Great rehearsal and recording unit, easy to use

  • Summary: I like simplicity in the divices I use at home and on gigs. This Boss drum machine is by far and away the most uncomplicated and easy to use "on the fly" type of unit on the market. In auto mode, it goes through four variations with fills to give a 'live" drummer vibe while you are jamming. When you are about done with the jam, press "ending," and it wraps up your song with a fill and stop very nicely.

  • Summary: The machine is creative as you are! I found it a great friend to jam with. You don't have to feed it, give it drinks, or smoke. It rocks!

Good sound but difficult programing

Tango, music123
10 January 2004
  • Summary: I am finding the programing a bit difficult. Main problem is the changes and getting them set right. I also find it difficult to select a preset style that works without some type of adjustment. Tempo is easy to set. I will be purchasing at least 1 foot switch. I am not sure if the latching or non latching switch is the best for my needs. I may end up getting the 2 foot switches in the end as 1 will start/stop programs the other switches from verse to verse.

Good value, great sound, but difficult to program.

Richard-XR6Xy, music123

  • Summary: For under $200, Dr. Rhythm is a great value. The pre-set styles with bass lines are great to jam with. The sound quality is superb. It is difficult to learn to use, particularly when programming your own songs. Plan to spend a lot of time with the manual. The payoff is worth it.

Be patient to get your rewards from the DR-3

  • Summary: I'm a rock'n'roll guitarist and got the idea to get a simple rhythm section to back me after watching a DVD of Stray Cats - they get a really primal sound from just a stand-up bass, a sparse drum kit and a singer-guitarist. I use probably a fraction of the DR-3's potential as mine is permanently switched to 'Vintage Kit', 'Acoustic', 'Natural', and of all the percussion embellishments available I tend to use only the tambourine.

Drum Box Delight ?

R. J. Pringle "musojim", amazon.co.uk
8 December 2009
  • Summary: I bought this unit simply on cost and portability knowing that it was slanted toward the " Rock Fraternity " so I was prepared to do some serious work to suit my more " Middle of the Road " tastes. On running through the 100 preset styles I found that I was only able to use about 15 of them which I copied to user slots and edited. I then imported various others from my arranger keyboards via Midi.

Boss DR3

P. F. Hall, amazon.co.uk
30 July 2009
  • Summary: The Boss DR3 does exactly what it is supposed to do. It produces good rhythm with a simple bass line. The built in presets are very good for jamming. I would recommend the addition of two foot pedals which give you the ability to start and stop the the DR3 and also move to the next pattern in the preset.If you are a guitar player the pedals are essential. You need to read the manual carefully to make your own patterns.
