“Up for auction here is your opportunity to purchase a very rare 1970s Drum pad synthesizer.
The unit is in full working order. All switches work perfectly and all control operate smoothly without any scratching at all.

This drum synth is powered by two 9V PP3 batteries (not supplied).

The synth as shown in the photos is in ‘used’ condition, and has wear on the base and on the sides.
It also has a pit in the centre of the foam of the pad, although this doesn’t affect it’s operation.
There appears to be two small missing rubber feet on the base.” Link
