However, the Gear4music extended warranty scheme provides an enhanced service, and is designed to offer a higher level of protection than many 'free' warranties offered by some retailers and manufacturers.

The highlights of this enhanced warranty service are:

  • Warranty is extended to 5 years from the date of delivery.
  • Our Money Back guarantee is extended from 30 days to 90 days (terms apply after 30 days)
  • Collection and delivery costs are included for the first two years
  • Claim 50% cash back on the cost of the policy after 5 years if it has not been used!
  • Warranty is transferable if the item is re-sold
  • Loan or replacement equipment will be provided if the product isn't repaired within 30 days
  • If an item can not be repaired, a similar alternative product or cash discount (as defined in this policy) will be offered
  • The policy can be cancelled within 30 days, and at any time after that for a pro-rata discount

Please note that this extended warranty is currently only available on products sold within the EU or EEA, and is subject to the terms and conditions as detailed on the extended warranty certificate provided.

For customers in outlying areas of the country, the price of the Extended Warranty may be marginally higher, due to the potential for higher collection and redelivery transport costs.

This enhanced warranty is in addition to the standard Gear4music and manufacturer warranty policies, and the Gear4music terms and conditions of trade. No statement or condition of sale contained within these terms affects or restricts your statutory rights as defined under the Consumer Contracts Regulation 2014.

  • Comments from customers who bought this item:

The Volca Series offers the ideal introductory synthesizers, giving you unlimited sonic enjoyment and letting you create a diverse array of sounds that can only be obtained through an analog synth. Volca Beats gives you real analogue sounds created with reference to classic rhythm machines.

Analog rhythm machines continue to dominate the stage, bringing thick sounds that have the power to stand up to guitar and acoustic drums, still indispensable for track-making and live performance. Volca Beats gives you analogue drums, plus the easy-to-use step-sequencer of the Electribe, so you can turn your inspiration into reality and generate beats with the best high-quality sounds.

Volca Beats provides six of the sounds for which the greatness of analogue shines most clearly - Kick, Snare, Hi Tom, Lo Tom, Closed Hi Hat and Open Hi Hat. Created with reference to classic rhythm machines and indispensable to dance music, these new powerful sounds can only be brought to justice on an analog machine.

For the sounds that need something more than analog, a PCM sound engine is used. Clap, Claves, Agogo and Crash are reproduced by Volca Beats' PCM, which has attention to detail with a rough, lo-fi '80s sound.

The step-sequencer, distilled from the Electribe, is designed to make editing easy. Add or remove parts intuitively with the 16 step keys and play the touch panel keyboard to record in real-time. Store up to 8 sequence patterns on internal memory.

Use the Stutter Function to dramatically expand your live performance possibilities by adding drum rolls or delay-like effects, completely transforming the feel of the pattern as well as a fill when switching patterns. Active Step function and Step Jump function generate new beats by inserting or removing steps, allowing for more dynamic performances.

Connect Volca Beats with the rest of the Volca Series or a Monotribe using the Sync Jack. A MIDI-in connector lets you synchronise with other devices, play the Volca from any MIDI keyboard and send note messages from your DAW.

The Volca Beats analog rhythm machine has a compact size and a built-in speaker, easily playable any time, anywhere. The ideal starter-synth.
