"Circa late 60s or early 70s and made in Japan. This circuit is apparently the same as the earliest version of the Univox "Super Fuzz". The controls and jacks are not labeled but there are two knobs: 'balance' (volume) and 'expander' (fuzz amount), a two-position 'tone' switch for treble or bass, an on/off foot switch on top and one each 1/4" input and output jacks. Original textured black paint and runs on one 9V battery which is accessed by removing the base plate held on by four screws."

"This is one serious fuzz/distortion pedal, perfect for the gritty snarling sounds of the late 60s and early 70s to the grunge era, complete with some harmonic overtones. This also works well on bass guitar for recreating classic 'fuzz bass' tones." 

I own an Apollo (yet another branding of the Shin-ei circuit) version, which I paid too much for but love the sound.
