Effectron and Intellifex

Effectron and Intellifex
Hi, I usually stick to the amp section, but I am having to move my shop and all sorts of forgotten things are popping up. Are such things as the Rocktron Intellifex and the old Delta Labs Effectron III (ADM1030) the kind of thing you guys care about, or are we pretty much just pedals over here?

I think there is certainly interest in such things, but whenever digital cores enter into the picture, obviously the DIY element recedes into the background and the troubleshooting side starts to become the province of fewer people. Still, there ARE analogish things to do with them.
Book Of The Day The Ultimate Tone, Volume III by Kevin O'Connor
Have you ever wondered if there is a better way to build a Bassman, Champ, Plexi, an 800, AC-30, Bulldog or Portaflex? Or you wanted to build an SVT with off-the-shelf parts? How about a master-volume amp that doesn’t change tone with the master setting? Everything you need to know is right here, including: proper grounding techniques, wiring methods, and mechanical considerations. Eighteen chapters cover the “iconic” amps everyone knows and loves, with schematics and layouts for each, along with the technical history of the product. Eyelet-board and chassis-mounted tube socket construction is used throughout, for easy servicing and modding. TUT3 is very accessible even if you cannot fully read a schematic and is a "must have" if you are going to build an amp for your self.

Thanks, Mark. The Intellifex just needs an LSI socket, but the Effectrons are definitely on that troubleshooting side of the fence.
