nice one. it's the first time i see tubby in moving pictures (same as what 2 out of 3 people wrote in their comments on youtube..)
you can see he doesn't feel comfortable being filmed. i assume he was not much of a self-promoting type. that must be why video footage of him is so hard to find.

Yes it's true the natural modesty and virtuous humility of the man is obvious from the video, and is so refreshing to see. Tubby was no miser, Tubby was the dub compromiser. King Tubby, he made you wiser. Iyah

any idea what the blueish grey box is on top of the board? a large parametric? some slapback, reverb phaser combo? is that the box that makes the famous scientist snare echo? anyone? anyone?

It's one of the Scientist videos:

You can't miss the object.
I think it's having an effect on the reverb - either changing the eq on the reverb or the reverb length, but it's difficult to tell because he tweaks the desk just after he turns the knob.

given his history in audio electronics, it is quite likely it is an effect he built himself. it could be a notch filter or a delay unit..

i would say that the verb decay time is pretty constant. one of his signature noises is the snare thru a filter (notch type, or more simply, a phaser) into a reverb (spring in the early days, plates later) which is then repeated by a delay set to an 8th note. the box could be a unit he has built that does all three at the same time. trying to recreate that signature sound in different studios with different units could require the fabrication of such a device.
