Hi there DD10 fans,I bought mine new from Tanday in a sale for £40 about 1990.Okay it don't sound too good but it does have its uses,we used to use it to keep tempo during rehersals etc when the drummer could'nt or would'nt make it.You can make this thing sound a lot better if you put it through your PA with a touch of reverb/DD and EQ. For the CIRCUIT BOARD DABBLERS,I modified mine like so.If you go poking around on the board you will find the points that switch start/stop/fills 1 & 2,wire these points to a din socket on the back.I then wired up 4 momentry switches onto a sloped top box,all from Maplin and connected the two with screened multicore cable and din plugs.You can now start and stop mid song and stick the fils in where you like as the foot switches give you hands free cont,used it down the pub a couple of times as a duo.Great eh.As tis little box helped me out in so many ways I will give it FIVE jamesjwilson@aol.com

Well I to picked mine up cheap at a bootsale £5.00 in my case. Sadly the pedals are missing but never-mind. I have been feeding it through my Korg Mx's effects and filters and its makes soem really half decent sounds. I would no recommend spending a lot of cash on one, but its far from useless. It also makes a pretty good device for practicing and keeping time with. I'm not selling mine either and I am glad I have it. Of course the sounds a pretty basic and some of the settings are useless but all in it its a nice thing to own and it has found it way onto a couple of demonstartion tracks.

I Got Mine at a bootsale and paid 4 quid. I think it's very user frendly for all those none drummers out there, also it's a very creative beat maker for it's time. I've had it going through an old reverb unit with a little compression to make some very interesting arrangements for an eighties retro drum programmer.(Downside very limited Step programing).

Well, most people seem to hate this, but I think it's a great little machine. My uncle found this on a tip and gave it to me with the pedals and everything. Like many people, I wouldn't like to pay too much for this, but the two 2-bar user-programmable patterns are fun to play with, especially with the lo-fi sounds, enabling synth-punk, IDM and glitch joy immediately. I'm interested in circuit bending mine for tweakable sounds. If you have any bends, please email futureimage@hotmail.co.uk
