This drum machine looks very small, but it's sound is BIG! There's definitely some 808ish vibe in it. Anyway, you have to remember that it's sound doesn't seems impressive according to the digital devises. To reveal its full potential you have to use some compression (or distortion if you like it harder) on it.

The interface is not very convenient to use, so the manual will be your best friend at the first time, but i can close my eyes on it because of it's small size.

About the features, sequencer is able to produce polyrhithms (techno fans must like it). Also, there is an LFO which gives you more space for experiments. Moreover, all the parameters are recordable (don't forget it's an analog device!). There is different record modes and you can even record the different parameters for each step.

The quality is not perfect, there's some very tight potentiometers at the instrument volume channels, but its not critical for me.

The parcel came to Russia in 12 days (Maybe for the international post its slow, but for the Russian Post its VERY FAST, trust me!).

It's analog, it's good - but don't expect save your rig

13.10.2016
To tell you the truth I was optimistic about the Tanzbar Lite being a follow up to the MFB 522. The 808 Sound is there but it's true only for a couple of parts. The claps and snares don't really sound that good. One other thing is the tiny sequencer buttons. They were bigger and better on the 522 but a the cost of a 8 button limit rather than 16. But these buttons are too small and my fingers hurt from pressing them so much. The shift + button and complicated menu that some people talk about was no issue for me. In fact it's pretty straight forward. If it wasn't for the limited sound and annoying small buttons it would've been perfect.
