” Rare, Roland Juno 106S, the same as a Juno 106 but with the addition of an extra amp and built in speakers. Unlike the similar HS 60 sold in the US, this version has the standard Juno 106 colors and markings. Never sold in the US. Other than the speakers, electronics are identical to the standard Juno 106.
This 106 is in near mint cosmetic condition, just a few scratches on the back near the tune knob. And the electronics are truly mint – they are all original. This is the only 106 that I have had or worked on with all original electronics, no replacements or repairs. The only repairs I made was to put in a new pair of Pioneer speakers to replace the ones that had died of old age, tighten up the speaker boxes, which always seem to get a little loose and buzzy over the years, and rewire it for 117v US power.
(Note – 100 and 117v models share the same small input board before the main transformer, so it is straight forward to move from one to the other – 220 and 240 are the same way, but moving from 100 to 220 requires a board swap out. So in this case, I did not change any original parts.)
Comes with built in power cord, which I believe is also original.
The only thing that standard 106 users may not know, is that the only way to shut off the internal amp and speakers is to put a 1/4 jack (doesn’t have to be connected to anything) into the headphone jack. There is no switch.
Nice to be able to play it without an amp, yet this one still has the standard vintage 106 look.” Link
“I purchased this unit a few months back for a recording project. Plays perfect, not sure on how many owners there were, but the way this looks and play is flawless. A few scratches on bottom (pictured) Comes with its Roland case which is the reason for a bit higher price then most of these on ebay, case is in great shape as well. I printed out the entire manual which will be included with purchase .” Link
“Here for sale is a Roland Juno-106 synthesizer. I bought a brand new power cable to test to out. The power does turn on. I used headphones to test out the specific outputs including the phones and other outputs. These all seem to be running fine. Sound does come out of the banks. However, when I play a chord on the ones I tried, it doesn’t sound like a chord. It seems the notes are in a random order. This seems to be because of faulty voice chip(s). These will need to be replaced. There are some knobs missing, please check the pictures. I did test all the ones that are still on there and most of them seem to work okay. The only ones that don’t seem to work are the LFO knobs. They don’t seem to do anything. The bender doesn’t seem to be working, either.
The power cable will be included. Nothing else will be included.” Link
“This 106 is one of the later models that did away with the voice chip problems. I have never had an issues with it in all the time that I’ve used it. Fully functioning and everything is clean, all keys, sliders and buttons work as they should. Comes with original power chord. I am selling because I am having more interest in older Synths from the 70′s. The 106 has been kept in a smoke free studio.
The unit is used and sold As-Is. No Returns. No exceptions” Link
“This is a classic Roland Juno 106 Analog Synthesizer.. This is a very nice looking synthesizer with no broken keys, no broken slide controls, and no missing slide caps. There are some noticeable scratches in this synthesizer but all the colors are vibrant and unfaded. We made every effort to make sure that this Juno plays as good as it looks so we sent it to our professional technician to have it fully serviced. The service included refurbishing all 6 voice chips , then recalibrating it to factory specs. This is an absolutely necessary service when owning this model Juno. The service also included replacing any faulty function switches, replacing the battery, reloading all factory sounds and cleaning all slide controls. This is an overseas model Juno 106 so it comes with a AC power converter. ”
“This is as pristine a 106 as I have seen or played. ALL 6 voice chips replaced – unit is very clean. Includes power cord.
Hard to find one in this shape these days.”
“All presets work when tested! Power cable included! Will ship safely.” Link
It needs to be serviced.
It has 2 minor problems …
1.) It is missing the top part of the 4th fader, on the envelope filter section, easily accessible by using a toothpick or similar object as pictured for demonstration purposes only, in one of my photos……The fader is fully 100% functional.
2.) On some of the patches, certain notes, play at a lower volume …. possible Voice Chip Issue ???
Buy and have this minor issues serviced and you will own yourself a super clean 106
This keyboard was very lightly used in a private home studio and as you can see was taken well care of. The Pics speak for themselves, this is the cleanest JUNO 106 you may ever see on eBay. This keyboard will be professionally packed and shipped.”
“Offered for sale is Roland Juno 106 synthesizer in near-perfect condition. This instrument is virtually free of scratches, dents and blemishes of any kind. All keys and controls including knobs, sliders, lights and buttons are guaranteed to be in perfect working order.
This Juno 106 comes fully loaded with Group A and Group B sound banks and is ready to plug-and-play use.
The synthesizer comes with a travel case made by Hybrid Cases which shows some light wear but it is in very good condition.
The unit comes with original power cord.” Link
※Little whirring happens when it this item switches on.
If you can’t stand it please repair it!
※This item is an old secondhand item and may have imperfections.
It works properly.
“The keyboard has been almost completely restored. New Knobs, sliders and Bender, The Memory battery has been replaced. A voice chip has been replaced it but still needs one more chip to fully restore it. These parts are all available still from analog repair shops. It’s right on the edge of perfection! Keybeds and contacts have been cleaned as well.” Link
“You are bidding on a used but in good condition Roland Juno-106 keyboard synthesizer with case. It has been tested and seems to be working perfectly. Comes with Calzone hard case.” Link
It has recently been completely serviced by the Synthspa, so you can be sure that the voice chips are all completely restored and won’t fail. I’ve also upgraded it to have beautiful wood cheeks, but I will include the original end cheeks in the package as well.
This one comes with the KIWI-106 hardware/software upgrade installed, which means it sports an expansive range of functionality that takes the 106 to the next level (see below). That said, I will include the original board for the 106 with this, in case you want to swap out of the Kiwi upgrade (no idea why you’d want to do that, though!). ” Link
“This Juno-106 is in almost near mint condition and it was serviced 3 months ago at Alto music in New York. The Juno-106 was already working great and it was only serviced so that it can perform at its best and so that the future owner of this synth won’t have to experience any future problems. The case is a wooden case custom build with casters. The case is covered in tiles. Case is very sturdy and not as heavy as it looks but solid. Shipping will be done extremely well. I might need to remove the casters as I plan on boxing it up. Im going to seal the Juno in plastic then place it inside the case and fill the inside of the case with foam peanuts. Then ill place the wooden case inside a sturdy cardboard box and fill the inside of the box with foam peanuts so that case will be floating around foam peanuts inside a sturdy cardboard box. So have peace of mind that Juno will travel safely. This ad is for only the Juno-106, power cord, and wooden custom case with wheels. ” Link
“This is a Roland Juno 106 polyphonic analog synthesizer sold AS IS. 7 of its chips need to be replaced. All other features work fine. Aesthetically it looks very good, aside from some small scratches and blemishes, as is typical for a synthesizer of this vintage. See photos which clearly show the blemishes. The power plug has been upgraded (to 3-prong). Here are the details about the problems: Sawtooth wave only works on voice 2. No square wave. Sub oscillator is dead on voices 1, 5, and 6. Works fine in unison. To get it back to fully-functional condition will require some work by a skilled technician. The technician I talked to said he estimated the work to cost $500, but I’ve seen ads online indicating lower repair prices.” Link
Please Note: This is a USED item ” Link
“Original Roland Juno 106 Synthesizer Keyboard. Very good condition. Fully working with six NEW voice chips especially ordered from Germany. Have all been professionally fitted and the unit completely calibrated. Owned since 1993 and regularly serviced. Been used in my studio in London on various albums. Comes with hard case.” Link
“Classic and incredibly rare Juno 106 in fantastic condition. Simply selling as I haven’t had time to play it in years, but it’s an absolutely fantastic piece of equipment. As far as I know everything is in perfect working condition, however potential buyers are more than welcome to fully test it if they come to collect.
Comes with a beautiful bespoke mock-crocodile case with red velvet and foam interior, and the full juno manual. I’ve somehow misplaced the power lead but that is dead easy to replace so shouldn’t be an issue.” Link
This is a used, vintage, classic synthesizer from the 1980s. It has been well loved, babied and treated with lots of TLC. It has always been covered when not being played, never gigged, always in my smokeless, pet-free, air conditioned home, and only taken to my local Roland Warranty Service Center to make sure all is working great for it’s recent service.” Link
“Used Roland Juno 106 in 100% working condition. I have owned it for several years and sadly have hardly had time to use it. I have tested all voices and have no issues. Synth also comes with power cable and original bag.” Link

“Up for sale is a Roland Juno 106. In Great condition, and was just inspected by the pro audio keyboard specialists at my local pro audio keyboard store. All voices function properly and all controls are fully functional and smooth, mostly because it has low hours on it. These are highly sought after and highly desirable. In fact, it’s hard to find them for sale out therein good repair because most owners will not let them go. There are not many Juno 106 m go. boards out there in this condition. This is a “one owner board” and well taken care of from the beginning. Very little travel. Mostly a studio board. If you’re looking for a rare vintage Juno 106 in great condition, GRAB THIS ONE WHILE ITS STILL AVAILABLE! I am a long time eBay seller – take a look at my rating and bid with confidence.
This board is fully functional with power cord. I take excellent care of my gear and have several vintage pieces that look and perform like new. Free local pick up or shipping via UPS. I am sure it will not be inexpensive to ship, and I will have UPS handle the packing, safety of this board and delivery. Or, choose the local pick up option at no cost to save shipping fees. The reviews of the Roland Juno 106 are fantastic, with a unique, warm sound and two chorus types as well as full edition capabilities. The Juno-106 uses two built-in Chorus options, and it enemy has a tuning control knob to sharpen or flatten the pitch of the entire board to “tune match” anything you’re playing with in combination, and a memory protect switch in the back so that you (or your curious drummer) don’t accidentally overwrite ur favorite patches. The seemingly endless patch bank can be selected, tweaked to your liking and saved for quick access in the studio or live. MIDI in, out and through, digital effects, and that analogue sound that you just can’t get in a modern board. This is the appeal in the serious professional market. BUY IT NOW TO GUARANTEE OWNERSHIP OF THIS HISTORIC, PROFESSIONAL ROLAND JUNO 106! You won’t ever want you give it up.”
Working condition and functional aside from the following issues:
-One black key popped but functions (See pic)

“Duct tape on the back and a little grime. Keys are a bit dusty and knobs are barely bent. Voice chips are functional and so are the knobs ” Link
I’ve gotten emails after the fact on “parts or repair” items from people saying the thing didn’t work. I don’t guarantee this will work. I guarantee it has not been picked over and had things removed or swapped.
Missing slider knobs. Stem broken from one of the sliders. The internal voice board is loose. It has one intermittant voice (the common 106 problem). The stem of the bender was sliced off. All of the liner felt/rubber for the sliders have crumbled to pieces.
All the keys work and the chiclet buttons all seem to perform the correct function.
It does, sound like a working Juno 106 and the slider resistors all function (provided you can get them to move). Several are hard to move. It has what sounds like mostly all of the original patches loaded. I went through all of the functions last December but didn’t take any other notes. It does power on but again its for Parts or repair only.
I already have a Juno and wanted a backup, but the seller wasn’t entirely upfront about the condition and its really more of a project waiting to happen.
I will secure the loose board internally for travel and not disrupt the electrical connections but it should be examined before putting power to it.
Even though this was working that last time I plugged it in, this is part or repair only. Probably an easy fix but most of the sliders would probably be due for replacement.
I’m not including a power cord, but will immediately refund the winning buyer $15 for a power cord. This is how keen I am about this cosmetically nice (see photos) but nothing I would take anywhere until serviced item being for parts or repair only.” Link
” We have almost completely restored the unit back to working condition. But we recently acquired a Gaia so we are ready to part with this one. The memory system has been repaired, with a new battery. And one of the voice chips has been replaced. Keyboard contacts cleaned and keybed has been maintenanced and the keys cleaned. Bender control replaced as well as some of the sliders. There is still one voice chip that needs replacing, but it’s an easy find at Syntaur.com. Aside from that, the Audio section and chorus work just fine. This is the classic Roland sound, still kicking!” Link
“Roland Juno 106 and power cord. It works and looks great! The volume pot is a little scratchy when turned, but it just needs to be cleaned. The serial number is 507638 which if I’m not mistaken is one of the last batches made. Cosmetically it is in great condition for its age.” Link
“Roland Juno 106 analog synthesizer (w/ MIDI) in excellent condition. This is a really clean unit and works 100%. It is missing one slider cap but the slider works fine. See photos to see the nice cosmetic condition of this unit. Power cable included.” Link
