Also for sale a Roland TR 808 in perfect condition for an instrument this old - everything works 100%. It comes with printed manual found on the net.

I'm selling because I need the money for a laptop for my studies and want to try to produce in a software enviroment.

I only accept International money orders, Cashiers Checks, Western Union and the likes, as I've had bad experiences with Paypal before.

As you all know, the Akai Professional MPC2500 Music Production Center combines a 64-Track MIDI Sequencer with a 32-voice 16bit Stereo Digital Sampler. The MPC is a rock solid sequencing and drum programming machine with 16 velocity and pressure sensitive rubber pads. The unit allows you to sample more efficiently. The composition center is contained in one extremely powerful desktop unit.

The TR-808 is a classic drum machine that used analog synthesis to create its sounds. The sounds have a very thin and pure quality and aren't grungy like it's successor the TR-909. In fact, the 808 has become the signature beatbox used in most R&B and hip-hop as well as a lot of dance and techno music. Booming bass kicks, crispy snares and that annoying cowbell sound made famous during the 80's are all part of the 808 and its famous sound.
