You missed it!


A superb example of the most iconic drum machine of all time. In perfect working order – fully serviced and tested for us by a top synth technician.

100v machine – see below for more information on voltage.

Cosmetic condition is very clean with minor scuffs and scrapes showing up, mainly on the edges of the case. There are a few small scratches of the face of the unit. There is also some light oxidation towards the front and back of the face. Some of the small knobs are damaged towards the tops, including one with no white cap. See photos for more info on cosmetic condition.

We have sold many excellent 808s covered by our guarantee to satisfied customers – buy with confidence. If you want to know more about who we are how we do business please visit our site.

  • 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.
