ROLAND MC303 Groovebox Classic Drum Synth...for sale!

This Roland MC303 Groovebox is in first class condition - only ever having light home use (I've never gigged it). It's a great synth - recreating loads of vintage drum machine sounds - from the TB-303 through the TR-808 and TR-909, as well as classic Bass / synth sounds. See http://www.geocities.com/wjdegraaf_geo/mc303/tonelist.html for a full list.

It's got midi ports to hook it up to a Mac / PC, or direct to a midi keyboard, and used as sound module. It can also be used as a standalone sequencer to produce whole tracks on the box alone.

Everything on it works - if you know your synths you'll know what this amazing little powerhouse is capable of. I don't have the original box or manual anymore, just the unit and original power supply, but you can get the whole manual online at Planet 303. It is completely unmarked and I will box it up nicely for shipping.
