Since its foundation in the early 1980s, Schertler SA has launched a programme of passionate research that aims to achieve the highest levels of accuracy in the reproduction of acoustic stringed instrument sound. Led by bassist and founder Stephan Schertler, the research and development company initially began to focus on producing high quality tools and innovative technology to replace the technology and imperfections of piezo pickups. Over the years, Schertler’s original approach to harnessing acoustic vibrations has resulted in a number of fundamental innovations, some of which have gained international patents, such as the STAT Series of contact microphones.
In 2003, Schertler launched an original series of compact amplifiers – the Classic Series. Since then, the 3-channel UNICO and 2-channel DAVID have provided musicians with high quality portable solutions for stringed instrument amplification. Suited to virtually any live performance situation, these amplifiers have received unanimous feedback from users around the world, helping to build the reputation that Schertler has gained in the field of acoustic amplification.
The latest note from THE DIARY…
ISE – Integrated Systems Europe in Amsterdam
Due to the current global emergency, all upcoming trade shows have unfortunately been cancelled - including Superbooth in Berlin, which would have taken place at the end of this month.
Back in February however, Integrated Systems Europe - the world's largest exhibition for AV and system integration - took place at the Amsterdam RAI. In spite of the adverse weather and problems related to the international health issues that were already starting to affect Europe, Schertler joined many big names in the ProAudio field to exhibit at the show.
Unlike other trade shows, the only Schertler products presented this year in the Dutch capital were the analog mixers. Undisputed kings of the booth were the Arthur F48 and X modular mixers, accompanied by the compact Arthur Prime models and a first prototype mixer specifically designed for conferences. Needless to say, sound engineers, musicians and distributors from countless parts of the globe expressed a strong interest in the various consoles.
Company president - and mixer designer - Stephan Schertler commented: "It has been an interesting trade show, we made contact with several people who have a similar vision to ours, and there have been concrete steps ahead for the near future".
Schertler is therefore very satisfied with the results achieved in Amsterdam and will now make the most out of this “time out” in order to prepare as well as possible for the next shows.
