A Masterclass of the Roland TB-03 with A Guy Called Gerald

Thursday 28th June 3.30 - 5pm

In 1981 Roland Corporation released the TB-303, the bass guitar simulator soon found a surprising new job in the hands of DJ Pierre and A Guy Called Gerald. Acid House as we knew it was born. 

Breaking beats since 1988, A Guy Called Gerald has been an iconic name in the electronic music scene worldwide for over 25 years. One of the UK’s finest, most respected, innovative and forward thinking home-grown electronic music producers.

Product Specialist for Roland Corporation David Ahlund gave a masterclass of the TR-8S, the main focus being the TB-03  (Acid!) and talked about the history behind Rolands part in the genre.

A Guy Called Gerald discussed his involvement in the Acid House era and how the technology and collaborations with brands such as Roland made an impressive impact on the music scene.

This was a free event.
