26 Oct Current State Of The Schaffer Replica Development – Gold Tag Version – Part I

Dear members,

this posting is dedicated to the current status of the making of our Replica, which we called officially “The Schaffer Replica”.

So, what’s the current state? As per today, the 26th October 2012, we have:

  • Case: Prototyping status
  • Electronics: Circuits, Schematics and sound testing done, awaiting case prototype to make the final PCBs (yes, there are two in the final product) fit into the case

We also accomplished to find original SVDS tuner knobs which will be made for us for the most possible original look.

To get further with the case we made a few prototypes in plexiglass to have something in our hands before we order hundred or more metal cases. You know, making sure that everything fits.

So, this is what we have for now, case-wise. We got them from the shop yesterday evening and brought them to our tech Markus for assembling. And because they look so cool (at least we like them), we’ll have a comeback of the Raiders in early November and make a few videos with them.

Have a look at our case prototypes:

19 Oct The SVDS Replica Preordering opened!

Dear members,

here we go. This is the preorder page for the Gold Tag version of the SVDS Replica.

To sum up the facts, what will you get with the Gold Tag version of the SVDS Replica?
An identical sounding replica of the Schaffer-Vega Diversity System wireless guitar device used by Angus from 1978 to circa 1982 and many other famous bands in late 70s and 80s like The Rolling Stones, Fleetwood Mac, Pink Floyd, Kiss, The Grateful Dead, Peter Frampton, Aerosmith, Earth, Wind & Fire, Black Sabbath and Van Halen.

  • An almost identical looking case with original tuner knobs, VU meter and everything. The same “face” as the original.
  • 100% identical sound. With way more boost capabilities.
  • We will produce 100 units which will be personally signed und numbered by Mr. Schaffer himself.
  • It will even include the cool stickers you see on the sides of the original SVDS. See below.
  • The SVDS Replica will NOT operate as a wireless unit. You plug your guitar in on the front and connect it to your amp on the back. But of course you can use a wireless unit between guitar and Replica.
