The aerial microphone A1 is generally used in addition to a contact microphone on a kora or a n'goni. 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 usually placed inside, under the bridge.

“Very good microphone for kora ! ” Mamoudou CISSOKO
"The system ischell on my koras, it's honestly the best I've heard and yet I've tried a lot. The sound is simply exceptional, the vcontact microphone is incredible and truly revolutionary. Any pro or savvy hobbyist who is willing to invest and looking for a foolproof solution should try this! Anyway, GO ON …………………… ”
“It's simple, all my instruments are equipped with systems ischell, kora, n'goni and guembri!… ”Stéphane Guyon
“As part of my activity, I had to test several sound systems and without questioning the qualities of the microphones that I usually use, I was won over by the definition of the sound provided by the system. Ischell and the models proposed for the kora”Kaëlig”

starstarstarstarstar To amplify my kora this is the best of the best: easy to install, no wires lying around on the kora everything is inside, a sound faithful to the acoustics of the instrument. In short, an investment that I do not regret and that I recommend to any player of kora
