Emu SP1200 Reissue
For sale is a rare Emu SP1200 sampling drum machine. Very clean excellent shape with only minor signs wear. No funky smells or worn rusty parts here, looks and plays great. We serviced and cleaned all buttons and pads so everything triggers perfectly. The internals are especially spotless, it was opened up and serviced for the first time in its life with us here at the shop (warranty seal was still in tact before we opened it up). Don't believe we have ever seen cleaner internal electronics than this one. Looks like this was not used much over the years. 100% fully functional, screen is bright and disk drive works great. Everything is working as it should. Includes power cable, 5 sound disks to get you started including sounds sampled direct from legendary drum machines Roland TR-808, TR-909, TR-606, TR-727 and SP-12. We have additional sound library disks available for extra cost, message us if interested. It will be well packed for the trip. Hard to find an SP1200 in this clean condition without all the typical wear and with all the buttons/pads serviced. Don't pass this up.
The SP-1200 is one of the greatest drum machines ever made, classic gritty 12-bit sound. This reissue version has the worldwide switchable power and round power-on button model 7030 with the SSM2044 filter chips (most desirable version). It doesn't get hot like the originals or have power supply issues, can easily & automatically convert voltage for worldwide use, and being a later reissue will have less years and age on the unit than the older models. Judging from the serial number it is a 1997 reissue. Buying a cleaner reissue machine like this one is a much better investment as it will hold its value and more likely to go up in price over time. Classic 12-bit drum machine sampler, the sound and groove of these is unmatched!
