Schertler Announces LaFaro Deluxe Combo Amp for Double Bass

Schertler LaFaro Deluxe Combo AmpSwiss company Schertler has introduced the LaFaro Deluxe, a 2-channel, 280-watt bi-amplified combo amp designed specifically with double bass in mind. The amp’s name and image are a tribute to jazz bass icon Scott LaFaro, who revolutionized jazz bass in his short career.

It sports an 8? woofer designed specifically for the amp with a long linear extension for strong and clear lows with natural sounding mids as well as a 1? tweeter for smooth high end.

The LaFaro offers tons of connectivity with inputs for pickups or microphones and 3 DI outputs- one for each channel and one master output. Even further, it has an effects loop and an auxiliary output. Each channel has a Gain control and a 4-band EQ with a resonance control.

According to Schertler, the LaFaro Deluxe will be available in about two months. The price is yet to be determined. For more info, check out the Schertler website.
