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.

I've just bought one of these from my local Barnados for a fiver! I'm a sound-designer in an artmusic collective called Patchwork Rattlebag, any hints or tips you could give me would be much appreciated :)
