Schertler Violin and Viola Pickup
plus Yellow Blender preamp
The Schertler STAT-V is Schertler's classic electrostatic bridge-mounted transducer. This SET includes Schertler's Yellow Blender preamplifer.
Ideal in applications where high volume levels must not present a handicap, the STAT-V provides high feedback resistance while reflecting the natural sound of the violin and viola 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 violin family instruments Then too, just ask Charlie Haden, Rufus Reid and Larry Granadier who rely on Schertler pickups for their "live" sound.
"THIS TRANSDUCER REPRODUCES THE SOUND OF MY BASS, STRINGS and FINGERS, NOTHING ELSE."
- Charlie Haden
