These systems are composed of a module X48X, a 2,2mm diameter connection cable with Mini XLR connector and a C2 or C3 microphone kit adapted to your instrument. The 9 volt battery option allows you to power the system autonomously, so you can go out directly Jack or compensate for a lack of phantom power.

    Super happy with this microphone and the service Ischell ! I asked to lengthen the cable to avoid attaching the tape to the violin, so I have the fixation on the cushion and do not damage the varnish! The sound is faithful to the acoustic violin, we keep the roundness and expression: vibrato, nuances, accents and effects of the bow come out very well. No saturation on double strings or feedback, unlike other cartridges. I used it for jazz and traditional music (in small ensembles) and have no complaints, it's perfect! In addition, very good customer service and fast delivery, go for it!!

    It starts with an excellent contact, we take the time to talk about the instrument, the needs, the solutions. Installation very well explained on the site. Okay, but then the sound? The sound !! it's that of my mandolin, a really acoustic sound, with a slight compression, I love it. Finally a real amplification, it's not a piezo, it's not a microphone in front of the instrument with all its drawbacks, no compromise, it's the solution ISCHELLHey guys, well done!

    I am extremely satisfied with the sound of the contact microphone with an oud! The sound volume that can be achieved without feedback near an amplifier is incomparable to what one could obtain with an aerial microphone, and so much more faithful to the acoustic sound than a piezo pickup or other microphones. contact I tried.

    On my floating bridge oud, the contact microphone is installed with the gray putty at position number 2 suggested by the manual Ischell with the low cut deactivated (“flat” position). At a very high volume, I have nevertheless found that the low cut is necessary.

    Unlike many oudists who use systems (Ischell or others) with a connector Jack, I opted for the Mini-XLR version as the connectors are smaller and lighter, and therefore less bulky on the ribs of my oud.

    After having tested several recording microphones with my bass viola da gamba, it turns out that the contact microphone X48 + CVX gives excellent results!
    I specify that I am very demanding when the result that I wanted to obtain from my recordings because it is for professional use.
