The Tama Techstar is not too far from a Pearl Syncussion SY1. Paired with a new Analog Solutions Europa hardware TR style sequencer and you have vintage drum machine awesomeness! I need to get this set up myself… it’s certainly unique.
The TAMA TS-305 is a 6 channel drum synth module. It can be used as a desktop module or a massive 7u 19″ Rackmount. Each channel is a mini analogue synth drum module, capable of producing a wide range of electronic drum sounds, and since every parameter is defined by a knob, it’s highly tweakable.” – cykong.com
Would you spend around a grand for a set up like this?
