For the experimental/soldering iron equiped/low budget artist:
http://www.instructables.com/id/EJ135J8TZAEP286NK8/
Careful placement & a good selfmade preamp or a Baggs Paraacoustic DI behind this
and everything is twang.
Better sounding and not as expensive as Schertler is this AKG mic (condensor, needs
special phantom power):

This was a misunderstanding.
Better sounding than Ravi nowadays, anyway:-) Yoke aside,
I meant: better sound than the self built - not better sound than
the Schertler ..... low budget was the headline:-)

Also I don't know about that "sophisticated computerized" vibration cancelling - most likely some FIR filtering
or some phase network vodoo?
Cheaper is my argument:-) There is not much sense in using an expensive thingy if you need to add a mic, anyway?
Back to practise (and I hope one day I can hear a Sitar without all these wood vibrations)

... I wondered that too. My very limited understanding of transducers are that they are two conductors separated by a layer of piezo crystals (a type of ceramic). When sound waves push and pull on the conductors and electrical signal is created that can be output as an audio signal. It's a very low tech affair that doesn't contain any integrated circuits to do any further signal processing... if there are I couldn't find reference to them on Shertler's website (http://www.schertlerusa.com/dyn.htm). One thing they could do though is use signal analysis in the design phase to very precisely calibrate the transducers.. the right dimensions, materials etc. to achieve a high quality mic-like output... that make sense. Maybe some one out there can clarify this for us? Anyway, I would love to hear an audio recording of the Schertler on a sitar ... you usually get what you pay for in high end audio, so I'm extremely curious.
