I like my 202. I traded in an MC303 and never looked back...I hated the 303 too much dancin' shit. I like the expessiveness of the 202 and the larger array of drum sets....Yea it's no tr909, but for the money, will Joe average ever know the differance?...Think about it.

Killer drums and bass!!! The DR-202 has the low end totally covered. Easy to use and its PORTABLE with battery power--you can create on the run--I love mine. You can find great deals on used ones right now on ebay.

The greatest thing about the Boss DR-202 is that you have to use your imagination.I mean creating beats is like using a canvas with paint, and just using your mind.Too many times,i've come across up and coming MC'S,producers,singers etc.who say "I want to sound like so and so!"It not the equipment that makes the artist,it's all about imagination.So to all the up and coming producers out there don't let this fine piece of equipment get you down(the DR-202 or any instrument),just keep pushing.

If you are reading this with the intent of purchasing a DR. 202, then listen carefully.... It has a great variety of sounds, that with a little time and creativity, can be altered to form some pretty wild textures! It does have its drawbacks but they are'nt really all that big of a deal. If you plan on running it through a mixer, then you won't be affected by It's lack of volume. You simply turn it up on your mixer! And although its true design is for the electronic musician, it can produce a VERY wide variety of music styles ranging from, rock, latin, fusion, jazz, ect......and so forth! The price is VERY reasonable for what you get. If you are willing to dish out another $150 I would recommend looking into the Korg ER1 drum machine. But otherwise, you should'nt be dissapointed by the DR. 202. And like the guy above me already mentioned...."It runs on batteries!" I think I'm gonna take mine on the plane during my next vacation. People will have no clue what I'm doing.....but thats there problem! Heh! Visit me at On this ite, you will be able to hear for yourself what I have created with MY DR. 202! Sincerely, James!

ok i jsut got this thing about 2 days ago, ive already created 3 techno type songs with my own drum patterns, with help of 1 or 2 preset patterns. this thing is really simple to use if you give the manual a good scan. but when you first open it its very frustrating because you expect to beable to make crystal method quality songs right out of the box. the real time effect knobs are awsome, if youve ever played the playstation 2 game ssx, the sounds created with these knobs sound just like the stuff on the soundtrack of that game. i dont know if this is true for all of this model but the lcd screed is brighter when i have it running off of batteries than when i have the ac adapter plugged in. the preset patterns are good quality its fun to use the copy mode and then tweek the pattern until its what you want. the variety of sounds is incredible you could make infinite amounts of kits(limited by memory). which brings me to the only draw back, memory. there are not enough slots for user: kits, songs, and patterns. i think there is 65 user kits, 19 user songs and 100 user patterns. i think 19 songs is enough for starting bands like mine, but if you want to make your own songs with your own patterns then youll probably only have enough space to make patterns for 5-6 songs, i think that roland should have made a slot for a memory card to add maybe 8-16 more ram or rom which ever it is. over all this product kicks arse. i love it cant wait to see how it works out live.
