Frequently Asked Questions

What are the shipping rates?

We offer free shipping on most items to metro areas in ACT, NSW, VIC, and QLD. If you are in a regional area we do offer great shipping rates, though it is often too expensive for us to offer free shipping. You can calculate shipping costs in the checkout and on item pages with your postcode.
Orders under $50 incur a minimum order fee to cover shipping.

Standard vs Express Shipping

Our shipping platform will automatically determine and display the Express or Standard shipping options that are available to you. If Express is not displaying, you're either located too far away from our store in Canberra, or the Standard shipping option will get it to you just as fast for the same price. Express shipping is 1-5 days, Standard 2-10 days depending on how far you are away from our store in Canberra.

What payment methods do you offer?

We offer secure checkout options like Visa, Mastercard, PayPal, Zip Pay and Bank Deposit.
American Express payments are also accepted, although most AmEx transactions will require manual authorization after payment (Someone from the team will contact you to confirm the transaction after checkout)

    The Schaffer Replica (TSR) "Classic" is our original pedal version of The Schaffer Replica "Gold Tag" Tower, predecessor to the perfected EX Tower. This companding boost is housed in a rugged enclosure that perfectly complements the vintage audio mojo inside.

    The TSR features much of 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.

    The 12vDC-15vDC powered TSR "Classic" pedal offers slightly stronger midrange than the 9vDC Storm, which some SoloDallas users have come to prefer. This rugged two knob unit is over-engineered to withstand the rigors of heavy gigging.

    FEATURES

    INPUT 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).
    OUTPUT knob controls a powerful pre-amp capable of delivering a whopping 30db 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 a clean amplifier or pushing it into oblivion!
    COMPANDER is based on a key feature in the original SVDS unit. Technically two effects, Ken Schaffer’s signature compander circuit features his version of the gold standard “soft knee” compression used by major studio engineers worldwide. This discreet analog compressor levels the output of each individual frequency then feeds them into a studio grade expander which restores amplitude and removes unnatural compression artifacts. Companding also tames transients while accentuating harmonics to produce the sonic richness associated with “The Schaffer Sound”.
