Frankfurt provides a launchpad for the Schertler Group’s latest products, as 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 four input channels with various mic / instrument combinations; inserts (as on a professional mixer); three-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.
Following its 2016 release, Schertler’s Arthur modular mixer returns to Frankfurt with several new modules.
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 optimised bass reflex construction makes it ideal for a range of acoustic instruments and as a crossover amp for electric guitars.
