musician can move without the sound change.
- The return power is optimized.
- Output on Jack asymmetric.
- Works on 9v battery
- Battery life is approximately 500 hours
- 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 2X48 + AAPJ, it's two aerial microphones placed in opposition bass and treble that will bring you the maximum sound power, management possibilities on stage and in the room, spatialization with a bass and treble stereo, full and wide sound for professional acoustic configurations.
N ° 3: The model inside J48A is the “Installed” version of the J48A described above. It therefore has the same basic functions, the 9v battery option but also the option of potentiometer or volume wheel. Drilling is required but the guitar is then without visible wiring except the microphone on the edge of the rosette.
… I have tried many classical guitar systems but it's always a compromise. When I heard the sound of the system Ischell I was so surprised by the natural sound of the guitar, even under difficult acoustic conditions. Since I use the system Ischell I am on stage as in studio, I hear all the frequencies and harmonics that I missed before…
What is striking about this system is its transparency. The test is simple: we set the volume to zero and then gradually increase. The volume change, not the sound. It is that of the instrument simply amplified ...
… The sound is very natural and the quality leaves no doubt. The system is easy to use for sound engineers with a good level of feedback! Well done !…
I tried the microphone J48A on my flamenco guitar and I am very very happy with it: compared to the D ** **** G, equivalent sound quality, each microphone has its qualities, but big advantages: in addition to the price 2 times cheaper, we have between + 30% and 40% more power, as well as a much greater solidity and convenience of use, no risk of damaging a very thin cable or the clamp as in the other system, nothing to install, it you just have to plug in! Also, I tried the mic J48A in my Marshall AS50D amp and the sound is really great!
I still have my aerial mic / contact mic system on my Richard Baudry nylon guitar…. It is still so deadly !! … As much live as in recording….
