      Sorry Nick for the late reply. Our ambassador Ant is just right (thank you, Mr. Ambassador ๐Ÿ˜† ) that is price of the TSRโ„ข Pedal, plus shipping (still unknown, we estimate circa USD30-40 per Pedal shipment, tracked).

      Thanks,
      Fil

    This is gonna be sooo great when it comes through Fil
    I’ve been using a Box of Rock for boost up to now but it’s a tad violent and the Replica seems more subtle in a gnarly, growly, don’t move I’m gonna pounce way !

      I happen to have the bor too, will compare them and report here verbally to tell about differences.
      Naturally I am one of testers of our own product and… Using it as much as I am brought me to the conclusion that this “tool” should be in the home of every guitar player in the world.
      We are now working for this objective :)

        Hi Fil,

        saw your other youtube video where youยดre playing with the “The Rock ‘n’ Roll Relics “Angus” Model.Do you know what bridge pickup and electronics were used in this model ? Sounds pefect to me !!! The Marshall2203 + Schaffer pedal + this guitar = AWESOME AC/DC SOUND !!!!!!!
        Since Iยดm playing only at home with Amplitube 3 software I wish IK multimedia would model your Schaffer pedal so I could replicate this sounds at a bedroom level.Maybe you can ask them to do it. I would buy it immediately !

      I couldn’t live without a 1959. I know it’s also Angus’ favourite, but it definitely is MY favorite amp of all times ๐Ÿ˜€

        Well, I told you how I fell in love with my 2203 and the G12-65, but the more I listen to a 1959 the more I want one, so I gotta find one of those too ๐Ÿ˜†
        But the more I play my 2203 the more I love it, I think I found what I was looking for with an amp :)

    Bravo Fil, can hear you have refined the tone since the demos (i know you used extremes:) )

    Can hear that fat wide bass tones but yet searing highs and every nauance from your hands, beautiful!

      You’ve been listening. Yes, all you said was right on. You know those videos are extremes exactly to show just HOW much power is thrown at an amp (fully boosted Replica). Here the boost was just above the minimum (at minimum or zero – closed knob – no sound comes out!) with just a tad of boost from the booster; the rest of the boost came from the compressor knob that was maxed out. With THIS Pedal, a whole lot of things are possible. I too look forward to you all having yours, suggesting settings, combinations etc. Enjoy, Fil! :)

        you should make a page dedicated for the TSR so people can do such thing :)

        noticed you seemed so gental with the picking on the bib solo, this ture? i can remember Angus saying in an interview that he moves around alot but is “gentle”

          Yes it’s a good – great – idea. Consider this done (section)!
          YES. I was actually always gentle – or tried to – always. Brushing gently. Reason is also that the TSR has basically two sounds, just by touching. If you touch really, really gently, you get one sound. If you strike harder, to get the other one, which is harsher, more acid etc. I truly believe – especially when using the SVDS – Angus became aware of this too, and used it to perfection in several different ways.

            i think one good example of this is on shake a leg solo at 2:24 ish then at 2:56 ish his tone changes drasticaly :)

              Hey Ant, good find! I think this is true. I really recognize the change in the sound, the second part of the solo is CERTAINLY with SVDS, first not I think.

              Nice!

                Always makes me think what Angus/Tony did to change the tone that way i bet they used the SVDS on both but angus played the second part separetly but just changed a few settings and mic positions

                  Maybe he just played the solo two times, with and without SVDS and Platt just mixed in both variants?

                    When I met Platt, this was his version: “Angus played ALL the solos of BinB from the recording room, WITH the SVDS. All of them. After inspection in New York – at the time of mixing – some parts of some solos turned out to be out of tune(!). Therefore, we had to re-record them. The SVDS had been packed away, coming away from Compass Studios – at the Bahamas – so we didn’t have it. We had to try and match that sound, but we were not able to. I Still hear the difference in sound to this days”. Between quotes, were Tony Platt’s words in person, Fil ๐Ÿ˜‰

            Fil, does the Replica and SVDS alike allow for the sound to not be clean when brushing because I find it way to clean brushing when a 1959 style amp is on 7. That also leads me to ask how hard you are hitting the strings by saying brush. Also do you brush for solos and rhythm or just solos? Interesting to say the least.

              Also the brushing thing could’ve been a studio (and live?) trick from the beginning so he could crank up the amps. Because brushing does result in an audible decrease in volume.

            Well I think he made a mistake there. Shoot to thrill actually sounds like it WAS SVDS. At least for the most part. Now, Shake A Leg – the second part of the solo is most definitely NOT SVDS. Go there, listen to it then you’ll tell me :)

              yep second is not SVDS i can hear the same bass tones fil has it has that bigger wider sounding edge to it, the second part sounds thinner and more sharp bit like its missing another mic to capture the rest of it or somthing lol
