Pearl Fightman FM-8 Rare Analog Drum Synth

via this auction

Note this does not have any sequencing capabilities.  It is a drum synth aka drum brain.

"This is a fully working very rare Pearl FM-8 Fightman Analog Drum Machine/Synthesizer. I believe it was made before the Syncussion. The closest machine that resembles it in my opinion is a Roland TR-606, except the Fightman has some very real sounding Toms. The Hi Hat, Crash, are very Metallic and the Ride is almost like a Synth Tone, it's beautiful!

This Drum Synth is very hard to come by, trust me.

This unit does not have Midi.

I will include 2 homemade adapters that have 3.5mm inputs so this can be triggered with a trigger sequencer like a Beststep pro, or Modular Synth."

You can find a video of one posted here.
