linndrum “This is a very well-cared for fully-functional Linndrum that has been in my possession for the last decade and hasn’t left my home studio. But it is not a normal Linndrum, it’s special. The previous owner was obsessed with Prince, so much so he had a Sidestick tuning mod added. What this accomplishes is that by installing some original LM-1 EPROMS and switching them around, he was able to have a tunable kick, snare, and sidestick playing all at the same time – basically making a LM-1 / Linndrum combo! When I bought this from him I had all of the original Linndrum factory EPROMS put back in, but I still have the LM-1 EPROMS in case the buyer is interested in doing this LM-1 hybrid. It’s certainly fun to feel like Prince at a fraction of the cost!

The machine is also fully MIDIfied by the JL Cooper Electronics mod and works flawlessly. It comes with manual and some paperwork, and of course a power cord.

As with any machine this old there are a few blemishes. There is a small scratch to the right side of the click fader. You can see it in photo #6. Also, the tempo knob is digital and can be a little shaky at times (shifts 1 BPM or so). This happens on ALL Linndrums. However, if you use MIDI or sync it via CLOCK, then it is never going to be an issue. It would only possibly be an issue if you were slaving your entire studio to the Linndrum’s internal clock. Also, again, with a machine this age, a pot or fader might be a little scratchy, however what history has taught me is that if you turn it back and forth a few times this goes away and is not permanent. It simply means a little dust is interfering with the electronics.

You can look for a bargain Linndrum that you can fix up, but this one has a lot of extras that make it worth it to someone who doesn’t want to waste time, and just wants to make music. I paid a premium for it because the added features were worth it to me. It has served me well over the years.” Click here to visit listing on eBay

EPROM sockets installed for easy changing of drum sounds.
PSU board serviced in 2014 by Bruce Forat.
General servicing also in 2014 by Chris Hewitt at This Old Synth in San Jose.
Since it was serviced, I had not unpacked the LinnDrum nor turned it on until I just now tested it for this listing.
Every switch, pot and sound are working beautifully.
New custom White Oak wood panels by GMUSynth.com just installed. I am including the original panels as well (they have a few dings)
A couple of the sound chips have been replaced by non-standard sounds: Clap is currently African Bell, and the Congas have been replaced by Rock Tom sounds, as you can see in the photos. With the convenient sockets installed, it’s very simple to replace any of the sounds with any EPROMs that you either burn yourself or find on Ebay.
Ships in included Pelican 1650 airtight fight case with plenty of padding. Power cord also included.
Shipping to the lower 48 only. ” Click here to visit listing on eBay

lm2 “This listing is for a vintage LM-2 LinnDrum. Had the midi upgrade done back in the mid-late 80’s was studio kept until moved into storage in the late 90’s. I recently plugged it in and hooked it up to some speakers and drum triggers to make sure it still works and it sounds just as good as the day I packed it up 17 or 18 years ago. Will need a new battery as most synths from the 70’s and 80’s do.
Also included in this listing are 30 original alternate sound chips Linndrum put out before closing their doors in the 90’s. These chips are generally hard to find and I’ve seen them go for a minimum of $10 or more for a single chip. Lots of toms, bass and snare and some sound effects.

lm2 “Amazing Linndrum LM2 Drum Machine.

Fully working…

Fully serviced and has a clean bill of health by the best engineer in the UK for Vintage Drum machines and synths Ben Rosbourough,
He works on machines for all credible artists Annie Lenox, Dave Stuart,

Mark Ronson and every other band and artists you could imagine that use analogue machines.
So its ready to go and has years of life left in it and sounds amazing.

Sounds and feels great.

All original LM2 eproms installed.

They also have the quick release eprom sockets so if you do want to swap eprom sounds you easily can.

This Super rare Linndrum is one of the best drum machines you can get. It can sound heavy weight with the classic Linndrum Kick and Snare sounds
it can be very rounded fat and chunky as well as light icey and breezy its very versatile.

The clock and groove of the sequencer is amazing on these machines yes you can get LM2 samples
but the feel of the clock and the way the machine grooves and ticks over is the real charm and character of this amazing drum machine theres nothing quite like it.

Used on countless hits from the 80s, 90s upto the present day.

Sounds: The tunable Side stick and Snare give you that crazy Prince sound.
The tunable toms and congas can become bass lines waiting to happen.
And the top end and percussive parts are stunning.

All with individual outputs for each sound aswell as L-R Mix out.

Synch: I have been syching/clocking this machine with a Roland SH101 to test and its tight and funky and sounds bang on.
And I have also been lining up the Linndrum takes to the Click track in Logic X and its very steady and stays with the click.

Visual condition: It has the od mark and scratch here and there but understandable for a drum machine this age, but nothing to bad and generally in very good condition.” Click here to visit listing on eBay

LinnDrum @ 19 January 2016, Comments Off on LinnDrum LM-2

lm2“Used maybe a half dozen time in the 1980’s in 48 track analogue studio, then in a homestudio. Stored for 25 years in a non-smoking home. It powered up with no patterns in memory. Testing done- all instrument buttons make sound though main outs, recorded and revised several patterns, recorded data backup (originally designed to be done to a special specification cassette recorder) from “cassette out” to a MOTU 828 interface, played data back verified and loaded ok. Kept powered on for 24 hours, then powered down and turned on again and it retained the pattern. Since batteries are over 25 years old it might be advisable to change them, even though they worked for this brief test. Each of the instrument pitch tuning knobs seemed to work, creating some interesting sounds at there extreme ranges, and the high hat duration knob seemed to do interesting stuff with a high hat playing that I have not been able to easily do with a software sampler (though it might be available in some software) There was a little “scratchiness” on a couple of pan pots when making sudden dramatic changes which the instrument was being fed out the main outs. Probably most users will not be doing active panning from the Linn Drum while it is playing, so I will leave it to the purchaser to decide whether to try to eliminate scratching during movement by exercising the faders or with a cleaner- either of which could make it better in many cases, but could conceivably sometimes make it worse- it depends on the faders (on Mackie consoles it has frequently cleared any scratchyness), and I don’t know Linn Drum Faders.
Batteries and modifications might possibly be available from FORAT electronics, and there seemed to be a manual at bleeps-and-peeps which has a website at the com address of the same name. (Buyer to verify before purchase. Seller makes no representations other than the specific tests done). A reference to “this old synthesizer” in San Jose was found that they might (or might not) do work on a Linn Drum.
Cosmetically there are a few small nicks on the wood sides and paint, and a little masking tape and residue. A couple of scratches on the bottom. It is about 30 years old, and any aging or deterioration should be expected accordingly, but it looks pretty good to me.” Click here to visit listing on eBay

LinnDrum @ 22 December 2015, Comments Off on LinnDrum LM-2

linndruim l2 “This Linn Drum 9000 is a very rare and often sought after drum machine. Serial number is 1847. I acquired this from a friend several years ago and loved playing with this drum machine. Often times referred to as the LM-2, the descendent of the very famous LM-1, which was used by superstars like Prince, Depeche Mode, and others on the pop charts, these samples are still used in RnB, hip hop and pop music today.

This unit is in very nice condition. The only reason I don’t say excellent is because it has a bit of wear n tear, as in minor scratches or knicks, from being approx 35 years old. Nothing serious and totally age appropriate. I bought the unit fully functioning and everything I’ve tested works. All samples, volumes, fades, record and playback features as well as outs for each sample are working properly. All the song capabilities seem to be working as well but I didn’t get into depth with that as I used it in conjunction with Logic and never needed it.

Original power cord here. Inside looks clean. You can definitely mod for midi. The battery may need to be replaced because patterns don’t always save when unplugged. It’s a very minor cost and I didn’t feel comfortable doing it since its in such great condition and all the units I’ve soldered on and worked with have been less valuable. There is one volume fader that has a white cap, since it was missing upon purchase. You could easily swap for a black cap. Since everything seems to be working 100% so unit is sold as is. No returns. You pretty much know what you’re getting with this bad boy though.” Click here to visit listing on eBay
