“This item is in very good condition. It was surviced by Forat. The SP has the upgraded bright lcd screen. All the sliders Knobs and outputs are in excellent condition. There’s a minor chip on the very back of the machine and scratches (see pics). I didnt even notice it until I took pics of the machine. Doesn’t affect the functionality whatsoever. I’m only selling because I recently bought a 1200 and I can’t keep both.” Click here to visit listing on eBay

“Excellent condition. Some minor signs of wear to be expected for the age of this unit, but overall it’s quite nice. Be sure to check out the pictures to make sure you like it.
100% fully functional, recently serviced and checked-out by a pro tech. The only thing worth mentioning is the backlight is faint, screen is still readable but this is completely normal for the age of the unit and replacement screens can easily be found online.
All buttons and pads serviced before sale, everything is working as it should. Includes power cable and a dust cover.” Click here to visit listing on eBay

“This is an EMU SP-12 with factory Turbo. It’s in decent cosmetic shape and shows typical wear associated with vintage gear. Most importantly, though, it is in fantastic working shape. It’s been fitted with a Noritake Itron display and blue filter for easy viewing at any angle. The display looks nice in person, though my camera couldn’t focus when I pointed at it. I am including a wire bound copy of the user manual and power cord. ”

“Mighty SP12 Turbo: everything works. All LEDs, sliders, knobs and buttons. The sliders are in very good shape. I bought it from the original owner. Serviced last week, new battery, NOS slider caps purchased to a reputed seller and will include 5 original slider caps as spares. I have owned and used dozens of drum machines (beggining with a Drumulator in 1985) and to me the SP12 has the best workflow of all.
The OS installed is 1.8 The usual yellowish build up of these machines is present. A custom made sturdy vinyl dust cover is included.” Click here to visit listing on eBay

“A rare find, this E-mu Systems SP-12 Sampling Percussion machine is in excellent electronic condition and good cosmetic condition. The unit has a few scratches on the interface and rear panel (please see pictures), and several of the level knobs are slightly bent. The knobs could likely be bent back in a few seconds by hand, but I don’t do that sort of thing. Aside from this, it’s in very good condition. The unit been sound tested. Comes with 8-inch floppy disk reader (disk reader has not been tested), power cords and disk reader cables. A true classic. ”

sp12 “This SP-12 is sold AS IS. IT IS NOT WORKING.

I got this from a friend a while back, it has never worked.

It makes some strange noises, but some of the LCD info appears to show up.

Somebody with the appropriate technical knowledge would have a chance at restoring it. I have no experience with these at all and have no idea how it works.” Click here to visit listing on eBay

use ems “Submitted for your approval is the E-mu systems SP-12 Sampling Percussion unit. If you know me, you know I love these. I found this one bummy and busted. I took it to Forat and after many repairs. He:

Repaired boot problem.
Replaced broken output 4 jack.
Replaced incorrect fuse with a proper one.
Replaced battery.
Completely refurbished all pads and replaced broken or missing parts.
Completely refurbished all Function buttons.
Sliders are jumpy and very sticky, installed 8 brand new sliders.
A/D converter offset is totally wrong, ran diagnostics and calibrated offsets.
Tightened transformer.
Cleaned master volume, click and sample input pots.

This unit is a sparkling 30 year guaranteed worker. Cosmetically it has some issues. There is a black case instead of the normal grey, it looks like someone bought an sp1200 and then modded the sp12 panels over it. The screen has a cover on it, which is not the same as I being on other units. This unit works great though, sliders and buttons are immaculate, this is the turbo model with os 2.4 (See demo). It has 5 seconds sample time. The screen is brighter than ones I’ve had in the past, but I don’t think it was replaced. This unit is a trooper, it looks like it was serviced at rogue music years ago and for being older than me it’s still working just as well. Like always I get something I really want to keep and use in my studio and then rent comes due and I’m short so…”

Only minor aesthetic point that needs to be addressed is that the last slider on the crash is slightly different from every other slider.

The price is reflective of the cost of the unit, the hardware upgrades and technician service fees. ” Click here to visit listing on eBay

emu-sp-12 “Selling a classic EMU SP-12 Turbo

If your looking at this chances are you know the history. The SP 12 and 1200 shaped the sound of early hiphop and house and it’s sounds are still sought after and relevant in the modern age.

This unit is in very good condition given it’s age with only minor wear. Most noticeable is the small chip in paint on the front right corner (pictured above), but is otherwise fully functional and has recently been serviced and had the power supply recapped.

sp-12 “For sale is an Emu Sp12 Turbo edition with 5 seconds sampling time. This SP12 is in super nice condition overall. It does have a few wear so be sure to check out the detailed pictures below to make sure you like it. The backlight is out but this is quite normal for an SP12 of this age, you can still read the screen fine in a well lit room. I just serviced all the buttons/pads so they are triggering smoothly. Everything is 100% fully functional. This also has upgraded modded filter by-pass outputs so that you can access both filtered outputs and non-filtered outputs. The SP12 sounds awesome! It’s the best way to get the SP1200 same 12-bit sound quality at half the price, with 5 second sampling time and cool 80s style built in drums sounds. Includes original manual and power cable.

sp12turbo “I’m conflicted on selling this to be honest, but after much thought I’ve decided it’s time.

Custom screen, recapped, calibrated, every single button disassembled and cleaned (Every button works in one button press! SP heads know how rare that is to find!), every drum pad works perfect and was serviced.

I’m asking all the money for this one because it’s real clean and completely serviced.

Sounds amazing. Oh, and all faders work without jumping! No noise on outputs, volume knob, etc. No BS!” Click here to visit listing on eBay

emusp12 “This is one of the most legendary tools for HipHops sound back in the early days. The way samples sound when put through this machine is the BEST, especially when you tune it down, the crunch sounds great. Ive had this for a few years myself and I am only looking to sell it because I need the extra money to move out into a new place, and I dont have enough room for all my equiptment. Tuff times. There is a chip in the front right (see pictures) and also a bit o the same to the front left, but just cracks. The 3rd button on the left for the sampled sounds is a little jammed but still works for if you sequence your beats, a little harder to work with live. I havnt used this in about 6 months but I belive its the 2nd slider that is a little out of tune just from how old the machine is, but it still works you justhave to play with it. Other than those two minor issues this is in perfect working condition, and the MOST FUN sampler to record and sequence with for my beats. Ive made around 100 beats with this and hope to one day buy another one. Congrats to whoever gets this, you will have so much fun!” Click here to visit listing on eBay

sp12turbo “First off, if money’s an issue, message me! Great machine right here, everything works and sounds great. Inside battery died, but it works without one and I’m including a few spares, about 20 years worth, so you can swap those out if you want to.My last one apparently had some fuzz in the outs but I checked this one and it ran fine. I was about to put a video on here anyways with cool samples and everything, but its been awhile since I’ve made any beats so yeah that didn’t really happen, so if you want a functionality test just let me know and I’ll get that to you . The drums on this are crazy, really worth using this system for, very different from other hardware out there if you don’t already know. Really gives those crispy realistic drums, and smooth old sampling for your samples.The 5 seconds isn’t really that bad, it puts you in a situation where you can do some interesting things that you really wouldn’t have been able to do without it.This is the turbo and honestly you can make a lot of good stuff on here with some practice. ” Click here to visit listing on eBay
