“This listing is for a Roland PG-200 Programmer—typically used with the Roland JX-3P or MKS-30. It is in decent USED condition for a unit dating back to 1983. There are a few cosmetic dings here and there and the tops of the pan pots are worn a bit, but overall it isn’t too bad aesthetically. I didn’t test the unit too rigorously, but FUNCTIONALLY everything seems to work fine except for the tune knob, which cuts in and out—seems like it could be fixed, but is currently not reliable.” Link
“Good condition. One of the pots (LFO speed) was repaired. No matching knob was found, so it has one mismatched knob. Fully functional and working. Also includes the cord…”
“Selling a Roland PG-200 synthesizer programmer for the Roland JX-3P, MKS-30, and GR-700. I don’t the GR-700 anymore, so I can’t test this and have to sell it as is, for parts or repair. All the knobs and switches move as they should except for the LFO knob, which is bent and may not make a connection inside, though it does turn. See the pictures to get a sense of the condition.” Link
“Very good condition with a few scratches. Very clean and works perfectly. The sound is absolutely lush and amazing! I have a couple of videos that I recently posted on youtube of this synthesizer if you want to check it out. Just look up synthartist69 on youtube. It comes with the PG200 programmer. Due to the fragile nature of vintage synthesizers, I am selling it as is. NO returns. If you would like to come play it in person and avoid shipping then you are more than welcome to. I have been selling vintage synthesizers on Ebay for 17 years and my feedback speaks for itself. Bid with confidence! ” Link
“Selling my beloved Roland JX-3P with PG-200 programmer and hardshell case. I’ve owned the unit for a little over 5 months (selling due to unforeseen financial circumstances), and the previous owner had the item serviced by a technician. The item is in excellent working condition, with no functional problems (besides the lowest C#, which can occasionally be a bit sticky if you strike the key hard). This synth is a real hidden treasure. It features the same VCF and VCA as the venerable Jupiter 8, and features 2 DCOs (as opposed to the Juno series’ single DCO). Value will continue to rise as more people realize what a great synth this is. Instant 80s vibe. Truly excels at pads (the chorus is amazing).” Link
“The classic Roland Jx-3p and the rare pg200 programmer. This synth and programmer are in perfect working condition. Includes din cable and case for pg200. The LED light above the “16″ button is sometimes intermittent but this does not affect functionality whatsoever. This has been a great synth and has that vintage and classic Roland sound. Free shipping! Will only ship to lower 48 USA states.” Link

Comes with the PG-200 Programmer AND the Original Roland case!!!!!
There is one knob missing from the PG-200 but you can find them online for a couple of bucks.
Also the keys could use a good cleaning, they all play fine but they are a bit dirty.” Link
Roland PG-200 Programmer, mint condition, with original factory manual, connection cord, vinyl protection box and original outer box.
This one is U.S. voltage – watch out for those Japanese models which are the wrong voltage for our system.
I have seen a lot of these out there. They are usually missing the rubber grommets in the front. This one has the grommets.
I point out 3 blemishes, two where the programmer magnetically attaches to the synth (a kind of paint chip and a white tiny scrape) and one where there is a tiny black scrape on the key (see pics). The wear is due to attaching and removing the PG-200 programmer, which has magnets on the bottom.
It has the factory sounds loaded and 2 banks of other sounds. It has 2 oscillators per voice, chorus effect and a sequencer! Far better than the Juno 106 which only has one oscillator per voice.” Link
As you may know, the voices on these synths tend to fail due to the voice chip coating degrading. The chips in this synth have already been treated (stripped of coating), so you shouldn’t have any unexpected voice failure! The battery was also replaced, so patch memory will be good for the next few decades.
Cosmetically 8/10. A few scratches, one chipped button and a small dent on the side of the PG-200 (pictured). Still beautiful, especially for it’s age.
The power cord and the cord for the programmer are included.” Link
“1- Used JX-3P Keyboard Synth. This has been well played but is in good working condition! Some buttons stick sometimes, and there are dents, and a few screws missing from a previous repair I suppose. All keys work and all sounds work! Also included in this sale is a PG 200 Synth Programer, and cord! This item is sold in “as is” condition with no returns, so bid accordingly!” Link
“PG200. Works perfectly. Also have the Synth, but it is getting some bad keys replaced. Will list it as well after I get it back.” Link
“I am selling the last of the two Roland PG200 Synthesizer Programmers that I own. This one is in excellent condition. It was tested with my JX3P and functions perfectly. Cosmetically the top has no scratches with just a light amount of wear on the bottom. It has 2 magnetic strips attached to the bottom and comes with the original case that is also in excellent condition. I am including a homemade 6 pin DIN cable that isn’t pretty but functioned perfectly for the years I owned it. This unit could easily pass for NOS and you won’t find a cleaner one.” Link
“The synth hasn’t been in regular use for several years (hence the decision to sell it on, finally), so I have tested it to check that it working. Both the keyboard and PG200 appear to be fully working, the user-programmable sounds in memory banks C and D are present, which indicates that the memory battery is still functioning. Cosmetically, there are a few minor scratches, but no serious damage; all keys, buttons, knobs and sliders are present. It’s a little dusty, but over all in a good state.
However, please bear in mind that this is a vintage instrument – 32 years old or thereabouts. In the 14 years of my ownership it hasn’t been serviced. While testing I noticed a little bit of noise in the volume pot (i.e. crackle when it’s adjusted; none when in a fixed position), so it’s fair to say that the future owner should seriously consider getting it serviced sooner or later to keep it going for another 30 years.” Link
” I have no way of testing it. I got it in an auction with a bunch of other stuff. Some knobs are off centre and sticky.” Link
“This has not been used for many years but appears to be in excellent condition – includes Roland JX-3P keyboard, PG-200 programmer w/connection cable and original hard case.” Link
“Classic Roland real analog – nothing else quite like it. Bright, warm and punchy – the MKS-30 is actually a very underrated synth. I guess because all us poor working slobs were relegated to JX-3P’s instead of the Jupiters we really wanted. But have you seen the price of Jupiters lately? So this 1983 era gem is as close as most of us mere mortals are gonna get.
The key is the PG-200 – that’s where the magic happens. It’s what turns this into an honest real time tweakable analog. This particular PG is in outstanding near new condition with no visable blemishes. The knobs and switches are still tight – it’s practically new old stock.
The module is also in very good condition with just the usual rash and surface scratches that comes with age. All lights light, knobs turn, buttons push, sliders slide and the led’s are nice and bright. More importantly (and getting harder to find these days) – all six voices fire wonderfully. Tuning is rock solid – outputs are clean. For a 30+ year old synth I’d say cosmetic condition is between 8/10-9/10. Functionally everything is a pristine 10/10.” Link

“JX-3P w/PG 200 programmer in excellent condition. I am the second owner. It has been used in a smoke free home studio.
Thank you for looking.” Link
“Roland PG-200 Analog Synthesizer Programmer for JX-3P / GR-700 / MKS-30. Great condition, comes with original carrying case and cable. All knobs and switches work smoothly just as they should. Just tested on my own personal Roland JX-3P. Will ship with insurance and tracking #. Imperfections shown in pictures. I hate to see it go!” Link
Both in superb condition, extremely hard to find these together. If you’re looking at this listing then you don’t need me to give you all the blurb about how good it is! I’ll be sad to sell it as it’s such a beast of a synth!
Comes with midi cable to connect the programmer to the synth, and also comes with a very good quality flight case. I don’t have the original manual but I will include a printed off copy which is also easily found online (as well as all kinds of tips, tricks, patches etc)” Link
All working and sounding great apart from the following –
• Scratchy Volume Pot (Not an issue)
• 2 keys need to be cleaned (Easily done, I just haven’t got round to it yet)
• Both Arpeggiator Rate and Sensitivity faders are missing
• The PG-200 Programmer input on the back of the synth need a slight wiggle every now and again.
****Both faders are easily replaceable and are not expensive to replace****
Overall the synth is in fantastic condition for its age, PG-200 works flawlessly. I will be very sad to see this synth go, but I have to sell as I’m moving house and need the money!” Link
“roland jx3p in working condition comes with pg200 and cable. the synth is a little beat up, has a good many scratches and crap on it. the volume knob has some static when you turn in. the pg200 and everything else works fine. the pg200 is in good shape and makes this synth pretty awesome.” Link
“Roland JX-3P and PG200 programmer In great condition, tested works great” Link
“Verkaufe meinen Roland JX-3P mit PG 200 und sehr schönem Zustand. Hier funktioniert alles ohne Probleme. Netzkabel und eine gedruckte Anleitung sind mit dabei.” Link
Thanks for viewing my listing.
I am the original owner. TESTED before placing the ebay listing. All pads, pedals, switches and buttons work. Plays great both in keyboard action playability and in the sounds!!! All pictures are of the actual item. Roland JX-3P Programmable Polyphonic Analog Synthesizer. PG-200 Programmer box uses a 6-pin DIN cord (cord also included in auction). In very nice condition, sounds, All pads, keys, knobs, switches and buttons work. Minor scratches on the JX-3P due to normal use, keys are scratch-free. The PG-200 Programmer (external programming box) is in excellent condition. I will include a CD with the owner’s manual and service manual. This unit is 110v. Calzone flight case custom made for the JX-3P is included!
NOTE: I “blacked out” the name (Roland JX-3P) on the front of the keyboard since the white silk screen letters were highly reflective when on stage…
NOTE: The “interior foam” on the top part of the top part of the “flight case” is not as springy as it was when it was new & may need replacing in the future. ” Link

“Roland JX 3P Synthesizer with PG 200 Programmer in excellent working condition. Comes with programmer and factory MIDI cable as well as manual. Everything works and its in great cosmetic condition. This Synth is sexy and beautiful and very hard to find.” Link
“We are selling a Roland JX-3P and the PG 200 with it.BUT it does not work properly.when you turn it on it works for about 10 seconds and starts fading out to no sound at all.we do not want to mislead any one …this thing needs repaired to work right.the short cable from the synth to the pg200 is also bad. The synth does not have all the right screws in the bottom of it so someone had took it apart before i got it.Someone who knows how to repair these instruments could get a deal on a vintage synth!!!” Link
“The JX-3P is Roland’s first MIDI Synthesizer and together with the Roland PG-200 Programmer it becomes a fantastic musical instrument. On it’s own the JX-3P is a very nice Synth but when you marry it up with the PG-200 Programmer, giving you hands on real time tweaking you can get lost in it for hours creating an endless variety of original sounds. It’s been well looked after and is in perfect working condition. Recently had all the key pads cleaned so all the keys respond as they should. This JX-3P comes with a Padded Hard Case and Owner’s Manual. The PG-200 comes with a PG Cable, Vinyl Case, Owner’s Manual and original box.” Link
Fully functional and in excellent cosmetic condition.” Link
“This is a Roland JX-3P analog keyboard synthesizer. This syntheiser also comes with the slightly rare PG-200 programmer which makes a huge difference in creating your own sounds. It appears to be in very good condition and has normal scratches and dings for a synthesizer of this age. There is a spot on the left end plastic of the JX-3P which appear to have melted and there are a couple of knobs on the programmer that are not original but these do not affect it’s performance. It is a full featured professional keyboard with a simple 128 step sequencer that was the successor to the analog Roland Juno series, but unlike the Juno 106, the JX-3P has 2 oscillators per voice. The sequencer was tested and is working good. All function buttons appear to work fine and there are no scratchy controls. The keys on the keyboard seem to all be free moving and have good action and each key seems to produce a note OK. There are 32 factory presets and 32 user presets in the memory. The PG -200 programmer appears to be fully working with no scratchy controls. Included with the programmer is the DIN cable to hook up the programmer to the synthesizer. Please read the disclaimer below before bidding. I will include a copy of the owners manual with purchase of this synthesizer. ” Link
