Little Drum Machine

Don't be fooled by this little toy drum, it is capable of some amazing sounds, sometimes sounding like a broken Commodore 64! Audio here.

Voice changing megaphone mk2

A different type of voice changing megaphone, this has 5 switches to choose the 'mode' and I have added a pitch control and an audio output. Listen here.

Bass Fuzz

Bass Fuzz with slightly different layout - the main control is at the front.

Chinese drum machine.

Another drum machine with downwards pitch bending to create drones. Audio here.

Voice changing megaphone

Been meaning to do one of these for a while now. Voice changer with 3 settings and added pitch control for instant vocoding/ring modulation. There are also a ton of l.e.ds built in making this a great device for onstage. Audio here.
Sold to Paul from Malvern.

Chinese keyboard/guitar

Bit weird this one! A kind of keyboard/guitar hybrid. Pitch up and down controls mess up the audio completely. Check out the 'whammy bar' (near the output) and fretboard above the keys! Listen here.

Bent Chad Valley Learning Keyboard

I have done a few of these in the past, this version is particularly good because of the 'decimate' control. Audio here.
Sold to Pascal from Paris.

Bontempi Drum Machine

In 3 years of looking out for obscure drum machines to bend, this is the first one of these I have seen. The 2 controls I have added are Pitch and Drive and can send the drum machine into self oscillating hell! The drum pads use some kind of piezo so can be played 'properly' with sticks. Turn down your speakers and listen to it here.
