“Great sounding JD 800 synth. It’s in Florida now after the last 17 years in a studio. All keys and sliders/knobs work. Selling as is with a small ding on the back over power cable. (see photo) A drum kit card and Standard preset card included. This keyboard can also work in multimode and read 6 midi tracks simultaneously from a sequencer.” Link

“This listing is for a Roland JD-800 Programmable Synthesizer. Some syrupy liquid was spilled on the synth keys (I’m assuming coke) and it has caused keys to stick together. Also, the weights under the keys have mostly come out of place due to the syrup. It doesn’t appear to have had it spill anywhere except onto the keys. I don’t have a power supply to to test if it still powers on. This synth was found in a storage auction of a former musician. This synth is being sold FOR PARTS or REPAIR.” Link

“The main problems are the aftertouch doesn’t seem to work, the outputs have a quiet buzz and the volume slider is a bit crackly. The output buzz is the main issue and is only present on the outputs, not when using headphones. It wasn’t really an issue for me because it only becomes noticeable at loud volumes. Other than these issues everything works fine. Bought it a few weeks ago from an online music store but the sound isn’t really for me so I’m looking to get a Roland JX-3P instead. There’s a couple of marks but overall it’s in great condition. Postage is quite expensive because of the size and weight of the synth. Also includes the Standard drums & percussion ROM card and PCM card.” Link

jd8000“This JD-800 is the victim of both the red glue issue as well as the green contact strip separation issue. Also, it does not output sound, even via MIDI. It needs a new main board, at least. Not only does the main board not output sound, but two of the three white molex connectors are broken. The four rubber feet are missing from the bottom of the unit. The plastic end pieces are scratched up, but the main front panel isn’t too bad.” Link

used roland jd800 “For sale: Roland JD 800

Sounds great, no crackles or pops on outputs

All sliders and buttons work

Keyboard works, all keys trigger, send velocity and global aftertouch

Issues:

One of the black keys transmits 127 velocity all the time

Pitchbend/mod joystick doesn’t transmit mod

It takes a lot of pressure to trigger aftertouch. I own other keyboards which require much less pressure, I don’t know if it’s by design or a faulty keyboard

The internal battery needs to be changed

Beyond that, this synth is awesome.” Link

For sale legendary Roland JD800 synthesizer. 100% works!!!

New contact board was installed

The common problem with all JD800’s synthesizers is contact ribbon, you can see it on my picture. Sooner or later, all JD800 will have this problem. This contact ribbon consists of the two parts, and they begin to have a problem after a while. That’s why some keys stop working. New contact board was installed in my keyboard, which consists of one piece. Rolland sells this new ribbon board for $460.

This synthesizer is in 100% working condition. Very clean . All keys work, all buttons work, amazing sound. If you are musician, not a furniture collector, this instrument is for you. Comes with a power cable.” Link

usedjd800 “Roland JD-800 Programmable Synthesizer

Excellent condition. I refurbished the keyboard, so no clicking or sticking of keys. In fact, I used the newer one piece green contact strip, instead of the older two-piece. Everything works as far as I can tell from running diagnostics and playing. Sliders, knobs, and buttons work well. Power cord included.

This JD has the small mod that lightens up the aftertouch, so you don’t have to press as hard to get the aftertouch to sound.

There is one main cosmetic issue, but it’s in the back of the unit. At the back of the left-hand side, there is a dent. You can see it to the right in the picture that shows the audio connections. Of course, this is out of site when you’re playing it. Also, there is a hairline scratch at the top, left part of the front panel, but it’s hard to see. Some of the keys are a little more yellow than others, and some have very small chips in the front, but that just adds to its character.” Link

jd-800-project-machine “This JD800 was broken by UPS about 15 years ago, when the notoriously fragile left panel was shattered. After years and years of searching, I recently found and installed a replacement, but some of the buttons on the upper left are missing, and most don’t function. It’s missing screws to secure it and the side panel back onto the synth. It’s also missing the slider for the main volume- it’s left at full volume.

To make it even more interesting, I left the air conditioning off this summer in the studio when not in use, and all of the key weights came unglued.

All the key weights are there, under the keys, but a hand full are stuck.

It’s a project.

It still plays, and when hooked up via midi, the engine is completely intact and functions as it should. The main audio outputs are working, but the headphone out is only sending to one side.”

jd-800 “DESCRIPTION – This listing is for a ROLAND JD-800 Digital Keyboard Synthesizer w/ Road Case.

Keyboard Weight: 33 lbs.
Keyboard Dimensions: 41″ x 16.5″ x 4.5″

ACCESSORIES – This item includes an ATA Road Flight Case and IEC power cable, otherwise, it comes only as seen in photos; does not include any other accessories.

PHYSICAL CONDITION – Good. A few of the keys are loose, there are missing screws from chassis (the hinged top opens unrestrained) and the item shows signs of normal wear.

Road Case Condition: Good. A&S Road Case shows normal signs of wear but structure is solid and intact. Interior foam is in decent condition though it has begun to peel away from the top side.

WORKING CONDITION – Fair: The keyboard (manual) itself is in rough shape, the highest key is broken (included separate), three keys are dead, two more have no spring but still trigger, while the whole keyboard feels very worn with certain sections being less sensitive than others. All the slider controllers tested working well, though a few may need some contact cleaning to improve performance. The synthesizer seemed to function well otherwise responding to all the various slider adjustments, settings and program changes. ”

From a smoke free studio and will come with both original manuals in great shape!

Two small issues; one of the rubber feet seems to have gone missing, never noticed that, probably because I had it on a keyboard stand.
Also, as pictured, one tiny scratch on the synth in a similar area to where one key has a little chip both are barely noticeable.

I cannot stress enough how good this one is. The keyboard is excellent, no stickiness and plays wonderfully.
What more can I say?” Link

Overall , fair condition. Couple of sliders can be jumpy, but they work. There is a dance drums card included & manuals & plug. ” Link

JD-800, Roland @ 19 June 2016, Comments Off on Roland JD-800

used jd800 ” You are looking at a Roland JD800 keyboard. I have owned it for less than a year and barely used it. I bought it on ebay, and my guess is that it has had a few owners, at least one who cared for it, and at least one one who didn’t. At some point it has had the infamous red glue issue fixed – the glue on the key weights is clear. So either the keys were replaced, or more likely, the glue was removed and clear glue was used. On the other hand, cosmetically it is a bit of a mess. It is scratched and not in the greatest condition to look at. I have tried to show this in the pictures.

All the keys work, all the sliders appear to work, all the sounds seem to be the original sounds, and it works via midi. The audio jacks are fine. Sometimes the bank / patch buttons require a little effort but they all change as they should. The volume control crackles when you move it, but thats probably because it was left at full volume at all times and is fine if left alone.

However, I do not know how to program the JD800, and I have never tried. It is possible that there are problems there, but if so, I have not come across them. I have never tried to do any sound creating or editing on it except using the sliders. I hooked it into my studio via midi, and used various presets a few times for a specific project, and that was the extent of my use. I have never used the headphone jack, not inserted the extra sounds you can get on data or waveform cards as I do not have them.

So honesty compels me to say I am not certain that this unit is fully functional. And for this reason, I am starting the auction cheaply and selling it “as is”.

It comes with a gig bag that is fine but has also seen better days, and the power cable. I do not have the manual.

This is a heavy keyboard. It will be sent very well packed via UPS ground. I usually send items out with 24 hours of receiving payment. I will message you tracking details, and send insured and will require a signature upon delivery – this protects both the buyer and the seller. ” Link

rolandjd800 “The Stranglers’ Roland JD800

Classic vintage digital synth used by Dave Greenfield for many live shows
between approx 1998 – 2006.

This was Dave’s backup JD800 which has seen many miles of road and gigs.
Being his ‘number 2’ it is in surprisingly good cosmetic condition due to
the fact that although it traveled to every show it rarely came out of the flight case.
It was, however, used many times by Dave and as you can see by the pics
still contains all his programmed patches for various songs for the live set with that keyboard rig.

PLEASE NOTE
Over time, however, it has now developed some faults:
It has 6x dead/sticky keys which is a common symptom of Roland synths of that era.
One of the edit faders (TVA Envelope Release Time 4) has now become temperamental when trying to select a value.
A couple of the buttons need a harder press than they used to but still do work.

All these faults are mechanical and can be repaired if someone is willing to put the effort in but
it does still function perfectly over MIDI.

This is a HEAVY beast of a keyboard so although collection from nr Bath is preferable
we can post if required.” Link

used jd800 ” This listing is for a Roland JD 800! Red glue coming out from keys. Common problem with vintage Roland keyboards.

Here is the background on this keyboard. Acquired new, played a few times, then put it in storage for 30 years! That is exactly the description of this JD-800! It looks almost showroom clean, except, being in storage this long, the red glue that holds the counter weights in place have seeped out and stuck keys together. None of the weights appear to be lost. Most of the keys that are not stuck together play fine. It doesn’t seem to have lost its programming, but the keys will have to be attended to before you know for sure.

I do not have the time to take it apart, clean the glue and go through it. All keys go down and come back up except one, the last C. It is stuck up. Some keys play with velocity, so that needs a look too.” Link
