Vox Sound Limited (UK) 1970 Product Catalog - Page 10
The 1970 Vox catalog introduces the first version of the Vox Continental 300. The UK produced version of the Continental 300 shown in this catalog page was the updated version of the UK produced Continental II with percussion introduced in the 1969 Vox "Colossus incorporated" brochure. Within a year of introduction, an Italian (EME) produced Continental 300 replaced this UK model. The Italian Continental 300 has "steps" in the control panel, the UK model has a flat control panel.

The major changes that differentiate the Continental 300 from the earlier Continental II model were the addition of five present organ "tone tabs" (labeled "Vox," "Mood," "Club," "Church," and "Jazz") to the left of the drawbars, four "percussion tabs" (labeled 8', 4', II, and Delay) to the right of the drawbars, internal reverb, a gray, rather than an orange top, and the use of integrated circuits (ICs) in the octave divider circuitry on the Continental II tone generator cards. Forty years after the Continental was introduced in 1970, these IC chips have become all but unavailable for repairs of the Continental 300 and 301.
