Nomad Rhythm 12 - Vintage Drum Machine

"This is a very rare Nomad Rhythm Maker 12 drum machine.

Beautiful warm sound.

The machine has 12 different presets. You can also combine a couple of presets but pressing both buttons together.
There’s tempo, tone and volume control.

In the back there’s a 1/4” output jack as well as an input for a foot switch (not included) to start and stop the rhythms.

The last photo is taken from Joe Mansfield’s book about vintage drum machines where the Nomad is featured.

The drum machine seems to be in good working condition. Some of the presets are slightly odd - the Cha Cha and the Mambo seem to be playing the same beat, the Waltz and the Slow Rock seem to be quite minimal.

The start button is occasionally acting out and not starting the rhythm immediately but if that happens, I just depress and press again and it’s working fine.

Cosmetically, there’s some wear here and there - light scuffs, marks and a couple of small wood chips. Overall it is in nice vintage condition.

Please refer to photos for condition."

"RARE Hard-to-Find NOMAD RHYTHM MAKER 16 in working condition! I have seen some Nomad RM 12s but not a 16 - this is a great little sound and beat analog sound machine made in Japan and available in the 1970s - The unit has volume and tempo pods, cymbal - claves - cow bell and bass drum black rocker switches - march - shuffle - cha-cha - mambo - samba - rhumba - beguine - tango - swing - fox trot - bosa-nova - slow rock - rock n roll - western - dixieland and waltz

This instrument is in beautiful condition, there is some discoloration on the silver face plate that should clean up nicely - there are 4 small holes in the top of the unit as it was mounted under a keyboard shelf - very solid and well-made with a warm wood finish"
