We apply the same set of values to our products as you would expect from your instrument: Quality, precision, reliability and innovation.
Schaller - The Original Innovators
We at Schaller are the original innovators, and have molded and shaped the development of guitar hardware like no other company.
Have you ever asked yourself why our M6 machine heads are called M6, or why our S6 pickups are called S6? The "M" stands for "Machine head" and the "6" denotes 6 units; the "S" stands for "Single coil", and the "6" denotes that the pickup is for 6-string guitar. Many others would like to have this product code, but Schaller has it - because Schaller was the first, the pioneer.
The spirit of innovation has now been alive for decades, and has given birth to pioneering inventions such as the tremolo, the locking machine head, Security Locks and our "Hannes" bridge.
We always want to remain a step ahead of the rest - after all, your satisfaction is our goal, and we don't want you to have to settle for anything less than perfection.
Schaller - The trademark!
What musician is not familiar with the unmistakable Schaller logo? The famous Schaller "S" is both a seal of quality and a trademark, but also a promise - the promise to supply you with nothing but the highest quality products. This means that each product has to go through a complex quality inspection at the end of each stage in production. As we said before, a good name brings obligations with it!
Every musician associates the Schaller brand with the highest standards of quality and the finest in innovative engineering work.
Are we resting on our laurels? Certainly not. After all, we have to keep the promise we made to you.
Schaller stands for quality, innovation, precision, craftsmanship and reliability. The brand is what makes the difference!
The name Schaller represents uncompromising quality from the very start.
How much string tension can a machine head withstand while still maintaining tuning stability? How many times can the mechanism of a Security Lock be opened and closed while still keeping the guitar firmly attached to the strap? No detail escapes our attention - everything is constantly being tested, and then tested again.
Every component used in our products is manufactured with the highest degree of precision, ensuring extreme durability and reliability.
"Made in Germany" remains an internationally recognized seal of quality for products of distinguished quality and innovative, cutting-edge technology. We make it our unconditional duty to uphold this.
For us, a machine head is not "only" a machine head. For us it is a concerto of high-precision individual components, innovative functions, multiple coatings and highly robust, elegant finishes. Our goal can only be achieved if all of the countless matching components and craftsmanship are perfectly in tune with one another:
Durability, great tone, tuning stability, ergonomic and elegant design, in short everything that makes it a joy to play.
Schaller - the secret of top-quality finishes
Machine heads have to withstand a whole lot. Mechanical friction, sweat, temperature changes, string tension - but the surface still needs to look great after years of use.
The secret lies in our hi-tech, computer-controlled galvanizing process. The difference-maker is what the naked eye can't see. A special, precision-controlled layer structure and the finest materials come together to produce a surface that is both high-quality and also extremely durable and resistant to both scratches and sweat.
The product is polished both before and after - once for the bottom layer which holds everything together, and again for a high shine; all in all a complicated production technique which even our specialists have had to spend years mastering.
You want to do business with someone competent? No problem! We produce high quality products, but if - against expectations - something doesn't work, we are only too happy to help you.
Whether it's a technical problem, a small mishap or a missing spare part - we will make sure you're back to making music and having fun again in no time.
With Schaller, what matters most to you is in the best possible hands.
Simply write to us using the contact form under "Contact" - we will reply as quickly, competently and unbureaucratically as possible.
