I remember reading about this. It's an interesting idea, but only a few years needed to pass before that sound was basically available through a pedal.


it's like the grandaddy of the Magical Musical Thing. wish i still had mine. much like the orguitar, it was more fun to piddle with than accomplish anything..

A friend of mine had something similar to this contraption- although the sounds produced were more of the moog/synth variety. It was a ramshackle behemoth, almost looked homemade. It was great.


love the 1st guitar guy's technique, early edward van rhodes. that Vox is huge & thick, is the headstock hollow? i've got questions, alas, not a panelist


For those interested, I have one of those.

Nice to see Dick Denney appear about halfway through this, I don't think I've ever seen this mad genius before!


Fantastic ! A piece of history from the uk. I have an original Vox Phantom the same shape, but less controls !! Lovejoy

I want one, and am getting nothing back from einar1979...let me know if you have one at [email protected], I don't know what I'm looking at price-wise, but love the idea even if it's not practical. I'd love to own one of these, even if it's no longer functional...look forward to hearing from someone, thanks!

Michael Drake

A great piece, I have never seen this played properly, yet I have one hanging on my office wall as a mark of respect to the sheer inventiveness of that era.
