Great little drum machine from the 1980’s. I have two, so time to part with one.

Does not have any cards or sample board. I have seen the sample boards floating around (one on eBay right now). ” Click here to visit listing on eBay

Some of the writing on the unit is worn, and there are lots of small scratches and small worn features all about the case; all of which can be seen in the photos (please zoom in on the photos for a close inspection.)

3/ The unit powers up, meaning the LCD display comes on, when unit switched on.

4/ There is no sound coming out of any of the outputs.

5/ The 3 ROM cards were, and have always been, plugged into the unit since I bought it in 2001. (The unit worked ok when I bought it in 2001, including the ROM cards. Since 2002 the unit has been stored in a bedroom in my house). I unplugged the ROM cards 2 days ago for the photos taken for this listing. They seem in fair condition and show no visual signs that they may be physically damaged (cracks or damage due to impact etc..), I could not test them as the unit would not work when I tested it. I cannot therefore guarentee that they work, so they are being sold as UNTESTED.” Click here to visit listing on eBay

“Good condition with some scuffs the paintwork (see pics) and a couple of very small chips here and there (also see pics). No major visual damage and fully working. All buttons work, although a couple need a bit of the main selector buttons need a good press. The screen backlight still works, though it’s not amazingly bright. Not sure whether these ever were. This has been tested with some ROM cards (not included) and all 4 slots work. The flap over the ROM slots is still intact (it often breaks on these machines). The mains lead has been cut to add in an extension (see last pic) and this means it has a longer lead than standard. All round, not mint condition, but a good example.”

“Vibey, underrated drum machine with killer snare & well balanced kick.

Please note this has particular model has a couple of issues. Firstly the function 1 button (F1) doesn’t work. The contact underneath needs replacing – should be a straight forward fix.

Secondly when playing the drum buttons on the machine the kick sounds loud in comparison to the rest of the drum hits. This doesn’t happen if you are triggering it via your DAW…everything is balanced & as it should be.

I used to play this via my DAW / midi keyboard & it sounds great. All the decay, output level & tuning options work fine. ”
