Retro Fits…No Not Flared Trousers!

I’m currently retro fitting the TR-808’s we have here while also giving them a service and clean. The kits are relatively straightforward with clear instructions. Makes a change to have a clear goal when working on something, instead of trying to fix an erroneous error. Anyway here’s a couple of videos of the first fitted retro kit. They show me playing the sounds from a midi keyboard and also testing the din sync with a Roland TR-606.

The second TR-808 has a problem with din sync drift which I’m currently investigating, once I solve that I’ll be fitting the retro kit and adding some more pictures.

We use the kits from Czech company CHD Elektroservis.
