Schertler Double Bass Pickup
plus Yellow Single preamp 

The Schertler STAT-B is Schertler's classic electrostatic bridge-mounted transducer. This SET includes Schertler's Yellow Single preamplifer.

Ideal in applications where high volume levels must not present a handicap, the STAT-B provides high feedback resistance while reflecting the natural sound of the Double Bass with a clear, well defined and "round" string tone.

Schertler's patented STAT line of bridge pickups was designed by Stephan Schertler, a Bassist himself, for Bassists. Then too, just ask Charlie Haden, Rufus Reid and Larry Granadier who rely on Schertler pickups for their "live" sound.

- Charlie Haden

    Schertler Stat-B Pro Set

    Posted by Doug Kuhn on 22nd Sep 2018

    This is the best double bass pickup I've found and I've tried many over the past 30 years. It gives a very natural sound, almost like using a mic but without the usual feedback problems. It has none of that piezo nasal sound either. It takes a bit of work and fiddling to attach the capsule to the bridge of the bass but it is worth the effort. The preamp has some great features, especially the Resonance control that cuts out any low-end boom. A very well-designed and built package.
