This video is just a quick teardown of Roland’s seminal 808 drum machine. Nothing more, nothing less. Have a look inside the box that paved the way for so many dance classics. As Egyptian Lover says in our multi-part feature on Roland drum machines, “The 808 is the king of drum machines because nothing has lasted longer than it has. The sounds are analog passion. Nothing can compare. Long live the king! 808 forever!”
