    What is the Schaffer-Vega Diversity:

    From Wikipedia Schaffer-Vega Diversity System - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

    We are building a Replica of it. With kind involvement of Mr. Ken Schaffer in person (YES!).

    Won't be wireless. AUDIO CIRCUITRY ONLY (for the SOUND).

    Hear some here (skip to circa minute 3:06)

    Love & Happiness,

    Fil :)

    I hope it all goes well Fil. I like how they boost the signal and retain the quality of the guitar/amp sound.

    Keep us posted.

    Peace

    Thanks bro :D

    It actually not only retains all of it, but it "adds" good stuff to it, thanks to the built in compressor and clean boost.
    Using it on different amps will make different sounds, but still with the bold characteristic of adding "balls" to the sound, clean or driven.

    This is really why I love these units and why I decided to go on and replicate them.

    It's all I even wanted and can't imagine someone not wanting one, but really :dude:

    This is really cool. It could be one of the worlds most universal pedals, everyone should have one.

    Are they going to be available in the UK ?
    I'm not one for pedals generally, but this is one I would consider.

    Thanks mate. It will be available worldwide.

    I never used pedals, always straight into the amp since I started.
    But uncovering this unit changed my life. Not only my guitar playing life, but even my personal life, becoming friends with - for example - Mr. Ken Schaffer in person, who is one of the coolest individuals ever.
    He's been friends of Jimi Hendrix, John Lennon and the like (yes, even Angus Young).
