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…
Schertler - 100% Swiss Made
Changes are afoot as Schertler begins a substantial reorganisation that will see all of its products being produced at the company’s Mendrisio headquarters by the end of 2019. Until now, Schertler acoustic amplifiers and small PA systems have been produced in Italy. However, once the reorganisation is complete, the entire Schertler product range will be 100% Swiss Made.
Stephan Schertler, President and CEO says:
“As most of our customers know, Schertler’s acoustic amp line and small PA systems have been produced at our own facility in Italy - SR Technology. Over the last month however, production has been moving over to our headquarters in Mendrisio, Switzerland.
The reasoning behind this considered decision is that it give us greater control over production and more immediate access for making improvements and for developing new products. In future all SCHERTLER products will be designed and manufactured in Switzerland in accordance with the most stringent Swiss industrial standards. An important step that has been taken in order to satisfy our customers even more.”
