SYNSONIC DRUMS by MATTEL
Yes you read it right MATTEL (the toy makers)
I first had a chance to play with this way way back in 1981, at that time id already began programming music and did’nt really enjoy it that much back then .After deciding that i wanted to get back to my early electronic music roots i rediscovered this true gem .It has a great bass drum and snare sound ,plus an amazing hihat feel, really easy to use (although the lack of separate output make it hard to use in professional production) the tom sound can be tuned down low like a super fat TR909 & the builtin click can double as a nice 4onda floor drum too . The are also some great MODs online which will take this small affordable machine into another dimension. I am looking out for a *Pro Model* with internal pattern memory before i Customize 1 , & there is also a model with a speaker too .They also made a lesser known *BEEGEE’S Drum Machine/Synth* use by kraftwerk on the song POCKET CALCULATOR .
ITS CHEAP / FUN /& SOUNDS SOUNDS GREAT .
