This is my favourite drum machine of all time. Warm tone, crisp highs, and really simple to use. I really like the ability to play drum rolls with the keys while the unit plays-back the previously recorded loop. Definitely ahead of it's time. If you are looking for one, check eBay. I picked mine up there and I see a couple units a week. I would never sell this machine.

Fun stuff! I'm not too fond of the pads, really, ever since I discovered the wonders of its record mode. Crank up the tempo real high, lay down some sounds with the roll buttons, and create some great lo-fi techno!!!!!

I got mine in 1984 brand new. I'm probably one of maybe twenty people who paid full price ($100) for one. The left tom can be tuned high enough to give a bizarre ping or low enough to become a badass analog kick drum. Someone told me recently that the sounds are indeed analog, and I'm not surprised. I haven't done it yet, but I can't wait to try sampling mine through some effects. I only wish it wasn't so noisy...and some mods for it would be nice. All the same, this is the cheapest way to get unique, non-cliched techno drum sounds. We don't need no stinkin' 909s!

I've had these things sice I was like 8 years old. When I started an industrial band, I scraped the two inches of dust off of them and set them up on a makeshift drumstand, made almost entirely of duct tape and prayer.

The sounds in this thing are great considering that my mommy bought it for me! If you tune the lo tom all the way down, you can get a credible TR 808/909 type kick out of them, and the snare sounds like a cross between an 808 and a small cardboard box being beaten with a broken shortwave radio. The cymbal sounds nice, but it's impossible to use the accent mode when playing with the sticks, so it you're using this live (NO I AM NOT KIDDING!!!!) put your hats on DAT.

If you don't mind other bands snickering behind their hands at you when you set up your drums, this is a neat little toy. Now if only their was some way to mount it to a stand....

You cant beat a drum kit you can replace for 15 bucks!! Anyone looking to sell? Mine crapped out last year.

I bought two new in 1983. One died rather soon after but the remaining one I still use. Best toy drum sounds I've heard--very robust cheesy sound. They both are/were noisy but that's the charm, and you can always EQ it to death. Plus the price can't be beat
