Contact microphones Ischell are recognized for their fidelity to the acoustics of the instrument, they respect the nuances of the musician with precision, the acoustic isolation and the resistance to the feedback are comparable to a pickup and allow strong front/return levels, you can easily use in an amp, apply effects to them etc. The microphone is installed near the bridge on the outside. Several models may be suitable, including the X48JC with a microphone kit on the instrument and remote electronics with XLR output, with a 9-volt battery option allowing output in Jack with an adapter cable. Others will choose theX48XC for a minimum of weight on the instrument with mini XLR connectors or a simple C2BHP ou C3BHP for occasional use...

To learn more, for even more naturalness and respect for acoustics, you can choose to associate an aerial microphone with the contact microphone to adapt to all situations. The 2X48 + ACVX combines these two types of microphones on the same system.

Commentary and video by Lulu Zerrad

“What is striking about this system is its transparency. The test is simple: we set the volume to zero and then gradually increase. The volume change, not the sound. It is that of the instrument simply amplified. I was looking for the Grail for a long time, I finally found it! ”Lulu Zerrad

starstarstarstarstar This system change life! By correcting with a Headway, I manage to have at high volume a sound almost identical to the natural sound of the Oud. It's awesome :-)

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