Roland TR-808 mod/repair
Here is my final take on modification of 808´s. After building different clones the original is here – finally. I will perform this mods in the external breakout box with non destructive wiring, everything is reversible.
Mod price incl. material is 808€ (plus CHD/Kenton MIDI Kit if preferred)
Mods can be switched on/off to original state:
BD Tune, BD Env1/2,
SD OSC1 Pitch, SD Snappy Decay,
Clap Reverb Vol,
Hihat/Cym Metal/Pink Noise Switch,
Metal Pitch (HH,CYM,COW)!!

Complete Run-through here:
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.
SD tune, snappy decay
Metal noise overdrive
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.
