Not that I am about to make a bid, but maybe someone has one and can give a technical appraisal on
functions, sounds etc for this model, and just out of interest on the topic.
Seem to recall The Spotnicks or similar 60s Euro instro bands used them for a time?

I had at least three of these over the years and as good as they are, it's impossible to get the correct echo patterns of the early Shadows tunes, due to the way the heads work. You can get a good general echo that fits all and the tone circuit is to die for. I sold a minter about twelve years ago simply because I knew it was a waste of time trying to get those Meazzi head patterns. I bought the ESE Echomatic and never looked back. A couple of years ago I bought it's cousin, the Klemt Echolette, which does come closer to those patterns than the Dynacord and has that magical tone circuit too, but do I use it ? No. :)

If my interpretation of the photos is correct, it only has three heads.

The head arrangement is unusual in that it has three record heads and two playback heads with two tape speeds available.

I had one mid 60’s. No good for guitar, but surprisingly good on vocals.
