Roland CR-5000

“Up for auction is a vintage rhythm machine from the 80’s………………the Roland CR-5000. I checked all the functions and they seem to work as intended and I connected it to a mini amplifier and got sound. The condition is pretty good for it’s age and isn’t dented or scratched all up. The whole unit is very clean and doesn’t have any funky smells. This comes with the original owner’s manual and three Roland DP-2 foot pedals. The date on the manual says May 1983. Take a look at all the photos and see if this meets your sound needs. I’m aware that there’s reference to this unit being used on some Blondie records from the 1980’s era………………this was probably a big deal back in it’s day. ” Click here to visit listing on eBay

“I just ran through this drum machine and all works great except I cannot hear the rim sound on any patterns. Knobs are good and output is good.

Physical condition is not great (mainly the metal face lifting from the casing). I did my best with the pics.

Includes the case which does not have a lot of padding, but served well for storing the drum machine.

I will be packing the drum machine well in the case AND with the case inside a box for shipping.” Click here to visit listing on eBay

“Up for bidding is a very nice condition, old Roland Cr5000, The exterior is clean however there are alot of light scratches to the white plastic which are very faint and may not show up in photos, also there is a bit of a light area on top which may have had a sticker or something. All that being said it still looks very nice. I tried to test most aspects of it and it appears to work very well. I did notice that when using a standard guitar foot switch you had to click it twice, it is really a fun little thing. A manual is avaliable at the Roland Support Archive which is really helpful, even though it is pretty simple to figure out. Realize even though I tested it I may have missed some small aspect so it is being offered as is.” Click here to visit listing on eBay

“Bought this many years ago and has been sitting in my closet covered. In near perfect condition. When I first got it out only a few of the buttons would respond but now all but the conga, HH16 and Samba 1 do not respond. I think with a little time they all will work.” Click here to visit listing on eBay

“This drum machine was working fine last year when we used it exclusively for click track in our Studio.

Unfortunately, after testing it we noticed that 4 or 5 of the buttons don’t work- It seems like that contact conductive pads (under the buttons) are dirty and in need of a good cleaning and/or minor modification.
So the unit is sold AS IS” Click here to visit listing on eBay

“Roland CR-5000 Analog Drum Machine (AS-IS)

Cosmetically it is in excellent condition. Very clean but unfortunately this is a parts or repair machine. You could only access 1 of 3 banks. That one bank sounds great. Sync actually works too. I can’t get the arranger buttons to light up. I saw a fix online about this saying you don’t need new buttons. I would fix it but don’t have time. Your gain my loss. No returns. ”

Roland CR-5000 Project Machine

cr5k “You are looking at a used, partially defective, Roland Compurhythm CR-5000 unit. To see a full demonstration of this drum machine, head over to here to see the video I posted of it.
A confirmed 7 buttons do not work on this unit: Bank II, CY-8, Shuffle, and 4 of the programmable style buttons: “Swing 2, Rock 3, Meringue” “Tango, Rock 5, Chacha” Habenera, Rock 6, Rumba” and BD4, FoxTrot, BossaNova” The other buttons all function, but as you can see in the video are a little finicky. If I had to guess the problem, I would guess the connection is weak and just needs to be re-soldered to get back to 100%.

This unit is sold as is and is partially defective. This is a very rare, old piece of technology, so to anyone looking to refurbish and fix I advise caution! I was too afraid to open it up myself because this device is over 35 years old now. This device is in very good overall cosmetic condition, the only flaw is on the left side of the device where it looks like the plastic may have cracked and was repaired. Aside from this, there are some hairline scratches and normal wear from use over the years. ” Click here to visit listing on eBay

cr5000 “Time capsule Roland CR-5000. Some very minor scuffs but cosmetically a 9.5/10. Everything works and sounds great! Even the underside looks almost new. Factory protective plastic still on the serial number plate in the back. Don’t think I’ve ever seen one this nice. ” Click here to visit listing on eBay

cr5000 “Up for sale –
Pair of 2 Roland CompuRhythm CR-5000 Micro-Computer Controlled Rhythm Machines.
These units have been in storage for quite some time marked ‘Fix’

Unit Number 1 is in great cosmetic condition, and is completely intact. All buttons / knobs / keys are there, the unit powers on, and I can occasionally get some of the other buttons to light up, but not always. I have produced some sound from it but have not tested for full functionality and make no guarantees – it may need some TLC.

Unit number 2 is in fair cosmetic condition, and also appears to be 99% intact. Although it is partially disassembled, all of the plastic buttons are accounted for, as well as every knob. It appears that 3 of the buttons were physically removed from the circuit board, and 2 of them are present in this auction. I have no idea what functional condition this unit is in.

It appears that someone intended to repair them – either by salvaging one for parts, or possibly they had finished repairing one and were working on the other… I’m not sure. My guess is that someone with knowledge about these or similar units could probably make both of them function with a little effort, but again, no guarantee. ” Click here to visit listing on eBay

Two screw holes are broken on the bottom covering (see last photo – you can barely make out the two missing screws) which is only a cosmetic thing.” Click here to visit listing on eBay
