"Schertler instrument microphones have revolutionized our live set!
The microphones are durable, reliable, and sound fantastic. We’re able to boost and mix the volumes between strings and harp with ease.
Whether we are playing a small venue or a big festival, Schertler microphones provide top quality sound during our performances."
