This is an extremely rare Uni-Vibe version called Vibra-Chorus made by Honey who were the precursors to Shin-Ei.
Actually its the other way around since Uni-Vibe was the name the US importer Univox put on this effect for the US market, but Vibra-Chorus was the original and first name of the pedal.
This particular version only seems to have been sold in Japan and Scandinavia and particulary Sweden for some reason.

So, it looks like a Uni-Vibe and it is a Uni-vibe inside as well, the only differences apart from the name is that there is no provision for an external speed pedal.
Instead there is a "Repeat time" control on the actual unit and there is a jack for an "Cancel" or On/Off switch.
The other difference is that there is only one input jack.
This is actually good since there is then no mixer resistors on the input which makes way for a straighter and clearer signal path from your guitar and no extra load on your guitar pickups.

I have owned a few of these over the years but always kept this one since it sounded the best.
Its the absolute greatest sounding Uni-Vibe pedal i have tried, both new and old, and i have owned most of them.
Its incredibly lush and deep sounding and nails the Jimi tone perfectly.
And it should not be confused with the later Shin-Ei Vibra Chorus which is a different circuit.

Condition is good with some scratches and it works perfectly.
The only thing missing is the two brackets at the bottom for the powercable.
Is set up to run at 230volts and dont believe it is possible to change this if you dont change the powertransformer.

Let me know if you have any further questions.
