26 May Less Is More: Mr. Marshall Switzerland Bruno Eicher talks about his TSR Gold Tag

Dear Members,

please say hello to Mr. Bruno Eicher, better known as “Mr. Marshall Switzerland”. I think this is quite the right name for him.

Gold Tags and vintage SG’s fit great together, no?

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

And of course he tried it out right after site member Daniel Meier (who obtained this unit for Bruno) handed over his unit. And as it seems, it sounds great on Orange amps as well:

As usual, I’ll hand over the mike to Bruno himself now:

Wow Wow Wow Yes, thats it! I’m speechless and totally happy with my TSR.

I thank God, Filippo Olivieri and the whole SoloDallas Team for their work and what they created. It took me the last 20 years to find the perfect sound for my projects. With the TSR and my Marshall Equipment, I finally found my personal Bruno Eicher sound.

In the past 20 years I tried lots of Effect/Boost devices, but the TSR Gold Tag beats them all and will always be my number one.

Conclusion No. 1 after the tests: less is more and and without any knick-knacks between (the GT) into the amp!

The TSR brings that honest earthy Rock’n Roll sound to my Marshall Equipment and my SGs.

With the right settings, it’s a breeze to play the right sound from clean to crunch just with the volume tuner on the guitar. And it’s amazing how clean the the single notes and chords are hearable.

Said it and picked up his guitar again (Facebook login required to watch video).

Bruno and his Marshalls. Actually, just a few of them.

This is how Marshall/Gibson addiction looks like in Switzerland. Bruno Eicher is mesmerized of the JMP100s from 1968 and 1972 and collected a few of them.

Bruno's SG's

Just a few of Bruno’s SG’s. Looks like a preference for a specific model?

 

I can only imagine how this wall of Marshalls would sound. Gives me goosebumps.

Final words from Bruno himself:

As an old, but still young in mind Rocker, I will start through again like in younger years and inspire all the humans out there! Maybe I’ll find on this way the missing band members who will part my passion with me.
I’m searching for: Singer (Bon Scott), Bassist, Rhythm guitarist, drummer!

So, if you wanna join Bruno and rock your ass off: hit it!

 

Bruno Salute

Final Salute from Bruno

 

Well, and if you ask me: Could I please be like him when I’m older?

21 May Another Little mystery unveiled by Angus Young in person (with help by Ken Schaffer, Then and Now)

Well, this surely isn’t a scoop… but I had forgotten to tell you about it.

While we (Ken Schaffer and I) were in Vancouver, at the Warehouse Studio meeting Angus Young to deliver The Schaffer Replica S/N001 to him personally, several subjects were touched.

It was then that – among other things – Angus told us about a little thing that used to be a mystery for some time to many (me included).

If you observe this picture,

you will certainly notice the mysterious item on the strap. (more…)
