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.

Integrated Systems Success for Schertler
A successful ISE show confirmed that Schertler is now becoming part of the system integration world. As first time exhibitors at this established international exhibition in Amsterdam, the team demonstrated a range of professional audio products (including the Arthur modular and new Prime mixers) to visitors from all over the world.
Aside from the new business opportunities offered by potential customers from the House of Worship, AV and System Integration sectors, Stephan Schertler made some further discoveries: “Many people visiting our booth from the audio rental service sector seemed to be focussing more on analogue audio quality than on digital systems. This, together with the interest from other sectors, made us very aware the Schertler is definitely a part of the integrated systems world and definitely not just an MI company!”
The show also provided an opportunity to discuss new distribution agreements in several new territories.
