Product Description

Swiss-made Schertler DYN-Series electrodynamic contact transducers are designed to be used in a variety of applications, from home recording to live performances, encompassing all types of music and musical playing styles where the utmost in accurate acoustic reproduction is required. DYN-Series transducers provide a sound that is exceptionally “acoustic” in nature - the sound is close to that of a studio microphone, but without the on-stage problems of bleed or feedback. The Schertler DYN-M is the most natural-sounding mandolin transducer available. The easily-installed contact microphone (attached to the instrument's top with the included, inert putty) delivers a warm, accurate reproduction of YOUR instrument’s acoustic tone, regardless of your style. Used and endorsed by mandolin virtuoso Chris Thile. DYN-Series transducers ship in an elegant wooden box.

Verified Purchase
I've only played one gig with this pickup but I'm very impressed. Mandolin pickups tend to over-accentuate the highs I find, giving a brittle, harsh sound. Not so this pickup - it really does sound very true to the acoustic sound of the instrument.

I went direct from the instrument to the mixer, and I'm not sure that I'd bother with a preamp. The signal is strong enough to not really require a preamp, and the tonal balance is so good that I don't feel the need for any further control.

I had some reservations about the method of affixing the pickup to the instrument top, but it works surprisingly well. On my first attempt I had no problems putting it on, and it seemed quite solidly fixed. Plus, if someone does trip over the cord, it might be just as well if it comes off the instrument. Yes, it's a little fiddly to have to go through fitting business this every time you play in public, but the upside is that:
- You don't need to modify your instrument at all
- You can easily switch the pickup from one instrument to another

All in all, yes expensive but it does exactly what it claims to do.
