08 Feb Current State Of The Schaffer Replica Development – Gold Tag Version and Pedal – Part V

Dear members,

we have another update for you.  Our tech got the PCBs for the production sample prototype units of the SVDS Replica, Gold Tag version AND Pedal version! Yes…also the pedal!

While the pedal version will take some more time and will be released after the Gold Tag version, we are really after it.

For now, enjoy this photo freshly from the lab of our tech Markus, who will assemble three working prototypes of each the big Gold Tag version and Pedal version. One of each will go to Fil for testing, tonal approving and demoing, one of each will go to the case builder/assembly shop as sample. We’re getting closer again! And, as usual, we keep you all updated.

(In case somebody is wondering why we publish photos of our blank boards, be assured that we also took some actions to prevent copying the layout or retracing the schematics.)

Excited,

Your SoloDallas.com team

26 Jan Current State Of The Schaffer Replica Development – Gold Tag Version – Part IV

Dear members,

Just a small update on our progress on the TSR Replica build/production:

Pedal version

  • The work on the TSR pedal version started, all layouts and schematics were done.
  • Parts and PCBs for three TSR pedal prototypes are ordered.
  • We expect the first three TSR pedal prototypes to be ready for testing at mid February.
  • Of course Fil will demo the TSR pedal prototypes.
  • One of the TSR pedal prototypes will go to the case builder as manufacturing sample.
  • The pedal will be housed in a standard 100mm x 100mmm black Aluminium cast pedal case.

Gold Tag version

  • We mentioned a problem with the Gold Tag TSR which is solved now: the case is a bit too small to put the PCB at the bottom, so we had to rearrange it to the left side and change a few things.
  • Also here we ordered a few prototype PCBs and parts to build a fully functional pre-production prototype.
  • This pre-production prototype will also be ready by mid February and will also go to the case builder company as manufacturing sample.

We will update you with a few photos as soon as possible.

Update as per 29th January 2013: First photos of the Gold Tag case available, please see below. No marking yet. We will update you with more photos during the progress. Have fun!
