Korg Rhythm 55B drum machine for sale in excellent cosmetic condition, serviced and in great working order.
The more “jazz” version of the the iconic and generally superb KR-55, these are great drum machines – this version has 96 rhythm patterns which can then be tweaked by the swing parameter, plus intros and fills, opening up a huge variety of different rhythms. It features a trig out for analogue synths/sequncers. Sonically all-analogue and good and meaty.
And no – it’s not all “jazz” stylings! It has a large range of different beats and styles, but including a selection of jazz rhythms not present on the 55.
It is in perfect working order – all pots move smoothly and noiselessly and all pots, switches and knobs function exactly as they should. (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 is excellent – it has a few scuffs and dings to the casing and the Korg sticker on the top, but overall it presents very well for its age – click on the photos to zoom in and see more shots.
Price includes VAT at 20% (for sales in UK/EU) – buyers outside the EU please contact us for tax-free prices. VAT-free sales possible to businesses and individuals in the EU (outside the UK) with a valid VAT Number.
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.
We can't stop here, this is bat country! Our next auction (November 22nd) features some head-turning, show-stopping synths, however we also wanted to put the spotlight...
