“Needs some work as four keys don’t always trigger and some keys mistrigger velocity, so needs new keyboard contacts which can be found easily online and they are easy to replace.
The volume slider also crackles, I never did these repairs as I used this keyboard mostly with a sequencer and it sounds amazing and didn’t bother me.
There’s a ding in the bank select overlay but the buttons work perfectly.
Screen and backlight work great.
So sold as seen. Sounds amazing but will need some keyboard repairs.
Weighs a ton so collection would be best.” Click here to visit listing on eBay

“Cosmetically its in very condition. I was gifted this item and the previous owner mentioned that it needed ‘fixing’. It did not come with a power lead and i have been unable to get any further info regarding what exactly needs fixing. I know the synth was purchased in Europe (hence it’s 220v). Since i have been unable to switch the synth on it is being sold as spares or repairs. These things are built like tanks and for all i know there might actually be nothing wrong with it!!!! Sold as is, Spares or Repair. Great condition with just a small crack on one of the corners ” Click here to search for synths on eBay

“Roland Alpha Juno 2. Condition is “Used”. Shipped with UPS Ground.

All keys work. It still has patches stored on it that I created 30 years ago! Sounds great!

The volume slider is missing a little knob from the top but still works. The pitch bender is loose but still functioning.” Click here to search for synths on eBay

“For sale is the classic Roland Alpha Juno 1. In “used” condition.

These have an iconic sound and are apart of music history. Found on countless hits of it’s era and still widely used today. They are very versitle and can cover a lot of the same ground as some of the other Junos.

This one comes from a smoke free studio and is overall very preserved, considering it’s age and working life. There is wear across the casing and bottom.

All keys and buttons respond and sounds great! A permanent power cord has been well installed to circumvent common power port issues these units can have.” Click here to search for synths on eBay

“In excellent working order, such a powerful analog synth. Don’t be put off by the lack of knobs and sliders, I’ve been using a readily available max4live device to send midi Cc messages via ableton push, and it really opens up the possibilities of what the synth can do.

As well as the factory presets, I downloaded and installed a really high quality set of user patches.

It does not have the famous “hoover” patch currently loaded, but you can have some fun programming that yourself.

This synth is about so much more than the rave patches. I feel like it’s the pinnacle of the 80s analog Rolands, and it can do some things which no other synth at the time could do (some weird kind of pulse width on saw waves I think.. but don’t quote me on that)” Click here to search for synths on eBay

“Roland ALPHA JUNO 1 Vintage Analog Polyphonic Synthesizer. Functions great, all keys and buttons working (portamento button requires a harder press but functions), all voices working, all keys and controls work great, screen in excellent condition (backlight is a little dim but clearly visible in low light). Volume slider cap is missing but not needed. With original power cord and photocopied manual. These Juno’s are getting harder and harder to find with everything functioning.

Sounds amazing… filters are not quite as characterful as the earlier Junos but the oscillator options (like PWM on sawtooth!) and chorus enhancements make up for that. Amazing phasey pads and drone atmospheres, and can get quite experimental when pushed.

Cosmetically there are some rubs on the finish on the sides and corners, a bit of wear on the front panel lettering and a couple of tiny indentations on the membrane panel, but these are pretty minor and presents as a very nice example.” Click here to search for synths on eBay

“Keyboard *UNTESTED*

Used, in good cosmetic condition. Keyboard has some minor signs of wear, has some marks/scratches, and the pitch bender wheel rebounds when pushed to the left but does not rebound when pushed to the right. Otherwise, keyboard is in good shape but it is untested as I do not have a power cord for it so it may need to be serviced – please only bid with this in consideration. Comes with what is pictured, includes keyboard only, does not include power cord.” Click here to search for synths on eBay

“**Please note this synth has a few problems**

I have had the Juno 1 for best part of 25 years. It is showing some wear and issues are

two keys are not working, one of the keys also does not spring back as it should. The octave up and down buttons do not work and the volume slider is scratchy when being used (its stable once set)

The synth itself plays fine. All the soft touch buttons work and screen is good. Personally I have never had it repaired and use it as a MIDI sound module to get all those classic Alpha Juno sounds, if you did want to repair it the issues seem to be mechanical rather than anything else, I would expect them to be cleaning of contacts but I am no expert. ”

“Roland Alpha Juno 1 Analog Polyphonic Synthesizer – 80’s Vintage – E120. Condition is Seller refurbished.
Ive cleaned it all up, and the sound is as fresh as it was back in 87. The only flaw in this amazing retro synth is , when i found it and purchased it, it didnt work. I traced the problem eventually to a bad power cable, i looked but was unable to find a proper power cable for it, so i removed the bad one, and soldered in a new power cable. It works perfectly now, amd sounds fantastic. I would keep it, but im already overloaded with equipment in my studio, and just would not be able to give this lovely lady the attention she deserves. Buy it today, ill ship it out to you as fast as i can. Run your fingers across her ivory, and if you play her just so, I swear You can still feel , and hear echoes from the 80s. Give this lady another chance to sing again, you wont be dissapointed!” Click here to search for synths on eBay

Roland Alpha Juno 1 with Roland PG-300 Controller

“Vintage Roland Juno 1 with PG-300 and AB-3 carrying case for sale.
Very rare to find this combo together being sold!

Synth as been well loved throughout the years, but still in decent condition for it’s age. Screen is still bright and synth still functions as it should. Seller disclosure: Please keep these in mind when purchasing. Volume pot could use a good cleaning and chorus effect seems to be at it’s highest potential at full volume. I would use the PG-300 to handle of of the synth’s controls and none of those issues would affect the play-ability of the instrument. PG-300 works accordingly however it is missing a slider cap. AB-3 has a few scoffs but otherwise in good condition.

Synth plays like a dream and has some excellent patches! These will be at Juno 60/106 prices in the next year or two! Don’t miss out!” Click here to search for synths on eBay
