Piano Pickups

The Ischell contact microphone is the basic system for the piano confronted with high levels on stage. It is recognized for its fidelity to acoustics, its resistance to feedback, the ease of use on amp and the possibility to use effects, to make clean loops and so on. The X-Jack is the most sold, appreciated for its Jack and XLR outputs available simultaneously, the 9v battery and also because it is removable and does not require any intervention on the instrument. The microphone is placed on the soundboard. The other version often chosen is the X48C for its simplicity, XLR output, works with phantom power…

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 2X48AC is perfect for that.

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

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.

“Un système très efficace et surtout proche de la réalité quand au rendu sonore. Très facile d’utilisation en concert tout en respectant le timbre de l’instrument. Enfin une cellule digne de ce nom”
Tristan Cordelette (monitor man avec “Olivia Ruiz”, Face mix avec “Ben l’Oncle Soul”)
