“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

“Please find for sale my much loved ROLAND JD-800.

This Vintage synth is the definitive sound of the 90’s. Packed with knobs and sliders and a 61 key keyboard it is an absolute pleasure to program and play.

This is a reluctant sale as I need to make space when I move – so will be selling at a low price.

This unit has recently been professionally serviced and given a good internal clean and is fully functional.

Cosmetically in very good condition with a few minor blemishes.

Looks like a couple of the pixels in the display (see image) are underlit but there may well be a contrast setting that retifies this.

I will include the 2 pin power cord.

The only downside is that because it has a sturdy metal casing it is very heavy so postage price will need to reflect that.”

“This is an iconic synth from Roland that I have owned and loved for 25 years. It has only had studio use and has been well looked after.
Unfortunately these synths suffered from failure of key contacts, so a few years ago I had mine replaced with a full working keyboard. This lasted only a short time before also failing. So what you have here is a very capable synth that can only be played via another midi keyboard/sequencer. All other switches and sliders are working correctly.” Click here to visit listing on eBay

” Up for sale is the legendary Roland JD 800 synthesizer. The unit has the infamous red glue problem that has rendered the keys unplayable but this issue does not affect the module at all and as a sound source/module it works as intended. Cosmetically the synth is in very good condition as can be seen in the pictures and all the knobs/buttons/faders and functions work as they should (this can be seen in the demo video included with the listing).
I have owned this keyboard for the past few years and have never had an issue with it as a sound module/synthesizer. What I have always done is use the main keyboard I have in my studio to send out MIDI (which I normally do with my other synths anyway) so the red glue problem on the JD 800 has never been an issue for me.
As a matter of fact if you are handy enough there are plenty of instructions online on how to MOD the unit into a sound module only (as shown in the last picture) but in reality I never had the need nor desire to do it to mine.
This is a perfect opportunity for someone to get their hands on working JD 800 at a fraction of what they are fetching if they can live without the keys. ” Click here to visit listing on eBay

The case is optional/additional, since some don’t care about travelling with it. $60 additional for the case.

One cosmetic flaw: the plastic end cap is loose from broken screw connections. My research shows this to be a common issue. It is repairable for the talented type. See photo of end cap.” Click here to visit listing on eBay

“This listing is for a Roland JD-800 Programmable Synthesizer. Some syrupy liquid was spilled on the synth keys (I’m assuming coke) and it has caused keys to stick together. Also, the weights under the keys have mostly come out of place due to the syrup. It doesn’t appear to have had it spill anywhere except onto the keys. I don’t have a power supply to to test if it still powers on. This synth was found in a storage auction of a former musician. This synth is being sold FOR PARTS or REPAIR.” Click here to visit listing on eBay

JD-800, Roland @ 30 April 2017, Comments Off on Roland JD-800

“The main problems are the aftertouch doesn’t seem to work, the outputs have a quiet buzz and the volume slider is a bit crackly. The output buzz is the main issue and is only present on the outputs, not when using headphones. It wasn’t really an issue for me because it only becomes noticeable at loud volumes. Other than these issues everything works fine. Bought it a few weeks ago from an online music store but the sound isn’t really for me so I’m looking to get a Roland JX-3P instead. There’s a couple of marks but overall it’s in great condition. Postage is quite expensive because of the size and weight of the synth. Also includes the Standard drums & percussion ROM card and PCM card.” Click here to visit listing on eBay

Sounds great, no crackles or pops on outputs

All sliders and buttons work

Keyboard works, all keys trigger, send velocity and global aftertouch

Issues:

One of the black keys transmits 127 velocity all the time

Pitchbend/mod joystick doesn’t transmit mod

It takes a lot of pressure to trigger aftertouch. I own other keyboards which require much less pressure, I don’t know if it’s by design or a faulty keyboard

The internal battery needs to be changed

For sale legendary Roland JD800 synthesizer. 100% works!!!

New contact board was installed

The common problem with all JD800’s synthesizers is contact ribbon, you can see it on my picture. Sooner or later, all JD800 will have this problem. This contact ribbon consists of the two parts, and they begin to have a problem after a while. That’s why some keys stop working. New contact board was installed in my keyboard, which consists of one piece. Rolland sells this new ribbon board for $460.

This synthesizer is in 100% working condition. Very clean . All keys work, all buttons work, amazing sound. If you are musician, not a furniture collector, this instrument is for you. Comes with a power cable.” Click here to visit listing on eBay

usedjd800 “Roland JD-800 Programmable Synthesizer

Excellent condition. I refurbished the keyboard, so no clicking or sticking of keys. In fact, I used the newer one piece green contact strip, instead of the older two-piece. Everything works as far as I can tell from running diagnostics and playing. Sliders, knobs, and buttons work well. Power cord included.

This JD has the small mod that lightens up the aftertouch, so you don’t have to press as hard to get the aftertouch to sound.

There is one main cosmetic issue, but it’s in the back of the unit. At the back of the left-hand side, there is a dent. You can see it to the right in the picture that shows the audio connections. Of course, this is out of site when you’re playing it. Also, there is a hairline scratch at the top, left part of the front panel, but it’s hard to see. Some of the keys are a little more yellow than others, and some have very small chips in the front, but that just adds to its character.” Click here to visit listing on eBay

jd-800-project-machine “This JD800 was broken by UPS about 15 years ago, when the notoriously fragile left panel was shattered. After years and years of searching, I recently found and installed a replacement, but some of the buttons on the upper left are missing, and most don’t function. It’s missing screws to secure it and the side panel back onto the synth. It’s also missing the slider for the main volume- it’s left at full volume.

To make it even more interesting, I left the air conditioning off this summer in the studio when not in use, and all of the key weights came unglued.

All the key weights are there, under the keys, but a hand full are stuck.

It’s a project.

It still plays, and when hooked up via midi, the engine is completely intact and functions as it should. The main audio outputs are working, but the headphone out is only sending to one side.”

jd-800 “DESCRIPTION – This listing is for a ROLAND JD-800 Digital Keyboard Synthesizer w/ Road Case.

Keyboard Weight: 33 lbs.
Keyboard Dimensions: 41″ x 16.5″ x 4.5″

ACCESSORIES – This item includes an ATA Road Flight Case and IEC power cable, otherwise, it comes only as seen in photos; does not include any other accessories.

PHYSICAL CONDITION – Good. A few of the keys are loose, there are missing screws from chassis (the hinged top opens unrestrained) and the item shows signs of normal wear.

Road Case Condition: Good. A&S Road Case shows normal signs of wear but structure is solid and intact. Interior foam is in decent condition though it has begun to peel away from the top side.

WORKING CONDITION – Fair: The keyboard (manual) itself is in rough shape, the highest key is broken (included separate), three keys are dead, two more have no spring but still trigger, while the whole keyboard feels very worn with certain sections being less sensitive than others. All the slider controllers tested working well, though a few may need some contact cleaning to improve performance. The synthesizer seemed to function well otherwise responding to all the various slider adjustments, settings and program changes. ”

JD-800, Roland @ 19 June 2016, Comments Off on Roland JD-800

used jd800 ” You are looking at a Roland JD800 keyboard. I have owned it for less than a year and barely used it. I bought it on ebay, and my guess is that it has had a few owners, at least one who cared for it, and at least one one who didn’t. At some point it has had the infamous red glue issue fixed – the glue on the key weights is clear. So either the keys were replaced, or more likely, the glue was removed and clear glue was used. On the other hand, cosmetically it is a bit of a mess. It is scratched and not in the greatest condition to look at. I have tried to show this in the pictures.

All the keys work, all the sliders appear to work, all the sounds seem to be the original sounds, and it works via midi. The audio jacks are fine. Sometimes the bank / patch buttons require a little effort but they all change as they should. The volume control crackles when you move it, but thats probably because it was left at full volume at all times and is fine if left alone.

However, I do not know how to program the JD800, and I have never tried. It is possible that there are problems there, but if so, I have not come across them. I have never tried to do any sound creating or editing on it except using the sliders. I hooked it into my studio via midi, and used various presets a few times for a specific project, and that was the extent of my use. I have never used the headphone jack, not inserted the extra sounds you can get on data or waveform cards as I do not have them.

So honesty compels me to say I am not certain that this unit is fully functional. And for this reason, I am starting the auction cheaply and selling it “as is”.

It comes with a gig bag that is fine but has also seen better days, and the power cable. I do not have the manual.

This is a heavy keyboard. It will be sent very well packed via UPS ground. I usually send items out with 24 hours of receiving payment. I will message you tracking details, and send insured and will require a signature upon delivery – this protects both the buyer and the seller. ” Click here to visit listing on eBay
