The owner of the Roland TR–909 drum machine has officially put the collector's item up for sale online. This very Roland drum machine has the original presets of the iconic track still loaded on the hardware. Bangalter himself was known to own many TR-909 machines, with this being the fifth in his collection.
An original TR-909 in good condition is already set at a high value for interested collectors. So a TR-909 that was owned by Daft Punk’s Thomas Bangalter and has the original presets of ‘Revolution 909’ still loaded on the hardware will naturally run at a steep price.
Bidding for the drum machine is already at €10,000 and could possibly get higher.
