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

26 Jan Current State Of The Schaffer Replica Development – Gold Tag Version – Part IV

Dear members,

Just a small update on our progress on the TSR Replica build/production:

Pedal version

  • The work on the TSR pedal version started, all layouts and schematics were done.
  • Parts and PCBs for three TSR pedal prototypes are ordered.
  • We expect the first three TSR pedal prototypes to be ready for testing at mid February.
  • Of course Fil will demo the TSR pedal prototypes.
  • One of the TSR pedal prototypes will go to the case builder as manufacturing sample.
  • The pedal will be housed in a standard 100mm x 100mmm black Aluminium cast pedal case.

Gold Tag version

  • We mentioned a problem with the Gold Tag TSR which is solved now: the case is a bit too small to put the PCB at the bottom, so we had to rearrange it to the left side and change a few things.
  • Also here we ordered a few prototype PCBs and parts to build a fully functional pre-production prototype.
  • This pre-production prototype will also be ready by mid February and will also go to the case builder company as manufacturing sample.

We will update you with a few photos as soon as possible.

Update as per 29th January 2013: First photos of the Gold Tag case available, please see below. No marking yet. We will update you with more photos during the progress. Have fun!

Your SoloDallas Team

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.

    This whole thing takes very long, and I fully understand that. But that is the reason for me to ask now, in february, if you can say anything about the possibility of me having a pedal in my hands in july? We have some fantastic gigs in august and september, and I would love to play them with the TSR!

      Simple and short answer: Yes, you will have it by then.

    Looks Great :). Good job guys. I just can’t wait. What a pure joy to plug it into my bugera 1960 :).

    Well me I do not need a SVDS because I achieved this tone with a modified marshal amp and modified SD Pearly Gates pickup on an SG standard. Both modified for higher output/gain. So I’m good.

        And the fact that I don’t have much money to even get this.

      its not just about extra gain.. this system has a profound compressor as well, this isn’t just your regular overdrive pedal. Fil has special amps, most people here have an amp that u can get a lot of gain out of but when it comes down to it, its just not the same sound as the SVDS

        I definitely agree but first is there probably all preordered out and don’t want to spend 540 on it. second is I like the tone I get out of my amp and pickups. When I play an ACDC song it sounds just like it. Also I hook it up with Guitar Rig as well which definitely improves it too.

          Oh well, we have plenty units left yet. As long as we don’t say “we’re sold out”, we aren’t.

          Would be nice if you post a video or some sound samples in the “User Video” section (see “Members Content” in the top menu).

              Oh well, still optimizing the shookme solo, playing rhythm stuff from several AC/DC songs. Not sure if just various rhythm playing would be enough for posting a video?

                Sure it is mate, why wouldn’t it be enough ?

                Rhythm playing also shows the feeling you developped in your hands, and that’s actually more important than soloing !
                So keep vids coming ! :)
