14 Sep The Schaffer Replica at Guitar Player!
Of course the TSR has been something of a secret… You know, labor of love here on SD. But a lot of things are converging… Our first production run – sold out on the GT and on the pedal – the great unsolicited comments our first users have begun posting here… Then, Fil’s trip to Vancouver to meet with Angus, and the new album – possibly before the end of the year, to celebrate AC/DC’s 4 decades!!
And now the TSR, that started as a “little special something” for our SoloDallas members… is breaking out: we just got the news that “Guitar Player” Magazine has just today published a sneak preview, “The “Secret” of Angus Young’s Classic AC/DC Guitar Sound?” about the TSR. (If you remember, it was a February 1984 “Guitar Player” interview with Angus Young, when asked “Do you use any effects,” he said “I only use a Schaffer-Vega wireless” which brought Fil on the right track on his search for the “Back in Black” tone.)
From the few hundred units we built and sold to SD members during our first production, word has already spread and we’re up to our eyeballs in store and distributor requests… and deciding right now whether to keep the TSR a special “boutique” pedal or to commit to a much bigger production run.
Please enjoy GP’s first article – and video – ever mentioning our TSR here:
They even made a short unboxing video… with a really solid peek at “before” and “after”!
