    Super micro, this is the first time that I have a simple system that faithfully reproduces the acoustic sound of my gypsy guitar. The installation instructions are very clear and allow you to quickly find the right position for the microphone.

    Un X48JC with a C3 microphone on my double bass. The sound is crazy. Note the knowledge base is very complete and very clear and must be taken into account! Especially on the placement of the microphone. Originally I ordered a X-Jack but they very kindly advised me to go on their new product and I'm super happy. it's not what I ordered but they advised me to

    Just perfect ! Super advice by phone to guide in the choice of the microphone according to my use. Very satisfied, easy to install on my gypsy guitar (the first time!), used several times in stage condition on an AER, the microphone responds perfectly, no feedback.

    Super quality contact microphone for cello. I use it with an ampliAER, the perfect combo. Advice for choosing the best microphone, fast delivery and quality after-sales service. In short, I recommend.

    Excellent product. I finally found a qualitative solution to sound my hammered dulcimer.

    First of all the telephone advice which allowed me to choose exactly the microphone according to my rather specific needs for my Deering open back banjo, I wanted to keep the open back sound as much as possible. Then delivery in a perfectly secure package. And finally the installation, which can be done alone, but I chose to leave this task to the luthier Fred KOPO with whom we wisely chose the location according to the expected sound. I must say that the result is perfect. Total absence of feedback at high volume and reproduction of the original sound very faithful. Really a great product. I am won over!

    My name is Giovanni Weiss. I would like to briefly tell you my meeting with Ischell.
    I'm playing 32 years of Django Reinhardt guitars / selmer guitars and have always the same problem, the acoustic decrease of the guitar. I tried various microphones and pickup systems, and they all failed after the first concert. I have a project with the NDR Bigband and unfortunately I have mostly because I do not use my Django guitar because I simply can not get through as soon as the sound is about right, humming and whistling everything so loud that you have to make it quieter again. A few days ago I got the Ischell system. When I unpacked, I thought of myself a new one I made it and first the acoustic of the guitar checked, if something changes, but everything well. Then I connected it to my amp, made a few settings and saw there finally there was pressure and still an acoustic sound. After a few more settings and recordings, I was thrilled and noticed that now the problems of picking up these guitars are finally solved, and in a perfect way without damaging the guitar or changing anything. I'm really looking forward to playing my Django guitar on every concert !! THANK YOU ISCHELL !!! I will also try the system with the Air Mic and the Contact Mic and tell you. Giovanni weiss

    Installation today on a Weissenborn! difficult to make simple as the sound quality, the active power of the microphone, the perfect reproduction of the instrument is respected, a sound of unparalleled purity ... Right settings on a 100 W ACUS amplifier, and there! Boom the ball! advice to the undecided .. Going for it is a bomb.

    I have used this mic on several gigs now and it is a truly fantastic unit! The sound is excellent and no feedback! I'm using a Zoom A3 box in between the mic and the PA so I can use the EQ and boost function. Actually I just roll off some treble and that's about it. It doesn't need much at all. Excellent product !!

    It's great, natural, hyper dynamic with a lot of sensations close to the natural. For the oud, I think it is the most faithful solution that exists!

    I am Brazilian and I have two of their products and I am very happy with these products.
    I have tested all kinds of mics that exist on the market, and I think the X48 + CPJ is the best option for a viola.
