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.

PRIME news from the Lab
As development of the new ARTHUR PRIME series continues, we look forward to previewing these new mixers at the NAMM and ISE shows in 2018. The series initially offers 3 non-expandable, competitively priced mixing solutions designed for a range of audio applications.
Available in fixed 5-, 9- and 13-channel configurations, PRIME series mixers are built using the same high-quality components found in the flagship ARTHUR (Format 48) modular mixer. Each model is equipped with high-quality preamps, two aux sends, a built-in digital reverb and other essential features for great sound quality and straightforward production.
Additionally designed with ease of use and quick setup in mind, PRIME mixers are perfect for smaller-scale performances, home studios, conference facilities and installations where space is at a premium, or where fewer input channels and aux sends are required.
