Studio Electronics "Harvey" Rack-mount Roland TR-808 Drum Machine w/ MIDI #38149

Availability: In stock




BRAND: Studio Electronics

MODEL: "Harvey" TR-808

FUNCTION: Rackmount Drum Machine

PRODUCT DESCRIPTION: This listing is for a Studio Electronics "Harvey" Rackmount 808 Drum Machine from the personal gear collection of producer Rhett Lawrence. Super Rare! 


  • Serial #051921
  • Features MIDI I/O

ACCESSORIES INCLUDED: This item comes as seen in photos, and does not include any accessories.

PHYSICAL CONDITION: Very Good - Some light rack rash on the top panel, but all control are in excellent condition. Buttons, toggle switches and control knobs are all fully intact and in fine shape. Overall condition is excellent.

WORKING CONDITION: Very good - All controls, buttons, functions, programming and I/O are in perfect working order. Two issues to note is that the closed and open Hi-Hat sound is low in volume coming out of the main outs as well as the individual outs. At full volume it is about 50% of what it should be. They tend to get buried if you like cranking the bass and snare. Also, the clap sound seems to have a crunchy artifact that decays slowly after the clap sound triggers. It sounds cool as an effect, but it is present no matter how the tone or volume is adjusted.

All other sounds, including Kick and Snare sound amazing as expected.
