The Vox Percussion King is a grand-looking, but functionally-basic drum device: it has no onboard preset rhythms, nor any programming facilities.
So why is it so good? I’ve not encountered anything else that sounds like it: warm, woody, drums and percussion, and soft tape-like cymbals/brushes. Very much how recorded drums sounded in the sixties: we love it.
Here I add more than a touch of delay courtesy of a couple of Boss DD-2s, a dusting of early digital reverb; plus phasing from the Schaller Rotor Sound and flanging by the Roland SBF-325; supporting Maestro MRK 4 beat - with additional melodic bloops courtesy of a Syncussion SY-1M.
More information on them all on the Soundgas site - it seems the Vox was used by Devo, Grandmaster Flash, and maybe even Kraftwerk for the kick drum on Autobahn, or is this just an internet myth? - 20 minutes ago
