Rare stereo 60s beat box from the Korg before they were called Korg. Extremely cool – the ability to dial in different amounts of each side of the stereo rhythm gives another layer to how you can vary the sound. The sounds and rhythms seem quite different to other early Korg drum machines.

We’re only selling this because we have another – definitely essential studio kit for us. Has two sets of variations – the amusingly-titled “Young Beat” and Fox-Swing – that allow plenty of rhythms to be created with combined button presses. Add in the great early analogue drum machine sounds, the alternating lights on the top, and the stereo patterns and this is a great piece of vintage gear.

Demo coming…

Serviced and working well.

In excellent cosmetic condition. There are a few minor scuffs on the unit, mainly on the woodwork. See detailed photos for more info on cosmetic condition.

  • Uses a standard IEC/”kettle” lead.
  • 100v Japanese model – it will run fine on North American mains 115/120v without a transformer (we run all our tests using 120v power); however, a step-down transformer is recommended for extended use.
  • A step-down transformer is required in the UK/EU. 
  • We do not recommend using cheap generic Chinese mains transformers and can supply a high quality UK-made unit if required. 

For sales in UK/EU the price will include VAT. VAT-free sales are possible to businesses and individuals in the EU (outside the UK) with a valid VAT Number – please get in touch if you wish to buy this way.
