View Full Version : Ever have one of these?
Found the pic online.
This was the first effect I ever bought. Probably 1979 or so? It was a PITA because you had to flick the switch on the box which stuck out of your amp. I remember it sticking out of my crappy little SS amp that I learned on.

I think the newer LPB-1 in the nano-sized box is a stomp-box version of this.

First pedal I ever purchased as well. It was my introduction to distortion...

Yep, I remember blowing up a friend's homemade little amp with one of these. Sad thing was, it was sounding so damn good right up till when it blew!

I just built one of those and put it in a strat - sounds awesome

I had one of those, right around 1979. Melted my silver face champ. Fender actually repaired the amp under warranty, & told me just because the knobs go to 10, it doesn't mean you should leave them there. I was 13 or 14 at the time, it sounded great to me, but it was my first introduction to an overdriven amp.
