Halifax Rotary Sound? Anyone?

Some like 'em and some don't, but I bet everyone has at least a couple — Analog Delay, Digital Delay, Reverb, Chorus, Flanger, Phaser, Tube Overdrive, Transistor Overdrive, Fuzz, Octave Fuzz, Tremolo, Vibrato, Compressor and the list goes on!

Halifax Rotary Sound? Anyone?

Picked this up today 'cause it was cheap and sounds sick...
Kinda like a Maggie gone wrong...

I think it was a German company, but there's not a lot of info out there about this box...

The foot pedal is too cool...

Love any info if anyone knows anything...
Thanks!!

Awesome looking thing, but Halifax seems like an odd name for a German company! Named after the city or the bomber?

Looks like a rebranded Schaller Rotor Sound. Allegedly there is also a Holden Rotor Sound.

Here is my thread from a while back
