Vox Percussion King Model V829 for sale in superb condition and working order, complete with both original footswitches. it even has the original tag on the handle that says "A Thomas Product - VOX For Precision In Sound".

Made between 1966 and 1968 in the USA by the Thomas Organ Company (Sepulveda, Califoronia) under license from Jennings Musical Industries Ltd.

No samples here! All the sounds are synthesized from analogue circuitry - doesn't make for realistic percussion sounds, but that's not what you came here for, right?

Excellent - pretty exceptional given the age of this unit. The "S" is missing from the "SOLID STATE" badge on the front. Apart from that it has only minor signs of age - some oxidation on metal parts and some very light wear to the tolex.
