For me there’s no better place in the band than to have one leg in the harmony world and the other in the percussive. Thank you Paul Tutmarc and Leo Fender.

That was a very interesting read!
Thanx for sharing.


My goal this weekend is to move just enough each day so that no one pokes me to see if I'm dead or not.

I found it interesting too; in particular this quote.

"Arguably, it took many artists quite some time to appreciate what these basic drum boxes could bring to the creative and artistic tables. Bands such as Blondie and Culture Club embraced the CR-78, as did Phil Collins, who used the CR-78 alongside an eerie reverb, on In The Air Tonight, before the infamous and thundering drum fill explodes into view."

I never would have thought Phil Collins would have a need for such a machine; even for the intro; he's a phenomenal drummer . . . sings pretty good too smile

I was surprised at that also.

I knew a band back in the late 60's that used a drum machine in place of a drummer. I remember my friend, the band's lead guitarist, saying neither the band or their audience objected to it. I found that strange because the band was limited to just the steady beat without a real drummers nuances and I thought those early drum machines really sucked! YMMV. But they were happy so that's all that really mattered.

I agree that some of the early models were fairly bland, and very artificial sounding. They may have improved later on. I only ever listened to the early machines and decided then that there wasn't much they could offer.

For those that want a compact machine, this one has served me well.
It's especially good for those playing live because it's foot operated.

I used to have a SR-95 Univox like this one

[Linked Image from rvb-img.reverb.com]

I was in a trio, mostly doing dinner sets at yacht/country clubs, and it was our drummer. It was mediocre at best, but in dinner sets in the 1970s, it didn't need to be better.

I never should have gotten rid of it. Look at the price they are asking for on Reverb!!!

That proves my theory – never throw anything out – but sadly, I don't always follow my own advice.

One could argue that fairground organs incorporated the first drum machines in that they had assorted percussion instruments controlled by pins on a barrel, like a musical box, or punched paper rolls. They date from the 1830s. Hand cranked street organs were similar and dated from even earlier, though whether they incorporated any drums, I couldn't say. I suspect not, but...

I guess a carillon might just count, too, particularly as some did have drums as well as bells. I doubt many/any early examples (15 century) were particularly programmable, which feels to me like a prerequisite for being a "drum machine".
