The pictures and descriptions remind me a lot of the Ludwig Phase IV, which I did reverse.

more info gathered on the web about this company : some musicians use their power amps, so you could use one mono class a head (called the 800a in 1975) and this fuzz... thing (because the amp won't ever distort...) and you'll get a complete (& vintage) swiss-made rig!

oh by the way price tag for a brand new 111 mono head : 39 000 $, sweet !

some cool vintage pics (late 70 early 80's i'd say) on their official page:


Girl with in red stockings managing 2 Megas of spare parts 


swiss workbenches, empty clean.


another girl is "listening" to transistor noise through a pair of giant earphones...


same test bench but now a guy, this fellow proletarian is the "pot-tester", cool...


fish eye view of a girl mounting power transitors on radiators, wow hardcore.

(i know, i'm sick)
