Re: The JSH Fuzz, question. (LONG)

Preben Hansen Re: The JSH Fuzz, question. (LONG)
OK, now that is clear, and it explains why my first VOX wah, a complete grey version, on the bottomplate stated:  
Jennings Musical Industries, Made in italy. This wah i bought around late 67 or early 68, it was the first effect i bought !  
In the early 68, i bought my second effect, a VOX ToneBender MK II Professional, and this was handmade for sure.(I was build on veroboard, and had 3 Mullard OC81D transistors in it, alas i dont have it anymore). This Tone Bender must have been made by Sola-Sound for VOX.  
But this again releases some new questions:  
Was it so, that SolaSound made Fuzz'es and JEN Wah's for VOX, or did JEN take over AFTER SolaSound ?  
Could i be so, that BESPECO "took over" after JEN ? They are both Italian, and made/makes wah's ?  
Regards Preben.

They have one of these, Brand New (NOS) at New Kings Road Guitars in London. This one is labeled as a JEN Tone Bender!  
It is exactly as you describe.

Thank's for the info.  
This indicates that some of these Tone Benders is still lying around in some music stores. What is the price for this NOS effect ?
