Robot Drummers

Ringo Star, watch out! Your job is in serious jeopardy.

Toshihiko Nishigaki of Kumihama-cho, Naka-gun, Japan has four robot drummers. One of them plays the "high drum", while the other three play a bass drum. The operation is very much like a player piano with the controller reading marks on a strip of paper tape. The robots stand just over five feet tall and were constructed from reinforced plastic. Nishigaki-san has them perform during local festivals.

Appropriately enough, the robots names are No. 1, No. 2, No. 3, and No. 4.
