Roland, TR-909 @ 24 September 2017, Comments Off on Roland TR-909

usedtr9909 “Up for sale is my beloved 909. As you can tell, this is a very specialized version of this classic drum machine. This 909 contains modifications (thanks to Colin Fraser) to the kick as well as the high-hats, to give you far more flexibility that what is traditionally offered by a typical 909. The mods to the kick are the group of three rotary controls above low/mid Tom controls. As you can see, the same rotary knobs that were on the original were used on the mods. Mods to kick add three new controls:

– Pitch: controls the frequency of the bass drum oscillator

– Drive: allows waveform adjustment from normal to square, for hard clipped sounds

– Tune Depth: varies the amount of the initial pitch sweep (decay is set by TUNE control)

These mods literally give the 909 the ability to produce any kind of kick imaginable, from overdriven, to deep, pulsating kicks. ” Link

used tr909 “Up for grabs this original vintage CLASSIC Roland TR-909 Rhythm Composer Drum Machine from 1984.

It is in perfect working and good cosmetic condition.

Included is the original power cable. For the past 20 years it was mostly stored in an air conditioned storage facility, but it was occasionally used in a professional smoke-free studio.

If you are looking at this, then you know this is the mother of all drum machines! The classic that changed electronic music forever….. There are many clones, but nothing is as easy or fun as working with the original!

This was fully serviced 18 months ago at Valley Sound Music Technologies in North Hollywood, CA and it works perfectly. Cosmetically, there is one light cover missing over the “Tempo” push button tact switch, but the switch operates great. The holes drilled into the sides are because a previous owner had it mounted into his rack. They do not affect anything about the operation or sound, however I would recommend against hanging it from a rack! The right plastic side is a bit loose one the corner, but once again, it does NOT affect the sound or operation.” Link

tr909 ” Hello and thank you for looking. This auction is for the iconic Roland TR 909 rhythm composer/drum machine with original Roland TR 909 manual. The condition is in good operating condition and pretty good cosmetic condition with only a few blemishes on the bottom side of the case. The battery compartment is clean and normal as it is expected. This item is not mint, nor is it “new” it is a 38 year old piece of electronic equipment that is in good under used condition. I personally pulled this out of storage to raise some money for a home improvement project. I don’t want to sell it but must raise funds. I will start bidding less than some of the other tr909 auctions to encourage a quick and final sale. There will be no refunds on any vintage electronic equipment, sorry. You must do your research ahead of time to know what you are bidding on. ” Link

Only issues are one missing key which I have ordered and will ship with unit. UPDATE: The key has been replaced, good to go.

Comes with power cord and the promise that nothing else on the planet sounds like this.” Link

909” This drum machine works as good now as it did when I bought it brand new close to thirty years ago. A couple of the pots are scratchy as they turn but it hasn’t caused me any problem. I used it in my basement and in a lounge act I had long ago when I was young. 🙂 No manual but apparently it is on line for free.
It is missing its feet because of where I had it on my rack but they are also available on line should you want them. ” Link

roland tr-909 “Up for auction is my 909.
If you’re looking at this listing, you know that no software emulation does what this can do to your tracks or the dance floor.
It’s been sadly sitting unused for a while on a shelf in my smoke-free professional studio since I began making ambient music years ago and no longer use drum machines.
It’s in great condition considering it’s age and works without any problems.
Shows normal cosmetic wear and scratches due to age, but otherwise works great.
The item was professionally tested and checked before listing, so bid with peace, the item works great.

909 “Great condition. I had this unit gone over by a guy in Brooklyn last week who deals only in vintage electronics. All Knobs and buttons function properly. All MOD knobs function perfectly. All audio connections function perfectly. Battery compartment is corrosion free. There is a patch of small “salt grain” sized bumps on the upper part of the face above all the knobs. They have been there since I bought this unit 10 years ago or so. They have not changed since I bought it. They are hard (which is good), not bubbly and soft. PLEASE ZOOM IN ON PICTURES AND SEE FOR YOURSELF. Even in real life you have to look closely to see them.” Link

909“I am the owner, I bought this in 1984 and have owned it since. It has been in my home studio but I haven’t used it much since the early 90’s. It has never set foot in a commercial studio, so it is in excellent condition. This is the machine that gave Phil Collins his rhythms, as well as Blancmange, Chemical Brothers, Daft Punk, Moby, Radiohead, Kanye West, etc. It is a classic and will only become more collectable in the future.
Includes original manual and power cord.” Link

The list of classic house, techno, and hip hop songs featuring a real 909 goes on and on! This unit is in absolute mint cosmetic condition with the exception of two small dents on left side of chassis. Otherwise, this 909 would be a museum piece. No modifications and perfect working order; every function works perfectly as it should. Includes original AC cord, Manual, and Data Sheets.” Link

used909 ” Ok so this has gotta go also. It’s very dear to my heart….but she gets no use from me anymore and maybe someone else will give it the love it deserves. This is a PRISTINE 909! It’s like it came out of a time machine. I had it modded and since I didn’t want to destroy the front panel I had the mods put in to the Cartridge port. LOL! Here’s what the mods do. By order top to bottom:

1. Kick Drum Pitch Knob – You can now pitch the kick pretty LOW down..I’m guessing to 35-38hz
2. Kick Drum Pitch On/Off Switch.
3. Kick Drum Pitch Envelope Switch
4. Hi Hat Pitch Knob – Allows you pitch the Hi Hats up and down.
5. Kick Drum EXTRA Decay X2+ – This one gives you the long decay ala an 808 – OUTRAGEOUS
6. Hi Hat Pitch On/Off Switch

This an extraordinary piece for a connoisseur…so please only bid if you have an idea of what this mod can do.” Link
