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. 2011 saw the launch of the Deluxe Series – soon regarded as the best available acoustic amplification systems. Even more powerful, with re-engineered CLASS-A preamplifiers and amplifiers, as well as new control functions, the Deluxe series reflects Stephan Schertler’s lifetime dedication to making the best possible systems available to musicians. This was further demonstrated in 2012 with the addition of LaFaro, the new amplifier for bass. Dedicated to one of the best bassists in jazz history, Lafaro is the culmination of years of research in the challenge to successfully amplify the sound of this complex instrument. The range of guitar amplifiers has been extended with the JAM line.
In 2012, Schertler acquired the company SR TECHNOLOGY in its entirety – it was previously a subsidiary - in order to expand business into other market sectors and consolidate its position as a leading player in the field of acoustic amplification.
Synergies within the Schertler Group, supported by significant investment and a solid background acquired over the years, has enabled SR Technology to face the stimulating challenges of the future and continue to provide a portfolio of cutting edge products for the continually growing and changing needs of customers worldwide.
Italian musicality combined with Swiss precision has formed the basis of the famous "SR Sound”; deep, decisive bass complemented by a soft, crisp mid range and perfectly integrated clear “highs”.
