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 model X48JC  is appreciated for its electronics remote from the instrument, only the microphone kit is fixed on the tailpiece, XLR output and with the 9v battery option, the possibility of going out in Jack with an adapter cable. The microphone is placed on the soundboard near the bridge. Other versions often chosen for occasional use are the models C2BHP et C3BHP, simple systems with XLR output and phantom power operation.

To learn more, for even more naturalness and respect for acoustics, you can choose to associate an air microphone with the contact microphone to adapt to all situations. The 2X48AC combines these two types of microphones on a single system. The system is fixed under the instrument with the putty to fix.
