Fondé au début des années 1980 par le bassiste Stephan Schertler, la marque Schertler a acquis une réputation mondiale pour atteindre les plus hauts niveaux de précision dans la reproduction du son d'instruments acoustiques. L'approche innovante de l'entreprise pour exploiter les vibrations acoustiques a donné lieu à un portefeuille en constante évolution des systèmes d'amplification acoustique, préamplificateurs professionnels et microphones à contact comme la série originale DYN des années 1990, plus récemment re-conçu pour former le la série phare de DYN-P48, qui est devenu un l'ultime solution pour les ingénieurs d'enregistrement professionnel. Avec la création du group Schertler - Schertler SA, SR Technology and Velvet Strings - en 2015, la recherche et le développement sont de plus en plus axés sur les produits audio professionnels (parallèlement à un portefeuille actif des produits d'instruments de musique). Les dernières sorties incluent le préamplificateur YELLOW MIC 500, le système sono compact TOM et le nouveau mixer modulaire ARTHUR. Le groupe Basée à Mendrisio, en Suisse, possède actuellement des installations de Recherche et Développement en Suisse et en Italie.

Riccardo Sinigallia finds his comfort zone with Schertler amps

For years, the Italian singer-songwriter, record producer and soundtrack composer Riccardo Sinigallia struggled to achieve the right guitar sound when taking his work from the music room to the stage - until he discovered Schertler. He takes up the story:

“Although it’s a nightmare that I have now left behind, I still remember the frustration of trying to transport pieces written and played on acoustic guitar (with no amplification) to the stage or rehearsal room. The live performance sound of acoustic guitars amplified in different ways was never satisfactory. In fact, it invariably caused emotional limitations, as well as technical and expressive ones.

Feedback from the basic sound made it necessary to use sound hole caps to close the guitar body. There were also uncontrolled high frequencies and scratchy effects. In short, a disaster that affected both my emotional state and performance.

As soon as I tried my first Schertler - the original DAVID amplifier - together with a guitar suited to my style of personal accompaniment, the discomfort immediately disappeared. The response was always natural and clear, every type of equalization was effective and decisive. Absolute quality that could also adapt to sound experiments with pedals and so on.

From that moment onwards, I decided to follow the evolution of Schertler products. Now I only play with my UNICO (new generation), but the degree of comfort translates to any of the amplifier models, regardless of their respective differences. Indeed, I no longer feel embarrassed when working with other musicians and especially with sound engineers. I just turn on and play, knowing that any problem will not be a result of my set-up. At the end of a concert, it is really satisfying to meet guitarists (much better than me) who ask about my set-up. And it happens, often!... I recommend this to everyone …"
