Schertler David 3 Channel Acoustic Guitar Amplifier

Schertler  David 3 Channel Acoustic Guitar Amplifier Schertler  David 3 Channel Acoustic Guitar Amplifier

As new. Has been sitting around in a warehouse for a while and used as a display, but is in as brand new condition. Comes in a protective carry bag as shown.

Are these the best acoustic amps around? This one sounds supurb. The following is from the Schertler web site.

DAVID's inputs will accommodate a microphone, an instrument and a stereo device such as a computer, MP3 player or CD. The instrument input and the Jack input on the microphone channel both feature a Bootstrap technology that enables the input to automatically adapt to any impedance. Some of the new DAVID amplifier's new features include: three channels, a range of controls including gain, switchable resonance (notch) filter, adjustable DI Out in the master section, mute switch and overload LED for each channel. A new digital reverb replaces the spring one found in the original David models. DAVID is also equipped with a high voltage CLASS-A preamp that has no integrated circuits and No Negative Feedback (NFB).

Price: $1100, which includes the carry bag, which normally retails at around $170.

Quad 4 x 12 Speaker Cabinet.

Quad 4 x 12 speaker cabinet Quad 4 x 12 speaker cabinet

This is a second hand cabinet in which I have installed some of my stockpile of speakers. I have been playing around a bit with mixing speakers in a cabinet. This one contains 2 McKenzie 1275GP sepakers and 2 Guya GSG.300509 speakers.

The Mckenzie speakers are brand new, made in England. McKenzie were used in Marshal amps prior to them moving to Celestion. The Guya speakers have had some use, made in Japan, and used in Guyatone equipment. Both speakers I have found to be pretty reasonable. Together this cab, to me, sounds very nice. It's probably not as eficient as a cab with Celestions, but the sound is great.

This cab is made from high grade 11 ply timber. Very well constructed, and is on castors. All speakers are 8 ohm. The cabinet is wired up in 8 ohm.

Price: $400



Laney 2 x 10 Speaker Cabinet.

Laney 2 x 10 Speaker Cabinet Laney 2 x 10 Speaker Cabinet

This is a second hand Laney cabinet in which I have installed some of my stockpile of speakers. This one contains 2 x 10" Fender Blue Label speakers. They are 16 ohm speakers wired in parralel, so this is an 8 ohm cabinet. The speakers are an original 70's unit that has been unused till now. They have been sitting on a shelf in the warehouse that was, in the day, the Fender dealer in Autralia, to be used as spare parts. The codes on the side of the speakers are: 014527 16 ohms 40763. As well as 2857932. Both speakers have the same code, so they were made at the same time by the same manufacturer. The latter suggests its manufacturer is Rola, either here in Australia or in England, and was made in the 32nd week of 1979. Does not state how many watts. I imagine there may not be to many of these made by Rola versions around.

I am able to install any of the 10" speakers listed on the Speakers Page. This is a closed back cabinet. It sounds exceptional! If you like the bright clean Fender like sound, with that crystal clear and clean top end then this will not disappoint.

This cab is a standard Laney thing. Reasonably well made, from MDF I think.

Price: $300



2 x 10" Bass Guitar Speaker Box

Bass Guitar Speaker Box Laney Bass Speaker

This speaker cab I have built, using 18mm Birch ply. Extremely strongly made. All joints are cleated. Hand wired. Uses 2x 10' speakers as used by Laney in many of their high power bass amps, which are brand new. These speakers were used as replacements for the Laney B2 bass amps, which were capable of around 400 watts. Speakers are 8 ohm each. Cab is wired up as a 16 ohm cab, so it would suit the addition of another box as well, in case, as I have done with my amp, you use a 2 x 10" with a 15" speaker cab as well. I am able to wire it up in 4 ohm configuration if required.

The dimensions of this cab are 64 cm wide, 45 cm deep, and 47 cm high. Or if you stand it up it would be 64 cm high I guess.

I have built speaker boxes in the past, but never applied tolex to them. This, being my first, is a bit rough, but looks OK from the front. It does not have any feet or handles attached at this point. It is fitted with a speakon input socket. I can supply a very robust 1/4 inch jack to speakon jack speaker lead if required.

Price: $350



2 x 10" Bass Guitar Speaker Box

Bass Guitar Speaker Box Celestion BN10-200 Speaker

This speaker cab I have built, using 18mm Birch ply. Extremely strongly made. All joints are cleated. Hand wired. Uses 2x 10' 8 ohm Celestion BN10-200 speakers. Cab is wired up as a 16 ohm cab, so it would suit the addition of another box as well. I am able to wire it up in 4 ohm configuration if required. It is fitted with an XLR type input socket. I can supply a very robust 1/4 inch jack to XLR jack speaker lead if required.

The dimensions of this cab are 64 cm wide, 45 cm deep, and 47 cm high. Or if you stand it up it would be 64 cm high I guess.

This box has not been covered in anything as yet. And is just raw timber. It does not have any feet or handles at this stage. This has been my own speaker cab, which I have used with the 115 cab shown below. It has been used for about 20 low volume rehearsals at home.

Price: $500

115 Bass Guitar Speaker Box Celestion BN15-400

115 Bass Guitar Speaker Box



This is a Laney CX115 sub bass cabinet loaded with an 8 ohm Celestion BN15-400X bass guitar speaker. I have used this speaker for bass guitar, but just at home, for about 20 rehearsals, at low volume, in tandem with a 2 x 10 box, using a Laney 150 watt amp. It has done little work, and may not even be run in yet. I'm happy to sell the speaker separately, or load the box with one of the other 15" speakers I have for sale.

It sounds very smooth and natural. It is currently wired with a 1/4 inch input jack. I can wire in any input socket required.

This is a light cab, owing to the light Celestion neodymium driver. Great for rehearsals and moderate gigs, or combined with the 2 x 10 cab shown for higher power requirements and a bit more top end.

Price: $400



Laney CX15 PA Speaker

Laney CX15 PA Speaker Laney CX15 PA Speaker

This is an un-powered Laney PA speaker. One only. 15 inch and horn loaded. I have used this at home for about 20 low volume rehearsals. Sounds reasonable, with no problems.

This is a useful lightweight box. Will sit on a speaker stand, or sideways on the floor for foldback, or upright on the floor for front of house.

I have several 15" Celestion speakers, one of which I could install in this box, as an upgrade, for an additional cost. I have used these Laney boxes with Celestions and with the no-name brand that Laney have also used, and, although the no-name ones work reasonably well, the Celestions are better.

Price: $100.



Electro Harmonix Effects Pedals

I have 2 Electro Harmonix pedals left. These are ex demo items. They may have been used, but not much. Come in their original boxes.



Electro Harmonix Tube EQ

Electro Harmonix Tube EQ

This is as new. Comes with a power supply. E.H. seem to use a few different power supplies, that have differing connecting plugs. This one has an unusual 2 prong plug that is not at all standard, so if your running this pedal from a power source you will need this particular power supply. This is not an original EH power supply but it is exactly the same.

In the pedal world, I guess everyone has their favourite. This for me is up there. I tested it out using a very ordinary transistor amp and 10 inch speaker, and this pedal really did give me the feel of playing a tube amp. I imagine it would also work very nicely plugged straight into a P.A. though I haven't tried that yet.

Check the E.H. website here for a demo

Normally retails for $509. This price $250.



Electro Harmonix Bi-Filter

Electro Harmonix Bi-Filter Electro Harmonix Bi-Filter

Brand new, and comes with original EH power supply.

Dual analog filter processor. Multi mode filters and an all analog signal path. Two separate filter sections can be used in series or parallel with different tonal sweeps, which react individually or interactively. Phase control allows for further contouring. Individual outputs for each filter plus a mixed output. In addition an external CV in or expression pedal in for controlling the filters with external devices, footswitch pedal imput and two CV outputs enable oudio triggering from each filter. Check the E.H. website here for further info

This unit seems to have been discontinued by EH, so new ones like this are not that readily available.

Normally retails for $989. The power supply retails for $66. This price $700.



Schertler Instrument Pickups

Fishman GII Guitar Preamplifier

Fishman GII Guitar Preamplifier

Selling on behalf of a friend. Had almost no use. This unit clips onto your belt. This is ideal for any instrument that has an under saddle type transducer pickup that does not have an onboard preamp. I have seen many mandolins and guitars like this. It works as an impedance matching device, so does not neccesarily increase the volume, but gives much better bottom end and smooths out those shrill higher frequencies that result from an impedance mismatch.

Price $100.



Speaker Stands

Speaker Stands

Had these sitting around for a while. Have done very little work. Not exactly the same colour, but the same lightweight construction.

Price $60.



Speaker Cables

Normally retails for $56. This price $30.



Microphone Cables

Speaker Cables Speaker Cables

Microphone cables, 20 foot. 2 types. One has hinged XLR balanced connectors on both ends. The other has fixed (i.e. normal) XLR connectors.

This price $15 each.



Battery Box For Cort Guitars

Battery Box For Cort Guitars

This battery box is the one used in Cort guitars (and others to I guess) with active eq's that use a 9volt battery.

Price: $12 each.



Micro Switch ON/ON/ON

Micro Switch On/On/ON Micro Switch On/On/ON

This micro switch is used in a few different EH pedals, and can be used in guitar switch wiring that uses an On/On/On switch. PLEASE NOTE this is a type 2 on/on/on switch. I inadvertently ordered a few to many when needing some. The centre on connections are shown in the diagram. This sort of thing is hard to find. These I purchased from Small Bear Electronics in the U.S.

Yes I'm charging a bit more than they do, but I had to pay for shipping to Australia.

Price: $8 each.
