Overview

The Maestro Rhythm King is an analog drum machine popularized by groups such as Sly and the Family Stone in the 1960s and early 1970s. These machines had 18 preprogrammed rhythms, such as Bossa Nova, Samba and Cha-Cha. Eight sound trigger buttons on the front demanded careful planning of sampling and fills, and a balance control allowed users to emphasize bass or hi-hat. 

The Mark II did not change the essential sound, but offered a different array of preprogrammed settings. This is the most popular model, dubbed the "funk box" by Sly (of the Family Stone). 

Years of Production: ca. 1971 - 1974
