Roland TR-08

£319.00 In Stock.

The original Roland 808 is something of an icon. Introduced in 1980 and discontinued in 1983, it was one of the earliest programmable drum machines, the 808 was too much for a world not ready for its drum sounds upon its release, but found a huge cult following, ending up on tracks like Sexual Healing and Planet Rock. Still sampled today, Roland have elected to give more players access to this living legend by constructing the TR-08, an update of the original model, complete with the accidentally-created 'pssh' sound of the crash cymbal, which occurred when chief engineer Tadao Kikumoto spilled tea onto the breadboard of the prototype (true!). Capable of running off batteries as well as USB bus power, the TR-08 is a lithe, slimmer version of that 808, looking every bit the retro-future version of its father. Giving the player hands-on access to those ultra-famous sounds, it'll run 10 separate outs through USB audio, with a 16-step sequencer complete with 16 sub-steps. Now with added Compressor, Gain and Tune for selected instruments, this highly-portable creation has a mini speaker built in for instant action, retaining the untold joy and immediate excitement of the original 808, of which only 12,000 were made. Own a legend! The Roland TR-08 is available at Wunjos with a years' warranty as standard. Please call for availability.
