Schertler announces the release of ROY, its new flagship combo amp and TEDDY, a compact professional stage monitor.
These latest additions to the Swiss manufacturer’s portfolio demonstrate a growing commitment to developing solutions that meet the demands of musicians and engineers in the professional live performance and recording environments.
ROY is the new “King” of Schertler’s next generation acoustic amplifier series. Equipped with a 1-inch tweeter and two 8-inch woofers, the 400-watt, 7-channel combo amp forms a powerful yet portable stand-alone stage or studio amplification system for soloists and/or small groups.
ROY includes 4 input channels with various microphone / instrument combinations, inserts (as on a professional mixer), 3-band EQ and phantom power; an additional unbalanced instrument input channel; a stereo input channel for playback devices and an FX return / additional input channel.
The amplifier’s master section features both a digital reverb and a new digital multi-effect (on a separate bus), as well as DI/line/aux outputs and a headphone preamp for monitoring.
Like all Schertler amplifiers, ROY is equipped with a Class-A preamp and has no integrated circuits and no negative feedback (NFB) to guarantee best possible sound reproduction. The amp is available with a wood or anthracite finish.
TEDDY, Schertler’s new 200-watt compact stage monitor, has been specifically developed for professional theatre and concert sound applications.
Equipped with an 8-inch coaxial woofer and 1-inch compression driver for constant sound directivity, the wedge-shaped monitor has a “low profile” design that makes it ideal for edge-of-stage use without impeding audience views.
The monitor’s specific inclination angle enables it to be effectively used for both standing and seated performances. For more extensive stage coverage, several units can be chained together using balanced (XLR) input and output connections – all linked to the same signal path.
TEDDY’s intuitive control panel includes a single sensitivity knob for adjusting the signal level from -9dB to +6dB (enabling finer regulation of the signal sent from the mixer), an EQ switch with two pre-shaped curves and a ground lift switch. The monitor is available with a wood or anthracite finish.
ROY and TEDDY are available from the Schertler online store, as well as via Schertler showrooms worldwide.
