“I have for sale a Boss Dr-55 VINTAGE drum machine. The machine is very rare and works great! It takes AA batteries and is in average condition for it’s age. ” Auction ended. Click here to browse on eBay.
I’ve had it for nearly 10 years and it stopped working about 2 years ago…
I’ve heard they are quite easy to fix, and the schematics/manual notes are readily available online. Could be just a op-amp that needs changing. ” Auction ended. Click here to browse on eBay.
“Amazing deal! This is a Roland BOSS DR-55 Rhythm Drum Machine. It is in great shape for its age, and that is because it hasn’t been used very much. Very nice cosmetic condition. It is believed to be in good working condition, but is untested and sold as is. Includes the box, instructions, even the original stickers still on their sheets… heck even the receipt from 1983! It could even be brand new! The box is pretty beat up from being moved around in storage so much… and the battery cover has gone missing. Shouldn’t affect the function of the machine though!” Auction ended. Click here to browse on eBay.
“This is the original Boss Doctor Rhythm DR55 programmable analogue drum machine as used by electro pioneers from Thomas Dolby to Vince Clarke and Depeche Mode.Its a classic and is now even more appreciated than when it first was released.
This unit is in good condition , and fully working with box.It also comes with some instructions on how to mod it for separate outputs and a crisper snare sound.it hasn’t been modified , but the info is there to do it.
It has 2 trigger outputs for driving analogue sequencers , synths and other drum machines such as the Monotribe , one programmable and one fixed .The beauty of a real analogue machine is that the noise creating the sounds is genuinely random , so each snare or hi hat sound is subtly different , a sample does not give the same effect.
This machine has helped me create some many songs over the years ,and is a great simple compositional tool .” Auction ended. Click here to browse on eBay.

“Hi fellow musicians! I was going thru my music closet and I found this vintage Dr-55 drum machine. I bought this in 1980 to used in a duet with a piano player. We played two wedding gigs and I moved to take a “real job.” Well, I do have some sentimental attachment but I don’t collect vintage effects. So, this is your chance to get what was the first drum machine that started the BOSS line up. I will print some reviews here so you know what it does. The only others I’ve seen are for some reason in England. You can buy this one locally from the original owner with the box and manuals. This old school analog and way cool.” Auction ended.

The unit itself is in wonderful cosmetic condition considering its age.
The last photo shows a small amount of sticky tape to one end of the battery cradle along with the units serial number.
The manuals are clean and not ripped or written on.
The box is showing its age but is holding up very well.” Auction ended. Click here to browse on eBay.
“This very lightly used Vintage Drum Machine comes from a Pet & SMOKE FREE home.
+ original fully functioning Battery Cover
+ original Box
+ original Manual
NOTE: see pictures; the battery compartment on this unit had deteriorated with age.
Some SUPER GLUE gel & some tape have restored its functionality…
it WORKS! It could use a new battery compartment which would simply plug in, replacing the old one.
Should you not want to go to this trouble, the batteries CAN be changed all the same & secured
as I have done. The 4AA batteries are new.” Auction ended. Click here to browse on eBay.

“This unit is in good condition for its age. It has marks and paint wear, but most importantly, everything works perfectly. These things have that awesome vintage sound to them, at a very cheap price. These have been going up in value over the last decade, and are getting more and more hard to find in perfect working condition like this one.” Auction ended. Click here to browse on eBay.
