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.

Systems Workshop to distribute ARTHUR in the UK
Schertler Group has appointed Systems Workshop as UK distributor for ARTHUR. The Oswestry-based company will act as a showroom and distribution centre for the modular mixer, which has attracted a steadily growing list of international users in the 12 months since its release.
ARTHUR offers musicians and engineers a customizable mixing solution for live and studio applications. The mixer’s input and output modules can be assembled in virtually any combination or order, from a basic compact setup with a vocal or instrument preamp and L/R Master, to a DJ / keyboard mixer with stereo inputs for keys and playback devices, right through to a large multi-channel studio configuration with multiple mic and instrument inputs and aux sends. The mixer can be directly connected to a PA system and can be expanded over time as required, or as new modules become available.
“We are delighted to have Systems Workshop on board for ARTHUR,” says Drago Dujak, Schertler’s Marketing & Sales Manager. “ARTHUR is a different product from anything else currently on the market. This is why customers need to experience first-hand how simple it is to configure and assemble the modules and how different configurations can be built for various studio and live applications. Phil Beaumont and his team will also be out and about with ARTHUR over the coming months, so it will be a great opportunity to see our modular mixer in action all over the UK.”
Phil Beaumont, Managing Director of Systems Workshop Distribution adds: “The Schertler ARTHUR mixer is an innovative product - its modular design enables it to meet the needs of a diverse range of applications. We are delighted to be able to add this high quality, Swiss manufactured product to our portfolio.”
