Roland TR-909

“1980s Roland TR-909 Rhythm Composer (Drum Machine). No issues. Works perfectly. All buttons and knobs work as they should. Well cared for and maintained by Bruce Forat.

**Also a very special mod by Bruce so I can have Rom Version 1 and 4 (Rom version 4 does not allow a factory reset). He made a switch in the battery compartment (see photo). The best of both worlds. You can switch between Rom version 1 so you can do a factory reset and Rom version 4 for midi timing correction. This machine is probably a one of kind. This mod does not effect the sound at all. It’s a costly upgrade.

See photos for cosmetic condition. Comes with power cord and a copy of the owners manual.

High serial number which will have all the Roland revisions to the 909. Great sounding machine. ”

Roland CR-68

“Up for sale is a Vintage Roland CR-68 CompuRhythm Drum Machine. This package includes the foot switch and a photocopy of the owner’s manual. I have tested this unit for the following. First, the unit powers up when I plugged it in and turned it on. I plugged my amp into it and tested every button and dial. Each of them produced a unique sound and rhythm. I also tested the foot switch, which stops and activates the sound. I don’t know what the other input/output like “trigger out” or the switch is for, so I left them alone. Please check out the provided images for the cosmetic condition. As a vintage item, expect normal wear and age, but I think you will be impressed overall.”

Roland System 100 Model 101 and Model 102

” The classic, there’s nothing like it. I know, that’s a tired phrase but if you haven’t heard the thundering bass and filters on these, you have to. There’s something about gear from this era, they definitely got the low end right.

Having both the 101 and 102 is phenomenal – 2nd FAT oscillator, another phenomenal filter set (HP and LP), snappy envelope and VCA, PLUS … Ring Mod, Sample and Hold, both weak and strong oscillator sync that sounds insane, and more!

You’ll find some System 100 101’s online, without the 102, and they’ve usually got serious problems. To find both, in great working condition? Rare. This is a special opportunity as both of these units are in very, very good condition.

Many used 101/102’s are missing sliders, slider caps, pot caps or switches are broken. The sliders and pots are noisy and deteriorated. Very often the 101 keyboards have keys that are dead, no action, or the key bed contacts are intermittent or non-functioning, etc.. Not here, all working and solid.

To make sure before selling, I had both recently completely inspected and serviced, including calibrated, fully recapped, and had all pots, sliders checked, by Three Waves Music in NJ. I have the receipts ($800+) and you can call them to confirm and ask any questions. If you’re serious, I can send you the full receipts for your review, and if you purchase, I will email you the receipts for your records, but for privacy I prefer not to post them online here.”

Yamaha TX216

“This Yamaha TX216 has been fully restored by Synhouse, including 2 new lithium batteries in 2 new battery sockets for easier replacement (and because soldered-in batteries are 100x more known to leak, don’t know why), and it has the Synhouse/Synclav com TX216/TX816 power supply upgrade, in fact it is the very first in the world to have this, and has been worked on day and night here for 16 days to finish off this power supply upgrade kit and installation.

Synhouse has engineered (2016-2019) a massive power supply upgrade that puts a Synclavier power supply into the Yamaha TX816. It’s a little more than that, it’s actually a custom +5v digital power supply and +/-15v Synclavier analog power supply that goes into the TX816 with upgraded wiring, improved grounding, and additionally gets rid of that ridiculous donkey tail AC power cord (only 2-prong, it isn’t even grounded), putting a normal, properly grounded, IEC AC inlet on the back so that it can use a standard computer power cord. ”

ARP Odyssey

“Vintage ARP Odyssey 2800 MK III Model 2823. This synth has just had a full service and is ready to go! It works flawlessly and will cut thru any mix. Pure funk at it’s analog greatest, this vintage synth blows the re-issue Odyssey’s right out of the water. Nothing sounds like an original 2800 and this one is superb.

Functionally this synth is perfect. It does have wear on the side panels and bottom panel. The front panel cosmetics are perfect.”
