Hi,
I'm just a dub newbie and saw a concert of LSP + Mad Professor and Zion Train.

Now, this Zion Train guy had a little metallic box on top of his set (with three knobs or so) and it generated something like a test tone and when he turned the knobs the frequency changed.

If you want to hear an example go to http://www.infinitewheel.com/dubselector.html.
Choose dub selector #1, then it is the hexapad bottom right (here it is called "Wizz FX")

Does anybody know how this box is called, or where I can buy one ? Or a scheme so I can make one myself, ... ?

I think what you are looking for is a dub siren.
Check the threads about sirens we already had here
in the dub production folder. Hope this helps..

If not:
The sound that can be heard at your link should be
no problem to generate with any halfway decent
synthesizer (route an LFO to pitch)

It might be the infamous KAOS effects pad/unit that is taking the new skool Dub soundsystems by storm:

Sirens. Once upon a time a closely guarded secret. My bred's siren had all the components iD scrathched off. I built my one.from a maplin kojac kit and built trigger and kill toggle and pulse switches and its nifty box.
Also use Electrix filter factory. self oscillating filter.
give thanks, dj excavator and the conkerin kitten studio. (first light sound uk).
