” Alesis HR-16 drum machine. I replaced the sound EPROMs with Linn Drum samples. They sound great! I also replaced the LCD screen with a blue screen w/ white text – it looks fantastic. It comes with the original EPROMs and the original LCD screen (although the original LCD screen is quite hard to read the text…but still functional).
With the new EPROMs, I have also installed a new/updated Operating System – this makes the display read Alesis HR-16B, but it is in fact just the HR-16 model. However, it is an updated Operating System (old one also included!)
It is in need of a couple screws to cinch down the PCB. Some of the buttons require an extra bit of pressure because of this, but all buttons and pads are functional. My local ACE hardware didn’t have replacement screws that small, or else I would have included them!
It does not include the power supply. I will ship it with the new LCD screen & Linn drum EPROMs installed, and I will include the original LCD and EPROMs. Also included are instructions to install/replace the EPROMs – which is quite easy for even the most novice musician / DIY-er / etc.” Link
” This auction is for one Alesis HR-16 vintage drum machine. It is in great shape and works like the day it was released from the factory. The drum sounds are similar to the LinnDrum and DMX but a little more clear overall. It hits just as hard in a mix as those slightly earlier drum machines. It is easy to swap out the internal rom (it is socketed) with other soundsets you can burn yourself or find for purchase online; this would let you have, say, TR-808 sounds in your HR-16.
This auction includes the retail box (covered in tape, but it is the original!), power supply, original styrofoam and the HR-16 itself. Good luck and happy bidding!” Link

“The unit seems to have some serious issues and it should only be purchased for parts or repair. The power supply is missing and will not be included. The LCD appears to be broken. The white substance on the lid is the remains of an adhesive paper label. I tried to use a universal power supply to test the unit; the ON button produced no visible sign of operation. There is NO RESERVE on this item. Please consider the item AS-IS, but I’ll honor the return policy if you wish.” Auction ended. Click here to browse on eBay.
” Alesis HR-16 Drum Machine. This unit is in great working condition and has that awesome classic 80s drum machine sound. Super easy to use and in good working condition. Only flaw – handle for volume control has broken off. Volume still works – you just have to insert something into the groove to move the control.
All basic instructions located on the inside panel as shown in second picture.
Some yellowing of buttons but other than that, in clean condition. ” Auction ended. Click here to browse on eBay.
“For sale is this Alesis HR-16 High Sample rate/16 Bit Drum Machine. This drum machine does power up and you can get some sounds out of the drum pads. The error code seems to come on often. I am not sure how to operate it but I am pretty sure it is not working properly. Therefore it is being sold as-is. It is in decent cosmetic condition but could use a good cleaning.” Auction ended.

“You are looking at a Alesis HR-16 drum machine used but works fine. The volume slider is broken but you can still turn volume up and down, and there are a few normal cratches” Auction ended. Click here to browse on eBay.
“I imagine most lookers know about this vintage unit. (and I am sure specs are easily found elsewhere on the internet) I am the original owner and hate letting this go, but I find I’m using it less and less and leaning on my software instead in the computer. This unit LAYERED with real or other drum sounds will rock your tracks. It is a great sounding machine in its’ own right too, but added with other tracks is incredible.
The cons: Since I’ve owned this new since the 90′s??….(or late 80′s??). over the years, some of the pads are becoming less responsive. They are velocity sensitive for volume, but can also be set for a constant velocity. However, they do all work but are starting to get finicky on the “softer hits”.
However, you can hook up a MIDI cable to it and use another trigger (like a cheapie keyboard), which I basically found easier to use for creating “live” parts or recording MIDI loops in the unit. Additionally, I used it as a sound source, but since Toontracks EZX electronic (software) came out, I’m finding it don’t use this as much and am letting a good friend go up for auction.
This unit has ALWAYS been in my smoke free studio and NEVER used live. ” Auction ended. Click here to browse on eBay.
