1950’s Tube Drum Machine

The video demonstrates what a 1950’s vacuum tube drum machine sounds like.

The Wurlitzer SideMan was arguably the world’s first drum machine. (It depends on whether you count the Chamberlin Rhythmate, which was introduced some years earlier, but featured tape loops instead of electronically generated drum sounds.)

It still sounds pretty cool, don’t you think?
