I don't know if any of you ever had the Alesis SR-16 but instead of being in everything 30 years after it's release (like the 808 that you mention) the SR-16 was used in tons of commercials immediately after it's release. it got to a point where I didn't like mine because i heard it everywhere.
808 never gets old. Lame use of the 808 does.
