NAMM 2009 -Diabolical Devices TR-707

"Who would have thought that twenty-some years later the Roland TR-707 would be back at the NAMM show? We're guessing nobody did until they saw the Diabolical Devices circuit mangled TR-707 at our booth. The Diabolical 707 has a pitch control for every sound, various distortion and bit-squashing bends and a patch bay. The 707's patch bay can interact with other things like the Diabolical Devices circuit bent SK-1 or any of your CV-able gear. The great thing is that the original 707 sounds are still intact and can be completely brought back to stock. You can use it as a MIDI module too! Stay tuned for more demos from Sherman, Dirty Boy Pedals, Signal Arts and more. "


  1. Why do people insist on ruining classic gear?

  2. I'm not too fond of the TR707 sounds (except the tambourine :) but it is useful because it has MIDI and so many separate outputs. I had two and sold both of them, but I know what you mean. Many years ago I sold this minty TR606 with the carrying case, manual, everything 100%. About a week later, the kid who bought it posted how he completely hacked it to pieces in order to mod it, and couldn't get it to work.
