Uncommon 1960’s beatbox – the Roland CR-68 and 78 are descendants, but the sound of these is quite different: primitive and very good!

Product Description

Ace Tone FR-6 analogue drum machine for sale.

Ace Tone Rhythm Aces were the direct ancestors of the mighty Roland TR and CR series of drum machines. You might be forgiven for thinking that the various "FR" range of Ace Tone boxes are basically the same machine in a different case, but this is not the case - the circuits have plenty of similarities, but differences in design and components can mean they don't all sound alike (the use of different components may have been driven by nothing more than what was available at the time of course!). These sound different to other Ace Tones we've had; very clear and punchy with some real bite to the claves and tom sounds.

The range of rhythms isn't exactly huge but you can generate some interesting combinations and jam along with the usual multiple button presses and the variation selector knob.

Condition

Condition of this machine is excellent for its age with only very minor signs of age. The face is very clean with only a few small dings. The wood is also excellent with the usual minor dings to the corners. Please see photos or get in touch if you require more information on condition.

Voltage Information

100v Japanese model - it will run 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.

Tax

For sales in UK/EU the price will include 20% VAT. If you have an EU VAT number (outside the UK) you can enter it at check out to have VAT removed.
