PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

Excellent condition for it’s 45 or so years; minor scuffs and signs of age. Original black centres to the knobs have gone. Click on the photos to zoom in and see more shots.

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.

Sonically, these are 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.

CONDITION: Excellent overall condition, the face is very clean with minimal wear or age. The tolex is very good, there is wear under the handle. See photos for more information on cosmetic condition.

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.
