FARFISA Partner 15 Vintage....for sale!

Seller Info:
Farfisa Partner 15 Vintage Drum Machine
This drum machine has recently been isolated from a Farfisa 252RS organ. It provides a selection of warm, retro drum patterns of the bossa nova variety that frankly sound awesome! A number of dials give you control of tempo, volume, etc.
As you can tell from the picture there a number of wires emanate from the rear, this is where I have separated it from the organ. I expect the winning bidder of this machine will know what to do with them.

ACE TONE Rhythm Ace...for sale!

Seller Info:
Ace Tone FR-1 Rhythm Ace Drum Machine
All in working order
Very warm and lush analogue drum sounds
Rhythms can be edited and altered
Rhythms can be layered simultaneously
A real piece of drum machine history!
Hard to find these for sale in the U.K
I need space so I am selling it now

Dimensions :
Hight 22cm
Length 54cm
Depth 19cm

It is quite large, and quite an antique so I am reluctant to post this item so
contact me if you cant collect in person .
P.S the leather handle is now showing signs of wear and will need replacing.
It has worn through to the metal reinforcing strap .
Here is some info sourced from the web :
The Ace Tone Rhythm Ace FR-1 has a secured place in drum machine history
as the first transistorised machine to appear on the market in 1967.
The Rhythm Ace was the brainchild of Ikutaro Kakehashi,
(founder of Ace Tone and later, Roland in 1972).
With this in mind, it is fairly safe to draw the conclusion that the FR-1
was effectively the first of the Roland TR (Transistorised Rhythm)
series of drum machines.

The FR-1 effectively revolutionised the industry because prior to this,
what few drum machines there were, ran on valves and before that,
via a mechanical disc system.
Transistors must have been the "new thing" back then because
the components are even listed in the specifications...
Transistors x 38 and diodes x 107!!!

ACETONE BENTLEY RHYTHM ACE Vintage 70s...for sale!

Acetone BENTLEY RHYTHM ACE Vintage 70s Drum Machine.

Here is a fantastic vintage drum machine from Acetone - who later became Roland, this is the Bentley Rhythm Ace (yes the band was named after these!) and dates I believe from the 70s. Its a classy looking machine in a real wooden cabinet with a wooden music stand which locks in the upright position, or can fold flat.

It has buttons to select rhythms such as Rock n' Roll, Swing, Ballad, Waltz, March, etc., and a large selection of Latin rhythms, etc. The sounds are cheesy but very useable. There are sliders to control volume and tempo, and you can balance the volume of separate instruments such as bass drum, cymbals, snare, guiro & claves, or remove the instrument from the mix completely. Think Jean Michel Jarre Oxygene to get an idea of what this can do, also more modern retro music like Air. Fully analogue it has a lovely warm vintage sound.

I've cleaned and polished the cabinet, and cleaned the jack sockets and slider controls. Everything seems to be working perfectly. You can silence the output (while keeping the pattern running), or start and stop the rhythm instantly with a neat 'touch' plate on the front. There is also a start/stop socket on the back for a footswitch, but I haven't tested this.

ROLAND MC 505 Groovebox...for sale!

Roland MC 505 nurtured like a baby till it was 'tidied away' under the bed sustaining an injury to the volume knob :-(((
Good screen and rest of it working well
Needs repair - - loose volume know and I have had a look inside and it seems some solder has come off - problem is it's in a diffiult to reach place being between 2 of the circuit booards - so awkward - well beyond my skills so have to move it on - it still has mono output though this has been a bit temperamental today. I'm guessing it is an easy repair for someone who knows electronics or an electrician
If I had bought it in this condition I would have been happy to work around the limitations as I do with some of my other gear but having to go down a step in functionality doesn't work for me

It sounds amazing! This machine blows every drum machine easily away. But that's not all, it is a very elaborate sequencer and sampler!

- replacing/adjusting all drum pads

- installing a new Nicad backup battery
- enlarge the sequencer capacity to 43,000 notes
