Created as a 1:1 replica of the original Schaffer-Vega Diversity System audio circuitry, The Schaffer Replica has a very unique sound signature. This device brings back that elusive sound heard on albums such as AC/DC's Back in Black and Highway to Hell.
This is our 'classic' offering, being directly derived from our very first iteration of the Schaffer Replica, the Gold Tag, which was used and is being used by many big names of the music industry, notably Angus Young himself on AC/DC's Rock or Bust album and tour.
The circuit is 100% analog and features a compander (compressor-expander), giving your tone extra sustain, fatness and a rich harmonic content, as well as a very powerful pre-amp, capable of delivering up to 30db of clean boost.
The TSR Pedal is built using SMD components in order to get a more compact product still retaining the same tone as the first Gold Tag units. It is housed in a durable custom metal enclosure and also features the same knobs used on the original SVDS.
Many players still love the stronger midrange offered by our 'classic' TSR. There you have it - just as it was back then when we were starting in our small lab in Europe - now made in the USA.
NOTE: This is NOT a wireless unit.
