About the New Xlson Microphone System

It is with greatest pleasure that we announce that the new Xlson Microphone System has now become a reality. Renowned Swedish jazz bassist, 
sound engineer and inventor Peter Axelsson has done it again.



After the success with the Chuck Israels signature microphone, which in many ways embodies the meaning of the 
YBOL (your bass, only louder) concept, Peter set out to build an even more versatile microphone. 



The idea was to build on all the strengths of its predecessor – while also addressing the constructive feedback received from some of its users. 

The outcome is spectacular. We believe this microphone belongs in every bass player’s toolbox, as well as at every live venue or 
recording studio that work with jazz (or other acoustic music where the upright bass is used). 



BUT it doesn’t end there. This microphone also sounds amazing on guitar, cello and a number of other string instruments – and very soon, the Violin edition will also be available.

We can’t wait to hear what you think!

Perks

  • Minimal sound bleed from other instruments
  • Less prone to feedback than most other condenser microphones
  • Deep, natural sound
  • Connects to any amp or PA system
  • Lightweight and easy to mount
  • As useful on the stage as in the studio
  • Can be used on Upright bass, Guitar and Cello

Sleek and Versatile

Testimonials

Peter Axelsson has developed a mic that rejects enough extraneous sound that it is practical to use in live situations and in recordings with little or no isolation baffling. The quality is excellent and I can amplify the bass even louder than I need it.

Colin Corner and I had the chance to listen to this mic in action, and it sounded great. Beautiful replication of the actual acoustic sound of the bass.

I've been hoping to find a way to replicate the sound and feel of a good studio recording on my live gigs. With the Xlson mic I've finally been able to do that. It captures not only the rich beauty of the full acoustic tone, but also the natural attack-decay envelope of the instrument. It sounds so good that 'the gear disappears' and it's just me and my bass (only louder).

The Chuck Israels Signature mic from Xlson Audio has the ability to place my Mirecourt Bass in the foreground while very effectively relegating the other instruments far into the background.
