    Schertler’s new DYN-B-P48 is a fully balanced, active, dynamic contact microphone with Class A electronics. Specially designed to reproduce the natural sound of the double bass in both amplified and recording environments, the microphone features state-of-the-art, in-house developed activefiltering technology that has enabled it to be precisely matched to the instrument’s sound characteristics. This leads to more “immediate” results for the user, making it possible to achieve amazing sound with only minimal adjustments required.

    $225, shipping included.

    Hello, d.Fly:
    What can you say about the sound of this pickup on your bass?
    The sound samples online are either on awful basses or poorly produced; the sound is brittle and 'orange,' rather than smooth and dark-chocolatey like a fine bass sounds unamplified.
    Did you have to move the element (and the putty) around before you found the "sweet spot"?
    What sort of amp or PA did you use with the p/u?
    Are you dissatisfied with it, changing to mic only, or changing to another product?
    Have you also tried the Stat version of the Schertler?
    Thanks for your input.
