Here's a Univox Uni-tron 5, which is really a Musitronics Mu-Tron III in disguise. The Mu-Tron III is one of the few effects circuits that's even been patented. Even though those wily Japanese engineers could probably clone it, the manufacturers they worked for couldn't legally sell it. So Univox did the next best thing and licensed the design from Mike Beigel and company (hooray for the good guys!).
You can see from the footswitch that this Uni-tron 5 was built by the most famous-est of Japanese manufacturers, Shin-ei. And it uses toggle switches, rather than rocker switches like the Mu-Tron. But the sound is unmistakeably identifiable, 100% Mu-Tron III. The Uni-tron 5 is a bit more collectible than it's American counterpart, since there seems to be fewer of them around. Or perhaps it just looks more badass in black. This one has some scuffs and scratches, but it's still in pretty good condition. And the sound is dead-on Mu-Tron!
