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.

Serviced; the transformer was dead but we have fitted a new replacement which means it can now be switched internally between 120v and 240v (we will do this before it ships!).

Condition

In good cosmetic condition with some ageing of the face and a few scuffs to the wooden case. Some of the push buttons are heavily worn, this does not affect the functionality of the unit. Please see photos or get in touch if you require more information on condition.

Voltage Information

Switchable voltage for use anywhere in the world - it will be set up ready for you to use before we ship.

Tax

For sales in UK the price will include 20% VAT. Buyers elsewhere may incur VAT or other local taxes on import.
