A Roland TR-808 for sale fully serviced and in good condition overall with some age-related wear.
Serviced by a top engineer and in superb operating condition.

We’ve sold several excellent 808s to satisfied customers in the past so buy with confidence.
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 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.
