PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

Great condition, serviced and running well. Modified with six separate outputs. We absolutely love the sound of these Korg beat boxes.

The KR-55B is the “jazz” version of the classic 55. Much less common, with a lot of different rhythms and a total of 96 different options.

These are great drum machines – 96 rhythm patterns (plus intros and fills) which can also be tweaked by the swing parameter, opening up a huge variety of different rhythms. It features a trig out for analogue synths/sequencers. Sonically all-analogue and good and meaty: see YouTube demo below of a KR-55 gives an idea of the sound (not this exact machine, same model – with thanks to the uploader):

Serviced and in excellent working order – all pots move smoothly and noiselessly and all pots, switches and knobs function exactly as they should. Modified by our tech with 6 mini-jack sockets on the side for the separate outputs.

(It is always possible with vintage equipment that crackly pots/sliders may develop over time when equipment has not been used – even during shipping – this can usually be easily rectified either by a few turns or in extreme cases, with suitable switch-cleaning spray).

CONDITION: Very good overall. Some scuffs and marks to the top of the case.

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.

VOLTAGE:

  • This 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. Check out our store (it’s the 50va unit you need) or get in touch if you need assistance.
