  • Drum machines, synths etc and where to buy them

    I wanna buy some cheap, second hand gear. I guess ebay and other online places is where I'll end up but does anyone know anywhere in London which is likely to sell second-hand electronic music stuff? Someone suggested a place on Denmark St to check out so that's on the list - but is there anywhere else?

    Don't know if Charly still checks in here, but he's got a flat full of that gear, he'd know. Maybe PM him?

        If you dont mind the scuzz of Cash Converters they can have some very well priced equipment I though too long about an MPC and it went for £300. You could also look at some of the cheap yet new analog/ vertual analog equipment that has been quite well recieved.

          Try SoundonSound reader's ads. Can be a bit hit and miss but worth a try.

          Alternatively Gumtree has always come up with some good stuff.

            Charly is his user name. Came up to the Motorik Club with me.

              i don't know if you're familiar with the korg volca series, but IMO they're a great and fun way to enjoy some analogue drum, bass and synth noodling. and they're cheap.



              i don't know if you're new to the analogue synth game or not. but i found it pretty difficult to come up with a synth i really really liked. too often i didn't really get into what i tried or bought.
              going down the random ebay way might leave you with 10 synths of which you just like one...

                Amazing really! They're about the size of a Stylophone, which is where I came in and promptly left the world of electronic music making!

                  Had a quick look in the one near me yesterday but couldn't see anything, I will persevere.

                    I asked this same question on facebook and this one got mentioned by Tom from the Horrors - so that's two votes on this one.

                      Oh did he, were we introduced? My memory is shocking - sorry.

                        The Volcas are brilliantt, have a look at the ARIA range from Roland as well.

                          If you've got a bit of spare time on your hands and you can solder:

                          Roland TR-808 Clone "Yocto"

                          Cheaper than buying the original.

                            Anyone used these Pocket Operator things? I might spring for one of those when I get paid.

                              Which one though? They look like fun.
