LinnDrum LM-2

“For your consideration, we have a serviced LinnDrum LM-2 that includes the midi upgrade, installed by J.L. Cooper. The unit comes from a private studio of a colleague of ours who uséd in on many recordings. It had not been uséd for some time, so we did a deep clean on the unit, and then ran the unit. It worked, but there were some sounds that were not working, and some of the pots and faders needed cleaning. So, first off we checked all pots and faders, and serviced them. All socketed chip contacts were cleaned. As mentioned, there were several sounds not working, which we traced to faulty microchip U87. We installed a socket and new chip, which solved the issues. The unit’s power supply was fully recapped, and a new battery tray with rechargeable batteries were installed on the auxiliary board. The original side panels showed some wear, so we fabricated new ones. The unit is now fully functional again, and needs to be put to work by the next owner.

The unit has 11 Zif quick-change adapters installed on the board sockets to facilitate swapping eProm sound chips for the following sounds:

Conga 1, Conga 2, Tom 1, Tom 2, Sidestick, Snare, Tambourine, Cabasa, Claps, Cowbell, and Bass

Physically the unit is in very good condition for its age. There are some light scratches on top, and some spots and blemishes, but no dents or signs of abuse. Overall the unit presents itself very well. See pictures for further details on the inside, and outside of the unit.

We don’t have the original box for this unit, but we take packaging and shipping seriously. We spare no expense and use heavy duty boxes, several inches of polyethylene foam on all sides of the unit, and use water activated, fiber reinforced tape on all seams.” Click here to visit listing on eBay

” You are buying a Clean One-Owner! A Classic! (Serial # 724). I’ve included all the original paper work (Original Owners Manual, the Forat Electronics Linn Midi Retrofit documentation such as Installation/Owner’s Manual with schematics plus quick-start User’s Manual, Version 2 and 3 Software update data sheets and a few dated advertising items. Sorry, I can’t remember what the 33-1/3rd disc is all about. 🙂

Unit has a new battery. I replaced the ‘Clap’ chip with an alternate ‘Bass’ chip. Unit has been stored for some time, hence the volume potentiometer has a slight scratchy sound when adjusted. The last photo (box) is for show only. It’s the original carton/packaging container. It is NOT included with this sale.” Click here to visit listing on eBay

LinnDrum LM-2

“This is the machine that changed the way popular music was made in the 80’s. Artists like Prince, the Cars, the Human League & countless Hip Hop stars relied heavily on this instrument. This drum machine has a brand new dtronics power supply board. The original power supply boards in these machines always fail. My local electronics expert was very impressed with the engineering and construction with this instrument. He said the power supply board was incredibly easy to install. The original preprogrammed rhythms are always erased when the power supply fails. I have personally recorded and saved 15-20 new beats into the machine and can assure you that all the functions, faders and controls are working w/out any issues. I am not a drummer or remotely good at programming electronics (I have difficulty w/ a television remote). That said, if I can operate this machine, anyone can”

LinnDrum LM2

“This is the legendary Linn Drum from the early 1980s. Everything works except the kick drum button. This problem and any others can be perfectly repaired by a Linn Drum repair specialist I know of, and he can also add MIDI to it. Last year I was going to send my Linn Drum to him to repair the problem, plus to add MIDI, but COVID hit and a lot of my gigs were getting canceled and I was on the road and I never got around to sending the drum machine to him. Now, I’ve decided to just sell it as is, at a substantial discount. If I can’t sell it as is I will send it to be repaired and have the MIDI added to it, but the selling price will go up a couple of thousand dollars. If you purchase it as is, and send it in yourself to be repaired, the cost of repair will be substantially lower than that. I can give you the information of the repair technician on request.”” Click here to visit listing on eBay
