Schaller Electronic GmbH, generally known as Schaller, is a high-end German manufacturer of components for musical instruments, most famous for their fully enclosed machine heads, which are standard on many top-of-the-line guitars and available as an extra cost option on many others.
The company was founded by Helmut Schaller as a radio repair shop in 1945. Later they started to provide quality hardware for musicians, including Les Paul who Schaller personally met. They are producing only in Germany at their location in Postbauer-Heng (Bavaria). They employ about 120 people (2006).
Schaller also manufactures machine heads for many other instruments, and also components and accessories including mutes, bows, pickups, tailpieces, bridges and tremolo arms, including Original Floyd Rose designs. They are known also for their Security Locks, which prevent the guitar from falling off its strap.
In the past Schaller was also a guitar amplifier manufacturer.
