PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

Another in the range of Ace Tone 60s beatboxes and this one sounds particularly good. Serviced and working well. See below for Instagram demo of this unit in action.

Ace Tone Rhythm Aces were the direct ancestors of the mighty Roland TR series of drum machines. You might be forgiven for thinking that all the “FR” range of Ace Tone boxes are basically the same machine in a different case, but this is not the case – the circuits are undoubtedly very similar but different components can mean they don’t all sound alike (the use of different components may have been driven by nothing more than what was available at the time of course). Certainly this one sounds different to many other examples we’ve had. It’s very clear and punchy with some real bite to the claves and tom sounds.

The range of rhythms isn’t exactly huge but you can generate some interesting combinations and jam along with the usual multiple button presses and the variation selector knob.

For sale serviced and working well.

Condition of this machine is excellent for its age with only very minor signs of age. The face is very clean with only a few small dings. The wood is also excellent with the usual minor dings to the corners. Please see photos for more info.

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.
