Only one: a Schaffer-Vega Diversity
what type of effect is this?
It's a wireless system he used - google it
The Schaffer-Vega Diversity System (“SVDS”) was the first cordless guitar and microphone system to be adopted by major rock acts. The freedom of movement wireless provided paved the way for arena-sized bands to tour with large multi-level stages. Schaffer-Vegas were employed by major rock bands, including The Rolling Stones, Fleetwood Mac, AC/DC, Pink Floyd, Kiss, The Grateful Dead, Peter Frampton, Aerosmith, Earth, Wind & Fire, Black Sabbath and Van Halen.
The Schaffer-Vega wireless guitar system was introduced by The Ken Schaffer Group, Inc. of New York in June 1976. A handheld microphone version was introduced in 1977. What made the Schaffer-Vega system unique was its approach to solving each of the problems common to previous wireless systems and which limited their use in professional staging and production.
still no real effect,this proves simple setup,great fingers..love it
He boosted his signal on his wireless unit.
The SVDS - in terms of audible, resulting effects - consists of a compressor and a clean boost.
Both make a strong effect and influence on the sound.
I have several units now - my pride really, I became friends with the inventor himself, Mr. Ken Schaffer - and these are quite effective.
Some examples in these videos of me with one original unit:

Should you be interested in this,
we are building a replica - an exact replica audio wise but NOT wireless; just a stompbox - will be ready in a few months. We reverse engineered the whole system and drawn the schematics.
A Prototype - the first one - has been made
The Schaffer-Vega Diversity Replica (Updated)
Heelll yah man! I love your faces lol, I'm pretty sure I seen you on the MLPF! Good stuff my man!
Yep I'm on the MLP too
Fuck man, I think you are making me an ac/dc fan... hell ya...
Man, Angus hardly knew which amp he was plugged into. For real.
What do you mean, I don't know much about the band, so I'm just wondering...
Yep, for real. He means to say that Angus was never a technology/gear kind of guy.
He barely knew the model name, same goes for the rest of his gear. Un-aware.
And un-interested. He only cared about the playing.
Man, that's kinda cool actually!
Well, shit costs so much these days that you gotta know wtf you're playing lol
Have you ever met Angus Solo?
I'm sure he would be very impressed!!
I still dont know how he used to play solos laying on his side kicking his legs spinning around on the ground the guy is amazing
Never ever met him.
I am being told he knows about me. They (AC/DC) know me.
Mr. Rick St. Pierre (AC/DC amp tech) knows me well
Mr. Tony Platt (AC/DC sound engineer for a while) knows me to some extent, we also met recently in London.
I never tried to get in touch with them. Never ever but recently, and recent contact has been with record label only, trying to pay for the copyrights of the video I am making recently.
Would love to strike a deal with them, where I PAY for the videos I make.
Well, I hope you are gigging where people PAY to see YOU playing covers!
Oh thank you
Yes, I am gigging with professionals (finally). Great people, simple people that do this for life.
Drums and bass guys are from a well known Italian band. "Older" folks, in their 50s. Love 'em
