Current State Of The Schaffer Replica Development – Gold Tag Version and Pedal – Part V

25 Nov Current State Of The Schaffer Replica Development – Gold Tag Version and Pedal – Part V

Dear Members,

long time no update. but now we have a big one:

All parts, PCBs, cases, everything needed for the Gold Tag production is ordered, and the cases and the PCBs are already in the works.

Also, Mr. Schaffer spent some elbow grease in 100 autographs on polished brass plates for the Gold Tag versions and our trusty member Headwhop (Jacob Yergert) made the labeling print designs for both the Gold Tag and the pedal.

We expect being able to start the Gold Tag delieveries in mid December, in “first come, first serve” order. 25 Gold Tags are still available at the time of writing.


For the pedal, PCBs and electronic parts are already ordered, pedal production will start in January, we expect the delieveries will start End of January/mid February.


We had some problems with the CE/EMV certification lab, which had no time slots free for testing our devices until January. Not to mention the costs of the certification, which is as high as 4.000 Euros.

But we need the certification and we will get our units certified. And instead of letting you wait another two months, we decided to declare all units as prototypes, which is totally legal, as long as you certify them later.

We will provide the certificate for Download here on the site when we have it.


Of course we will keep you updated with photos from the production process in the shops, if they allow us to take photos there.


Thank you so much for your patience, now its time to get something real in our hands.

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.

    You can do your own CE certification there is no need to use a lab. There is even a place in England you can use all the equipment and save a fortune.
    Also has some information.
    Good luck with the project
