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…
Springtime is showtime!
With more trade shows than ever to attend, May proved an exceptionally busy month. For the first time, Schertler Group exhibited at Superbooth in Berlin, Music Inside Rimini and the 144th AES in Milan.
At Superbooth and AES, the focus was firmly on the Arthur modular mixer and new Arthur Prime 5-, 9- and 13-channel compact mixers. Exhibition teams had plenty of interest from a constant stream of stand visitors, potential dealers/distributors and press. Music In Rimini provided a showcase for Schertler’s wider portfolio, with an additional opportunity for visitors to explore acoustic amplifiers, compact PA systems, pickups and guitar tuners.
“Giving people a chance to check out our products for themselves (especially our new mixers) is proving really valuable as our portfolio gets larger” says Schertler Marketing Manager Drago Dujak. ”We had very positive feedback from all the shows. It’s great to chat with musicians, engineers and business colleagues, some of whom have been using our products for years. Our product development is driven by listening to what customers want, so these shows provide a great opportunity to find out exactly what people are looking for and how we can help them produce the best possible sound.”
