Original Curly Tail found on factory roof

Dunk scratches his head and dreams of cranking up the Curly Tail at Woodstock!

One of our original experimental fun products was a little practice amplifier that we named the Curly Tail, because it squealed like a pig! It featured a guitar jack input, level control and revolutionary 'More' or 'Less' Tone control!
Thanks to a slip-up with the Letraset, it also featured a 'HEADPONE' jack!

Its germanium power transistor gave it a thick chainsaw type distortion, and its tartan front grille cloth would surely have made it a huge success in Scotland! There's no truth to the rumour that the grille cloth came from a pair of trousers left behind from the 1976 Bay City Rollers Australian tour!
