Linn Drum - a BAD "gear day"


Recommended Posts

does anyone here own or know someone who owns a Linn Drum? [img]http://www.synthmuseum.com/linn/lindrum01.jpg[/img] well, mine refuses to 'boot up' (for lack of a better term).... i turn it on, and all the LEDs light up and stay lit, and the numerical displays show zeros.... that's all the damn thing does now.. is there something i can do to make it work again? or am i hosed? (it has batteries inside, does it need new batteries?) i am truely heartbroken :( it may have not been the best sounding drum machine, but it did have great sounds...and i kick myself in the ass for not sampling all the sounds before it decided to die on me. :mad: this is a bad gear day :(

I know an drummer who is pretty knowledgeable on these things - he would surely know where to get service - there apparently is somewhere that specializes in all sorts of mods and upgrades. They are cool - he brought his over for some perc O/Ds a few weeks ago and he could get it to do anything. His looked somewhat different than the photo - gray I think. email me if ya like and I'll give him a ring. update: this has to be the place and his looked similar to the photo there. http://www.piumasoft.com/client/forat/drummachines/9000.htm

Hey Sactog. I used to have a Linndrum before it was stolen about 10 years ago. I had loaned it to my bass player. He had it for about 9 months when I asked for it back. He had it in his garage, a community garage at that, unlocked. It was stolen of course. His insurance gave me $200. I really wasn't very happy. When I needed repair work done it was Forat Electronics who had taken over Linn. They were actual employees who took responsibility and further developed what they could of the machine. Sorry I don't have a number or address. I have no idea whether they're still around. Good luck! You sure that's not mine? ;-)

All the best,

My Linn spends most of it's time relaxing in the mic closet, but does come out occaisionally for a track or two. I would suggest FORAT, and they are still in business. http://www.forat.com/drummachines/ [img]http://www.gymusic.com/pix/LinnDrum.jpg[/img]

Those guys at FORAT are the most indicated to ask. The have been servicing LINN machines since 1986 and they even got permission to "remake" a LINN machine and call it a "Forat 9000". Just check'em out.
