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.

For Martin guitar owners and enthusiasts, the recent Martin Experience hosted by The Fellowship of Acoustics (TFOA) in the Netherlands provided a perfect opportunity to hear some of these renowned acoustic instruments at their best.

Brunch, clinics and live music preceded an interview with the current C.F. Martin and Co. CEO, Chris Martin IV (great-great-great grandson of the founder).

To ensure best possible sound production, a TOM 1000W portable PA system was used on stage together with Schertler’s flagship 7-channel ROY combo amplifier.

“Everybody was stunned, the Schertler system sounded phenomenal” says Cohen Bults, TFOA Sales Manager.
