        Along with the Synthi Hi-Fli one must also include the Ludwig Phase II.

        I have a gadget made by Guild around 1970 that has a floor foot-switch unit but the effect unit itself is table-top. It's the Guild Tri-Oct, the first polyphonic octave-divider. It came with a proprietary hexaphonic divided pickup that fed six independent octave dividers, all discrete (not an op-amp anywhere), which were mixed into a mono output along with clean signal and a mono fuzz. Tracking was terrible, largely, I suspect, because the pickup itself was about the size of a P90, which meant you couldn't stick it near the bridge, unless the guitar itself lacked a bridge pickup. Although I suspect that tracking at the time might have been acceptable given the more common use of heavy gauge flatwound strings.

        I like to consider it the missing link between fuzzboxes and early guitar synths.

          I encountered a couple Wurlitzer Sideman units. It was a drum machine you could use while playing organ. It was a large thing, and was in nice wood so you could use it as an end table.

          https://encyclotronic.com/drum-machi...-sideman-r110/

          It had a rotating contact arm sliding around a circuit board disc with contacts in it. As it swept, the contacts made to enable some sound. There was a white noise generator and a couple filters to yield snare drums, and a pulse circuit for kick drum and others. A motor drove the sweep arm at various speeds to adjust tempo. There were concentric rings of contacts, and they were arranged in patterns, so it could have a straight one-two or a tango or whatever.

                Airline "Echo"
                I saw this on Ebay recently, and as an afficionado of all things Valco I couldn't pass it up. It's a 1968 Airline Echo 62-9066 unit, and in nearly mint...

                          Vox Effects Unit

                          The Effects Unit below - a rare and unusual item - was sold on ebay.de in March 2011, current whereabouts unknown. Note the input sockets with ceramic white rings; the aluminium knobs, identical to the ones used in 7-series amps (though in relation to the PAs, numbered rather than "dotted"), and the outline legends.
                          During time, the Vox Effects Unit was designed in one module, and built into some Vox guitars (Ultrasonic, Starstream ...) that were produced for Vox in Italy by Eko. A decal "Made for Vox in Italy."

                            Sure, any style of pre-flanger flanging should be on the list.

                                The EBow , invented in1969 , wasn't issued until mid 70's , patented in1978. Remember seeing Johnny A use one at gearfest a few years back.
