Stat-V and viola perform for Jay Terrien
Schertler Ambassador Jay Terrien never leaves home without his Stat-V pickup. The professional viola player / musical director / arranger has worked with some of the world’s leading artists including Stevie Wonder, Moby, Rihanna, Megadeth, Milck (Connie Lim), Esperanza Spalding, Rancid, Josh Groben, Alien Ant Farm, Andy Grammer, Pat Mastelotto (King Crimson, XTC, The Sugarcubes) to name just a few.
Amid a busy schedule of live TV and concert performances, Jay explains why his instrument and pickup have now become inseparable.
“I use my Schertler Stat-V for my viola whenever I perform on a major late-night TV show or a big concert with a superstar artist. The live TV audio engineers at the Tonight Show with Jay Leno LOVED the sound of the pickup when I performed my string arrangements on the show with artists MOBY and ANDY GRAMMER. The strong tone of the pizzicato part during the ending of the song is crystal clearly heard in this video performance with Andy Grammer: https://vimeo.com/40889772 I never leave home without my Schertler Stat-V, it stays on my viola bridge at all times."
