SCHERTLER DYN P48 Series contact microphones are high-quality transducers designed for
professional applications. Suitable for use on a variety of instruments in both live/amplified and
studio environments, these fully-balanced, active, dynamic contact microphones can be safely
applied to even the most valuable of instruments using the special adhesive putty provided.
The microphones can be quickly transferred between instruments during performances or recording
sessions. Once in place, their lightweight design makes them unobtrusive to the performer.
A balanced XLR connector enables direct connection to a microphone input on a mixing console, or
a full range amplification system. (Note: these contact microphones require 22 to 48 VDC phantom
power, with the exception of the passive DYN UNI.) The torsion-resistant, Kevlar-reinforced cable
is designed to withstand the rigors of daily use while delivering best possible performance results.
SCHERTLER DYN P48 Series microphones all feature built-in Class-A preamps and advanced filtering
technology that enables an optimum frequency response to be obtained from each individual
To make the most of your microphone’s capability and to ensure trouble-free operation, please
read this manual carefully before using the mic for the first time. We also advise keeping the
manual for future reference.
