I can’t pass up the chance to share this hilarity.  I’ve seen this Roland TR 909 come up on Ebay in the past and now it’s popped up on Craigslist in Denver.  I wanted to  memorialize it in all it’s glory before it’s gone for ever!  Be sure to check out the gallery.  It’s just crazy.  The TR 909 looks like it was brought into a burning house to play a DJ set by the fire department!

Roland TR-909 Drum Machine – $1500 (Longmont)

Roland TR-909 Drum Machine… Original owner. Bought it new in late 80’s. First $1500 buys it. Everything works, but tarnished from being stored in a studio that was heated with wood stove.Totally clean in the inside other than very little dust.When I plug in with speaker… all seems to work. All instruments sound perfect and work, including the loud and soft keys. I didn’t notice any scratchy sound on knobs other than when the main volume is turned almost all the way down. I think minor cleaning would solve that.Now… I bought this new in the Mid 80’s… they JUST came out when I bought it. I played around with the programming of it, and I either am not remembering how to clear written programs, or it might have a internal battery that needs replacing. Or, maybe it has issues. My point is that I know everything works, but I don’t know 100% if the programing memory thing works. Probably does, but I don’t have time to re-learn this unit. It’s not supper use friendly.

Any in 100% perfect shape are over $2500
Will sell this as is for $1500. Cash only… no pay pal.
NOTE: I personally think an old item like this is better viewed in person. No returns, sale is final, so you get what you get. Cash and carry, no shipping offered.
