Default Roland TR-909 - finally got one

Wow. That's all I can say.

I managed to get one boxed, in brand new condition, and it will never leave my side. It's amazing.

The only issue is that the low tom doesn't work. Anyone know of anywhere to get analog synths repaired/restored?

I've also recently inherited a Roland SH-09 that needs a clean up.

The real 909 sounds unlike anything. I've got more samples than anyone could ever need, and not one does it justice.

Git. That is all.

When I got my 909 repaired I sent it to Tony Allgood @ www.oakleysound.com

He charged me 400 to fix a bust LED screen and sort out problems with my hi hats , snare drum, the memory and strange hiss coming from the unit.

He's also repaired a pretty much snapped in half 303 for me a few years ago.

If the tom isn't working and you have a bit of a clue with soldering just swap out the transistors as they're prob failing due to age. There's about 5 on each section and the circuit board is laid out with decals to what part you're looking at.
