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.

News from Frankfurt
Once again we enjoyed welcoming visitors from Germany and further afield to our booth at the Frankfurt Musikmesse. This year’s show featured our latest products, including the new Prime 5-, 9- and 13-channel mixers, alongside more established favourites.
Acoustic amplification systems on display ranged from our compact GIULIA Y to the flagship 7-channel ROY combo, along with TIM and TOM PA systems, the ARTHUR modular mixer, TEDDY stage monitor and high quality pickups such as the Magnetico AG6 and DYN series. In our booth demo room, visitors had an opportunity to test the sound quality of the different systems with various instruments and pickups.
With us on the booth was award-winning audio engineer and Schertler Ambassador Rob Griffin. Rob, a specialist in acoustic instrumentation, has been using an ARTHUR mixer for studio and live recording and was on hand to share his experiences with visitors.
Watch the video with Rob and Stephan talking about audio and some Schertler products.
The show also provided an opportunity for us meet potential new distribution partners and colleagues from the international press.
Thank you to everyone who came to see us in Frankfurt!
