Pomona, CA (May 13, 2013) -- Schertler has introduced the Basik acoustic pickup system as the ideal compliment to any acoustic instrument from guitars to mandolins, banjos to ukuleles. This new unobtrusive, compact, universal surface mount system allows players to easily apply and remove from to a variety of different acoustic instruments, for a high precision response resulting in an accurate natural sound and acoustic tone. The Schertler Basik will be featured at the Summer NAMM Show in Nashville at the Eastman Guitars booth #1512.

With the Schertler Basik ($199.99), the easily applied contact microphone can be plugged directly into any amplifier through the phantom power adapter box supplied with a 1.5V AA battery. Simply affix the microphone to the recommended placement area for the desired instrument, plug in and play. Its user-friendliness and cost-effectiveness make the Basik the ideal acoustic pick-up for beginners, students or semi-professional musicians.

Since its foundation in the early 1980s, Schertler has embarked on a passionate endeavor of research aiming to achieve the highest levels of fidelity in the reproduction of acoustic stringed instruments. Today, the Schertler brand is a standard for live performance, broadcast and recording applications and proudly lists some of the world’s leading orchestras, ensembles and solo artists as ambassadors.
