Schertler’s new DYN-P-P48 is a fully balanced, active, dynamic contact microphone with Class A electronics. Specially designed to reproduce the wide frequency range and complex sound qualities of the piano, the microphone features state-of-the-art, in-house developed activefiltering technology that has enabled it to be precisely matched to the sound characteristics of the instrument. This leads to more “immediate” results for the user, making it possible to achieve amazing sound with only minimal adjustments required.
The DYN-P-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 studio or stage mixer.
Suitable for use with both upright and grand pianos, the DYN-P-P48 can be easily and safely applied to even the most valuable of instruments using special adhesive putty, and positioned accordingly to capture the instrument’s best tonal qualities. 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.

"Amazing sound! Yeah. That’s something else man! Never heard a good sond like this in my music room!"
How it's made - DYN (2)
DYNs after the first test. The coil/magnet mechanism is hidden under the blue shock damper. The decoupled magnet’s weight is only 0.6 grams and therefore its response is very fast.
"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."
