An analog drum pad CV controller.
Produced in the early 70s, marketed as an accessory for Moog synthesizers, including the MiniMoog and Sonic Six.
Also known as Moog Percussion Controller and Moog Drum.

According to the original ad, the 1130 "actuates unique musical tones with drumsticks".

The unit is basicially an 8-inch-diameter tom drum with a acoustic transducer converting the beating into control voltages. Knobs for scale and velocity sensitivity are also included.

There are two CV outputs for controlling volume and pitch on the connected synth (harder hit = higher tone). In addition, an S-trigger jack is available. The device is powered by a six-pin connector plugged into the controlled instrument.

Information from all over the web, as usual.
