Kawai R-100

“KAWAI R 100 DRUM MACHINE – working fine but outer case damaged in transit.
I sold this on ebay last month and trusted Hermes with it but it was bashed around in transit and outer casing broken on 3 out of 4 corners so it was returned to me. The drum machine still worked perfectly so I duck taped the lower casing to stop dust getting in
I took a photo of it before duck taping so see last photo
Comes with user manual and a cartridge plus a handy carry bag”

“Vintage KAWAI R-100 Drum Machine True Industrial Animal My Favorite Drum Machine. The Kawai R-100 got in to my hands because I own a Kawai K3 and because the colors match, I decided to buy it and did not think anything of it so the first week of getting it, I didn’t even turn it on. I didn’t think Kawai would have a drum machine good enough to satisfy a guy who own every drum machine you can think of from 70’s until now. But then one day I turned it on and this has become one of my most favorite machines ever until I bought 4 of them as back ups. A little greedy I know but I did. This is one of my back ups. After realizing that this machine is a tractor and won’t break I will only keep 2 and will sell the others. ” Click here to visit listing on eBay

“I have not tested this item. Definitely worn but seems solid. On light and screen illuminate when switched on. All selection lights function as well. Rough, but seems to be working. The top cover is loose and not connected to the bottom. I do not guarantee this item. Could be used for parts or could be a great deal. ” Click here to visit listing on eBay

r-100 “I’m selling my Kawai R100 drum machine, along with a few other items I’ll be listing this week, to raise some funds for Eurorack.

The item is in fair cosmetic condition. The number keys can be sticky, which I did find annoying ocassionaly when jamming and switching between pattern, so you will have to bear that in mind when bidding. Maybe you’d want to fix it, or you could be happy living with it, depending on how you’are using it. I’ve seen online that they can do mad things when circuit bent, so maybe that’s an avenue worth exploring.” Click here to visit listing on eBay

r100” I’m selling my Kawai R100 drum machine, along with a few other items I’ll be listing this week, to raise some funds for Eurorack.

The item is in fair cosmetic condition. The number keys can be sticky, which I did find annoying ocassionaly when jamming and switching between pattern, so you will have to bear that in mind when bidding. Maybe you’d want to fix it, or you could be happy living with it, depending on how you’are using it. I’ve seen online that they can do mad things when circuit bent, so maybe that’s an avenue worth exploring.

I was a bit misinformed when I bought it, as I read industrial bands had used it; I was a bit more techno and thought I could make it work for me, but I was wrong. It did to some extent, but not how I wanted it to – was good fun and sounded awesome through distortion and overdriven compression, but it wasn’t the exact sound I was after, so it never really got much use after the first few months of having it. So I’m looking at things I can use to raise funds, and this one can go.

It has a built in power supply, so no wall wart to worry about. You can see from the pics that there are some cosmetic scuffs, but there are no cracks or anything serious, as it was built to last, unlike stuff today.

It has very comprehensive programming, pitching, outputs, so it’s quite a deep machine. It was top of the line in its day, and there’s still quite a lot of love for it online. I don’t have the original box or maual, only a printed copy. I will ensure it is well packaged for transit.” Click here to visit listing on eBay
