Some collectors will pay $ for this because of the rarity combined with what is still the best feel and sound quality made ie Prince and his LM-1s. You can just change the sound chips to allow it to sound more contemporary by substituing the usual cheesy Roland drum sounds instead of the stock sounds.

I'd suggest the more common Linndrum. Only a few differences while retaining the same superior sound quality and feel:

-LM-1 has individual tuning of each drum sound, Linndrum has a universal, internal tuning knob. Only a few of the Linndrum sounds can be individually tweaked. Not a big deal to most. -Most of the sounds are the same, excepting the kick and bongo sounds as two examples. The Linndrum kick's better and is the classic Linn bass drum you'll hear on records; still better than anything i've heard since in terms of realism and weight. -Linndrum's much smaller and is inexpensive to buy because realistic drum sounds have been out of vogue for decades since the House/cheesy Roland drum sounds became so prominent. In the old daze you only got a Roland drum machine if you couldn't afford a Linndrum or Oberheim. -Cheesy Roland drum sound chips can be used in a Linndrum or LM-1 so that you can sound just like everyone else..
