04 Oct Breaking News: LAST TSR™ Prototype Batch (for CE Validation) Arrived. Pre-Production Ended. Final Production Stage Entered.

Well,
I wanted to be the one to let you all know about this: I just got these pics from Franz minutes ago, fresh from Vienna (where I’m flying tomorrow morning for this). We have them. Final, definitive prototypes of both the Gold Tag Edition and the Pedal Version, minus the labeling (i.e., the graphics) are done. Metal case looks beautiful. VU Meter lights up. Love this stuff.

To you.

Thanks for waiting this long with me.

Love,

Filippo

04 Oct Test Driving A Schaffer Replica® Pedal & A Rock N Roll Relics Angus Model: AC/DC’s “You Shook Me All Night Long”

Here to you, the second part (out of… X) of our “Studio Day” in Los Angeles, CA last August, following up on our first Test Driving A Schaffer Replica™ Pedal & A Rock N Roll Relics Angus Model: AC/DC’s “Sin City” where Billy Rowe of RockNrollRelics.net and myself “test drove” our respective pieces of equipment (his “Angus” model SG Standard modeled after a late ’60s Gibson SG Standard with some specific requirements by me, first and foremost being, my requirement for playability and ease of set up whereas often vintage Gibson SGs really demand a lot of work for a number of reasons). The Studio was Gilby Clarke‘s own home studio (beautiful!) in Los Angeles. I can not quite describe the feeling of being there while looking at some gold albums affixed on the walls… felt pretty weird. Gilby was terrific with us. Completely down to earth, colloquial (i.e., liked to speak to us), just a common “rock n roll guy” like us. Since he’s been friends with Billy for a long time (probably since the teenager years) this surely helped. (more…)

30 Sep “Back In Black In The Living Room” (With AC/DC Italy’s Fan Club Founder)

It was several years ago (5 probably) that Gabriele and I met “online”, both passionate about AC/DC as we have always been since an early age.

And it had been years that we wanted to do some jamming together, so he took the chance and came to Rome – he’s from Milan – and stayed a couple days at my place. In probably 1 hour we had setup my living room (it’s a beautiful, long and bright room with wooden floors) with a couple of Wizards, older Marshall cabinets (his has G12H30s, mine cross G12-65s & G12Ms, all from the 1970s) and two Audio Technica AT4047s connected to my Mac Book laptop, recording with Audacity. We improvised probably 5 or 6 AC/DC tunes among the many (I believe almost all) that we know, but we only used the backing tracks on a couple of songs and one is the one you see here (second one to be published next week).
