About Prime 13 

Prime 13 is the largest model in our new fixed-format mixer series. Based on the same technology used in the flagship Arthur mixer, it features the same high-quality preamps on the input channels, the same hi-voltage (48V) power supply for superior headroom and the same No Negative Feedback (NFB) structure for a fast response and natural attack. The mixer’s 7 mic input channels and 3 stereo line input channels have a range of standard features as well as 2 x Aux Sends (pre- and postfade) per channel and a switchable Insert/DirectOut option on the mic channels.The Master section includes both Main and Aux Outs, a stereo digital reverb with independent controls for volume and decay, plus a headphone section with volume control.

Prime 13 is ideal for smaller theatres and performance venues, houses of worship, rehearsal rooms or recording/project studios where excellent sound quality is required, but space is more limited. 


Gruhn Guitars


Gruhn Guitars joins Schertler’s growing US dealer network 

Nashville-based Gruhn Guitars recently joined Schertler’s steadily growing network of dealers in the USA. Known for its considerable inventory of vintage instruments, the store also features new instruments from guitar manufacturers and independent luthiers, and now stocks a range of Schertler amplifiers.

“We are very excited to announce the addition of Gruhn Guitars of Nashville to our growing list of dealers”, says National Sales Manager Dave Schmidt. “George Gruhn and Gruhn Guitars are legendary in the guitar world, and almost every famous player in the past 50 years has been there and likely purchased an instrument or two. George Gruhn is the world’s leading expert on vintage American guitars and related instruments, and is one of the most trusted names in the business. After being backstage at the Grand Ole Opry and talking to many of the players who are currently using Schertler amplifiers and pickups, George knew this was the right product for his store and his customers. Gruhn Guitars is a true gem for representing the Schertler brand and product line”. 



Mandolin Academy


Sounds of Schertler at the International Mandolin and Guitar Academy 

The XIII International Mandolin and Guitar Academy recently took place in Genoa, Italy, attracting participants from all over the world. Among the opening activities of the week-long event was a successful demo/workshop given by guitarist and Schertler Ambassador Dario Fornara. This gave students an opportunity to hear and explore the qualities of various Schertler pickups and amplification systems.

Carlo Aonzo, international mandolinist, Academy Founder/Director and Schertler Ambassador commented: "I am happy to have given the opportunity to our students to test the contact microphones and the Schertler loudspeakers that capture and reproduce the sound of our instruments in an optimal way, maintaining their quality and naturalness of origin."

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.
