Plays UNICO and DAVID
" As a guitarist, composer, performer, recording sound engineer and hi-end lover, I am intensely interested in acoustic instruments amps in a high-end audio level.
My passion is to achieve most intensive live performance results with accurate acoustic sound.
In recent years, I owned and performed many acoustic guitar amps of high quality brands. They were mostly good sounded but had some weaker sides for me such headroom, sound, dynamic, clarity, pureness, detail, airness, appropriate frequency range, design, easy of use etc.
Over the years, after chasing most accurate acoustic guitar amp for my needs, I finally ended up with Schertler, owning and performing both Unico and David models.
Besides, as guitarist, chasing my acoustic sound started firstly for the most accurate soundig acoustic/classical guitar which should has the significant sensitivity to timbre my own voices on guitar, with it’s beauty of existence, wood, build, touch, feel, dynamic range, sound, moreover the sense behind. So I ended up with a beauty of Jose Ramirez Guitar.
Next mission was to combine all to achieve the most efficient result!
Schertler amps has represented to me all my expectation from an acoustic amp with its headroom, sound, dynamic, clarity, pureness, detail, airness, appropriate frequency range, without any loss of guitars tonal characteristics on an amped sound. The sense behind was probably Stephen Schertler’s musicians side to produce in such quality acoustic amps."
