PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

Ace Tone Rhythm Aces were the direct ancestors of the mighty Roland TR series of drum machines – this is virtually-identical to the Roland TR-55.

Condition is good for it’s 45 or so years; some scuffs and signs of age. Click on the photos to zoom in and see more shots..

Sonically, it’s a real treat – lovely warm analogue beats that have a pleasing ‘woody’ tone to them – and it’s not marred by any noticeable age-related artefacts.

For sales in UK/EU the price will include VAT. VAT-free sales are possible to businesses and individuals in the EU (outside the UK) with a valid VAT Number – please get in touch if you wish to buy this way.

  • It is a 100v Japanese model and will run fine on North American mains 115/120v without a transformer (we run all our tests using 120v power); however, a step-down transformer is recommended for extended use.
  • A step-down transformer is required in the UK/EU.
  • We do not recommend using cheap generic Chinese mains transformers and can supply a high quality UK-made unit if required.
