“This auction is for a Roland D50 keyboard. I am the original owner of this vintage keyboard and purchased it back in the 80’s. This keyboard has been used only a handful of times since 1991 and has been kept in a smoke free environment, never exposed environmental extremes or stored in appropriate environments. It has literally sat on a keyboard stand in my man cave for the last two decades.
I also had the keyboard cleaned out and serviced last year at Wizard Electronics in Atlanta and replaced the internal battery as well. This is a major plus since you never know when you buy a vintage keyboard from ebay when it was last serviced or when the battery was replaced.
There are no broken pieces, broken keys, dents or major dings (outside of the bottom which has the typical wear you would expect on a keyboard) When using a RAM card, sometimes you have to jiggle it a bit but this was common with these keyboards even back in the 80s.
This keyboard comes with all of the original manuals, a sustain pedal and power cord.” Link
This is a No Reserve Auction!
Roland D-50 Linear Synthesizer
Synthesizer shows some wear from normal use and storage but for the most part it is working with some issues.
There are 10 of the Black Keys that do not produce any sound. They do not seem sticky or mushy but do not work. We marked the 10 keys with a piece of green tape. (see photos)
Comes in a nice case and includes AC Power Cord.
Synthesizer is being sold AS IS because of the above mentioned reasons.” Link
Rear panel features mono/stereo output, phones output, 4 x control pedal inputs and full MIDI in/out/thru.
This instrument has had very light use, only gigged a few times.
Full working order.
Comes complete with top grade flight case, data rom card AND full suite of original manuals, patch guides etc.
Option to collect in person (Glasgow area) or will happily courier to anywhere in UK (sorry, no overseas).
A great addition to any home or pro studio. I’ll never forget the first time I heard a D-50 in an Edinburgh music store, then live in the Usher Hall – brilliant memories make this a reluctant sale!” Link
” The synthesizer is in excellent condition considering it’s now a retro age synth.
There are no scratches; the sliders, pitchbend and joystick modifier all work without any issues.
It’ll come pre-loaded with the factory sounds, but I also have a small collection of voices in syx format which I can provide to the winning bidder.
The mains cable will be included and the manual will also be included if I can find it.” Link
Condition: good vintage shape. Keyboard powers on and all all functions are working good. all keys are working good. all functions and voices working good. I have not had this unit serviced so it may need some internal cleaning but I notice no issues or damage. there is some wear and scratches from use as seen. no case, no cartridges.” Link
” Roland D-50 Synthesizer , This unit is in good working order there are a few minor scratches nothing major and some tape resido , all keys work fine and it plays well ” Link
“Here is a parts Roland D 50 Linerar Synth. This unit does power up. It does not have out put to the amp and has a broken key. It could maybe be fixed ,but I do not wish to put the time or money into it.” Link
“Classic 80′s programmable synthesizer in very good cosmetic condition, with flight case, basic and advanced instruction manuals, programming guide and the sound card containing all the original preset sounds.
There is a wealth of information available on this classic synthesizer on google if you are interested so suffice to say here that it was Roland’s flagship synth in it’s day and the sounds it produces are still pretty amazing
Points to note -
The three keys marked by blobs of blue tack in one of the photos don’t work – probably require contacts replacing.
When switching the synth on it indicates that the internal battery needs replacing. The internal sounds don’t display properly and aren’t currently playable and I think would need to be reloaded onto the internal memory once this is done. However it displays (as can be seen in the photo) and plays the sounds off of the memory card with no problems apart from on the 3 marked keys.
Everything else, eg joystick, portamento, aftertouch seem to be working fine.
I have had this keyboard for nearly 20 years but it has been stored up in the loft in the flight case for the majority of the time since I purchased a digital piano with weighted keys. It comes from a no smoking home.’” Link
“Thanks for looking. I have a Roland D-50 for sale, in good condition. All of the keys work and it sounds great — restored to the original factory patches. It does have a couple of scratches, tape marks, and some of the menu keys require an extra push every now and then, but for a synth of this age I think it’s pretty good. I will include a printed out copy of the PDF instruction manual and the power cord. This does NOT include any memory cards. The default patches were restored via MIDI and the excellent D-50 Librarian program.
The second picture is how this looks packed, with packing peanuts poured on top afterwards. Please note to anyone that may have a foam allergy — I’m sorry, but have packed this with copious amounts of foam padding and peanuts, and will not be able to accommodate any other form of packing requests. Due to size and weight, I will only ship to the US 50 states.” Link

“This auction is for a very nice Vintage Roland D-50 Linear Synthesizer with cords, booklets, and soft gig bag. It’s in excellent condition. Everything works great but there are no sound cards. It has been taken well care of and has No cracks, chips, breaks, or repairs. The booklets are soiled and wrinkled but are complete. The gig bag has a tear and some fading and is soiled but it’s all there and works fine. The rubber head on one end of one of the cords has been shaved down a bit for some reason as shown in photo but it works just fine. The table everything is on is not included. I have posted several photos so you can see how nice it is.” Link

“Roland D-50 LA Synthesizer. This synth is from the 80′s and has those big fat sounds. This keyboard is in good shape for it’s age(almost 30 years). All keys and switches work flawlessly and the battery has just been replaced. The unit is loaded with factory patches. Once you hear a D-50 you’ll always remember those big textures and pads.” Link

“The Roland D-50 is a polyphonic 61-key synthesizer produced by Roland. It was released in 1987.
Its features include Linear Arithmetic synthesis, on-board effects, a joystick for data manipulation,
and an analog synthesis-styled layout design. The external Roland PG-1000 Programmer could
also be attached to the D-50 for more complex manipulation of sounds.
Condition is very good and everything is working properly.
The only minor thing to mention is that the small tip of the joystick on the D50 is missing, but still works fine.
The PG-1000 is very clean and works great also.

“This Roland D50 synthesizer is in good used condition with normal wear for a unit of this age (see pictures). All the keys work, the memory card slot reads correctly and all parts are intact (i.e. pitch bender, sliders, joystick). The keybed is a little “soft” due to its age but still performs well. All audio and MIDI inputs/outputs have been tested and work correctly, as well as all the face buttons. The sofware is v2.21.” Link

It has no sticky keys and all buttons and sliders are working like new.It has no visible scratches you would have to get real close to see some very small scratches.Only thing is a small dent on the right back corner which you can see on the pictures. Other than that it does not affect the functionality of the keyboard. It is used so expect to see some small wear and tear from usage over the years.” Auction ended. Click here to browse on eBay.
“This unit does NOT work and has NO power supply. If you can do electronic repairs then this would be great to fix up and flip for some money. If you can’t fix it then it would still be great to strip for parts!! Aside from the fact that the unit doesn’t work properly, the bass side of the board is separating (pictured) and there is plenty of dust and grime from storage. Due to the nature of this auction, we are selling this keyboard AS IS with NO returns accepted. We assure you that our staff will pack and ship with care and your D-50 will arrive in the same condition pictured. ” Auction ended. Click here to browse on eBay.

“hier biete ich einen gut erhaltenen ROLAND D50 zur Versteigerung.
Technische Daten sind zu Hauf im Internet zu finden. Dieses Gerät ist ein absolutes Profiinstrument, was sich schon
durch die Klangqualität und ohne Brummen bei maximaler Lautstärke beweist.
Dazu gibt es noch eine Romcardridge mit nochmal so vielen Sounds wie interne, welche je 8 Bänke mit je 8 Sounds haben.
Das Gerät eignet sich in erster Linie für Flächensounds.
Nun die Vor und Nachteile:
Um einen selbstkreierten Sound abzuspeichern, muss man einen vorhanden Werkssound “löschen”, derer selbstverständlich
später wieder hergestellt werden kann. Außer man kauft sich die teuren Cardridges.
Außerdem ist der Kasten sehr umständlich zu bedienen, wenn es eben um selbstgemachte Sounds geht.
Auf der anderen Seite, neben dem oben beschriebenen, dient der kleine “Joystick” zu schnellen Abänderungen der Sounds.
Auch die Effektsektion lässt im Grunde keine Wünsche offen.
Bevor Jemand bietet, der das Gerät nicht kennt, sollte sich im Internet die Sounds anhören.
Eine Deutsche Bedienungsanleitung und das Netzkabel sind selbstverständlich mit dabei.
Gerne kann das Gerät auch, nach testen, abgeholt werden.” Auction ended. Click here to browse on eBay.
