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.

Nashville-based Gruhn Guitars recently joined Schertler’s steadily growing network of dealers in the USA. Known for its considerable inventory of vintage instruments, the store also features new instruments from guitar manufacturers and independent luthiers, and now stocks a range of Schertler amplifiers.
“We are very excited to announce the addition of Gruhn Guitars of Nashville to our growing list of dealers”, says National Sales Manager Dave Schmidt. “George Gruhn and Gruhn Guitars are legendary in the guitar world, and almost every famous player in the past 50 years has been there and likely purchased an instrument or two. George Gruhn is the world’s leading expert on vintage American guitars and related instruments, and is one of the most trusted names in the business.
