It's hard to imagine modern music from the 80's onward without the ubiquitous 808 drum machine from Roland.
From the slinky sexy grooves of Sexual Healing by Marvin Gaye to the streetwise beats of Planet Rock by Afrika Bambaata and the Soulsonic Force the 808 has stamped it's mark on music history.
There's something about the way that all sounds just sit in a mix, but at the same time poke out and get noticed.
I doubt the original 808 creator Ikutaro Kakehashi could have dreamed that his humble rhythm box would have such an impact on the music world.
To help celebrate the 808 day and Ikutaro Kakehashi's rhythm box, we are doing 8% off for 8 days on the Boutique TR-08 and the TR8s!
This offer is only while we have stock, so get in while you can!
