Mint Roland TR-808 (1983) In Original Packaging On eBay

Gear fanatics, make sure you’re sitting down for this one. Because not only is this Roland TR-808 drum machine fresh out of 1983, its also in its original packaging.

The Roland TR-808 is the signature beatbox that was used in most R&B and hip-hop productions as well as a lot of dance and techno music.  However, most currently available versions carry-over the wear and tear of 20+ years.

Attention: If you’ve been looking to get into the analog-gear game or add a gem to your collection – this will likely arouse your interest. The trouble is that this sale is not directed towards the typical consumer, with the unit pricing in at a whopping £10,000 on eBay

Included are the original Japanese manuals, dust cover overlay, and an unused foot switch – which most people have never seen.
