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.

Roland TR909

We are Brokering this instrument for and on behalf of our UK customer

Came into stock: September 2013

Servicing Status: Full service by KSR will commence post-sale.

Remarks: The TR909 is simply a classic sounding analogue drum machine and used by a huge array of top artists with thousands of reviews, mp3s and videos on on-line so we’re not going to tell you anything new here.

Most professional musicians we know have at least 2 or even 3 of these machines and they usually get very heavy studio and live use which is a testament to the rugged, stable and reliable design from Roland in the mid 80s.

This example come from a private collection and is in excellent condition.

Runs on EU 220V.

As with all Brokered Sales, the synth will be fully serviced post-sale before it’s sent to its new owner. We do this to ensure that the instrument leaves us in perfect operational condition, and it is backed up by our full warranty to give the new owner complete peace of mind. The servicing is carried out as a priority once the the sale has been completed, and although it will delay shipping/delivery by a short time, we know from experience that customers are happy to wait.

Guide Price Post-Servicing: £2150 GBP.
