Will you please change my order from one to two units.
I am in the process of planning changes to my pedalboards. So, if you have got as far deciding on the expected size of the units that information would be helpful. Won’t hold you to it if you can give approximate expected dimensions.
Another helpful piece of information would be to know where in the effects chain the unit was found to be best placed, based on your experience in Hungary.

Hi Mick, Thank you. I have changed my note that you want 2 units. The casing size will be approximately 15cm X 10cm, this is based on the circuit board size which I have here. The pedal would usually go last in the signal chain, just before the guitar amp, or mixing board line in, or computer line in. Regards, Charlie

Hi Mick, There were other pedals on Gabor's board but none were in use. Only his H & C unit and the new prototype unit. The 1960 amp circuit (known as circuit 3) already has the brilliance setting so a further unit to cut bass is not needed. The H & C cuts bass below around 100Hz like a Meazzi Echomatic 2. This alone doesn't remove enough bass for the sound we typically want for Shadows sounds. The new unit removes the right amount in conjunction with the H & C for those sounds. Regards, Charlie
Hi Mick, I believe the flattest response (which is the aim for the purpose of using the preamp) with a top boost channel is with the bass control all or almost all the way off, and the treble control all the way off. I don't think it will be as flat as a Vox normal channel would be, though in practise you will be able to further fine tune the tone with the tone control on the preamp. Regards, Charlie
Hi Peter, The EF86 is a valve that was used in early Vox amp designs from 1959 and 1960. The EF86 is a pentode high gain valve that has a somewhat different harmonic structure than the usual triode valves like 12AX7/ECC83 etc. This in conjunction with the amp designs at the time gave a sound that is difficult to replicate on newer amps, even Vox ones. My EF86 project is an amp emulator that includes the sound of the 1959 AC15 EF86 channel and the 1960 AC15/AC30 EF86 channel. It also includes a power amp emulator that can give the overdriven sound and compression sound of a Vox power amp being driven hard, at any desired output volume level. It also includes a speaker emulation circuit that can be switched in or out. It sounds very good when connected between the echo unit and the normal channel of a Vox amp. The unit would be very useful if your Vox amp does not have an EF86 channel. The only modern Vox amps that had the EF86 as far as I know were the first versions of the AC15/AC30 HW. They are no longer produced. Regards, Charlie
Hi Peter, Thank you, I have added you to my list. The unit is suitable to use with your amp. I forgot to mention that my design uses no valves, instead it emulates the sound of them quite accurately. Regards, Charlie
Hi Rob it’s only one page and half of the page is a photo of hank You may be able to get the pdf from charlie, What do you think about the article charlie. I’ve just taken delivery of a G2.1NU with EFTP on and the cd and paperwork serial No 014713 if you need to update anything charlie, Mick
