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.

ACE-K Corp introduces GUILIA Y at Sound Messe, Osaka
For their first trade show with Schertler products, our recently appointed Japanese distributor, ACE-K Corp., presented the GIULIA Y amplifier at Sound Messe in Osaka. The popular guitar show, which took place during May in the city’s ATC Hall, attracted a wide range of acoustic and electric guitar brands, accessories and amplification products.
The ACE-K booth featured Schertler’s ultra-compact 2-channel GIULIA Y amplifier. Ideal for small venues, home studios and practice, the 50 W amp offers the same high quality sound, appearance and robust construction as its larger siblings David, Unico and Roy.
Since coming on board in May, ACE-K have distributed Schertler amps to their retailers and have also supplied a GUILIA Y to well-known Japanese guitarist Tadayoshi Furukawa for use as a monitor.
