Roland TR-909 Classic 80's Vintage Analoge Drum Machine - 240V

Classic and oh so famous 80's Roland drum machine. Great sounds, easy programming and heard all over tracks from the 80's till this very day in 2023!

The TR-909 is an awesome analogue drum machine. It is THE standard House and Techno beatbox. Sounds include kick, snare, hand clap, open and closed hi hats, low mid and hi toms, rim shot, ride and crash cymbals. Sounds are tweak-able by using the attack, tone, tuning, decay, snap and accent potentiometers.

It is armed with Roland's DIN Sync and MIDI, individual outputs, external memory cartridges (not included), and an essential shuffle & flam for great grooves. Use it as a sound module or program patterns, songs and beats into it...either way you'll be in analogue drum heaven with the 909!

Notable 909 users include 808 State, Air, Future Sound of London, Moby, Norman Cook (Fatboy Slim), Orbital, Underworld, The Prodigy, Faithless, Jimmy Edgar, Jean-Michel Jarre, Luke Vibert, The Chemical Brothers, Daft Punk, Aphex Twin, Kanye West, Carl Cox, Bjork, Squarepusher, Liam Howlett and so many more!
