Rusted. Battered. Missing some screws and knob caps.

And it does not give a F%£K.

Demo below…

These analogue drum synths are so gnarly, so vicious, so downright nuts that a few battle scars just make them more angry and more eager to melt your monitors.

Full working order. Only selling because we have another. So good.

All five voices have individual audio trigger in and out. All call be panned and the unit has stereo out and a mix out. This gives a lot of possibilities. See the photos for more information about the controls.

Condition is what it is. Oxidation in various places on the front panel. Knob caps missing. And the sequencer socket has dropped inside. But none of this affects the functioning.

240v unit.
