Serviced 60s/early 70s beat box. Ace Tone Rhythm Aces were the direct ancestors of the mighty Roland TR series of drum machines – this is very similar to the Roland TR-55.
For sale serviced and working well.
Condition of this machine is good for its 45 or so years with some signs of age – the plastic tops to the knobs are missing and the handle is worn out.
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. The range of rhythms isn’t exactly huge bvut you can generate some interesting variations with the usual multiple button presses and the selector knob.
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.
