    The first one is an older mutron, with external power supply or batteries. The second one is newer (late 70s IIRC), and can be powered with cord as you see.

    AFAIK, no internal differences other than that.

    If you buy the first, you can buy a replacement PSU from - he recently did a true bypass mod, calibration and put in a power indicator LED to mine. Did a very nice job too.
