Schertler Introduces the Basik Acoustic Pickup

Schertler has introduced the Basik acoustic pickup system as the ideal compliment to any acoustic instrument from guitars to mandolins, banjos to ukuleles.

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.

A deep dive into faux amps, futuristic setups, and how to use modern technology’s powers for good.

The jump between analog and digital gear has never been more manageable. It no longer takes a rack full of outboard gear with a six-figure price tag to help realize not only the tone you have in your head, but the expansive workflows that started to pop up in the early ’80s. We’re now about a decade into the modern era of digital modelers and profilers and it seems like the technology has finally come into its own. “This is really the first time in a while where you can have bar bands playing the exactsame gear as stadium acts,” says Cooper Carter, a Fractal Audio Systems production consultant who has done sound design and rig building for Neal Schon, James Valentine, John Petrucci, and others.
