In the beginning … Denon created … the Rhythm Box

September 26, 2008


so here’s  my little shrine to the glorious Denon CRB-90 or Rhythm Box !

As there seems to be precious little information on this kitsch old beatbox, this page will serve as my attempt to improve the situation …

If you own or have anything interesting to say about this retro, analog drum box, please leave a comment🙂


Another sighting!

Thanks to CJ for discovering that German artist DKDENT rocks a pristine looking Rhythm Box !

This guy has an extremely enviable classic synth collection (just look him up) so it’s especially nice to see the Rhythm Box in such good company😉

I bought their Teenage Love ep… title track is wonderful.
The vocals remind me so much of Sarah Nixey, which is definitely a good thing in my book.



Let’s go with Rhythm Box!!

Recent internet finds have encouraged me to share some content.  The discovery of an original Japanese advert just made my day🙂

Have just ‘re-discovered’ my aborted wordpress blog, was it really that long ago?

I originally gave up when I realised I had to ‘pay’ to customize the theme!
And I hadn’t even uploaded a picture of my Rhythmbox… tut tut.

Here it is, my Denon CRB-90 :


Found another Crb-90 !

Well, on Youtube anyway :

I was amazed to finally find evidence of another crb-90 in the wild…
Looks like this one’s had quite a hard life, with novel (but dirty) mods including handy mute switches!
