“I’m selling my Roland MC-202. If you’re looking at this you probably already know what it is, but it’s basically a cross between an SH-101 and a TB-303. It sounds basically identical to an SH-101, but in lieu of a proper keyboard has a unique phrase sequencer capable of doing TB-303-esque ties/slides. In other words, it’s a great synth for classic acid sounds.

One annoying thing about the MC-202 is that normally the way it handles external CV/Gate input is that it routes them through it’s internal processor and the end result is not pretty (do some Google/YouTube searches to see what I mean). Luckily, this unit has been modified so CV/Gate behaves the way you’d expect it to. Most other MC-202s you will see on the market will not have this mod and many unknowing buyers are sorely disappointed when they realize they have to pay for Kenton or someone else to do the mod for them.

In addition to the CV/Gate mod, this unit has been fitted with a new output jack.

Some minor issues to report:
– The potentiometer (knob) for tempo control is a little wobbly/bent/sticky compared to the others but works completely fine as long as you’re patient with it.
– The headphone jack was replaced the same time as the output jack, and looks nice and new. However, for some reason unknown to me it only plays out of the left headphone. Probably an easy fix, but I literally never use headphones with it so never bothered to look into it.
– Not necessarily an issue, as this was also the case with my SH-101, but the plastic caps on the sliders tend to come off easily if you turn the unit upside down or transport it. They easily go back on, and all the sliders work fine. ” Click here to visit listing on eBay

D-50, Roland @ 20 May 2018, “No Comments”

“Powers on, but gives a ‘check internal battery’ error. I’ve tried replacing the battery several times, but no success. It doesn’t retain any sounds in internal memory. Also, the 4 buttons (Upper/Lower/Value/Local) next to the X/Y joystick don’t work.

It is possible to load and play patches one at a time into RAM via SYSEX or MIDI and the Roland D-50 Librarian software on a PC (see picture 8), so the keyboard does work. All the keys work and respond to velocity, and the rest of the front panel functions, including the bender and after-touch.
It sounds lovely with a low noise floor and all outputs seem to be functioning correctly as well as MIDI in/out/thru. I haven’t tested it with a memory card as I don’t own any to test with.

I tried to fix the problems myself by replacing several capacitors, diodes and chips on the main board, having taken advice from an engineer, but to no avail. My soldering is not neat but the replaced components appear to work correctly.

The exterior of the keyboard has various scratches and scuffs, some of the keys have chips/marks, all consistent with age. (See pictures)

Given the above problems I am selling the keyboard strictly for SPARES OR REPAIR, although I recommend repair to be attempted only by a professional electronic musical equipment repair technician. I will not consider selling individual components separately. This auction is for the whole keyboard. No power cable included, but uses a standard IEC kettle lead. UK Voltage 220V-240V.” Click here to visit listing on eBay

“You are bidding on a Roland JX3P in good physical and full working condition. It is a 1983 relic, so is NOT mint, but the light surface marks and tiny scratches are superficial. I would say this is in excellent condition though and only upon close inspection can you see it is not mint-perfect. I doubt anyone would be disappointed. All the functions, buttons, memories, lights etc are working as you would expect. Power lead, with UK 3 pin plug, is attached to the synth.

This auction come with the ESSENTIAL PG200 programmer, which is MINT. It comes with its original black plastic case and 2 programmer leads. These look like MIDI leads but are not. They are special leads for this programmer. You have 2 here.

Also included is the original manuals for both the JX and PG, the latter of which is quite rare to find.

Finally it is all housed in the original black Roland branded hard case (I even have the keys so you can lock it!). This is in beautiful condition, as you can see from the photos. Inside the case lid is the JX3P sheet music stand, still wrapped in tape, having never been used.” Click here to visit listing on eBay

“One of the most iconic drum machines ever produced, the Roland TR-808. This unit is fully functional with no electronic issues, very good condition.

“vintage ROLAND JUNO 106 keyboard synth

it has vintage 2 prong power connection cable which
is hard to get, but I still managed to check if it works.

It turns on and works, all sliders are original , there is some noise on some sounds.
Some sliders and functions are producing the hiss,some decline to produce any sound.

This beautiful synth should be cleaned properly and it needs some
attentive overhaul and restoration, but is alive.
Some keys sound less loud then others ,

“Vintage Roland JUNO 2 Synthesizer. It seems that the “after touch” feature is not working, but otherwise it is in excellent working and cosmetic condition. Includes the cord. It has its original box, and will be shipped inside it. ” Click here to visit listing on eBay

“One of my all-time favorite synths with a big, fat, unique analog sound that also incorporates some of the percussive attacks of the DX-7 along with it’s analog fatness. It’s in overall good shape with some minor scratches and scuffing.

A Roland MC-16 memory cartridge included, loaded up with some cool JX-8P sounds!

One of the best features of the JX is the expressive aftertouch feature that can be used to boost things such as volume, modulation, brightness, opening of filters, etc. just by pressing down a little harder on the keys you are holding down. Unfortunately, on virtually every JX-8P in the world, the aftertouch no longer works or is very, very faint due to age. I’ve owned almost a dozen JX-8Ps through the years and it was an issue on each and every one of them as well as virtually any you’ll find for sale elsewhere.

It’s a tedious process to restore the aftertouch on one of these, but I’ve gotten very good at it. The synth gets opened up and the keybed removed. All 61 key springs are removed, then all the keys, one by one. While out, I gave the keys a good sudsy bath and removed all the dirty and grime of a 30+ year old synth. The aftertouch assembly which runs the length of the keybed is taken apart and meticulously cleaned to remove the oxidation that causes it to go out. Reassembly is nerve wracking and usually takes two sets of hands to pull off trying to lay a long metal ribbon atop 5 end to end carbon rubberized strips that sit on top of a gold rail and lay a heavy rubber cap onto of the whole assembly without knocking it askew and having to retry.

Anyhow, the aftertouch was fixed this week and now is expressive and strong without being overly touchy. You’ll enjoy it. If tested all key keys and functions and everything is working perfectly as far as I can tell. It got a good cleaning, inside and out while it was opened up to restore the aftertouch.

Included is the synth, memory cartridge and owners manual on disc. The original magnet with the patch listing is included. You can use it or not use it and position it wherever you like. I bought you a brand new power cable so you won’t get a 30 year old worn out one with your purchase.” Click here to visit listing on eBay

“Chance to own the original classic TB 303 bass line. For that amazing acid sound. good condition for a 35 year old machine that has had plenty of use as most have. (see photos for condition). Fully working i have tested today as i havent used it in about 8 years. tested with batteries as i have no AC adapter. It did work with adapter when i had it in my studio years ago and still should. when tested I noticed a cracking sound when turning the volume but this faded to almost nothing after playing with it for half hour so should completely disappear with more use. it didnt do this when i used it regularly. ”

“Works great, couple minor scratches but nothing serious. One thing to note is that the power supply needs to be in just the right position in the jack to power it or you could use some tape to make it stay powered. Runs on batteries as well.”

“– Nice working condition, clean, very good sound

— Please look at the photos carefully, they are part of the description

— Please notice the minor scratches on the empty panelbelow the “Roland” logo, at the “VCF”, at the “ENV” and near the “MIDI”

— As you can see from the photos the power rating is 117 V(i.e. 110 V, North America)

— Please remember that these synthesizers were manufactured1984 to 1991, so it is about 30 years old

— Used only occasionally, smoke free home, always stored under a cover. This was my first “real” synthesizer and I took very good care of it”

“You know what it is. This one needs to be serviced, all sounds sound great, it just takes some extra pressing of the bottons. Powers on no problem, tempo ,start/ stop work. Even some old programs on the bottom row. Main flaw is it will need new bottoms/ contact…not a technician. I was able to sample all the sounds perfectly from it with the functions it does preform. I’m sure someone more tech savvy could make this machine 100. Please no refunds!!!! Not all bottons function!!! But all sound is there!! Happy bidding on this piece of history, original manual included!!! Ps . Samples of the kick and hh sound as good as my 808 samples strait up!”

“This is an original gangster TB-303 thats lived in a non smoking studio environment for the past 5 years in Brooklyn New York. It’s produced for a bunch of records so its had a good life here and I would like to hand it off to someone that can take good care of it. I have a kid on the way and so I have to start becoming a dad. More picks off the TB-303 up soon.

I updated the picks finally. To answer a few questions you may have, heres a bit more info;

– No scratchy pots. All of the knobs work well with out any scratchy noise.
– There is no corrosion in the battery chamber.
– All of the in and out puts work.

– Batteries included. But you have to get your own DC 9v power source.”

– Some small sections where the metal has rusted, though nothing too major (See left hand side in pictures).

– The switcher needs replacing on the ‘Octave Transpose’ function, but the mechanism underneath still works, you just have to stick your finger in to use it.

– The bender switch has snapped off, but the rolling mechanism still works so you can still bend the pitch by rolling it with your hand.” Click here to visit listing on eBay

“I will describe the condition, and current state, but I cannot answer technical questions. Please use Google for downloads of the manual, and technical specifications.

The synth is in overall fair condition (7 out of 10, in my opinion) A bit of wear to the surface finish around the cursor buttons – see photos.

All buttons have been checked, and they all work as they should, without the need for excessive force. The data slider and volume control are fine too.

Audio outputs are good.

I have checked the MIDI in and out, both fine.

The backup battery was changed very recently, and the factory sounds and combinations have been restored (using a system exclusive data dump).” Click here to visit listing on eBay
