Current State Of The Schaffer Replica Development – Gold Tag Version – Part II

05 Nov Current State Of The Schaffer Replica Development – Gold Tag Version – Part II

Dear members,

here’s the second update on as we told in the previous Replica news post, we’re currently working on plexiglass prototypes. Number one is assembled and working now, the other two will follow on Wednesday. And on Thursday Franz will enter the plane to Rome to bring two of them to Fil, for video and audio recordings.

Just keep in mind that these are still prototypes and “intermediate” versions, in its development state between the very first prototype you heard in this posting and the final version we will build for you.

The final version will have one more knob at the front which will allow you to mute the signal for playing pauses without turning the whole unit off.

Since the Replica is built after the original SVDS, it’s operated similar. The left tuner adjusts the SVDS Transmitter input sensitivity, which is basically a boost/compression tuner, the right tuner adjusts the front “Monitor” output volume of the SVDS, basically another boost.

Guitar input is at the front, signal output and footswitch connectors are at the rear, together with the On/Off switch which includes the fuse and a mains power noise filter. The “Boost” LED shows the state of the true bypass: “Boost” on means Replica engaged, “Boost off” means guitar signal is passed through the unit. The bypass itself is done with a relay and super silent.

Enjoy some photos:

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.

    Looking great guys! I can’t wait to hear the A/B with the original SVDS. I’m sure the replica will be spot on!

    Also, thanks for thinking about the different world-wide voltages. I totally forgot about that little detail. No need to worry any longer. :-)

    This is looking great! Cant wait to hear this again 😀
    Banane, just a quick question, what voltage will the unit run on? Here in the UK we use 240v witha 3 pin plug, will we need to adapt to suit the unit or are you changing the unit depending on where its going?

      Yes, it depends on the country of the buyer. We’ll build 110V and 220V versions.
