Schertler’s ARTHUR Format 48 mixer

Press Information – for immediate release

Schertler’s ARTHUR mixer – now ready for you to build!
Swiss manufacturer announces release of new self-configurable, high quality, modular mixer.

Schertler Group proudly announces the release of ARTHUR (Format48) – a new, high quality modular mixer, designed for studio or live use, which can be configured and built by the user.

The mixer is created from a choice of different Class-A input and output modules - Mic Input, Mic Input Ultra Low Noise and Mic Input x4 units, Yellow instrument input unit, Stereo Input unit, L/R Master, Aux Master and external Power-In units. These can be combined in any order and quantity to form both compact and large-scale mixer configurations. The number of units that can be included depends the power supply used: For simpler combinations of 12 or 25 units, there is a choice of two compact power supplies. A further high-end power supply is also available: This can be used with any combination of units, from just a few to 70 or more. (Power-In units are also required for larger configurations.)

Modules can be added, removed or re-ordered at any time, making ARTHUR one of the most flexible mixers on the market. Further modules are planned for release over the coming months.

ARTHUR’s electronic design is remarkable for its complete absence of negative feedback (NFB) from input to output. All filters and summing amps are free from restricting back loops in the mixer’s straightforward high-speed design, resulting in an ultra fast response and natural attack. All circuits are built using discrete Class-A components and pure high-voltage DC-amps (without any capacitors in the signal path), offering 30dB headroom and low noise, as well as unparalleled stability, warmth and transparency.

Configuring and ordering an ARTHUR mixer can be done through the Schertler website (Mixer area).
Alongside the technical information and specs for all available modules and accessories, a Configurator enables the various units to be selected in their required quantities. The mixer’s “virtual build” can be previewed along the way as different components are added or removed. External components such as power supplies, side panels and accessories are not supplied as standard and must be ordered separately.

Once delivered, physical assembly of modules is a straightforward process involving a series of connecting rods and hexagonal screws. Users have total freedom to design their own personal channel sequence, as there are no mechanical or electrical restrictions, with the exception of ensuring that the appropriate power supplies have been purchased to support the number of units being used.

ARTHUR is available from the Schertler online store (Europe, USA and Canada only) and can also be purchased via Schertler showrooms and distributors worldwide.

About the Schertler Group
Three companies, Schertler SA, SR Technology and Velvet Strings are at the heart of this innovative collaboration.

Founded in the early 1980s by bassist Stephan Schertler, Schertler SA has established a worldwide reputation for achieving the highest levels of accuracy in the reproduction of acoustic stringed instrument sound. The company’s research and development has focused on producing high-quality contact microphones and acoustic amplification systems. Schertler’s original approach to harnessing acoustic vibrations has resulted in a number of fundamental innovations, some of which have gained international patents. Current contact microphone ranges include the STAT, BASiK, Magnetico AG6 and flagship DYN P48 Series.

Between 2003 and 2011, Schertler launched its Classic and Deluxe series of compact amplifiers, with a range of models offering high quality portable stringed instrument amplification. The addition of the LaFaro amplifier for bass in 2012 represents the culmination of years of research to successfully amplify the sound of this complex instrument. Meanwhile, Schertler’s JAM line of guitar amplifiers has provided a global solution for portable, affordable sound reinforcement, quickly establishing itself as a market leader.

In 2012, Schertler acquired Italian manufacturer SR TECHNOLOGY in its entirety (the company was previously a subsidiary), in order to expand business into other market sectors. SR is dedicated to the development and production of high quality compact loudspeaker systems. 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”. The goal for all SR products is to combine transparency and musicality in an affordable product range, for live performance, home listening and installation, which does not compromise on sound quality.

As early as 1991, Stephan Schertler began to build quality strings for double bass that presented an alternative to standard steel ones. Amid a growing demand for his metal covered synthetic textile fibre strings, the Velvet Strings brand was born. The current range includes string sets for ‘cello and double bass, with strings for violin, viola and guitar soon to be available.

Schertler Group contact microphones and preamps are manufactured in Mendrisio, Switzerland, using in-house produced components. Acoustics amps are built in the Schertler Group manufacturing facility at Potenza Picena, Italy, developed in collaboration with the Group’s R&D offices in Switzerland and Italy.

Schertler Group products have become a first choice for live performances, broadcast and recording sessions, and we are proud to list some of the world's major orchestras, ensembles and soloists as our ambassadors.
