Schertler Lafaro Double Bass Amplifier

Double bass amplification proved the original inspiration for Schertler’s range of high quality pickups. Now, LAFARO represents another milestone in Stephan Schertler’s quest to provide the international bass playing community with an amplification system that reproduces the true sound of this complex instrument.

Dedicated to jazz bass legend Scott LaFaro, this new amplifier combines many of the high quality features found in Schertler’s Deluxe series with some unique functionality to produce an extraordinarily natural and musical reproduction of the instrument. Any microphone source can be connected to LAFARO’s 2-channel CLASS-A preamp.

The amplifier is equipped with 3 DI outputs, one for each channel and one for the Master section. A traditional, transformer-driven 280-Watt power amp moves a specially developed 8” woofer with record-breaking linear extension to provide strong, clear low frequencies and a natural sounding mid range and a tweeter that is designed to smooth out uncompressed harmonics – important for any stringed instrument, not least the double bass. An effect loop and other high-end features guarantee unparalleled professional versatility and quality.

In addition to its primary application as an acoustic bass amplifier, LAFARO sounds great as a rehearsal or recording amplifier for electric bass. It can also be successfully used with ‘cello when strong amplification is needed. LAFARO is not cheap, nor is it lightweight. But there’s no compromise on sound quality and we believe that it offers the most musical and natural amplification possible, particularly when used with Schertler STAT-B or DYN-B pickups.

Main Features:
Class-A Preamplifier with no integrated circuits
Power amp with new hi-end speakers.

Intelligent inputs that automartcally recognize the impedance of the pickup or microphone. No need for DI box or buffer. Plug in anything, from a hi-impedance passive single-coil magnetic pickup to a low impedance vocal microphone.
Each channel has 4 band EQ + a special dedicated filter: warm, resonance and brilliance.
Peak LED indicators on each channel
LED indicators on phantom power
