    To put it simply, this contact mic has been a game changer for me. I’ve rarely had to use my piezo pickup because the Ischell provides me with a microphonic sound with so little coloring that is usable in high volume settings. I’ve played alongside some loud drummers just using this mic and have had no problems keeping up volume and dynamic wise with them. It projects your standard pizz and arco sound beautifully. I also use a lot of extended techniques in my playing as I often perform in free improv and new music settings, and it is able to amplify those sounds like they should be. It’s a revelation to hear the higher overtones, scrapes, rattles, subtones, etc coming out of my amp when using this mic. And it’s just a true dream to finally hear what my bass sounds like coming out of an amp for once. This is now my main pickup and one I highly recommend to my friends and any other bassist looking for an accurate reproduction of your sound that will hang in higher volumes.
