“I wanted to be able to play a Stradivarius Violin using my fx pedals setup that I am using for Olga Show . Schertler gives me that freedom because of the simple and fast assembly through the bridge and no contact of the pickup to the instrument itself. This is very important for valuable instruments. There is no risk to damage the instrument, because of using a pickup, like with other pickups. Thanks to STAT V I achieve the best sound quality that one can imagine and an absolute freedom of performance.“
