Roland TR-606 Drumatix For Sale. Meticulously serviced by professionals (us) and in perfect working order, unlike most.
This unit was cleaned inside and out. All pots switches and jacks were cleaned, connections re-soldered, and all tact switches replaced for flawless operation (most vintage switches are bad by now and the result is lots of re-triggering that makes these unplayable. Not this one!). The DC power inlet was replaced. All functions were systematically tested and this unit is in perfect working order.
We bought this one from its original owner along with a TB-303. He had both of them stored away in their original boxes for decades. Unfortunately, as is often the case with these, the batteries leaked and did a bit of cosmetic damage. This unit comes with its original box, quick reference chart and carrying case.
The 606 rhythm machine is the brother of the famous TB-303 Bassline. Both classic instruments helped define the sound of techno. The TR-606 user interface and sound are somewhat similar to the legendary 808, but he 606 sounds a lot punchier to us. Since it's so small and runs off batteries, it's nice and portable. Its pattern sequencer is very easy to use and a great tool for composing funky rhythms. Great for techno, house, acid, industrial, synthpop and other electronic music but can also sound great in alternative rock, pop or other music.
Here's a video we made featuring a TR606 and the TB303:
