Reluctant sale <-- that's an understatement.

I found this 5 years ago & won a bidding war with an Australian.. this machine in in complete working order (I even have the manual!). VERY RARE - released in 1980, this is an iconic drum machine...

Used by: NWA, Public Enemy, Ice T, Run DMC, 2 Live Crew through to todays producers - Kanye West, RZA, Spank Rock, etc, etc.

This is one of 2 (possibly 3) in NZ, as mentioned - this is a relcutant sale, a looming mortgage means it has to go.

For those that don't know or haven't used one - it's a simple analogue drum machine made which was huge in the 80's, you would have heard the sounds - cowbell, clap, smooth big kick drum.

I don't want to swap & the start price is reserve... it's 32 years old, I'm confident you won't see these for sale very often in NZ!

Someone will have a new proud piece of equipment in their studio...

good luck...
