    Great playing on a great song! My question Fil is, Did Malcolm also use the Schaffer system in the studio from Powerage onwards or was it just Angus, and maybe Cliff?

      i think it was just Angus that used the SVDS as it was a very expensive piece of equipment, i think the band went full wireless when they hit the FTATR days i believe they used Sony wireless systems then

        This would be correct, only Angus ever used the SVDS in AC/DC. In FTATR however, Angus was still using the SDVS, which he did probably until at least 1984, when he was in fact interviewed about his sound (February 1984, “Angus Young: Seriously, Guitar Player) mentioning in fact, that he was still using the SVDS personally – this was the article that lit my mind back then). I don’t think the Sony devices had at the time “a sound” workable and comparable to the SVDS, which still Angus was using to his advantage.

        I now tend to believe the albums recorded with the SVDS are (at least):

        – Glasgow Show, “If You Want Blood”
        – Powerage
        – Highway To Hell
        – Back in Black
        – For Those About To Rock
        – Flick of The Switch

        Soundwise – let’s say – I have “proof” that the SVDS was used profusely in all of the above. I haven’t studied further with later albums… will do when I am done with the above 😉

          don’t forget – Let there be Rock The Movie

          HOWEVER i believe that some of the audio was patched together Bad Boy Boggie ending solo is a good shower of it what Angus is doing dosnt tally to what you hear!

          That film, Angus tone is still a mystery…

          you got any more thoughts on that Film Fil?

            SO true. Yes I do (have some new thoughts). I KNOW it’s a 2203 amp – nothing else than that, and it makes total sense considering that Highway To Hell was recorded probably exclusively with 2203s as well; as we all know, every live tour subsequent an album tries to re-capture the sound of the album itself, and Le There Be Rock (the Movie) was shot during the Highway To Hell album tour…
            As I am about to prove with a number of videos dedicated to understanding the studio album “Highway To Hell”, Angus had his guitar and amp setup in a peculiar way. This accounts for a big part of the sound, and this was retained in the live tour, including Let There Be Rock: one of the easiest things to detect is in fact the sound of 2203s AND Angus’ guitar tone knob to likely 5 or 4 (!). This is clearly heard on the movie as well. Will come back to this later 😉

                Because the grass is always greener over there… i.e., what we can’t (seemingly and for a while) get, we want. It’s so typical of us, isn’t it? 😆

                    That is the tone I want to discover as well. In all the pics I see of the boys in the HTH Tour, they were using 2203s but the earlier models with 4 inputs. Does this effect anything? I would imagine that the early 2203’s are different than the later ones.

    Awesome cover! Congratulations first for the rythmn section, and for Fil too, of course ; But for this song I really find the rythmn parts incredible. (Perhaps i focalize on this because I used to play the rythmn section in an ACDC cover band).
    Finally the duo is fantastic.
