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…
Superbooth success for Arthur
Amid an array of synths and other modular gear, the recent Superbooth in Berlin (9-11 May) gave DJs and producers an opportunity to see and try Schertler’s Arthur Format 48 and Prime mixers, along with the latest X series mixer modules.
The three-day programme of lectures, concerts, workshops and presentations attracts visitors from all over the world. This year’s show has been rated as one of the biggest yet, featuring an impressive number of new products.
Schertler Marketing Manager Drago Dujak comments: “This Berlin show reflects the good health of the modular synth market. For us, it’s also an experience involving musicians and audio professionals from a sector that is very different from our more traditional musical instrument market. It was great to meet so many visitors who were interested in our modular mixer ranges and we are very happy to have achieved several sales during the show.”
See you next year!
