Here we have a good condition Korg DDD-1 drum machine with 4 ROM cards installed. Drum Machine has nice bright blue screen. One small issue and only issue is that TOM 1 pad always sounds a bit lower in volume then the rest of the pads. Probably just needs to be cleaned. Some pretty good ROMs included, they are:
1. Bass Brum
2. Snare Drum
3. Hi Tom
4. Mid Tom
5. Lo Tom
Rock 4 Hydraulic
1. Bass Drum 1
2. Bass Drum 2
3. Snare Drum

6. Lo Tom
Gate Reverb 4 – Electronic

2. Snare Drum 1
3. Snare Drum 2

“The drum machine and sampling board are fully functional with the age related quirks mentioned below.
It is clean and does not smell of smoke. The backlights is bright and led dark. All of the drum trigger button work well and are velocity sensitive. All button and slider caps are there.
The less good:
Physically, the drum machine has scratches, scuffs and is missing a chunk of plastic on the RAM card slot. She’s no beauty queen. The function and number buttons require a firm press. A rubber foot is missing from the bottom.
Other things of note:
This is a really cool drum machine with an ultimate 80s sound. It is was more directed at the working musician rather than studios. As a result, it is grittier (noisier) than pro gear of the same era. I think this gives it character. There are lots of ROM card with new sounds available. In addition, this one comes with the sampling board installed. So you can add lo fi samples to your drum patterns. The sampling process is pretty basic and you have to experiment to get the best results. The samples are kept in battery backed up RAM. Originally the sampling board came with a NiCad battery. The original died and has been replaced with a NiMD battery. This battery recharges when the drum machine is on. So, if you don’t use it for long periods of time, the battery will drain and your samples will be lost. A new coin battery and holder have been installed for pattern memory. ”
“Great sounds! All functions work. The only problem is that the battery needs to be replaced. Your patterns/songs won’t save if power is turned off. The battery is inside the drum machine. It’s a 3v. There are instructions to change it on-line. Besides that this unit is in good shape. You’ll also get the original manual. ” Link

” Got this in a lot I purchased. Everything seems to work fine except the clap button which seems to needs some cleaning. I can hear the clap, its just not as loud and I have to hit/push kind of hard. I recorded a drum beat and it played it back. That’s about as good as I am able to test it. Sold as is, no returns. ” Link
“I am selling this drum machine as is, for parts, repair or modifications, for $10 starting bid. Originally retailed for about $999 when it came out in 1986 – which is about $2167 adjusted for inflation : )
The clap trigger does not seem to work. The other triggers seem to work.
I m not currently able to trigger patterns. I did in the past ( it had some cool and some VERY unique and wacky patterns), but I am not sure how I did it then.” Link

“Circuit Bent Korg DDD-1 Drum Machine
w/ L.E.D. illuminated, alphabetized 16 point patchbay
that allows you to document good bends and note their placement by looking at the backlit, alphabetized, patchbay.
Like the Roland 808 and 909, each drum sound has it’s own 1/4th inch output.
Bent by Cosmic Blooper, a design and production partner of the GetLoFi.com store
This bent drum machine is in decent cosmetic condition, a few scratches here and there but nothing that prevents it from functioning.” Link
“Verkaufe guten alten Eigties Drummie. Der Drumcomputer ist optisch und technisch Top in Schuss. Eine Speicherkarte und eine original Bedienungsanleitung sind auch mit dabei, aber nicht auf dem Foto zu sehen.Neben den internen Sounds, ist es möglich die Sounds von bis zu 5 Soundcards zu nutzen. Außerdem kann der DDD-1 wunderbar als Midi to Trigger genutzt werden, da er genau wie die alten Roland Drummies die Rim als Triggersignal ausgibt, heißt man kann damit z. B. Eine SH-101, Juno 60 etc ins Midis-Set-Up einbinden.
Folgende Soundcards sind mit dabei:
Claps & Fingersnaps
Variation 3 Bass

“Korg DDD1 Drum Machine
This is an old school drum machine. The best thing is that it is so easy to use. You hardly will need the manual. So refreshing.
It doesn’t have as many sounds as the new machines out, but it is a basic workhorse that is quick and easy.
You can also use it as a MIDI controller and record a wierd sounding “stripe” on one tape track. Then when you play that track back, the drum machine syncs up and plays seperatly.
This is so cool because you can go back and tweak up the drum track as many times as you want because it is not actually recorded. It also saves tracks too.
I don’t have any of the memory cards or extra sound cards but it does come with the manual. I hate to sell it because it is an old friend and it works so good. Good luck!” Auction ended. Click here to browse on eBay.
“This is in very good used condition. The only flaws is there is a foot pad on the back of the machine that is missing (see picture), and a very small crack in the plastic underneath where the ram card goes (only visible if you are specifically looking for it.

Comes with the E-Drums 2 ROM card (features two electronic bass drums, two electronic snares and two electronic toms). A classic machine, easy to program, individual outs.

Up for auction is an extremely valuable and rare item from my collection, a drum machine/sampler made by Korg and used by the band Skinny Puppy in the studio and to the best of my knowledge, also on stage. I purchased this gem directly from the band and my buddy at the time autographed it for me. So it is autographed by none other than Electronic Music Pioneer, Mr. cEvin Key of Skinny Puppy, Download, Doubting Thomas, etc, etc… The writing on the unit says, “To Raven With Love” “Cevin Key” and has the year “2001″ signed on it.
I really don’t want to part with this as it has some serious personal value to me, but when you need money, things sometimes have to go. And this is one of those things unfortunately.
The Korg DDD-1 was a monumental drum synth in it’s day and is still highly regarded for it’s sounds and sequencer. This particular unit has the sampler option built into it as well as two add-on cards: The DDC-E03 Snare Drum 1 and the DDC-D01 Cymbal cards. This machine not only sounds good, but it has had two owners, me being the second, so it is in extremely good condition. It is certain to provide years of drum programming for you and makes a great centerpiece in a studio.” Auction ended. Click here to browse on eBay.
