A little update on the SVDS replica

03 Feb A little update on the SVDS replica

Hello Guys,

just want to give you a little update on the SVDS replica production.

Basically, it’s a rather complex process. Board layouts, chassis case, production planning, lots of details to consider.

Currently, we are finishing the final layout schematics and searching for a good chassis case that matches the original. Very likely it will be manufactured exclusively for us.

A second prototype needs to be built as sample for the factory. The replica will be built in Austria by a company specialized in small production runs of high quality electronic devices.

They offer production quality on really high levels, inhouse production of every single part, internal QA of every single device while keeping the costs at a moderate level. There will be no compromise made to the manufacturing and parts quality. They will build a handful of replicas first which will then be tested and demo-ed by Fil again to assure the tonal quality and matching to the original SVDS.

Prices are still not known yet, too many factors are still unknown. But we want to let you know that we are still working on it in the background. Good things just needs their time.

Stay tuned,

Your SoloDallas team Fil & Franz ๐Ÿ™‚

I'm born 1970, a big AC/DC fan since 1982, when I got the "Back in Black" cassette tape together with a little cassette player from my grandpa. Fully classic rock addicted, don't like "modern" music styles like HipHop. 2009 I got a Gibson SG standard ebony, learning to play AC/DC songs from tabs and videos since then. Beside that, I'm a totally computer addicted guy and Linux Server specialist. Working as internet server and network admin and part-time IT consultant. So, when I'm not behind my guitar, I'm behind the keyboard :-) Feel free to contact me at ICQ 71095781 or MSN banane@exception.at or skype ffarklas@exception.at.

    Great to hear an update every now and then. I think we can all agree that we would rather wait for the best rather than have something less sooner. Keep at it !
