Classical guitar Pickups

Aerial microphones are used primarily in the field of classical music, in an acoustic stage context. A system with an aerial microphone like the J48A will therefore fit perfectly. The AirCapt microphone placed at the edge of the soundhole at the bottom of the neck significantly improves the allowable power in return. Removable, it does not require any intervention on the instrument. The musician can move, the sound does not change. The 9v battery option allows use in symmetrical or asymmetrical mode … A version with two microphones exists, the 2X48 + AAPJ

To go further, for electro stages or to use effects or loops, you can choose to use a contact microphone like the J48C, for its exceptional fidelity to the acoustics of the instrument and resistance before feedback . Or to adapt to all situations, a 2X48 + ACPJ with contact microphone + aerial combined on the same system. These models are available in “inside” version for a fixed installation.

Choose your system based on:

Your conditions of use

  • For noisy stages > A contact microphone.
  • For acoustic stages > One or two aerial microphones.
  • To adapt to all situation > Both types of microphone.
 

The installation mode

  • Removable > The Jack is fixed with double-sided adhesive, scratch or putty, according to the instrument

The AirCapt microphone is the default microphone for a classical guitar in mono or stereo mode. It is a very small microphone designed to be placed closer to the sound source for more gain, less feedback and ambient sounds. Particularly suited to acoustic stages, it faithfully and very naturally reproduces the sound of your instrument with precision, dynamics and allows comfortable levels on stage without microphone stand. It is usually placed outside, at the edge of the soundhole, treble side, pointing upward.

Two AirCapt mics placed in the bass / treble position will bring you maximum sound power, front / back management capabilities, spatialization with bass / treble stereo, full and wide sound for acoustic configurations.

The combination of the two types of microphones is complementary for an instrument playing on electro stages and optimizes the sound in all situations by combining power and respect of the acoustic sound of the instrument.

The contact microphone gives you the power for the front / back, high accuracy in bass and midrange, dynamics … The aerial microphone brings you the reverberations of the instrument, player details, the air, the finesse in the treble. For situations that require high levels on stage and front and to have an acoustic sound, faithful to the instrument.

…Once I listen the sound of the Ischell System and I was so surprised about the natural sound of a guitar, even in difficult acoustic circumstances. Since I use the Ischell System I feel on stage like in a studio, listen to all frequencies and the overtones, which I was before always missing. Now I have to play more exactly, because you can listen all the little details of playing like at a studio recording. The best pick up system I’ve ever heard!…

Comment and video of Lulu Zerrad

…Ce qui est frappant avec ce système c’est sa transparence. Le test est simple : on met le volume à zéro puis on augmente progressivement. Le volume change, pas le son. C’est celui de l’instrument simplement amplifié…
…Le son est très naturel et la qualité ne laisse pas de doutes. Le système est facile à utiliser pour les ingénieurs du son avec un bon niveau en retours ! Bravo !…

Customer reviews

starstarstarstarstar J’ai essayé le micro J48A sur ma guitare flamenca et en suis très très content : par rapport au D** ****G, qualité du son équivalente, chaque micro a ses qualités, mais gros avantages : en plus du prix 2 fois moins cher, on a entre + 30% et 40% de puissance en plus, ainsi qu’une bien plus grande solidité et commodité d’utilisation, pas de risque d’endommager un cable très fin ou la pince comme dans l’autre système, rien à installer, il y a juste à brancher ! Aussi, j’ai essayé le micro J48A dans mon ampli Marschall AS50D et le son est vraiment super !
