“Roland D-50 Linear Synthesizer in very good condition, in sturdy flight case

This auction is for a Roland D-50 Linear Arithmetic Synthesizer. I have owned this from new, and always looked after it, so as a result this keyboard is in great condition. Everything works as it should (apart from the minor issue described below), and it does not suffer from the well-known D-50 maximum velocity fault, which can affect these keyboards.

The D-50 caused a sensation when released back in 1987, and before long it’s distinctive sounds were heard all over the pop charts.

This example comes in a sturdy flight case (see photographs), which is slightly wider than the keyboard itself, so allowing the mains cable to also fit inside. The case is foam lined, and has substantial clasps and a good handle, and the whole thing is in great condition, with only a few scuffs.

The synthesizer comes with both the ‘Basic’ and the ‘Advanced’ Owner’s manuals, together with a MIDI Implementation Chart, Laminated Edit Map, and ‘Guidebook for MIDI’, in fact everything that came with it when new. All these are still in the original plastic bag they came in, and are in perfect condition.

Although this keyboard is in good condition, it does have one fault, which I want bidders to know about. Please look at the photograph of the jack sockets on the back, where you will see that the socket marked ‘Pedal Switch’ is in fact missing. I only ever used the ‘Pedal Hold’ (Sustain Pedal) with this keyboard, so when that socket started playing up, I fixed it by pinching that socket. Then of course I never got around to replacing it.

If you are really eagle-eyed, you will notice that the rating plate says “AC 117V” for the power input. This is incorrect, it is a genuine UK keyboard, purchased new from a music shop in Yorkshire. I never knew about this until recently when it was pointed out to me. It has been regularly used from day one on UK mains (AC 230V) with no problems whatsoever.” Click here to visit listing on eBay

“Roland D-50 Vintage Linear Synthesizer with original memory card – gigged in the early 90s but sad now that I can’t get it too work. Note: Synth does not work!! Internal battery ran out some years ago, when battery was replaced, could not get the synth to work. Engineer looked at it and thought it might need a new motherboard and we know how hard those are to find! I don’t have the expertise, so would love someone else to either bring it back to life, or use for spare parts. Condition very clean, but a few keys (pictured) have chips in the top layer. Otherwise, all other keys are good.” Click here to visit listing on eBay

“ALL BUTTONS, SLIDERS AND 61 KEYS HAVE BEEN CLEANED USING THE CORRECT PRODUCTS WHICH ARE ALL ANTI-BACTERIAL SO THERE ARE NO BUILD-UPS OF ‘FINGER-GUNGE’ ON, BESIDE OR ON THE TOPS OF THEM!
THERE ARE QUITE A FEW TINY SCRATCHES/SCRAPES ON THE TOP AND THE BACK OF THE CASING BUT THEY ARE VERY SMALL AND I HAVE TOUCHED THEM IN AS I DON’T LIKE SEEING THEM WHEN I’M PLAYING IT!

AS I HAVE SAID IN THE DESCRIPTION OF IT’S CONDITION THERE IS NO DAMAGE TO THE END PIECES WHICH, FOR SOME BIZARRE REASON, ARE MADE OF PLASTIC SO ARE ALMOST GUARANTEED TO GET BASH AT SOME POINT OVER A 30 YEAR PERIOD BUT THESE HAVE SURVIVED. I WOULD ASSUME THAT IT HAS BEEN LOOKED AFTER OVER TIME BUT THERE ARE A FEW SCRAPES ON THE TOP WHICH OBSCURE THE EXTREME RIGHT SIDE OF THE DECORATIVE IMAGES OF WAVEFORMS AND ENVELOPES ETC. OBVIOUSLY THESE SERVE ABSOLUTELY NO PURPOSE WHATSOEVER…HOWEVER THE DO FILL IN AN OTHERWISE BIG BLANK SPACE!

IT IS LOADED WITH THE ORIGINAL SOUNDS AND COMES WITH A MAINS LEAD AND WILL BE IN A STURDY HARD CASE SO IF SENT BY COURIER IT WILL ARRIVE INTACT. IT WILL BE SENT BY PARCELFORCE COURIERS.” Click here to visit listing on eBay

“Roland D-50 Vintage Linear Synthesizer D50 Working But Needs Attention..

All keys work, however some of them have burns on them.

All buttons do work but some require a really hard push. Patch 6 button requires a REALLY hard push. It would be best to replace them all I think.

The pitch lever has snapped off and if you try to use it it engages the LFO and then won’t reset, it will reset if you change to another patch.

The joystick doesn’t work. To edit parameters or balance the parts, it does absolutely zero.

Output Jack a little crackly, sometimes you have to move your cable a little to get a signal.

Aftertouch does not work.

Cosmetically it’s ok – some off the print has worn off by the structures and envelope diagrams, there a few small scratches here and there. And one dent near the output jacks on the back.”

‘This Unit always functioned flawlessly. Recently I took it out of storage and I discovered that it no longer was functioning properly. It will Not go through all of the different presets that it always did previously. It seems to be stuck in one preset Bank and will only select 2 preset sounds from that bank but will Not shift to the others. So I am listing It as “for parts not working”. Cosmetically it is in good condition. ” Click here to visit listing on eBay

“Travel back in time with this awesome old 1980s synthesizer. Made in Japan, it’s a Roland D-50. I used it for a couple years, but now four of the keys don’t work: E2, C3, G#3, and E4. So, it’s a repair project.

When I played it, I just used all the basic functions. I never could figure out how to get all the fancy stuff to work. So, I cannot swear on a stack of Bibles that all the bazillion sub-functions works. As far as I know, they do, but I don’t know for sure. And them’s the facts!

I absolutely love the weird trippy voices that it has. All the weird sounds on the second Toadstool Shadow album are from this very synth. The problem is that I do not know how to fix synths. So, it’s on to the next owner.

It comes with the original power cord. It has ordinary age and play wear, with various scratches and scrapes and stuff. But it still looks pretty good. It’s not cracked or anything like that. ”

“VINTAGE ROLAND D50 SYNTH with hard Case and extras. . . .

I used this in my studio for many years. However, I have not really used it much over the past 15 years, so as much as I love it, it is time for me to let it go.

This keyboard has been fully tested and is in excellent working condition. The only external flaw is that I put some Velcro strips on the keyboard case as illustrated in the photos to attach music lead sheets. (It seemed like a good idea at the time.)” Click here to visit listing on eBay
