” Works very well. Of course, over the years it has worn into what it is today. Everything works well on it. There is some static that presents itself sometimes among 2 or 3 instruments but it’s only on those volume knobs. Typically it is caused from dust. It is an amazing machine !” Click here to visit listing on eBay

“This TR-909 unit was once owned by Skinny Puppy and, previous to that, the one and only Kraftwerk. Considering the enduring influence of both of these groups, it really deserves to be in a museum. It’s been in my possession since 1994 and has never been outside of the studio. While I would love to keep it around for trusty grooves (and as a conversation piece), my interests have changed. It should be in the hands of someone more dedicated to the keeping the techno mojo flowing.

It’s in top shape except for one technical issue: the internal memory has stopped working. A technician traced the problem to a faulty CMOS chip, the repair of which would be relatively straight-forward. In the meantime, patterns can easily be saved to a cartridge (such as the M-16C or M-64C), if need be. In any case, I’m building up beats live most of the time and consider this the quintessential mode — see Jeff Mills ‘Exhibitionist’.

Voltage is currently set for 120V. This can be changed internally to 220V or 110V by switching taps on the internal power transformer. Comes with owner’s manual and annotated service manual in a hard binder. Shipping will be insured and the unit will be double boxed.”

“Roland TR-909 Rhythm Composer Analog Drum Machine TR909 TR 909 Vintage.

This unit was recently given a complete review by an audio repair shop and everything was found to be working perfectly. No scratchy pots, everything is in perfect working order. This is coming out of my smoke free studio and this is my every day percussion source, so no surprises it’s in perfect working order.

This unit does have a couple of minor nicks if you look at it with a magnifying glass but is easily the best condition of any TR-909 I have come across so far.

Please note:

I’m also including a Doepfer MSY3 midi-to-dinclock adapter and a 3ft and 10ft midi/din cable so you can just plug and play this into your existing setup!” Click here to visit listing on eBay

“If you are looking for a vintage Roland TR-909 that works excellently and you will be able to depend on to function for years to come, you should consider this guy.

It has been serviced by a professional competent tech and all features and functions work great. The knobs move smoothly and quietly, all outputs work, every function has been tested and it is ready to make tracks.

It is in good cosmetic condition with some minor cosmetic defects. It has a few light scratches, scuffs, and indentions here and there.

It has some very mild wear along the front edge in one spot where the paint reacted with the black rubber of a keyboard stand (not noticeable), some mild wear to the plastic ends, but this machine still looks sharp.

It comes with it’s original, printed in Japan, manual and the correct cartridge. It also includes it’s original two prong power cable.

The battery compartment is acid corrosion free. I replaced the double A battery holder and foam during it’s last servicing.

This has the version one EPROM and is a pretty early machine serial number 382,026. I have never had a midi timing issue. Replacing the EPROM to upgrade to version 4 is major surgery since it is not a socketed EPROM so I never bothered. Something to think about is the majority of tunes that made the 909 famous were done with version 1 and 2 EPROMS. This was my reasoning for not upgrading. Another mystery to me is the serial number system of the 909. I have NEVER in all my life (I am old) seen one with a serial number below 381,500. Either way this 909 functions and sounds GREAT. I could listen to the kick from this machine all day long. ” Click here to visit listing on eBay

“1980s Roland TR-909 Rhythm Composer (Drum Machine). No issues. Works perfectly. All buttons and knobs work as they should. Well cared for and maintained by Bruce Forat.

**Also a very special mod by Bruce so I can have Rom Version 1 and 4 (Rom version 4 does not allow a factory reset). He made a switch in the battery compartment (see photo). The best of both worlds. You can switch between Rom version 1 so you can do a factory reset and Rom version 4 for midi timing correction. This machine is probably a one of kind. This mod does not effect the sound at all. It’s a costly upgrade.

See photos for cosmetic condition. Comes with power cord and a copy of the owners manual.

High serial number which will have all the Roland revisions to the 909. Great sounding machine. ” Click here to visit listing on eBay

Roland, TR-909 @ 17 February 2019, Comments Off on Roland TR-909

“This TR-909 is fully functioning and ready to change hands. The screw mounts for the left side panel are broken and I’ve used tape to keep it in place over the years. It came this way from the previous owner and although OEM side panels can be cheaply sourced from a Roland SBX-80 or custom built wooden ones would work all the same, tape worked just fine for my purposes. To be completely thorough the individual outs are not fully volume consistent, adjusting the gains on the mixer channels to match desired levels (or the volume pots themselves) is necessary. This is true of vintage analogue drum machines in general and comes down to personal mixing preferences. This is a non-issue function wise with the TR-909 itself. Happy bidding” Click here to visit listing on eBay

usedtr9909 “Up for sale is my beloved 909. As you can tell, this is a very specialized version of this classic drum machine. This 909 contains modifications (thanks to Colin Fraser) to the kick as well as the high-hats, to give you far more flexibility that what is traditionally offered by a typical 909. The mods to the kick are the group of three rotary controls above low/mid Tom controls. As you can see, the same rotary knobs that were on the original were used on the mods. Mods to kick add three new controls:

– Pitch: controls the frequency of the bass drum oscillator

– Drive: allows waveform adjustment from normal to square, for hard clipped sounds

– Tune Depth: varies the amount of the initial pitch sweep (decay is set by TUNE control)

These mods literally give the 909 the ability to produce any kind of kick imaginable, from overdriven, to deep, pulsating kicks. ” Click here to visit listing on eBay

used tr909 “Up for grabs this original vintage CLASSIC Roland TR-909 Rhythm Composer Drum Machine from 1984.

It is in perfect working and good cosmetic condition.

Included is the original power cable. For the past 20 years it was mostly stored in an air conditioned storage facility, but it was occasionally used in a professional smoke-free studio.

If you are looking at this, then you know this is the mother of all drum machines! The classic that changed electronic music forever….. There are many clones, but nothing is as easy or fun as working with the original!

This was fully serviced 18 months ago at Valley Sound Music Technologies in North Hollywood, CA and it works perfectly. Cosmetically, there is one light cover missing over the “Tempo” push button tact switch, but the switch operates great. The holes drilled into the sides are because a previous owner had it mounted into his rack. They do not affect anything about the operation or sound, however I would recommend against hanging it from a rack! The right plastic side is a bit loose one the corner, but once again, it does NOT affect the sound or operation.” Click here to visit listing on eBay

The condition is in good operating condition and pretty good cosmetic condition with only a few blemishes on the bottom side of the case. The battery compartment is clean and normal as it is expected. This item is not mint, nor is it “new” it is a 38 year old piece of electronic equipment that is in good under used condition. I personally pulled this out of storage to raise some money for a home improvement project. I don’t want to sell it but must raise funds. I will start bidding less than some of the other tr909 auctions to encourage a quick and final sale. There will be no refunds on any vintage electronic equipment, sorry.
