    Fellas, if somebody can share some knowledge about this...
    In 1977 I bought a sound effect somewhere in LA, called the Hawk III. It was not a foot pedal. You had to strap it to your waist belt. It required two 9 volt batteries and had 3 switches and 2 slide knobs. It gave me a sound like Chris Squire in "Yours is no disgrace" when I played thru my Ampeg B15 with 2 nice and big cabinets. Somebody borrowed it and stepped on it and broke it:crying:. I could never find another one, guess the company that made it is lost in the mist of times. I have never sounded like that again. Somebody know anything about it? Thanks in advance.

    Looks to me like an early take on the idea of an onboard preamp.

    Cool.

    This is the Hawk III, which I owned back in 1976 and some idiot broke and totally ruined it for me. Guess I was the bigger idiot since I let him use it. I have been looking for it ever since and me and my girlfriend Deima ESalas finally found it. It's the best bass effect I have ever owned. I've never had anything like it. Now that I found it, I only need to find the $400 to get me a new one.
