what's this drum controller?
« on: May 31, 2013, 08:44:44 AM »

Attached are pictures of a controller in a local music shop, but no one's sure what it is. They seem to be sure it's a drum controller. The logo says "JD21." Any ideas?

According to Wikipedia, it's a Tsumura JD21 percussion controller, manufactured in 1989 and definitely Japanese.  There's not a whole lot of information available on it, but here's some imagery that shows how it was held and played:  http://tinyurl.com/m4jwxqp

Recommend you call and ask for Chris, whose English is passable. I have no idea the next time I'll be out there.

Due to the different time zone, you'll have to call during 2am-10am U.S. Eastern time to reach Chris.
