    I have the microphone for a month now and I am quite pleased with it. The sound of my n’goni is very detailed and sharp. I recommend this product to anyone looking for a natural sounding representation of an acoustic instrument.

    The Ischell is the best pickup I have ever had on my bass, by a long shot, and I’ve tried almost all of them! No more of that weird tinney piezo sound. It’s the perfect compromise between a natural microphone sound, with pickup volume and presence. Fischer was a huge help too. My package was held up in US customs, and I sent him one email, and he somehow got them to magically release it a day or two later.

    I bought an X-Jack system for my double bass about 6 months ago. It’s a very organic sounding mic! For loud situations I have to rely on my piezo pickup mostly (but I often send both signals to sound engineer, ’cause the mic gives ‘air’ to the sound, and he blends them) but for medium volume gigs I love to use the Ischell. I even compared it to one famous branded hi-end mic in a studio. We vere all surprised: they sounded pretty much identical, the difference in sound was really slight! So I highly recommend the Ischell mic!
    P.s. The instructions provided helped a lot! Sometimes, with different basses it might take 30-40 minutes to find the best place for intallation. Moving the mic slightly (3-5 mm) to one or the other side may produce great effect on the sound! It’s like an equalizer.

    I just got the X-Jack and installed it in my Celtic Harp. Installation was easy, I found the right spot in the harp rightaway (in the middle between the strings and the side of the harp works best with my gut strung Salvi Egan). Plugged it in my amp (Acus Cremona) – and WOW, what a sound!!! Warm, strong, and precisely defined. Ideal to playing harp via a Looper!
    Thanks for this great product and your excellent customer service!!!

    The X-jack allows the Phantom powered XLR jack to be side by side with a powered 1/4in jack. Maximum versatility, plug and play, plus the jack is well designed and work really well. The 9v is not as hot a sound as the XLR jack (9v vs. 48v) but it is great to have if you may be using amps without phantom power. I am really glad I ordered this version. The X-jack on my bass is the best pickup I have used. I highly recommend it.
