Whew. I can finally say it out loud; or scream it. Or simply, continue to whisper it…ppst, the Schaffer Replica – an act of love initially, now a serious element of my entire life – has been used by Angus Young across the whole recording sessions for the latest AC/DC album – out on the next 2nd of December 2014 – “Rock Or Bust”.
The whole story is being covered by Guitar Player Magazine chief Editor Michael Molenda, who has interviewed Angus and Cliff yesterday in NYC (Michael was in touch with Ken Schaffer as well).
We will be interviewed as well for our side of the story next week, and the two stories – AC/DC’s new album and our “Schaffer Replica twist” will be mixed together in a main article on Guitar Player Magazine.
You can read of sneak preview of the paper article, due out on the January 2015 Guitar Player Magazine issue (thus out for us next December 2014, usually one month in advance) here
It’s funny, if you stop and think about the following for a minute: my search for AC/DC (Angus) sound certainly started many, many years ago, but only got its more serious twist when I read that article on Guitar Player Magazine from 1984. It’s funny (strange) that I happen to be covered on the same magazine, exactly 30 years later.
(PS expect loads more of information and stuff from us; we were only working behind for all of this; tons of news and goodies to come in 2015!)
SoloDallas featured in GEARPHORIA magazine: “JUST how much does Filippo at SoloDallas want you to sound like Angus Young? A lot. So much so that he has made it a mission to reverse engineer one of Angus’ trademark pieces of kit. Not an amp or pedal mind you… it’s his ‘70s era Schaffer wireless system. And we can attest, it makes a surprisingly significant difference. The SoloDallas Schaffer Replica gives both bloom and depth to your guitar tone… making a vintage Marshall sound more like three vintage Marshalls. It is a pretty impressive thing to hear in person. We suggest if you have the opportunity to hear one for yourself, do it. The replica does away with the wireless aspect, but not the punch it gave to Angus’ signature roar.”
