        Hi mate, as of today we’re at about 75 GTs and over 130 Pedals worldwide. We’re pretty proud of this.

        Thanks,

        Fil

    Hi, is it too late to order the gold tag version? I emailed some months ago when it was first announced, but I don’t think I heard anything back. I’ve just finished building a JTM45 replica and it needs this baby in front of it.

      Hi Nick,
      and sorry for the late reply! I am sorry that your first email slipped through our fingers… would you so kindly re-send another one at replica-preorder@solodallas.com? We’ll take care of you immediately as – yes – a few more GTs are available! Thanks, yours, Fil :)

      Hi mate, yep currently in USA and nope… no delays because of this. Your question is actually great in timing as I think (can I, Franz?) publicly announce that we’re going into production… today. Haha. True! We finally figured out the last aesthetically-related tidbits and made final decision yesterday to go into production today.
      We don’t have a date for delivery yet, only a serious “Fall (Autumn)” time objective/goal to ship ’em all out.
      I do thank you immensely for having waited this long, and I think I can easily re-state that you will love what you get… haven’t stopped using mine (even here in the US) since I got the first prototype. I never plug in my guitar without my Replica. Not even in Guitar Rig (which is all I have here). And chance is also a good one to reveal that… yes… our Replica DOES make wonders with Guitar Rig, too! Completely changes the sound of it, adding that “Magic Angus” (to me at least) touch that we all need/want/love.

      Can send audio tests… hahaha!

      Have a good one now,
      Fil 😉

        YAY!!!! production time!!!

        Would be cool if Mr Schaffer constructed the first one just for old times sake!

        im glad you have been using guitar rig Fil you know im a heavy user of it 😛 and i hope you can share your findings (settings) that make the best use of the replica

        of course i will be diving deep into tone searching again once i get it “ultra happy times” 😀

        And what about the pedal version? Where are you at with that one? :)

          AS SOON AS the FIRST complete one is done (serial number 001) we will do a professional photo shoot and use the photos to further promote the Replica internationally. So you WILL SEE it the first day it comes out of our labs – I promise you. And only here on sd.com at first, naturally. You guys have be SO great to us.
          Pedal version news: production started yesterday, too. Contrary to what we were planning originally, we want to roll out these too as soon as we can. We REALLY want these things to go to their homes.

            What a news! Thank you, Fil! The ball is rolling now and can’t be stopped. :)

            Is the SN #001 piece, the one that is going to make it to AY himself? 😉

            Probably too much questions, LOL.

    Does anyone have an idea of what pedals would somewhat mimic the circuit of the SVDS? (Boost and Comp) I’m using a Joyo Ultimate drive now (clone of an OCD), and will probably get the Biyang C10 Comp (clone of the MXR Dyna Comp)
    Thanks!

      Yes, the TSR, The Schaffer Replica will do this. To find this tone, you’ll need it to get it “all the way”

      It is unreplical in the sense of using other hardware (pedals and that), to get the same tone you will need the TSR :)

      We have all tried this but the SVDS has such a unique sound it is impossible to recreate

      all the best

        LOL despite how much I could easily despise myself for saying this… I too haven’t found ANY pedal (or anything else for that matter) that can replicate the SVDS but our Replica! The only thing that comes close is the Cetec-Vega, that you guys saw me use at first, and that ONLY after serious (knowledgeable) modification of the transmitter. But that it’s even slightly different, so that only – really – with the SVDS I could figure out finally how Angus made “those sounds” and I think I was finally able to “nail them” (wasn’t I?). And I’m not done yet! The thing is that the compressor built in our Replica is not even a simple compressor, despite the “one knob” that it has. It will compress dynamically depending on signal strength. And it will “fatten” the sound by itself immensely, as you raise its sensitivity via the knob. The boost is the most powerful boost I have EVER found/heard on earth. Nothing comes close that I ever tried.

    Hi Franz! Thanks For The Reply. I Think Its Really Cool That Mr. Schaffer Is Involved. Has He Been Able To Hear The Replica Compared To The Original And What Are His Thoughts About The Replica? He Seems To Really Care About Getting It Right. Thanks Again!

      Yes, Mr Schaffer was involved from the beginning on and heard the first recordings and compared audio with us even before we put the first few tracks online.
      He’s also involved in the build process and committed his part of knowledge. Basically, its us 4 working close together, everybody putting in his best.

    Hey guys! So once the changes to the case are made will you immediately start production or will you have to get the CE certification first? I also appreciate all the hard work you all have put into this. I can’t wait for it to arrive. It’ll be an early Christmas!

      CE certification goes in parallel, the missing part ist just an optical change, son we wont have to wait. Still, it takes time and even for me its like sitting on coal to wait for being able to give green lights for the production start.

      Well, at the moment we are waiting for an optical change to the Gold Tag case requested by Mr. Schaffer (original SVDS inventor). If that is done, we go right into production.
