Schertler’s new DYN-H-P48 is a fully balanced, active, dynamic contact microphone with Class A electronics that offers a practical, high-quality solution to the challenges involved in miking a harp. Specially designed to accurately reproduce the full range of the instrument with both clarity and balance, the microphone features state-of-the-art, in-house developed activefiltering technology that has enabled it to be precisely matched to the harp’s sound characteristics. This leads to more “immediate” results for the user, making it possible to achieve amazing sound with only minimal adjustments required.
The DYN-H-P48 has a new sleek, lightweight design, making it even less obtrusive to the player. The microphone is supplied with Schertler’s own customized cable that is both robust and torsion resistant, designed to withstand the rigours of daily use while delivering best possible performance results. A balanced XLR connector enables direct connection to a microphone input on a mixing console, as well as to a full range amplification system.
The DYN-H-P48 can be easily and safely applied to even the most valuable of instruments using special adhesive putty. Suitable for use on a range of harps from full size classical models to folk instruments, the microphone can either be positioned on the resonance case or on the head of the harp itself. Note: This microphone requires 48V phantom power.
Schertler’s flagship DYN Series contact microphones were first launched over 20 years ago. Two decades later, developments in microphone technology have enabled the series to be re-engineered to meet today’s exacting requirements. The new DYN P48 Series retains the best features from the original DYN microphones while incorporating state-of-the-art technology that has resulted ineven better sound quality,a more elegant lightweight design and more user-friendly operation.

How it's made - DYN (3)
Still life: with different DYN that will be subjected to a test of mechanical life. Our cable made in-house, reinforced with Kevlar offers about 50 times more cycles of long duration that the cable usually used for pickups.
"All pickup products and preamps are manufactured in Mendrisio, Switzerland. Most of the components are produced in our in-house workshop facilities where we have two CNC tooling machines, turning lathes and milling machines, a laser cutter, pneumatic presses, casting devices and obviously a well equipped electronic laboratory."
