    Bought a horn locally from CL.... (a 1972-73ish Elkhart Bach 37 SN# 78xxx) It needs the two stop rod nuts and a 1st slide saddle (silver). PM me if you have these parts and willing to part with them!

    This one had some extra goodies was a surprise for sure... and after looking at the eBay prices a GOOD one too!

    Item #1: A (probably not Ratzenberger) Vintage Jet-Tone Custom Model Mouthpiece (DS) (Too deep to be Dave Stahl... maybe Doc Severinsen!?)
    Item #2: A Bach 7C (normal 70's version.. corp. small letters)
    Item #3: ANOTHER Bach 7C (same as other one)... but with a microphone pickup on the shank that goes with item #4
    Item #4: A 1968 King VOX Octavoice-II Effects device. takes input from mic (see above) and outputs to an amp one or two octaves lower. Includes the mic pickup that attaches to the mpc!
    Item #5: A brand new Wick Adjustable cup mute

    Anyone ever used one of these crazy Octavoice things? I don't have anything to test it with (an amp), or the cable to connect it to the amp.

    Cool man! You didn't know you were getting the extras? Sorry I've no experience with the electronics to shed any insight. I guess you're going to plug it into your home stereo

    What you need is a pickup that bumps it UP an octave or two...:lol:

    I don't like bursting bubbles as a general rule, but I don't think that's a ratzenburger era jettone. The T's in jeTTone are not connected on the top, and the lower edge seems a bit rounded. Also, I'm not sure so don't quote me on this but I believe all of the pieces from that era had rim sizes- I have a DS c custom, the c denoting the rim shape and size.

    Maybe YOU need that.... but I don't! LOL

    It would have sold alot better that way though! Imagine an electronic lead player effect! Sell a million of them!

    You may be right... I thought all old JT's were Ratzenberger era ones. I bit to learn a bit more about Jet Tone history!

    Fear not, that's a Ratzenberger JET-TONE. DS is Doc's and SS is Stahl. I've seen plenty of "mistakes" on Ratzenberger era mpcs. Crooked letters/numbers, faint stamping on mpc sizes, even designations that no one knows what they are. If it's comfy, go for it. That's the same way I came to own my JET-TONE. Everything you found in that case SCREAMS, "It's the 70's man"!! If you had an "Echoplex" to go with the "Octavoice"..... :cool:

    On second thought and a closer look, I think you're right. The new ones are different. My bad! Hope you enjoy that piece- I absolutely love mine.
