Elgam Match 15 C (1971) vintage analog drum machine! The First Elgam Rhythm Box!

via this auction

"Extremely rare analog drum machine Elgam Match 15 C! This gorgeous analog rhythm box - made in Italy in 1971 – is the first electronic drum machine produced by Elgam, the italian brand that also invented the legendary Elgam Carousel in the same years! This gem is the same rhythm section that was then assembled on the Elgam Carousel! Extremely rare and highly collectable! It’s born in 1971, so this year this little gem turns 50 years old! The item is fully working and in very good cosmetical conditions for its age: the drum machine sounds great and works perfectly! The rhythms are mixable and very cool. It has a characteristic fat warm sound especially with a nice tape delay and reverb added. The tempo slows things right down and you can get some unintential sounds out of this piece of kit. For example, you could use it running through distortion pedals to get some interesting riff style sounds! On YouTube you can find a video of the smallest model of the same serie: the Elgam Match 7C!" [demos in previous posts here]
