This preowned Schertler LAFARO Upright Bass Amplifier is in mint condition, and was something we sold new as a special order for the original owner. Double bass amplification proved the original inspiration for Schertlerâ€™s range of high quality pickups. Now, the Schertler LAFARO represents another milestone in Stephan Schertlerâ€™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 Schertlerâ€™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 LAFAROâ€™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 8â€ 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 â€“ 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 â€˜cello when strong amplification is needed. LAFARO is not cheap, nor is it lightweight. But thereâ€™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.
