The Ischell X48C deluxe contact microphone is perfectly suited for the handpan.

Manufactured and assembled in France by Ischell, this pickup with removable installation has a 45 cm cable, XLR output, and works on phantom power. High levels on stage.

The X48C is equipped with the new type of contact microphone developed by the brand ISCHELL in 2008 and which succeeds previous technologies, in order to reproduce with the greatest fidelity the acoustics of your instrument, the attack, the timbre, the woody color, your playing and your playing nuances, without the problems of feedback and resumption of surrounding sounds (Repisse). Our hybrid Air / Contact technology works without a filter between the diaphragm and the soundboard of your instrument. We thus reproduce on a reduced and isolated scale an ultimate aerial sound recording, controlled by the immediate environment of our specific audio adhesive paste.

The sound is comparable to an aerial microphone, fidelity, warmth, width, air… With the acoustic insulation and the feedback resistance of a cell allowing high levels face / returns. You can easily use it in an amp, apply effects or make clean loops. A revolution in the amplification of many instruments on stage! An innovation ISCHELL!

The pickup can be fixed inside the handpan and remain in place (test according to your model to find the right location), or positioned outside on the dome or the bottom and removed after playing (reusable fixing paste). The bloc system can be fixed on the bottom or on the handpan stand.
