Schertler STAT-PRE Electrostatic Preamp

The Schertler STAT-PRE preamplifier is the perfect choice for use with the Schertler series of electrostatic transducers for classic string instruments. Versatile and easy to use, STAT-PRE provides volume control in a compact package.

An innovative sub-bass filter protects the house system, or your on-stage amplifier, from distortion or potentially harmful signals caused by low-frequency spikes.

Class-A constant-current design ensures faithful sound reproduction while providing up to 500 hours of playing time from a single 9-volt battery.

Manufactured with a cast aluminum housing, the STAT-PRE can be floor-mounted or worn by the player with the optional belt clip.

Fapy Lafertin: Reverie

I was fortunate to study with Fapy Lafertin for a year. He is a master of the Gypsy jazz style, but also is skilled in playing straight ahead jazz, baroque, and Portuguese Fado. A transcription of the main theme to Reverie appears in my book Unaccompanied Django as Etude #3.

This video displays his mastery of Django’s music. Watch his right hand closely for a classic example of the Gypsy Picking technique. For more Fapy Lafertin check out his CDs Fleur Dennui ,Fine and Dandy, Django! A Tribute to Django Reinhardt, Live at the AB, and Hungaria.

Fapy also appears on the Django Legacy DVD.

The video archive is dedicated to Mary Honcoop. She generously shared her large collection of Gypsy videos with nearly anyone who asked. The video archive aims to continue her generosity now that she is gone.

The Video Archive is devoted surviving video of Django Reinhardt and other masters of the Gypsy jazz genre. If you enjoy these videos consider making a donation.
