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.

About Prime 13 

Prime 13 is the largest model in our new fixed-format mixer series. Based on the same technology used in the flagship Arthur mixer, it features the same high-quality preamps on the input channels, the same hi-voltage (48V) power supply for superior headroom and the same No Negative Feedback (NFB) structure for a fast response and natural attack. The mixer’s 7 mic input channels and 3 stereo line input channels have a range of standard features as well as 2 x Aux Sends (pre- and postfade) per channel and a switchable Insert/DirectOut option on the mic channels.The Master section includes both Main and Aux Outs, a stereo digital reverb with independent controls for volume and decay, plus a headphone section with volume control.

Prime 13 is ideal for smaller theatres and performance venues, houses of worship, rehearsal rooms or recording/project studios where excellent sound quality is required, but space is more limited.
