Roland TR808

Came into stock: 3rd April 2014

Servicing Status: KSR undertaking full servicing now so should be ready in April.

Remarks: The demand for high-quality examples of the world most famous drum machine continues to grow, and MIDI fitted units are highly sought after.

We’re very happy to be able to offer this excellent condition TR808, which has been retro-fitted with a Kenton MIDI kit. The cosmetic condition of this example is at the highest level we have seen. Clearly, this drum machine has been very well cared for with home use only in its 30+ year life.

Plenty has been said & written about this iconic instrument, and the recent Roland Aira TR-8 announcement seems to have generated even more interest in the vintage original….which often happens. It sounds great of course and is one of those ‘must have’ instruments if your serious about analogue.

KSR are going though the TR808 now – treating the unit to a complete overhaul to ensure another 30 years of reliable service. All the buttons and switches are original on this unit, and in perfect working order, so if you’ve been looking to treat yourself to a TR808 worth having for keeps, then look no further.

This example is sold with a full 3 months warranty and runs on 220V EU voltage. User manual will be supplied in a PDF.

Price: £2950 GBP.

Availability: This Roland TR808 is currently SOLD as at 6th June 2014.
