Ross Phaser notes(for those who care!)

kluson guy Ross Phaser notes(for those who care!)
I just picked up a Taiwanese Ross Phaser in the hopes that it might provide me with a reference to debugging my dead USA orange Ross Phaser.  
Its a totally different circuit!  
Orange Ross, has a 4 transistors (2SC842 & 2SC37)and four RC4558's  
Black Taiwanese circuit is IC based. 1 RC4558 and 3 LM13600N's  
Just thought I'd throw this out.

Thanks for the infro it might come in useful.  
This appears to be a different circuit to the original Ross phaser, it didn't use LM13600N's.

Can you take pictures or scan both sides of the board?  
It is an OTA based phaser, like the small stone. I can imagine this one sounding very good.

I have the US Ross Dist/Phaser. The Phaser portion has three LM13600 and one 4558.

With 3 dual OTAs, it will have 6 stages. That's certainly not a night and day difference from a 4-stager, but my DOD FX20 Phaser has a similar configuration (three 13600's) and it sounds quite pleasant.

Could one of the OTAs in the Ross phaser be used for a voltage-controlled VCO? Or is it pretty obvious that all three of the dual OTAs are used for phase shifting stages?

It is likely that one of the OTAs is the LFO, and probably the dual opamp is an input buffer/output mixer/buffer.  
I'd really like to see this LM13600 based phaser schem.
