Super Drum machine
13.02.2017
I was looking for an affordable drum machine to replace my broken Roland TR-808 that I had for sometime and my difficult to program Alesis SR-16. I bought the Roland TR-8 because it's a combination of most historic idiosyncratic sounds into one box.
Having it now for four years and still happy as ever I feel good talking about it.
Very good quality piece of hardware, easy to use, affordable and even good looking in any set-up. Oh, don't forget that deep booming bass sound, the delay and reverb that can sent you into another world of music. Hmmmmm!!!!
Now I'm having it in my recording studio as my main drum machine and once in a while, I use it to jamm with friends on many music genres. The sound quality is realy good sounding, no plastic sound when playing live in live mode in a band or dj set up. I thing that its worth the money, and everybody looking for a straightforward serious drum machine, go for the Roland TR-8, you won't be dissapointed.

ROLAND TR-8
Gerard1982, 06.01.2016
Once again thomann delivered my order in a matter of days after ordering, quick and fast. On opening the roland tr-8 from its packaging which it was well secured in i found the build quality of the unit very solid and very well made, it came with just a power supply and the usual instruction manual in usb cable which is my only negative thing i can say. The rubber feet stop the unit from moving around on practically any surface it was very easy to set up and install any updates and drivers. roland have done a fine job of remaking this legendary drum machine its lives up to the original 808 in alot of ways and has many new features. i would highly recommend this to anyone.

The single most important element in any style of dance music is the ‘groove’, a chemistry of rhythm for your song that can make or break its overall feel.
