Schertler’s new DYN-UNI-P48 is a fully balanced, active, dynamic contact microphone with Class A electronics. Specially designed for professional applications, it replaces Schertler’s previously available A-DYN model as the new flagship universal contact microphone. The DYN-UNI-P48 features state-of-the-art, in-house developed activefiltering technology and a modified frequency response to guarantee a linear result.
Sporting a new, sleek lightweight design, the DYN-UNI-P48 is supplied with Schertler’s own customized cable that has an extended length. The cable 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-UNI-P48 can be easily and safely applied to even the most valuable of instruments using special adhesive putty. It can also be quickly transferred between instruments during performances or recording sessions. 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.

Hang Massive - hang
"We have been using the A-Dyn series on our Hang for some time now. Previous to that we often experienced a lot of problems to achieve a good volume on stage. The Hang produces sound from all over and therefore was always difficult to capture it all without experiencing either feedback or an unbalanced sound. With the A-Dyn mics we capture a good overall sound, even with a loud stage environment or when situated very close to the main PA. It has been a game changer for us!"
Martijn Schok - piano
"Especially when using an acoustic piano solo on stage, a good sound quality is absolutely essential for a good concert. I’m thrilled that this transducer gives me the possibility to let my audience enjoy the natural and warm characteristic sound of an acoustic piano. The transducer creates the most realistic reproduction of the sound of my instrument"
James Winstanley - Hang + mandolin
"Because of the nature of the Hangs multiple frequencies and James’s ever changing performances and settings, getting a consistant sound and not being affected by sound bleed has been a major issue.The Schertler DYN UNI P48 has solved this problem - thankyou.James also uses a DYN M electro dynamic mandolin pickup and Pre A III for his 1913 Gibson Mandolin."
How it's made - Dyn (4)
Finished DYN-P48s ready to be tested and packaged.
"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."
