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.

Creating a "buzz" with Prime

There’s quite a buzz developing around our Prime compact mixers thanks to some recent magazine reviews and independent videos. The latest of these combines a real-time audio test of the Prime 5 mixer’s features with a down-to-earth explanation of Schertler’s No Negative Feedback concept (which is key to our entire mixer range). Not only did we enjoy it, but it also reached another 5400 viewers in its first 2 days! Check it out here (

About the Prime Series:
Our 5-, 9- and 13-channel mixers are perfect for recordings, performances and other events where high-quality audio is vital, but relatively few channels are needed. Based on the same technology found in the flagship ARTHUR modular mixer, the Prime series offers all the essential elements you would expect from a professional mixer together with compact dimensions that make transportation and set-up a breeze.
