13 Apr Vintage Trouble – Nalle Colt

Nalle Colt, guitar player for Vintage Trouble, trying out our Schaffer Replica (Tower and Pedal). We got in touch with Nalle (hi, Nalle!) and proposed him our products. He’ll see if they fit within Vintage Trouble without causing… too much trouble. For sure, we can say one thing: Nalle is one hot cat, a terrific human being and we just love Vintage Trouble as a band.

Vintage Trouble have just finished recording their second album (out on the 14 of August) and we strongly encourage people to give them a serious listen.

They are also a terrific live act. A class act, in fact – chosen as AC/DC’s opening act on the Rock or Bust World Tour.

Love, Fil.

14 Nov It’s Official: The Schaffer Replica was used on AC/DC’s album “Rock Or Bust” (Guitar Player Magazine)

Whew. I can finally say it out loud; or scream it. Or simply, continue to whisper it…ppst, the Schaffer Replica – an act of love initially, now a serious element of my entire life – has been used by Angus Young across the whole recording sessions for the latest AC/DC album – out on the next 2nd of December 2014 – “Rock Or Bust”.

The whole story is being covered by Guitar Player Magazine chief Editor Michael Molenda, who has interviewed Angus and Cliff yesterday in NYC (Michael was in touch with Ken Schaffer as well).

We will be interviewed as well for our side of the story next week, and the two stories – AC/DC’s new album and our “Schaffer Replica twist” will be mixed together in a main article on Guitar Player Magazine.

You can read of sneak preview of the paper article, due out on the January 2015 Guitar Player Magazine issue (thus out for us next December 2014, usually one month in advance) here


It’s funny, if you stop and  think about the following for a minute: my search for AC/DC (Angus) sound certainly started many, many years ago, but only got its more serious twist when I read that article on Guitar Player Magazine from 1984. It’s funny (strange) that I happen to be covered on the same magazine, exactly 30 years later.




(PS expect loads more of information and stuff from us; we were only working behind for all of this; tons of news and goodies to come in 2015!)
