I have a three-channel Dove dissolve unit. I used it for the closing
show at a small Jamboree, and have hardly used it since. (I also have a
4-track cassette deck to allow for stereo music, clock and cue.
I would be willing to loan these to Scouters for COHs or ECOHs. Your
group/unit/CO would have to pay freight both ways and guarantee
repair/replacement of any damages. If interested, contact me directly.
