“Chances are if you’re looking at this auction then you know what it is. The classic drum machine that defined the sound of hip-hop, and acid techno. This is the nicest unit I have ever seen. I am the second owner, as it sat in the original owner’s closet for over 30 years. It was recently given a clean bill of health from tech genius JL at the National Music Centre here in Calgary. It only has a couple of minor scratches, and a very small scuff on the left end cap. Everything on this unit works flawlessly. ” Link
I’m selling this unit as-is and no returns are accepted – so please bid accordingly
Condition: The unit does power-up and will play, however not all voices work (only 3 voices work). The sliders work, you can adjust the filters, and envelopes. I replaced most of the buttons so they should all work at this point. Midi and audio outs also work just fine. All 61 keys will work – sometimes – and only if you use the poly 2 function. That said, yes there is some functionality BUT please keep in mind I am selling this AS-IS and is being sold as NOT-WORKING. It needs work that I don’t have the time, or money to invest. ” Link
“Comes in original box with power supply.” Link
I have personally tested all of the knobs and switches and everything works perfect, volume knob is a little scratchy..
Great sounding synth that has been well taken care of, Rare in this condition,” Link
“Roland MC-202 Vintage Analog Synthesizer. I’ve had this unit for 11 years, works great. I’ve never had batteries in it, so the battery compartment is clean, and the battery cover is included. I have a power cord and manual to go with it. All sliders work perfectly. While turning the volume knob it crackles a little bit, however this hasn’t been a problem because you don’t adjust the volume knob while recording. When the volume knob is stationary, there is no problem at all.” Link
“THIS IS ROLAND SH-2000 SYNTHESIZER (SOLD AS IS). IT IS GOOD PHYSICAL CONDITION. I TRIED TO TEST UNIT AND ONLY THE WIND KEY SOUNDS. ” Link
“Up for sale my Roland System 104 sequencer including the original instruction manual. I used it in my (non-smoking) homestudio. Fantastic mid 70′s analogue step-sequencer with 2 x 12 steps. Part of the big Roland System 100 semi-modular synthesizer. The 104 is in great condition, cosmetic 7.5/10, with only minor pitting to the front surface of the unit. A truly great vintage sequencer, also in combination with other vintage synthesizers. The sequencer has been fully serviced and calibrated in March 2012. It’s a 230 Volt version with UK plug fitted. ” Link
“This is a super rare Vintage Roland SH-5. It comes as part of a completely self enclosed case. Check the other listings and you’ll see just what an incredible deal this low starting price is. Every key, button, knob, switch, and slider has been tested and is fully functional. The SH-5 is in excellent working and cosmetic condition. (Shipping is so high because this Synth is Big and Heavy). ” Link
In decent condition for a synth of its age. A little rust round the connections as expected. Some minor cosmetic scuffs. (it has been stored away in garage for 10 years +)
I have had this plugged into an amp in last couple of days, had a mess around and it seems to be working fine, but cant offer any guarantees on every function, obviously down to this I cannot accept returns. ” Link
“Roland JX-10 Synthesizer. All 76 keys work. No cracks in the housing. There are some scratches. Includes power cord, manual and a pedal. The pedal is from a Yamaha.” Link
“The unit is in good condition but it is 30 years old and does have some cosmetic bumps and scratches. I have owned the unit for the last 12 years and during that time it has been well looked after and has only seen light and careful home studio use. It has a Kenton electronics modification which can be seen in the rear picture allowing the slide, acc, filter, gate and cv functions to be controled by cv from another analogue unit or via midi through a midi to cv converter. The accent port on the mod kit is missing the external washer which could be replaced cheaply. The 303 was recently given a complete service by Glasgow studio electronics and all repairs and service are guaranteed for 6 months, the certificate of service is included in the sale. All repairs carried out as follows
Repair details Roland TB303 sn 197700

Audio wise the 303 is in first class condition and all knobs and pots work cleanly without interference just as they should. Included in the sale are the original carry case which is in great condition apart from a small cigarette burn on the red R of roland, it is visable in the pictures if you look closely. Also included is a brand new battery cover, 9v power supply appropriate for 303′s an old but not original copy of the operation and service manuals and a digital copy of the original manuals on cd. ” Link

“Works great! Looks even better! Classic vocoder sound from the Roland VP-330″ Link
“oland RS-09 Organ / Strings. Produziert fette analoge Stringsounds wie man sie z.B. vom Solina kennt. Darüberhinaus kann der RS-09 aber sehr gute Orgelsounds erzeugen und sphärische Klänge, die man eher einem Synthesizer zutrauen würde. Trotz der wenigen Parameter ein sehr flexibles Gerät mit durch und durch analogem Sound. Für Soundbeispiele einfach mal ein paar youtube Videos checken. Das Instrument befindet sich optisch und technisch in Topzustand, alles funktioniert so wie es soll.” Link
“Hello, this auction is for a vintage original Roland SH-101 Analogue Synthesizer Mod Grip in color grey only. It works perfect and is in really nice condition. I will give it a cleaning before the shipment. ” Link
The unit appears to be fully functional, all the keys and knobs and sliders working fine as I tested. A bit of scratch noise on the volume knob, which probably could do with some cleaning/adjusting.
This unit has been modified with each buttons having different LED lights accordingly to each of its color! Way cooler than the original red LED lights.
Cosmetically its in a nice condition as you can see. There are some minor wear and marks here and there on the body, most notably a bit of rust on the back corner as shown in my picture #7, but nothing too major. I’m including plenty of pictures so you can see exactly how it looks. Overall in a very nice shape if you consider that this is from the very early ’80s!
Comes in an original Roland Gig Bag as shown.
Power cable included.” Link

Das Gerät wurde seit fast 10 Jahren nicht mehr genutzt und seitdem gut vor Staub und anderen Einflüssen geschützt in der Wohnung gelagert. Es ist voll funktionsfähig und funktioniert bis auf die unten aufgeführte Mängel einwandfrei. Die Drehregler kratzen nicht und funktionieren ebenfalls einwandfrei. Die Sicherungen des Gerätes wurden gegen neue ausgetauscht. Die alten Sicherungen werden beigelegt, ebenso die Anleitung.
Mängel des Auktionsobjektes:
- teilweise Verfärbungen bzw. Farbunterschiede des Platikgehäuses
- leichte Gebrauchsspuren und Kratzer am Plastikgehäuse
- Riss an der hinteren unteren linken Ecke des Plastikgehäuses, jedoch noch nicht abgegangen
- die Beschriftung “Program Mode” ist nur noch teilweise vorhanden bzw. es schimmert das Aluminium hindurch
- der zweite und dritte Presetschalter von Rechts, also in der ersten Bank die Schalter für die Rhythmen “Habanera” und “Enka”, funktionieren nur durch längeres und rüttelndes drücken. Leider kann ich nicht sagen woran das liegt, teilweise funktionieren die Schalter bei häufiger Benutzung besser. Ein Austausch der Schalter sollte das Problem beheben.
- der Schalter für “Hand Clap” muss teilweise mehrfach bzw. intensiver gedrückt werden, funktioniert jedoch deutlich besser, als die beiden beschriebenen Schalter im voran gegangen Punkt
Es wurde von mir nur der Betrieb über den analogen Output getestet. Der Midi Ein-und Ausgang, der Trigger-Output und die Eingänge der Remote Control(Type DP-2) konnten von mir nicht getestet werden. Jedoch sind diese auch nie genutzt worden und sollten einwandfrei funktionieren.” Link
Der klassische polyphone Analogsynthesizer. Unzählige Infos zu diesem Kultgerät gibt es im Netz.
Folgende Mängel konnte ich feststellen, vermutlich größtenteils hervorgerufen durch Kontaktprobleme (Verschmutzung):
- Volumenregler knistert bei Betätigung
- die ‘key transpose’ Funktion lässt sich erst nach mehrmaligem Drücken der Taste betätigen
- die weiße Taste für den LFO Trig links neben der Tastatur scheint nicht zu funktionieren
- die Kappe des PWM-Faders fehlt
Ansonsten ist der Synthesizer funktionstüchtig und spielbereit. Phantastischer 80er Sound. Optischer Zustand siehe Photos.
Classical polyphonic analog synth. Browse the web for more information.
I have noticed the following problems, mainly due to dirty contacts:
- volume knob makes crackling noise when being used
- ‘key transpose’ only works after repeated activation
- white button for the LFO Trig doesn’t seem to work
- cap of the PWM-Fader is missing
Apart from that the synth is in a working condition. Phantastic 80s sound. Please take a look at the pictures for optical condition. ” Link
Very good condition overall. Operationally works perfectly, sequencer, audio outs, MIDI and DIN Sync working as they should. Very good cosmetic condition, only a few scratches here and there, and battery compartment is clean and sound. Comes with the original 2 pin Roland PSU (UK 240 volt) and printed manual. ” Link
“used as/is no returns no refunds no exchanges vintage ROLAND CR-78. powers up and sounds great. Includes WS-1 UBER-RARE programmer which was owned by GENESIS. Certificate included with purchase. (could this be the programmer Phil Collins used on ‘In The Air Tonight’. ya never know. but it was owned by GENESIS).
Last 2 CR-78s on eBay sold for about $750 each WITHOUT the hard-to-find WS-1.” Link
“This Keyboard is in very good condition. Some minor cosmetic wear but for it’s age it is in remarkably good condition. Everything is working and sounds good. I have spent many hours playing this keyboard. I love those analog 80s sounds.” Link
“You’re looking at a Roland Juno-106 Analog Synthesizer. This unit is fully functional. The synth is cosmetically in good condition with a few light scratches (see picture) and the cap on the DCO level of the pitch bend slider is missing but still works and could be easily replaced for cheap. The synth has had the chips replaced or cleaned, so there should be no issues with it in the future! I have owned the synth for the last few years and it’s never left my smoke-free studio.
Before posting this, I have tested the synth by turning it on and playing it 30 minutes after it started and all sliders/OSCs/filters work.” Link
“Roland MSQ-700 in very nice condition. Missing one slider cap as pictured. 8 track sequencer. Has DCB Sync for older Roland equipment like the TR-909 and Juno 60. Also has midi. Can be used to sync Din Sync gear to Midi. Sync Tb-303, Roland Tr-808, Roland Tr-909 to midi!” Link
“You’re bidding on a blast from the Past. A Roland Juno 106 in near mint condition. I am the original owner, only played it rarely while taking piano lessons. It was only used in the home, never travelled with it anywhere so it’s still in the same condition as when I got it. It’s never required any servicing. It’s fully functional, just tested it to make sure it’s still in perfect working order, and it’s still in excellent cosmetic condition as well. Includes original manuals provided by manufacturer, also in excellent condition. Item is very heavy, so I’m currently offering it for pickup only in the greater Columbus, Ohio area.” Link
“Up for sale is my Roland Jupiter 8, one of the best analogue poly synths of all time. This is an early serial number (151359) so it has the 12 bit interface board, which some say sounds slightly better, and some say has slightly less stable tuning. The tuning on this board is rock solid, and I’ve never had it side to side with a later revision JP-8, so I can’t say if it sounds better or not, but it sounds incredible.
It is in spectacular condition, and could probably be considered museum quality (though I’m not 100% sure what that means, so just consider it mint!) I can’t find a single blemish anywhere, but my eyes are pretty bad, and I’m a player, not a collector, so there could be a minuscule dot here or there that I’m not capable of seeing. That being said, my Poly Evolver, which I bought a few years ago new, and has also been babied, isn’t in as good condition as this Jupiter 8, which is 31 years old, so you can pretty much consider this board to be in the best shape that you will ever find. There’s not even a scratch on the glass which covers the LCD display. The keyboard action is also perfect, and is the best synth action that I have ever played.
The same, however, cannot be said about the Calzone hard case that houses it. The foam, which is also 31 years old, is starting to deteriorate a bit, so after being shipped, there will probably be some little black bits here and there on the board, which are not the least bit sticky and will blow right off. At one point I stepped in the case to get leverage to pick it up, so there’s a boot print in the center of the foam. The case doesn’t have wheels, and is so heavy that, when the keyboard is inside, I can barely move it, so, bottom line, if you don’t want the case, let me know and I’ll just throw it out; It’s definitely not the least bit practical.” Link
The mod: By flicking the switch on the back the mod bypasses the internal sequencer so there is no lag when using the CV/gate. So basically you can use this MC-202 just like an SH-101. The mod was installed where a non used input jack was so there was no drilling and the MC-202 can be returned to it’s original state. I am including the original plug as well. ” Link
“This Juno 60 is fully functional, as I use it for production almost every work day. It has been upgraded with minerva, which works like a charm. TLhere is absolutely no glitch or problems with minerva. It’s amazing. The cosmetic condition of the board is an 8/10. It has minor wear near the top grill. The wood is about as good as it gets. I would say a 9.8/10. All buttons and sliders work as they should. UNDER THE MIDDLE E KEY, there is a slight chip, nothing to hinder the playability or anything. I wouldn’t replace the key. you can’t see it when you are looking down on it. It chipped from the ears of my headphones. Again, nothing that affects the key. Absolutely problem free, and reliable! The synth is fully calibrated and sounds awesome. A good juno will cost you about 1k nowadays unfortunately, and factoring the cost of Minerva plus labor. ” 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
“Roland D550 (the rack module version of the D50 keyboard)
Good cosmetic condition overall and sounds as great as ever.
NEW memory battery inserted for many more years of use. (CR2032)
Factory sounds were loaded back in after battery replacement
NOTE: Front face is in good shape with minor scratches that are in line with a unit of this age.
The TOP of the case is scratched into the vinyl coated aluminum on the left and right sides as shown in the photos. There is nothing to affect the sound or structure of the module.
The LCD backlight is pretty much ‘gone’ but as you can see in the photos, it’s still very clear to read.
Replacement backlights are available on ebay if you so choose to put one in.” Link
