Effects, Echo Units and Mixers

The Effects Unit below - a rare and unusual item - was sold on ebay.de in March 2011, current whereabouts unknown. Note the input sockets with ceramic white rings; the aluminium knobs, identical to the ones used in 7-series amps (though in relation to the PAs, numbered rather than "dotted"), and the outline legends.

Preamp mixer

The same sort of styling - perhaps more in line though with the large Vox effects amplifiers - is also to be found in Vox transistorised preamp units, such as the ones below (sold on ebay), in Impedance Matchers and the like, all of which stayed long in production after the valve amps had gone.
