My new toy has arrived!

Inspired by the video on George Lazenbleep’s excellent haha-fresh website I recently bought a Boss DR-110 drum machine on ebay. It’s the last analogue machine Roland made, and it arrived today!

First impressions are that it’s got some cool 606/808 type sounds but that kick drum is far too wimpy to be of any real use. Fortunately, the net is rife with various weird and wonderful modifications including one which adds some much needed boost to the kick drum.

Time to fire up the soldering iron!
