    BOSS DR-3 reviews

    DR-3 Dr. Rhythm Drum Machine is rated 2.0 out of 5 by 1.
    Rated 2 out of 5 by from Difficult to work. I find the pre-programed rhythm patterns difficult to use when playing my piano. I have yet to figure out the bars in the tunes , even after calling for tech assistance.
