    I use a pair of microphones C3BHP to add sound to my pedal harp as part of a harp and electronics project (Avelune), both in the studio and live.

    I was won over from the first use… the rendering of the C3BHP is natural, precise, the roundness of the sound of the instrument is always present. I place them directly using the adhesive putty on the resonance table, one towards the low mids and the other towards the treble (for a stereo rendering).
    Very easy to use (I often transport them for recordings and concerts), installation is done quickly and the sound is immediately fantastic, very little editing required.

    Also a big thank you to Fischer for his advice and responsiveness :) I can only recommend these microphones!

    Amazing pickup. Installed on my wife’s Turkish KamanChello. (Like a kamanche but in the chello range). Very beautiful warm sound. Not harsh. Very resistant to feedback. Gives a natural good sound with strong signal, and doesn’t require much eq to sound natural. I love how easy it is to set this up on this instrument without equipment for installing. The pickup comes with all then necessary Velcro and sticky tack to do a lot of experimenting and future placement on other instruments in the future. Fischer was very very helpful and patient before and after purchase.
    Amazing company. I’m very happy I thing ischell for our instruments. We now have very natural and easy to mix sound for our events and don’t have to worry about feedback anymore. Thanks fischer :)

    Perfect for reinforcing pianos on stage. The spectrum is broad and does not require major correction. I thought I would use it mainly in monitors but it ultimately takes up a significant part of my FOH mix in addition to static. So I am very satisfied. Not yet used on other instruments. but I will see it very well on different stringed acoustics.

    I installed my C3BHP on my oud and I am very satisfied with the result. The oud is very, well, resonant instrument and I spent a good amount of time finding the best mic position and the corresponding EQ and amp settings. Also, the amount of the adhesive gel is very important, too. Take your time and read the manual, this time :-) You can find everything you need to know on the site.
    Now I have very balanced sound with just a bit of natural compression and no feedback at all. Perfect!
    Thank you, ISCHELL!

    I had been looking for a very long time for a microphone capable of sounding a RAV VAST PYGMY (sort of hang) live with very specific constraints (show surrounded by dancers and a poet who declaims texts, for rooms of 500 to a thousand people.
    After trying countless pickups, I was never very happy with the result.
    Either the microphones (style sm 57/58, AKG C 411) were not precise enough, or they were excellent (AKG C 414 or Neumann), but picked up the environment of the show or left feedback depending on the skills of the sound engineer or location.

    And I “fall” on the site Ischell...

    Extraordinary luck, I live 10 min. of the designer (Nantes), which allows me to be able to try the microphone
    And there, the slap.
    Very precise microphone, all the subtleties of the fingers on the instrument are there, the sound is round, full, the bass very present, the treble not garish and the resonance well balanced, as in acoustics.
    With a slight equalization, I rediscover my instrument. No more problems with feedback or picking up surrounding sounds. In short, exactly what I needed.
    The icing on the cake. The friendliness of the designer who takes the time to try the microphone with me and to explain to me how to install it correctly,hange with a critical spirit, all in subtlety, really seeking to understand the musician and his desires, a true passionate about sound who knows how to speak “music”. Thanks to him for his welcome. More briefly, a very nice discovery that I can only recommend!

    Completely satisfied with the new microphone, it's nice to take the time to place it in the ideal place and find the sound of the harp, as I hear it!
