Can anyone please give me any info on this effect please....I know it’s called Grandfathers coffin and was made by Roy Roth. It’s complete, has the instructions and is in fantastic condition. I have never been able to find anything on the web that mentions this effect so I’m guessing it’s quite rare. Thank you in advance

Way back in the 1970's when I was buying a lot of effects from England, I received Roy Roth's price list, it was never listed in his lists for products he made and sold.

If Roy Roth's son came on the Café after Roy died, he could not help with any inquires, and he has stopped answering any of my followup emails. So I guess, Roy Roth's products have hit a dead end. His son did not even sell any of the products that may have been left behind.

So everything is lost in time.

I have Roy Roth's Grandfathers coffin in my collection....I put this and a few other cool effects on video. My directions say this effect was purchased in 1977.

It's a shame he's only made
