VOX SOUND LIMITED - Wow Fuzz pedal made in Erith
Another page in progress on the Vox wahs, this one on the Wow Fuzz, a Sola Sound design first marketed in February 1970, combining wah and fuzz.
Advert from "Beat Instrumental" magazine, February 1970, the small inset picture showing the form of the pedal - new at the time. The "Vox Sound Limited" version of the Sola Wow Fuzz is pictured below.
Effectively there were three Vox iterations of this pedal:
(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) the pedal pictured in the lower half of this page - branded "VOX" and "VOX SOUND LTD. ERITH, ENGLAND" on the base. VSL moved from the Erith factory in the summer of 1971.
(3) the pedal 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.
