SoloDallas Schaffer Replica EX Tower
The Schaffer Replica® EX Tower is the result of this recent painstaking reverse-engineering. Several new features were added in order to offer maximum audio quality and flexibility.
The most important new feature is a vintage design analog limiter derived from the opto-isolator found in the original TX10 transmitter. Previously overlooked in our first iterations of the Replica, this component delivers incredible dynamics and touch sensitivity.
The enclosure was also completely redesigned and now is an exact reproduction of the ’63EX’ receiver.
Many big names of the music industry also added the Schaffer tone to their setup. The Replica proved to be not just a tool for achieving the Back in Black guitar sound, but also was found to work excellently in a number of different musical styles and applications. Not surprising, since the SVDS had to work well on multiple instruments (bass, guitar, miked strings, brass, etc.)
But the overwhelming success prompted us to step up our game to keep up with the demand. The decision was made to move production to the United States of America.
Being true to our isolated obsessive nature (term coined by The Police’s Sting to describe a handful of his friends, notably Ken Schaffer), we couldn’t rest until we made sure that our products captured the very essence of the original SVDS. While our first attempt had been extremely successful, a second reverse-engineering of the Schaffer-Vega was in order now that we truly understood the potential of this forgotten piece of kit. Nothing less than perfection would be accepted.
