Get On Down Publishing will soon launch this fantastic book on all things drum machine. Joe Mansfield, the author of Beat Box: A Drum Machine Obsession and co-founder of Get On Down, has amassed 75 drum machines over his career as a music producer and industry veteran. Over 200 photos document the various machines, ranging from 1950s to 1980s. Aside from photos of the beat box, this book shows archive advertisements, and interviews with Davy DMX, Schoolly-D, Marshall Jefferson, and Roger Linn. Slated to start delivery later this month, the book is available as a pre-order from Get On Down online shop at the moment.
