Honey, I Shrunk The Roland TR-808! Just Kidding, It’s a Flash Drive

by Hazel Chua

Music lovers and enthusiasts will remember the Roland TR-808, that was actually one of the first programmable drum machines ever made.

It was introduced in the early 1980s, which actually makes it several years older than I am. And while this Roland TR-808 Flash Drive can’t really help you lay down some beats, it sure looks a lot like the real thing.

Since it’s a USB drive, you can expect it to be really small in size, but that doesn’t make it lacking in detail whatsoever, no sirree.


Skeptical? Then check out the photo below of a real Roland TR-808 and compare it to the photos of the flash drive above and get ready to be pleasantly impressed:

Now, do you agree?

The Roland TR-808 Flash Drive is available from Alkota Beats and is priced at $39.99 (USD). It’s a bit pricier than other 8GB flash drives, but hey, none of those actually look like the Roland TR-808 so that sort of makes it worth it, right? Right.
