Roland TR-808 mod/repair

Posted by in mods & repairs, News

After decades i was able to aquire this gem in my hometown.

Switchboard and transistors on the mainboard for driving LEDs were faulty and some switches needed a replacement.

I decided to modify it non destructive as possible with the following mods i did to the RC-808 and the yocto clone alteady.

BD tune

SD tune, snappy decay

CL/Rim tune

CP reverb

Noise level

Metal noise overdrive

Metal tune

Noise/Metal Hat switch

OH CH choke off switch

CYM short decay switch

I made the same Mod for my friend Break SL and some Mods+Midi (CHD) for Mr. Incognito.
