i own a roland tr-55 drum machine. i bought it in bowling green, ky for $20 at a flea market. it is a great peice of gear, very simple to use and it sounds amazing,i have used it on demos as well as final recordings. i have sampled the sounds to program my own beats. probably my favorite drum machine next to the old synsonics programmable i have.

Pull off the backplate and tweak the trimpots... you can get an 808 booooom bass (decay can be almost infinite, but you can't tune it - pity)

Typical Roland analog snare, hats, toms, claves. Beautiful.

It's big. Real wood and aluminum slabs. Tons of analog circuitry and trimpots. All preset, but hundreds of combinations and permutations, plus a very cool "mix" knob that adds much more variation.

Do I like it? Oh yeah!

Yeah I just picked one up at a pawn shop --I have to bang it periodical to get it out of oscillation.

sounds cool uptempo --especially through some pedals --big muff, roland phase II and a delay

really tempermental but cool.
