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.

Successful NAMM Show for Schertler and ARTHUR Prime
The 2018 NAMM Show in Anaheim (USA) proved a resounding success for Schertler. With new products on display, enhanced by performances from live musicians, large numbers of visitors were drawn to the Schertler booth.
As well as providing a platform for US trade show debutants ROY and TEDDY (Schertler’s flagship 7-channel combo amp and new professional stage monitor), NAMM also marked the official launch of Schertler’s new Arthur Prime mixer series. These compact, fixed configuration mixers garnered much interest from musicians, audio professionals and press. Schertler Marketing Manager Drago Dujak sums up:
“We were very pleased with the amount of booth traffic and the interest shown in our latest products over the four days. Both our Arthur modular mixer and the new Prime proved popular with visitors from a range of market sectors, including house of worship and live concert sound. We had a lot of distribution interest, especially from the Far East. We also talked to a number of US retailers regarding potential dealerships. There was a lot of press interest too and we held some very successful meetings. A special ‘thank you’ to all the musicians who performed using our products. It was a great show all round.”
