15 Sep Playing “Clean” An Original Schaffer Vega Diversity at Borghesani’s/Cloe Guitars

It’s a little, foolish video we did the other day at the Lab.

I had heard suddenly  Daniel’s (the singer)  voice (he was silently and diligently working to some amp internals and at some point he went “Oh Ba-by!”) and I thought to myself “Woah there. Good singer”.

So I asked him to do a little blues jingle for 2 minutes.

I took the chance to play my Schaffer Vega with it.

Guitar is latest Luca’s (Cloe Guitars) 1959 Replica done to exacting specs. Great guitar.

Enjoy?

14 Sep The Sound Of The Schaffer Vega Diversity (Back in Black)

I know… I know! But you knew that I can’t get enough of it. It’s my passion, my torment, my obsession. And the most sold album worldwide, as well.

Well., let me update you a bit about what has been going on behind the curtains recently.

I knew – directly from Mr. Schaffer – that the “Angus Young” era of the Schaffer Vega came with a Receiver AND a specific type of transmitter.

It was the X10 – naturally – but a specific type of X10. It had (has) a black knob instead of the flat screw of the later models. I really wanted THAT X10 (because I knew that that would give me the sound I was looking for).

13 Sep “Back in Black” Tone Attempt (Cetec Vega Diversity)

I am silent, but that doesn’t mean I am not working. Hectically, actually (replica Schaffer, performances, new ideas, etc.).

I have studied more in depth and tried more experiments.

Here’s my latest attempt.

Hoping you’ll enjoy it,

Back in Black Cetec Vega FRONT Boost Latest Attempt

 

PS It was recorded with the Cetec Vega – not the Schaffer – as both my working units are at the lab!

11 Sep “Why AC/DC Matters” (By Anthony Bozza)

While “Bozza” in Italian means “Draft”, this book ain’t no draft at all. THIS is THE real book which finally (about time!) explains what I have been trying to say for several years.

I am so glad someone like Mr. Bozza has dedicated time and energy to writing this.

 

Strongly suggested purchase (I bought the eBook last night and have almost finished it already).

Yours,

 

Fil :)
