Can anyone ID this Harrison mic pre?

Hi guys, I have a Harrison mic pre that came from Twickenham soundstage studios here in London. It has no identifying features or model numbers on it - I would dearly love to know a little more about it.
I am happy to break it open and show you the insides if it helps...
Apologies for my ignorance - I'm just a musician.
Can anyone help? Thanks

We made those micreamp units for many years starting with the SeriesTen console in 85' and on up through the late 90's. It has been a long while since we built any of them so seeing as they are in the UK I would estimate their age at 20-30 years probably having come out of an S10 console from the mid 80's to early mid 90's.

I don't remember seeing those in my time (92-98) at TFS.

Thanks for your help, guys.
By strange co-incidence I am flying to Nashville tomorrow for 2 months!
I was there in May this year too, and was kindly given a private tour of Blackbird studios by rentals department manager, Mike Simmons.

In my home studio I use a UAD Apollo interface, and I am happy enough with the results, but I am looking forward to trying the Harrison out...
Thanks again.
