Violin Pickups

The Ischell contact microphone is the basic system to have on the violin. It will seduce you with its fidelity to 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. 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.

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.

Choose your system based on:

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.

Comment and video Pierre Bloch

Customer reviews

starstarstarstarstar“J’ai d’abord acheté ce micro pour la harpe, c’est juste terrible vraiment. J’en ai acheté un autre pour le Violoncelle, ça marche aussi d’enfer. Et finalement j’en ai acheté un autre pour le violon. En toute sincérité voici enfin des micros qui permettent de faire de la prise de son en concert avec des groupes qui jouent fort voir très fort. Aucune repisse, un niveau de retour très important sans Larsen. Et un très joli grain, c’est pas du tout un son de cellule, fermé, inexploitable, c’est du micro aérien et ça sonne comme tel. Bravo et merci !!!” Johnny Ingé son.
