What in your dirty wee opinions are the best drum machines?
I've priced a few in Marcus and Matchetts and the cheapest is £129.99.
Any got any recommendations?
Those Zoom Rhythm tracks are superb value. Get one. The slightly more expensive 323 is the one (around £170), but the 123's very good also.
does the 123 not have bass?
the bass is pretty wick really; it'd be valueful to get the cheaper one;
plus it looks nicer too :-)
The Feline Dream use a Cheetah Specdrum,
a Roland CR78 CompuRhythm
a Roland TR808 Rhythm Composer
an Oberheim DX digital drum machine
and an Roland R8 also.
I maintain that the CR78 is the best of all of these,
and I believe that our version of "BABY'S ON FIRE" this Xmas
demonstrated this admirably....
korg er-1's are amazing and i think u can pick them up for about £170 2nd hand now, bout £230 new.
elektron's new machinedrum is outstanding but will be well outta most's price ranges. [url="http://www.elektron.com"]www.elektron.com[/url]
as vintage stuff goes, good stuff u can pick up cheaply on ebay and the like:
roland tr series
The TR series is a bit limited,being very stylised with Eastenders sounds, and also in editing, especially with minimal resolution.
