BBC Radiophonic Workshop portable effects unit


The PEU/1 was another piece of wartime kit originally designed for the test engineer on the move, which would have had a lid and shoulder strap.

Re-purposed by the Radiophonic Workshop for creative sound sculpture, it offered basic equalisation with a passive inductive high and low pass filter.
