The Kitchen Sync

After a lot of extensive testing and part replacement I’m happy to say that the din sync problem is thankfully now resolved on the second TR-808. I’m now working on a second problem I found while testing this machine, the cowbell. It wasn’t sounding correct in my ears, so I did a few tests, changed a few parts and I think I’ve now backed the problem into a corner. Of course I wont be sure of that until I change a few more parts, but I’m hoping that I’ll resolve this soon so that I can get on and fit the second retro kit. Waiting in the wings for repairs/renovation is an Oberheim 8 voice, the MC-202 and a revisit to the Arp Odyssey.
