Roland TR-505

“ROLAND TR-505 Rhythm Composer AS IS Needs repair.
The machine is working except the snare drum is not right.
It generates a high pitch sound that bleeds thru the mix.
I had a tech at a local shop look at it , he changed a few parts but paying buying the hour was getting to cost me to much.
All the other drum samples sound perfect.
The LCD screen is in great condition as is also the drum machine.
You could add individual outputs to isolate each sound separately avoiding this ugly snare drum.
Comes with the 2 manuals and 6 new batteries. It also works with a power supply but thats not included.
I bet someone will be able to fix this great vintage drum machine or make it work in their setup.” Click here to visit listing on eBay

Roland TR-505 Project Machine

“This is a Roland TR-505 drum machine. It’s old, it’s used, it doesn’t work when I plug it in.

It worked when I packed it away ten years ago, so who knows—maybe it’s just corrosion on the AC adapter socket. That’s for you to figure out, though, not me.

You’re buying it as-is, with no guarantee other than looking like it does in the photos.” Click here to visit listing on eBay

Roland TR-707 with Roland TR-505 Project Machines

“I purchased these at an estate sale and neither will power up.

The TR-707 is in very good cosmetic condition – maybe some dust. The graphics in the window are blurred and the battery cover is missing.

The TR-505 is in poor cosmetic condition. Some of the buttons on the bottom row and area below is dented and chipped. You can see the area in the last picture. The paper pattern guide sheet is peeling away from the unit and the battery compartment had old batteries leak. ” Click here to visit listing on eBay

“Roland TR-505 Rhythm Composer, Used

Tested – Everything Works Great!

I found this beauty recently when I was going through some old equipment in storage. I have personally cleaned this unit in an out with contact cleaner and have tested afterwords to ensure that everything functions properly. This unit works and sounds like new.

This listing is for the Roland TR-505 Rhythm Composer unit ONLY, nothing else is included.

I tested this unit with 6 AA batteries and it worked great, as expected.
*I do have an ac power adapter (NOT INCLUDED) that I would be willing to add to sale. Please message me about a separate transaction.
If you have any questions please feel free to ask.

The only flaw that I found was on the left knob. Someone must have bumped it with a sharpie marker. Could easily be removed.” Click here to visit listing on eBay

Roland TR-505 Project Machine

“Roland TR-505 drum machine in fair cosmetic condition and will not power up. Resoldered a broken battery tray wire and the power jack terminals. Still will not power up with batteries, no power supply to test with. The battery compartment cover and tempo/volume knobs are missing. Selling as parts only. Circuit boards and connectors and buttons all appear perfectly fine to me. Could be an easy fix or used for restoring a damaged TR-505 or to start a modified drum machine circuit bending project. ” Click here to visit listing on eBay
