The Roland TR-909 drum machine used by Thomas Bangalter of Daft Punk is now up for sale
The French electro-pop duo have created memorable tracks over the years leaving a deep impact on electronic music, so it’s no surprise offers for Bangalter’s drum machine continue to go up. In fact, an original TR-909s could cost £ 1,500 but an interested buyer has already offered £10,000!
An online gear shop called Vintage & Analogue Occasion, the current owner of the TR-909, posted the listing to Facebook last week that reads: “Needless to say, it’s a collector’s item, so it’s impossible to set a price. We will sell it to the highest bidder.”
It also includes the original presets used to produce the famous tracks ‘Homework’ and ‘Revolution 909’.
