Playing “Clean” An Original Schaffer Vega Diversity at Borghesani’s/Cloe Guitars

15 Sep Playing “Clean” An Original Schaffer Vega Diversity at Borghesani’s/Cloe Guitars

It’s a little, foolish video we did the other day at the Lab.

I had heard suddenly  Daniel’s (the singer)  voice (he was silently and diligently working to some amp internals and at some point he went “Oh Ba-by!”) and I thought to myself “Woah there. Good singer”.

So I asked him to do a little blues jingle for 2 minutes.

I took the chance to play my Schaffer Vega with it.

Guitar is latest Luca’s (Cloe Guitars) 1959 Replica done to exacting specs. Great guitar.

Enjoy?

Recorded with a 4th Generation Apple iPhone.

PS in the background, you can hear a PLEK machine going off lol.

 

PS2: the sound of the guitar I am playing – you can probably hear it – is full, rounded. Beautiful cleans. THAT is also the Schaffer Vega! Superb Compressor.

 

PS3: after several pleasing comments on Daniel’s peculiar voice and intensity I am posting here more of Daniel’s stuff. It’s live. Considering he’s Italian (for what I know), I think Daniel is a natural talent (wait: why did I specify that? Because Blues is not part of our culture; who has it, has it). He’s being playing AND singing for little more than two years. Impressive.

I usually don’t listen to today’s blues. Usually. To him, I listen to. It really reminds me of the yesteryear blues. When it used to be about feeling, feelings and soul. This guy has ’em all. Enjoy.

    Paisanos, paisanos, paisanos! I am so proud of Fil and Daniels. They are true blues men. And from Italy! My home country. Wow! Daniel reminds me of my uncle in Southern Italy who has passed away. His son, my cousin looks very similar as well. Can’t wait to visit my aunt in Rome so I can look you guys up!

    Great job by Daniel in the second video. What’s with the Beyounce video in the background? So out of place.

      Mate, please read carefully. Yes it does have its own sound. It’s been said many times, across many, many articles, posts, comments.
      I do understand well your passion, but you must read well and everything there is around here. This is going to be a good exercise for you, and you’ll learn lots. Please be patient just like everyone else. We’re working hard for this to happen very soon. You have my word. Thanks, Fil

    Thank you. I live in Rome and I only want to know about the Schaffer Vega Diversity System and Marshall Metal face super lead (1959). If I find and buy these objects I’ll obtain all that I want.
    Your site is the only one that help me in this. So, help me and I’ll thank you again.

      They do, but they arent in abundance, and even fewer of those are for sale. Here’s what you get if you just input “Marshall Super Lead” into an eBay search:

      http://www.ebay.com/sch/i.html?_nkw=marshall+super+lead&_sacat=0&_odkw=marshall+metal+face&_osacat=0&_trksid=p3286.c0.m270.l1313

      Or you could try a local used music store, or a local listing service, like craigslist.

      Where are you from? We may be able to help you more if we knew.

          Craiglist is an online listing for used stuff. I suggest you look into ebay, I think there’s several metal faces there.
