I should get a better picture of the graphic, it is cool. This was one of 
the last of these pedals that Morley built, and I think the design was 
originally a Tel-Ray. This one I have was probably made around 1976-77.

Oh, it'll self-oscillate all right. Massive pounding oscillation. I have 
to be careful with the expression pedal on that effect because of it.

No, I'm afraid I don't. I do have a couple of proof of concept looping 
pieces I did the week before that show with the same gear.

Contact mic, Buick transmission parts, Pentium III heat sink, electric 
toothbrush (I wanted a drone I could morph into a bassline). Oh, and one 
3-second sample of another item that isn't from any of the above, about a 
minute before the end. Sorry about that.

I still have the heatsinks in question, too.
