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…
And the Winner is …
The recent Ultimateguitar.com-Schertler giveaway attracted thousands of participants. Up for grabs was a special package comprising the GIULIA Y (link) amplifier and M-AG6 (link) acoustic guitar pickup. Great news for the lucky winner, Evan Bradley from Pennsylvania, who is pictured here with his prize.
The ultra-compact, 50W, 2-channel GIULIA Y amplifier is perfect for small venues, home studios and practice. The amp features XLR/Jack inputs accommodating a range of pickups, phantom power, intuitive controls, digital reverb, an insert for external processor/pedal and separate DI/Line outputs.
The M-AG6 uniquely combines Schertler electronics and active multiple coil technology. The pickup fits inside the guitar’s sound hole: A volume control and input for a second pickup enable sound from both pickups to be blended as required.
High-quality sound from start to finish!
