Another in my series of basic (and I do mean basic !) demos of some of my favourite bits of gear. Here is the Mattel Synsonics, a piece of gear I lusted over as a young boy, thinking it would be my ticket to super mega stardom as the most supreme drummer of all time. Sadly, my pocket money couldn’t stretch to it, and my parents figured that I’d be far better served by a Subbuteo set, as a career in table football was much better :-s
I eventually found one of these in mint condition on eBay and promptly snapped it up. Sadly, after almost 30 years of waiting, I was slightly underwhelmed, but I’m sure it would’ve blown my mind back in the day.
Apparently, Kraftwerk used these at one point.
