PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

[ PRICE REDUCED! ]

Roland CR-78 for sale in great cosmetic condition and perfect working order.

Just had a service with James Walker at Synth Repair Services and been given a clean bill of health. PAT-tested for electrical safety. Modified with a Tempo Fine Tune control – very useful for precise tempo-matching – and a carry handle!

This vintage drum machine was owned by John Hudson at Mayfair Studios and he used it on classic recordings through the 80s and 90s, including the Visage album. It sounds fantastic and everything works as it should.

Heart Of Glass, Atomic, In The Air Tonight, Same Old Scene, Enola Gay – the distinctive sound of the CR-78 has featured on hundreds of hit records: a truly iconic beatbox that still sounds good today. A historic example of a classic analogue drum machine.

Please view the detailed photos to fully-assess the condition before buying.

It’s a UK/EU 240v model so will require a step-up transformer for countries with 110v mains power.

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.
