Finally got to the local jun...errr "Antique" store today and found this. It was on the floor, and I immediately recognized it as an effect 'stomp-box'. And the biggest I have ever seen. And the only one I've ever seen made of wood. Couldn't see anything but the "GILCO" label, but the fitting on top indicated to me, rightly as it turns out, that this a 'talk-box' device, like what Frampton used. I dunno if it works yet, no tube and no rig setup to try. If it doesn't work, is it something that can be repaired? And if so, is it worthwhile doing so? I did a quick Google and all I came up with was a listing on some effects-box website, but no specs. A few of the screws on top are loose/backed out a bit, but I don't think it's actually been opened; should I take a peek inside or reseat the screws and try it out? What IS inside? I imagine it's more mechanical than electronic? So, what ya got on this my friends?
