The goldmine of weird vintage drum machines that is eBay Germany continues with This MPC-1 drum machine. It was made in England by MPC Electronics, who also made The Kit, and first shown at MusicMesse in 1983. Inevitably, Depeche Mode used one, and equally enevitably, the company soon went bust. It seems to be an analog, semi-modular drum machine with 8 playable pads. It has no relation to Roger Linn's rather more successful Akai MPC series. More info. This one is currently €249, and my Babelfish translation of the German description suggests that it's pretty much working, but don't bid unless you're sure... More German eBay craziness here and here and here.
