“One of the most iconic drum machines ever produced, the Roland TR-808. This unit is fully functional with no electronic issues, very good condition. The only defect is the grounding prong missing from the power cord. Overall one of the cleanest TR-808 we have come through our studio. Legendary sounds and really fun to play with!” Click here to visit listing on eBay

“Listing is for the CLASSIC Roland TR-808, I have owned this machine since 2004, and have put no more than 10 hours on this machine.
The face is extremely clean, and has a factory fit plastic shield with Japanese lettering that has helped to keep the beauty of this machine intact.

Everything functions properly and sounds great.
The custom suitcase is foam padded and a good fit if you need to move this machine anywhere.

Only down side is some minor corrosion on the outside of the battery cover (see picture), battery compartment is clean.”

It has some wear from age and use but is in overall good condition.
There’s some light scratches and scuffs, the power button is damaged.

Up for auction is a one and only Roland TR-808 Rhythm Composer ~ legendary classic analog drum machine!
Comes with the Manuals and Pattern Sheets (see pics) – NICE!

This 808 is in FLAWLESS cosmetic condition ~~ as close to being MINT as it gets! PERFECT working condition!

All knobs and buttons work as they should. No issues whatsoever. Battery compartment is CLEAN.

The 808 is the king of all drum machines. All of the emulators, samples and new groove boxes coming out are good in their own right, but absolutely nothing is the same as the real thing. There’s the 808 and then there’s everything else. Quit dreaming and get one! You’ll never look back!” Click here to visit listing on eBay

“Not sure what is wrong with it. All the buttons light up, tempo knob, start/stop all work, but there is no sound coming out of it. Keep in mind I have no idea how this thing works. I hooked it up to a powered speaker on the main and all the little blips and lights worked but it was dead silent. Buddy said it was an opamp. I don’t know what that means, also has a busted switch under the main volume knob. I know there are a bunch of places that fix these things but I don’t wanna mess with it.” Click here to visit listing on eBay

808 “We bought this unit directly from our client Babydaddy of Scissor Sisters – he sold us most of the gear in the Scissor Sisters studio here in New York City after Scissor Sisters went on indefinite hiatus. Since then, he’s been focusing on songwriting for other artists (from allmusic.com: Bright Light Bright Light, Fantasia, Ladyhawke, Demi Lovato, Melanie Martinez, Laura Welsh, Ferras, Cheryl, Betty Who, Chris Brown, Pharoah, etc.).

Like nearly all the high end vintage analog musical instruments we sell, this item has been METICULOUSLY disassembled, cleaned inside and out, FULLY serviced by us = professionals who’ve been servicing and selling vintage electronic musical instruments for more than the last 2 decades, and systematically tested multiple times over a long period to ensure it’s working exactly as it should. No BS. No ebay surprises. We’re perfectionists and don’t cut corners. Although this instrument came to us in relatively good shape, we want our items to be better than the rest and invested *many* hours of tech time plus parts costs to fully overhaul this unit so it would be clean, working like new again and as reliable as possible for its next owner. This was a serious investment of time, love, and money, and was definitely worth the effort and is of course reflected in the higher than usual price. If you’re looking for a great sounding example of this model that works just like it should without needing to invest hundreds or thousands of dollars in tech fees and waiting from weeks to years, this one should make you very happy. ”

This is a low owner UK machine that’s only been used in home studios. Very good all round condition, the Kenton conversion was done fairly recently within last couple of years and works perfectly. All the various control knobs, dials and switches work fine.The front panel looks good.All the writing is clear and free of any major scratches. There are some minor age related surface blemishes here and there but nothing that stands out. There is some light surface rust along the left edge, the rear panel has bits of surface rust and on some outputs but nothing a bit of wire wool can’t sort. Ultimately this is a fantastic sounding machine that’s fully working and with midi!!!” Click here to visit listing on eBay

808 “Roland TR-808 Drum Machine w/MIDI!

This unit was previously listed with a DIN sync issue but it has been fixed and DIN sync input/output is working!

Listing is for a Roland TR-808 Drum Machine with CHD MIDI retrofit! I used this solely as a velocity-sensitive MIDI triggered sound source but the unit can be synched via DIN if that’s what you prefer. When syncing the internal sequencer to MIDI, it is slightly delayed when in “manual play” mode which I attribute to MIDI clock timing slop so the purchaser should plan on using it as a MIDI triggered or DIN synched unit for getting authentic TR-808 sounds. Samples, VST instruments, clones, etc. cannot touch the sound of the real thing.” Click here to visit listing on eBay

808 ” You are bidding on the mythical Roland TR-808 Analog Drum Machine!! This is the beast that started it all, from Electro, Hip-hop, Techno, you name it, this box has been on a million of your favorite tunes. You know what this is!!

This 808 is fully working, but hasn’t been serviced in a little while. The sounds all play fine, but the switches on the congas could either be cleaned or replaced to make things a bit easier. There is some usual wear on the front, nothing major, just some usual wear around the most-used knobs. Overall the box is in good shape and works fine, but could probably use a service or a little TLC from the new owner. Everything has been working great for me (you can see the lights on in the pics), I wasn’t planning to part it with it right now, but I’m in a financial bind and really need the money, sadly.

When I got this a couple years ago I replaced all the switches and had the box tuned and serviced, so the sounds (cow bell, for example) are all essentially stock. I also replaced the knobs with a full new set — rare to see these with all the knobs and start/stop button intact!

An older Kenton Midi mod has been installed on this 808, you can see the “in / out / thru” ports on the side of the box, in addition to the “din sync” port on the back. I had some questions about the midi mod when I first got this box, and Kenton support was very responsive and helpful. So if you have a technician (or plan to work on it yourself) don’t hesitate to get in touch with Kenton regarding the mod.

The 808 operates a bit differently than the 606 / 707 / 909, but it just takes a little time with the manual to get used to it. The kick, snare, clap, hats — all unmistakable and classic… Barely needs any processing to make a track magic!” Click here to visit listing on eBay

This is an old but durable machine. Everything works. There is a slight hesitation sometimes with the START/STOP knob but nothing extreme (Really, nothing major). It really isn’t a show stopper at all and just really could use a little TLC. I am making some needed adjustments in my life and chose to finally drawdown the remainder of my analog arsenal.
