Linn Linndrum LM-2 with MIDI for sale. This one's been sold but we may have another we can prepare for you - email us.
This unit was fully refurbished over dozens of hours and is performing exactly as it should, unlike most - no excuses here! In additional to our usual extensive overhaul, this one's got newly fabricated fader pcbs with brand new flawlessly functioning faders. Why? Well, most Linndrum faders have at least some degree of wear and tear after decades of use that results in glitchy behavior, even after proper cleaning. There were no drop in fader replacements for these faders, so we had new circuit boards designed to accommodate brand new faders. This was a serious pain and something that we don’t believe any other sellers have invested in. The results are perfectly working faders, free of crackle and dropouts, and a Linn you can actually use without trying to find workarounds. You won't find a better working one out there, and this and the value of the time we invested is reflected in its significantly higher than usual price. Note that the strip that normally contains labels for the jacks on the bottom of the back panel is missing from this unit - this is how we got it.
Here's a video of this particular Linndrum in action, programmed by the world-famous Jay Wires:
The Linn Drum LM2 drum machine is probably the most famous of the digital drum machines from the 1980s. Its tight, punchy sounds, ease of use and solid quantization made it most 80s musicians 1st choice. Its shuffle feature had a very human quality to it which was unmatched at the time and still highly regarded today! Features a mixer - volume and panning controls for each drum sound, tuning for some and decay adjustment for the hihats (very useful!). This thing really sounds great. If youre into retro drum machines and dont have one of these, you should really consider it. If you want to reproduce the sounds of the 80s, this is the machine for you! We love this machine and wouldnt part with it if we didnt have another one. :) This machines sounds are stored on EPROM chips. If you grow tired of the internal sounds (we could never get tired of them!) you can replace the internal sounds with other sounds on EPROM chips. Weve seen these available from time to time or you could always burn your own if you have an EPROM burner.
