First electronic drum machine

SUPER RARE Early Chamberlin Rhythmate. ALL TUBE from PHONOGRAPH VIDS on Vimeo.

This is an early model 35 with el84 tube amp, 12 inch speaker and 16 track tape loop. This IS the one! These were Chamberlin's first designs and the predecessor to the Melotron. This is a must for any Chamberlin, Melotron, Optigan collector or avid fan...

The Chamberlin Rhythmate has the distinction of being the first drum machine ever produced.
