Since we first introduced The Schaffer Replica EX Tower our customers’ most popular request has been for us to create a pedalboard-friendly stompbox with the same circuit. Well, you spoke and we listened! To our loyal fans who have waited so patiently, we proudly introduce the SoloDallas Storm.
The Storm features the same 100% analog signal path as our EX Tower that has quite literally rocked the guitar industry. It perfectly captures our signature “Schaffer Sound” voicing and offers three interactive circuits capable of generating a plethora of tones for every guitar configuration and genre of music.
GAIN knob controls our signature gain circuit that bumps the crucial low-mid frequencies responsible for giving live instruments punch and making them stand out in the mix (think Angus Young guitar tone). It also accentuates the 2ndand 3rdorder harmonics to produce the airy presence that is also associated with “The Schaffer Sound”.
LEVEL knob controls a powerful pre-amp capable of delivering a whopping 31db of clean boost. This analog boost is perfect for making lead parts stand out, adding fullness to the signal going into the front end of your amplifier or pushing it into oblivion!
LIMITER knob controls Ken Schaffer’s signature Opto-Isolator limiter. This circuit features his version of the gold standard “soft knee” compression used by major studio engineers worldwide. This discreet analog circuit levels the output of each individual frequency, allowing for perfect string separation at any gain level and produces “sustain for days”.
