VOX SOUND EQUIPMENT LIMITED - Sola Sound Wow Fuzz
late 1970 - 1971
Advert from "Beat Instrumental" magazine, February 1970, the small inset picture showing the form of the pedal - new at the time. The "Vox Sound Equipment Limited" version of the Sola Wow Fuzz is pictured below.
The pedal illustrated in the lower half of this page is the first iteration of three:
(1) branded Sola Sound, but with a label on the underside stating that "Vox Sound Equipment Limited" (VSEL) was the sole distributor. This pedal must have been made for a relatively short time as VSEL came to an end in early 1970.
(2) as immediately below, branded "VOX" and "VOX SOUND LTD. ERITH, ENGLAND" on the base. VSL moved from the Erith factory in the summer of 1971.
(3) as immediately below, branded "VOX" and stating "VOX SOUND LTD. Hastings, Sussex" on the back. The Hastings factory was certainly up and running in the autumn of 1971.
