Pearl Syncussion SY-1

Title link takes you to shots via this auction.

"Pearl Syncussion synthetic drum module. Renowned or notorious (depending on your point of view) for some of the classic 70's and 80's synth drum sounds. Should work with triggers using standard 1/4" plugs, or, as the original brochure says "microphones can be connected to either input", with a 1/4" connector of course. Mono output.

More information on this unit is available here and a download of the original product brochure is available here which gives an overview of the various functions."


  1. I use one. You can create plenty of sounds. Not just a drum synthesizer. The sound is great.

  2. Very limited overhyped machine. For the price, just buy a small monosynth with a noise source. You can get the same sounds, without the poor build quality.

  3. the sy-1 is equivalent of 2 monosynth. It' s built in wood and steel .
    The price is a real bargain

  4. Nothing beats the syncussion in drums (only a sds-3).

  5. you can create really old sci sounds as stated in the review.

  6. Anybody who says a syncussion is overhyped doesn't own one.
