31 Oct AC/DC’s “Walk All Over You”, The Schaffer Replica™ Series (A SoloDallas’ Cover) NOW WITH EQ Settings and RECORDING Details.

One of the first things that I want to let you know is that our videos won’t be blocked in any country from now on (unless they lock me up for copyright infringement, that is, which sooner or later they will and then some of you who have direct access to Mal or Ang will have to vouch for me). Our videos are now on our own server. Should be visible from any media player too, including the pads, peds, pods etc. (more…)

Details details… God is in the details, they say.

Before you proceed in reading this one, I ask that you read my previous one. The album “Highway To Hell” has naturally many things in common song for song first and foremost being, naturally, the way the guitars were recorded. So please make sure you read here “Walk All Over You” before continuing the short remainder below.

Having worked for so long on the previous “Walk All Over You”, has given me quite an insight on the whole album. You go back and forth listening to one song hundred of times, in mono, stereo, left channel, right channel. Everything can count to get it right when you are looking for hints (for your sound to match). (more…)

04 Oct Breaking News: LAST TSR™ Prototype Batch (for CE Validation) Arrived. Pre-Production Ended. Final Production Stage Entered.

Well,
I wanted to be the one to let you all know about this: I just got these pics from Franz minutes ago, fresh from Vienna (where I’m flying tomorrow morning for this). We have them. Final, definitive prototypes of both the Gold Tag Edition and the Pedal Version, minus the labeling (i.e., the graphics) are done. Metal case looks beautiful. VU Meter lights up. Love this stuff.

To you.

Thanks for waiting this long with me.

Love,

Filippo

04 Oct Test Driving A Schaffer Replica® Pedal & A Rock N Roll Relics Angus Model: AC/DC’s “You Shook Me All Night Long”

Here to you, the second part (out of… X) of our “Studio Day” in Los Angeles, CA last August, following up on our first Test Driving A Schaffer Replica™ Pedal & A Rock N Roll Relics Angus Model: AC/DC’s “Sin City” where Billy Rowe of RockNrollRelics.net and myself “test drove” our respective pieces of equipment (his “Angus” model SG Standard modeled after a late ’60s Gibson SG Standard with some specific requirements by me, first and foremost being, my requirement for playability and ease of set up whereas often vintage Gibson SGs really demand a lot of work for a number of reasons). The Studio was Gilby Clarke‘s own home studio (beautiful!) in Los Angeles. I can not quite describe the feeling of being there while looking at some gold albums affixed on the walls… felt pretty weird. Gilby was terrific with us. Completely down to earth, colloquial (i.e., liked to speak to us), just a common “rock n roll guy” like us. Since he’s been friends with Billy for a long time (probably since the teenager years) this surely helped. (more…)
