Vintage Hammond Auto-Vari 64 Drum Machine
The Hammond Auto-Vari 64 analog drum machine came out in the mid-1970s and still holds true just as one would expect from Hammond. While the Auto-Vari is meant to work in tandem with an organ, this drum machine can be played through a regular amp as well. However, the quality will diminish some if it's not coming through a Leslie.
There are sixteen preset rhythms, with four variations each (A, B, C, and D buttons), for the 64 namesake beat patterns. These four variations lead to the Auto-Vari switch, which is the dynamic heart of this machine. With the Auto-Vari function engaged, the four pattern variations, per selected rhythm(s), will cycle based on the measure dial control knob.
This Hammond drum machine is used but it is in great cosmetic condition. Especially for its vintage state. It may show slight cosmetic wear from normal use. There is no damage that will affect the sound or playability of this drum machine. It has been checked over and everything is functioning properly.
The rear of the Auto-Vari 64 features a power plug, an audio out jack, a balance trim pot to balance the high and low frequency of the audio output, and a footswitch for starting and stopping the patterns. You can press two or more buttons together to build combo patterns. Each of the sixteen rhythm selections contains four variations and are two measures long.
