Roland JD-800

” Roland JD800 in excellent condition. The keybed has been restored/cleaned to remove all traces of “red glue” and the weights re-attached (quite a job!). The visual condition is excellent 9/10 I would say and couple of small marks. All working as it should all bar the aftertouch (which has never really worked on any JD800 I have owned!).”

“Roland JD 800 Synthesiser. Great Condition. 240V.

Welcome to my auction.

This is a stunning looking and sounding synth!

The synth is in fantastic working order. I’ve thoroughly tested all the main controls and can find nothing wrong except a bit of crackling on the volume slider when moving around at high volume range. This doesn’t affect the operation in any way and is easily fixed – I just didn’t want to open the machine just for that.

The keys are responsive and work perfectly. They spring back as they should and are level, unmarked and undamaged. The touch-sensitivity and aftertouch are working fine.

All buttons, sliders and knobs work perfectly. The displays are clear and bright and all LED’s light as they should.

The case is good for the age. There are minor marks which I’ve tried to show in the photos. One rear lower corner has an area of missing plastic (this happened before my ownership) as shown in photo 11. It doesn’t affect the usability in any way and is the only damage of any significance anywhere on the synth. Please see pictures as they form part of the item description.

The synth comes with the original user guide (slightly marked front cover) and a receipt for a service it had in 2015. This service included the cleaning of all faders and an electrical safety test. There’s also a power lead.”

“This Roland JD-800 looks to work; did some quick testing of the oscillators, filters, envelope generators, and VCA’s and didn’t see any problems. You can see the orange instrument lights and LCDs all light up appropriately. All knobs and sliders seem to work just fine, but many of the piano-keys currently stick together, a few don’t go down at all, and some don’t sound. This is due to the Roland factory piano key-glue softened while it was otherwise being safely stored; the glue just simply breaks down and the weights refasten themselves onto the bottom of the keybed or the keys next to them. The case has some cracks in it near the system keys (see photo) and a chunk has broken out. All the buttons around it appear to work fine. I hear a loose piece of plastic rattling, but haven’t found it when I opened it up.” Click here to search for synths on eBay

“Up for sale is a Roland JD-800 Synthesizer. The classic Roland JD-800, from an era (the early ’90s) when the analog revival had already started, and Roland implemented a digital synthesizer with analog-style controls. The sound is classic late 80s/’early 90s Roland – crystalline, powerful, with quality effects. The patches feature some great evolving pads, powerful basses, moody electric pianos. quasi-analog brass, lush strings, and much more. The JD800 can be expanded via PCM and Data Cards.

Originally purchased from an Ebayer in Japan, who had completely gone through this synth with a fine tooth comb. The infamous red glue issue was repaired and a brand new key contact strip was laid down, all red glue removed from the keys, and all weights were epoxied back into the keys. I attached a photo to show that. All sliders were completely gone through and cleaned as well and they slide like they would have when it was originally selling at music stores. All touch tact switches were replaced too. When it arrived in the US I went inside and de soldered the leads on the transformer from the Japan 100v and soldered to the US standard of 120v, eliminating the need for a step down converter. There is zero scratches, blemishes, or dings on the metal chassis and plastic parts. Bottom panel is flawless other then the shadow from the keyboard stand it was on and has been meticulously cared for including dust covers when not in use as well as being in a smoke free environment. Due to the size and weight of this synth please allow one additional day for packaging before shipping.”

“Roland JD-800 Synthesizer Works Fine Needs A Little TLC. Condition is Used. As you can see a few of the buttons have been removed for God knows what reason. So those are gone. The far right key is the only key with an issue and it’s a minor one no pun intended. The key probably needs a spring replaced. Also a few of the metal bars underneath the keys are missing.” Click here to search for synths on eBay

“This is one of those RARE times a vintage classic synth is available in impeccable, mint condition. This is the definitive Roland JD-800 with probably the thickest warmest sounding pads I’ve heard on ANY synth. For those of you who are familiar with this gem, you know how this beast-of-a-synth sounds. A single sound in the JD-800 consists of up to 4 tones, and each tone consists of an almost completely independent synthesizer voice. A patch can have layers of up to 4 different synthesizers. Combined, they create some of the fattest and richest sounds you’ll ever dream up! Everything is at your fingertips on this board. Shaping sounds is half the fun and the control you have is unprecedented. This board NEVER gigged on the road and only remained in my home, smoke-free studio for recording. And as of the past 2 years, it remained in the case untouched. I also replaced the original keybed by a Roland certified technician with a brand new Roland top-of-the-line keybed that has just amazing action!!—actually better than the original!”

“Up for your consideration is a Roland JD800. This is an amazing synth, but if you are looking at this you probably already know that. The weights were removed from each key and the red glue cleaned off and replaced with a better adhesive. The unit has been fully tested and works great. As you can see from the pictures it is in great cosmetic condition as well. In full disclosure there is a small nick in the second “E” key from the bottom. Hard to see in the pics but we never want there to be surprises for our customers. Clean screen, no jumpy sliders/pots, memory reset to factory. The auction also includes the flight case in the pictures. The top foam insert has been replaced: the bottom foam may need to be replaced soon. It still functions fine, but if you are familiar with these cases, you know the foam breaks down over time.” Click here to search for synths on eBay

“I have seen JD-800’s sell in the $800-$1,200 range and then they jump up to $2,400 and more….why is that ? I found out the hard way, these suffer from a condition where the pink glue from the weights in the keys drips out onto the key contact strip…so I had it refurbished with all key weights re-glued back in and had a brand new key contact strip installed professionally for $500 for the keys and $200 for the new strip so it is refurbished and ready to go…so you don’t have to worry about this happening again in the future…I also put in a new battery and reloaded the factory presets” Click here to search for synths on eBay
