Mandolin Pickups

The Ischell contact microphone is the basic system to have on the mandolin. It will seduce you with its fidelity acoustics, resistance to feedback and opportunities to use effects to make clean loops, ease of use in an amp … The microphone is installed near the bridge outside. One model is particularly well suited, the J48BC9 + CVX which has a 9v battery which allows use with a balanced or unbalanced jack, which is convenient to use with HF or for effects pedals for example. Others will make the choice of a simple X48C fixed on the side…

To go further, for even more naturalness and respect of acoustics, you can choose to associate an aerial mic to the contact microphone to adapt to any situation. The 2X48 + ACVX combines these two types of microphones in the same system.
