    When I amplify a piano with my Ischell it's just like a fish in water: silence and my bubbles <3

    Easy to follow installation instructions on my double bass, I was up and running very quickly. I had been attracted to the Ischell from various youtube reviews and comparisons and I am pleased to say I am delighted with the sound straight out of the box.

    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.

    correct sound quality (microphone placed outside the kora, near the easel) in combination with an aerial audio technique. Experiments still in progress

    First concert 1 week after purchase, excellent! Installed on a cello to play metal among other things, no feedback problem and I really like the rendering.
    Merci ^^

    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!
    Ps 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 !!!
    Yours,
    Susanne

    I amplify my double bass ¾ with a microphone ISCHELL X-Jack. The result is beyond all expectations (in association with a Schertler jam 200 amp). The acoustic sound is really there, no distortion, warmth of the sound of my counter and precision are there.
    The pose is delicate and took a lot of time, you have to be precise and patient, but the help ofIschell was fast and efficient, it is definitely worth taking the time to install, because after that it is only happiness, the result is breathtaking. I thank in passing Ischell for the kindness and great professionalism towards me.

    Excellent product… Used alternately on a Celtic Camac harp and a classic Salvi…

    Tried on a rare instrument, the zena, invented by the Breton luthier Gweltas Simon: a kora pentatonic with, between the 2 rows of playing strings, 6 sympathetic bronze strings… Placed inside the body, glued directly to the skin, under the bridge, the X-Jack offers me to date the most effective alternative and closest to acoustic sound, including much of that beautiful resonance inherent in sympathetic strings.
    The advantage, on stage, is that I can both send the sound of the instrument to the control room, via XLR, and to an amp that I use as a feedback and on which I can adjust what I want, via jack. Exactly what I was looking for !
    Essential: the sausage must be well rolled and not allow air to pass at all. Otherwise, it's all the sound that change and it has nothing to do with it.
    A microphone that I recommend without hesitation to any fan of kora and kamale n'goni.

    Testing on an oud gives a very good result. You have to take the time to find the best location. I tried it live with a microphone to open up the sound a little more and the result was very good.

    Perfect for the harp !!!!
    On acus8 amp, jack like in xlr, the only trick is to check that the sausage does not let air pass. If this is the case zero feedback and very good sound: beautiful treble, serious mat, defined and present.
    Nickel also on 48-track concert hall mixer in XLR… in short, the reliable and easy solution !!!
    PS: also tried on cello: very easy and very well defined !!!!
    In short: for us who are just starting to amplify, in a small combo or on a medium stage (Italian theater type 800/1000 people), well it's nickel: clean, beautiful and easy!

    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. Tea X-jack on my bass is the best pickup I have used. I highly recommend it.
