This year’s Frankfurt Musikmesse / Prolight & Sound provides a launchpad for the Schertler Group’s latest productsas ROY and TEDDY are added to the company’s regularly expanding portfolio.
ROY is Schertler’s new top-of-the-range combo amplifier for acoustic instruments. The 400W, 7-channel amp provides a powerful yet lightweight system that is perfect for both stage and studio. ROY includes 4 input channels with various mic / instrument combinations, s (as on a professional mixer), 3-band EQ and phantom power; an additional unbalanced instrument input channel; a stereo input channel for playback devices and an FX return / additional input channel. ROY has the same hi-end Class A preamp found in other Schertler amplifiers. Its Master section features both a digital reverb and a new digital Multi-Effect (on a separate bus), as well as DI/Line/Aux Outs and a headphone preamp.
Specially developed for theatre and concert sound applications, TEDDY is Schertler’s new 200W compact stage monitor. Its “low profile” design is ideal for edge-of-stage use without impeding audience views. TEDDY features a coaxial speaker for constant sound directivity, with a specific inclination angle that makes it ideal for both standing and seated performances. For more extensive stage coverage, several units can be chained together using XLR input and output connectors - all connected to the same signal path.An intuitive control panel includes a single Sensitivity knob for adjusting the signal level from -9dB to +6dB (enabling finer regulation of the signal sent from the mixer), an EQ switch with two pre-shaped curves and a Ground Lift switch.
Following its 2016 release, Schertler’s ARTHUR modular mixer returns to Frankfurt with several new modules. ARTHUR offers both audio professionals and performing musicians a mixer that they can configure and build to suit specific recording and live sound requirements. Additions to the current range of input and output modules include the Multiple in (4 line channels) unit, a new Sub Group Class A summing amp and a Spring (reverb) Unit. The latter is designed for use both as an ARTHUR module and as a stand-alone reverb.
Other more established products making a return to Frankfurt include Schertler’s TIM and TOM compact portable PA systems and the UNICO 250W acoustic amplifier, whose 10” woofer and optimized bass reflex construction makes it ideal for a range of acoustic instruments and as a crossover amp for electric guitars.
