Metasonix D-1000 Vacuum Tube Drum Machine
Metasonix describes the D-1000 as "the first drum machine made with vacuum tubes since the Wurlitzer Sideman of 1959."
Unlike the Sideman, it's a "modern" primitive device-with plenty of inputs, outputs, and flexibility, the company says.
It has only four drum sounds -- two tunable drums, a tunable "snare" drum (harder sounding than the others), and a cymbal -- control, but Metasonix says voltage inputs give it "great flexibility" anyway.
- Inputs and outputs 1/8" jacks, except main mix output on 1/4" jack
- Enclosed in rugged, moisture-resistant ABS utility box with hinged lid, carrying handle and latch
- Size with lid closed 12.25"x7.4"x6.5" (314mmx186mmx168mm), weight (minus AC adapter) approx 3 lbs (2.1 kg)
- Power: 12-16 volts AC, 50/60 Hz, 1.5 amps
- Uses Jameco 167151 AC adapter for power in 120v countries
- Power inlet: 2.1mm coaxial jack
