    Came across this picture of ACE Frehley in 1977.. Is that a Schaefer Vega transmitter on his guitar strap. http://www.mylespaul.com/gallery/data/500/29Jun_to_03Jul77_Newburgh_NY.jpg

      Yes indeed, thats a Svds transmitter. Some months ago a Kiss-owned Svds transmitter was on Ebay, maybe it was this one.

    Cool! Bromont is like 30 minutes from where I live! Too bad I was only about three years old when this show happened…

      Well it WAS the best one. Technology then improves, things move forward (not always).
      Today’s technology is better in terms of wireless capacity; not so sure about the sound of it. This one definitely had its own sound which helped shape some great musicians tone.
      Please be patient, we will post updates when available.
      Thanks, Fil

            Sorry, I’m a bit impatient. When I search something I love I can’t stop me…..
            So, I’m sorry for the disturb and I’ll try to be patient.
            I was becoming crazy to search the SVDS on internet (I searched it for a full year), but this Summer (luckily) I’ve found Solodallas and from that moment I’m often on this site to give new information.
            I hope you know me, now.
            Thank you for your help and to Solodallas
            Give me always new information, please…..

              Pietro,
              when information will be available – as soon as it available to ME – you will all get it. As of now, the prototype is still being developed and in its in final stages. Once the prototype is finished, tested and demo’ed right here, production will commence. Still some time to go. Be patient, it will be worth it, you have my word.

      He really reminds me of Johnny Winter here aside from the extra effects he’s got going.

    the guitar must be out of tune after that whammy work…he then goes into the volume swell work. I’m sure if he played normal the guitar would be out of tune

    Cool. From about 00:38 to 1:02 it sounds extremely similar to Jimi Hendrix’s improvisation at Woodstock.

    Pretty sick, considering this was pretty early on. Any well known eddie van halen performances when he was using the Schaffer?
