The contact microphone Ischell may be used on many instruments similar to acoustic guitars. The Very Cubano Viola Caipira, the resonator guitars such as Dobro etc. Le J48C is appreciated for its operation on a 9 volt battery, its output Jack asymmetrical, also because it can remain installed on the instrument while remaining removable. The microphone is installed inside under the bridge for the Tres or the Viola Caipira. A version to be installed in the instrument exists with the model inside J48C
To learn more, for even more naturalness and respect for acoustics, you can choose to combine our aerial microphone AirCapt to the contact microphone to adapt to all situations. The 2X48 + ACPJ combines these two types of microphones on the same system.
Choose your system based on:
The aerial microphone AirCapt is generally used in addition to a contact microphone, but also on its own for acoustic stage configurations. It is a very small microphone with a design studied to be placed as close as possible to the source of the sound for more gain, less feedback and less pick-up of ambient noise. It faithfully and very naturally reproduces the sound of your instrument with precision, dynamics and allows comfortable feedback levels on stage. No need for a microphone stand, the musician can move without the sound change. Depending on the instrument it is possible to put it inside or outside. In combination with a contact microphone, it brings fidelity, air, precision in the sound.
Two aerial microphones AirCapt placed in bass and treble opposition will bring you the maximum sound power, sound 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 model 2X48 + AAPJ with two aerial microphones AirCapt is removable. The Jack of the AAPJ pickup kit is attached to the side of the guitar at the bottom of the neck, the preamp 2X48 works on phantom power or 9v battery, XLR outputs and Jack independent usable simultaneously, volume buttons.
The model 2X48 + AAJ is the installed version of 2X48 + AAPJ described above. Drilling is therefore required for the Jack.
The contact microphone AirBag-C suitable for all instruments close to acoustic guitars. The J48C is therefore naturally the most sold. Removable, it does not require any intervention on the instrument while being able to remain permanently installed without hindering the casing (with some exceptions). The microphone is often installed inside under the bridge, but also in other places depending on the instrument. the 9v battery allows use in Jack asymmetric.
The mic AirBag-C is a new type of contact microphone. It performs very well on stringed instruments with a natural sound 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 a removable version to be installed on the instrument. The mic is usually placed inside under the bridge. This system operates on 9 volt battery for approximately 500 hours of use.
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 and makes it possible to optimize the sound in all situations by combining power and respect for 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 instrument's proximity reverberations, playing details, tune, and treble finesse. For situations that require high levels on stage as well as indoors with a search for acoustic sound faithful to the instrument.

”I tried the system ISCHELL with an aerial microphone on my flamenco guitar. So I bought three! More precisely, an aerial for the Flamenca, a sensor for the Oud and also a sensor for the Viola Caipira which is a Brazilian 10-string metal guitar. 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. I was looking for the Grail for a long time, I finally found it! ”Lulu Zerrad
I play Tres Cubano (small Cuban guitar) Paris-cuba-connection. I am very concerned about the sound reproduction of my instrument, looking for the most authentic system, I have tried several systems, but the J48C that I installed the builder in person is breathtaking: intense sound, identical reproduction, that is to say, purely acoustic feeling and sensations and above all: NO LARSENS. HAPPINESS Thank you BIG UP!

I am Brazilian and I have two of their products and I am very happy with those products I have tested all kinds of mics that are out there in the market and I think the X48 + CPJ is the best option for a viola.
