Aaaaargh :mad:

I buy a lot from this seller and had to ship the last ad alone (this week) because he didn't have any other effect ads :(

I hope you'll make good scans because there's a lot of unknown gear in it, I wonder if that purple thing is the Supa-Reverb:

Here is a ca. 1978 leaflet that is a little more interesting.
It has several mockup pedals that never made it to production, not even prototypes in some cases.
Have a close look at the "Wah Wah and VCF" pedal, someone has just put the words "VCF" after "Wah Wah" on the frontpanel of the yellow pedal, quite crude!
I have heard about one VCF pedal though but never seen any real proof.
It would be the same pedal as a Chuck-a-wah but in a wider case.

Wow, I never saw any of the pedals of the entire top row!

I saw the VCF before in ads (and I knew it was purple while I only had a B&W pic on my site, I probably had a color ad once...), but not the others...

While we're talking about the VCF, did anyone ever see any Gemco pedals? I already asked a few times but never received any answer :)
They're probably made by Colorsound, have the same housing as the AMP pedals and they also had a VCF:

(from a German brochure that also had Rands and Allsound pedals).

Yeah, didn´t I tell you that I have every Colorsound catalog made??
I also think I told you not to spend any money anywhere else than with me :lol:

If you do a special Colorsound section I could probably upload them all there.
I am working on my own Colorsound ad page though.

Even though your intentions are good here I think we need to work a little on the format.
I do not think you should be able to post anything else than paperwork, otherwise this will be just a new forum with endless discussions and the whole thing gets clogged up.
So I am basically telling myself to shut up here !!
