Wanted: old brochures, catalogs,...

I asked a few shops around here, but they all seem to clean up their papers regularly (good for them, not for me ;)).

I'm searching all kinds of documentation about guitar effect pedals:

  • brochures, catalogs, flyers,...
  • old magazine ads
  • manuals
  • schematics & service manuals
  • ...

As I'm mostly interested in the content, scans or readable pictures are sufficient if you want to keep the papers.

If you have something, please let me know through the contact form.
