1980's Boss DRP-1 Dr Pad Vintage Drum Machine w/Box
Regular price $169.00 AUD
Loaded with a bunch of really fun drum tones (like many of those from the famous 808 and 707 models from Roland). Includes the original box and paperwork.
From a late 1980's magazine article:
The Dr. Pad is the latest in a long line of percussion accessories marketed by Roland's Boss division, best known for their compact effects pedals. It's not just the guitarist, however, who has benefitted over the years from the good value generally offered by Boss designs, for many will remember with some affection the original DR55 Dr Rhythm - the first affordable programmable drum machine.
The Boss percussion pad first saw the light of day under the 'Amdek' label, an ill-fated attempt to attract the impecunious punter with a range of self-assembly effects. The Amdek drum synth and clap generator were the first units to take the form we now see on the new Dr. Pad. These were both based on analogue synthesizer circuits, but the Boss Dr. Pad for the first time fits PCM sampled sounds into a compact unit. Sample pads have been offered in the past by Sweden's D-Drum and a few other companies, but the Boss approach is by far the most economical, with the range of three Dr. Pads each offering a choice of six varied sounds.
Most of these sounds will be familiar to users of the Roland TR707 and TR727 Latin drum machines, although the variable parameter controls available on the Dr. Pads can take them way beyond anything available on these machines.
