“I bought this brand new in 1985. It works great. There is some wear in spots on the plastic, but nothing that is ugly or detrimental to its appearance (see photos for condition) . It was used on thousands of recordings in my in demo production studio, as well as several record releases. I am downsizing my studio, which is the reason I am parting with it. It comes with the original road case that Roland made. The case works, but one of the three hinges is now missing. Included is the original manual. This thing has been a workhorse for me. It has not traveled anywhere since 1990. Prior to that I did some gigs with it, but it always traveled in the protective case. It has some of the best strings I have ever heard, and many of the other sounds are unique and cool.” Link

“One owner. Perfect except for one scratch near the cartridge hole. Everything works as it should. One key doesn’t work intermittently. Probably needs a little contact cleaner. The sounds. What can I say? The best. I’ve searched. I’ve bought. Nothing comes close. Absolutely the best analog synth I’ve ever heard. Easily programmed especially with PG 800 (not included). This a rare chance to purchase a one owner musical work of art. Only selling because I closed my studio and don’t have room in my new home studio. ” Link

“Synth has sat unused for approximately 10 years. Turns on and appears to play just fine, all the voices work. I do not know if all the capabilities function properly because I am not familiar with this instrument. The only thing that I know works is the mod/pitch bend wheel.

“Hello

Here is my Roland JX-8p synth with the Roland PG-800

The magic team !!

I had a new internal battery installed ..

Upon Stereo output I think the left side is 1 or 2 db louder then other side … who knows why

• Other then that both Roland items are in amazing working condition and excellent visually . This setup sounds so cool

• The pg-800 really opens up synth !!

• There is some tape on right bottom of side of Jx-8p synth

Pg 800 has all original carry case and connection midi cable.

Jx-8p has original power cable … ” Link

“Vintage Roland JX-8P from 1985 for sale! Complete with Memory Cartridge (never used it, but it’s there).

In good condition cosmetically and functionally. Second owner, purchased in rough shape, keys have been cleaned and all buttons work. Have used this along with my Bass VI (also for sale) to record covers of The Cure, Depeche Mode, and a few other 1980’s bands. Will refrain from naming all the bands which have used the JX-8P live and in the studio. ” Link

JX-8P, Roland @ 21 May 2017, Comments Off on Roland JX-8P

” Roland JX-8P is a velocity and aftertouch-sensitive, six-note polyphonic, fully analog synthesizer released by Roland in 1984. I am the original owner. This was used very little and when not in use, it was stored in a case purchased separately, made specifically for the JX-8P. The condition is pristine. The only slight blemish this can can be seen in the last picture, to the left of the pitch wheel. If it wasn’t noted here, you would miss it because it’s very slight.

This package comes with the following:
Roland JX-8P Synthesizer
JX-8P Case
PG800 Controller, with cable
Foot Pedal
M-64C Memory Cartridge
A template of the controller for documenting custom sounds
A custom patch that sounds identical to the OB-8 patch used in “Why Can’t This Be Love” ” Link

JX-8P, Roland @ 14 May 2017, Comments Off on Roland JX-8P Project Machine

“Ok, so this synth is in bad shape, but there is hope. First of all, as you can see the unit powers up. It does make sound. Several keys don’t play, and the outputs pretty bad (except the headphone jack works good). Also the MIDI works great, so it can be used as a sound generator. But obviously I’m selling as is for parts or repair because any of this could stop working at any point, just do to the fact that it’s in such bad shape. So, no guarantees, but know that I have successfully recorded midi tracks with this synth in the past. And I have cleaned it up too, when I got it, it was in worse shape. Unfortunately I am not including the power supply, it is just in the picture to show the synth powered on. It needs some tlc, but isn’t garbage. Once again- sold as a broken synth AS IS for parts or repair, and no power supply included, just the synth.” Link

Synthesizer is in rough shape but is mostly functional. Cosmetically it is pretty worn. Some of the slider tips are missing, the pitch bend was “repaired” at some point by epoxying a toothbrush handle to replace the original that broke off. The overlay on two of the tone selection buttons are torn, but the buttons still work. Also some of the keys will cause a note to stick randomly. The volume and edit sliders have issues. The volume slider is scratchy and cuts in and out. With a little playing you can get the sound to come out clear. The edit slider jumps the values way up or down with little movement of the slider. They probably need to be cleaned. Two of the black keys have a little melted spot on them. After touch seems to work ok. Other than those issues it does work well. Don’t have any way to test the midi and pg-800 ports so not sure if they are functional. Would make a nice synth with a little fixing up for those technically inclined. Requires a special ungrounded two prong power cord which is not included.”

jx8p “PLEASE NOTE, THIS SYNTH IS A 240V SYNTH! I WILL SHIP IT WITH THE VOLTAGE UP CONVERTER! 120 – 240v I’ve seen upgrade kits if you like but I’ve had no issues with this device at all, it doesn’t get hot or cause me issues.

Now, the common issue with this.. the after touch. I’ve personally taken this apart to clean it throughly, I did not take the rubber/copper strip off at all, I just cleaned it very well and once I put it together the after touch is there just very faint. I don’t have a doubt it wouldn’t work once it’s cleaned all throughout the guide; side note missing a screw on the side. Can’t see it.

This synth feels and sounds amazing. I do not own any cards with any other sounds, I’ve tried the desktop apps through

MIDI to play with the pg800 simulators and it’s amazing I just don’t have an option to save anything! Whomp!

I don’t have the box but it’ll be shipped in a box that fits it very well! And I will ship it very carefully! ” Link

jx8p “Here we have an awesome pristine example of a Roland JX8P. I got this from a synth collector, who left this boxed in there closet for the last 20-25 years. It really in great shape, cosmetically perfect, not a scratch. The aftertouch works better then anyone of these I’ve ever played too. Only small issue is one button doesn’t work, the sound 29 button. Luckily this serves no other purpose then playing sound 29, everything else is perfect! This comes with a Synth ROM cart. I put the best JX8P sound on it, so you would be good to go. ” Link

jx8p “A VINTAGE Roland JX-8P in decent working order. Roland produced this synth from 1984-1989. The original factory sounds are loaded and the unit includes a proper power cord (two prong, square head unique to this product). An owners manual is included. The unit works just fine but has minor cosmetic issues expected of a 33 year old instrument and some playability issues listed below. The unit has lived in a NON SMOKING environment for about 10 years. The unit is packaged up nicely and ready to ship from the Dallas area in Texas, USA.

PLAYABILITY issues: 1) Notes will hang on occasion. The solution is to clean the key contacts underneath the keys (google Roland JX-8P hanging keys). It is a common problem with this synth than can be fixed if you’re willing to dig into it (see link below). 2) The portamento on/off button and slider has no effect. I would suspect this can be fixed with cleaning as well. 3) The stereo outputs have issues. The mono jack has no output and is slightly bent (see pictures). The secondary stereo jack has low output. The headphone jack works perfectly and can be used as the main stereo output.” Link

Great analog synth with DCO!

Nice condition! (see photos)

Usual wear around the left and right side.. (see photos)

Everything works! *

Every key, every button, every switch, slider, OUT-s, joystick, midi in, midi out… (tested extensively few days ago!)

* Only thing – I think aftertouch is not working! (but I am not totally sure..) It can easily be fixed..just some basic soldering of few contacts!! literally.. (I saw some tutorials on the web.. search it.. I did not took time to do it)

It comes with power cord (cable) needed for the synth.

It will be very well and securelly packed! (I am a serious ebayer! Read my feedback.. I have already sold many synthesizers.. and got only great feedback!) I Will send you photos of packaging process!” Link

8p ” Analog / Digital Hybrid Synthesiser. Stable DCOs with Analog VCA and VCF. Warm sound. Best in the range for the time. Some cosmetic wear and tear visible. See photos. Due to age. Used to belong to chart topping group, The Cool Notes, from Mid Eighties. Fully working apart from Aftertouch, which never worked on this model! Can be repaired easily though. I never got round to doing it. Half hour job. See online for guidance. Comes with manual and service manual.” Link

Optisch einige kleine kratzer, des alters entsprechend. Programmer hab ich mir gespart. Hab zuletzt einen behringer bcr 2000 benutzt um ihn anzusteuern. Funktioniert super und man bekommt ihn hier für ca. 80 euro. Kann meinen leider nicht mitanbieten, weil ich ihn noch für einen anderen synth brauche.” Link
