Roland Juno 6

“I am selling my much beloved Roland ‘Juno 6’ this week as a short auction (with no reserve) and with the option to ‘Make An Offer’. I can honestly say, and openly admit, that it truly breaks my heart to sell this beautiful instrument, I promise you! Every single time I play it I discover something ‘new’ (timbre-wise) and literally have to drag myself away from playing it – it’s THAT inspiring.This was originally due to be sold circa February last year but the potential buyer ‘ghosted’ me in the end. In any event, I was pleasantly surprised by the amount of very positive interest at the time, and I am absolutely certain it would have sold otherwise.

It was serviced when I first purchased it some 10 years ago (I am only the second owner); then again because the volume-dial needed to be replaced (due to it having become a little dusty/crackly); and finally once more to have the (notoriously) noisy ‘Chorus’-chip replaced with a superior component – repairs have made a 90% improvement. I did noticed a couple of notes can have a very slight delay in sounding but it is not all of the time; and only came to my attention recently because I gave the unit a very thorough going-over last month. My estimate would be that a £100 (max) would totally bring this into machine being an A+ keyboard.

Cosmetically, I would rate this (all things considered) a solid 8+/10. Better than many similar models which appear here on eBay, in my opinion (which is based upon having followed such listings over the past 6 months – where similar models have defaced text and rust-rash). Hardly any scratches and no rust on my Juno’s main chassis. Some small minor nicks on the side panels etc, which of course do not effect the functionality of the unit. Two small stickers reside on one side which I have not removed. I have never ever taken this out on a gig simply because I cherish it so much (even though I purchased it specifically for ‘live’ performance!).” Click here to visit listing on eBay

“Vintage Juno 6 – the pioneer of the digitally controlled analog oscillator. Plus that great Roland filter, and the lush analog Chorus. This Juno 6 is in excellent operating condition and has just received a clean bill of health and a full calibration. It’s in very nice condition, the only flaw with mentioning is some minor damage to the side panels at the bottom (where it would be picked up), and the dust cover for the octave transpose switch is missing–see photos.” Click here to visit listing on eBay

“Incredible Roland Juno 6 synthesiser which sounds amazing. In very very good working order, recently checked over and confirmed to be good. A few light marks as you can see, but nothing significant. The Mode and Range switches are missing on the Arpeggio section, but it doesn’t take away from the sound at all. Can be replaced or simply left – you’ll not be disappointed. One of the best synthesiser’s you can find. Please check out the pictures below as they form part of our description. ” Click here to visit listing on eBay

Roland Juno 6

“The Roland Juno-6 is a six-voice polyphonic analog synthesizer, first launched in 1982. It was one of the first polyphonic synth for under $2,000. Arriving after the Prophet-5 in the 70s and the Jupiter-8 in 1981, the Juno-6 was much more affordable than its competitors.

The 61-key Juno-6 offers one oscillator per voice (with two selectable waveforms) and a powerful filter section, capable of stunning six-voice polyphony, heightened by the two types of rich chorus effect that are built in – which became a favourite effect on the Juno-6. This chorus effect remains one of its most notable characteristics – noisy, but much loved for its swirling spatial textures.

Its arpeggiator also stood out, which has a selectable range of up to 3 octaves. A fader also controls the rate, which can additional be controlled by an external sequencer/clock input.

This particular unit also features MIDI functionality, which many do not! It’s our understanding that Roland installed the MIDI functions after initial production, so this was not a feature of many of the earlier units that were made. This now seems to be quite rare to find!” Click here to visit listing on eBay

“Roland Juno-6 61-Key Polyphonic Synthesizer. I have tested if it works as far as I know everything works on it. It has been stored in a garage for 17 plus years. It had a few rust marks you can see in the photos. Wood has some marks too. ” Click here to visit listing on eBay

“Roland Juno 6 Polyphonic Synthesizer JU-6.

Classic synthesiser from 1982, a favourite of many electronic musicians at the time and still today. It is pre-MIDI but has a trigger input for the arpeggiator so it can be synchronised to other equipment.

The synthesiser works very well and sounds great!

The case shows some signs of use as you would expect for an item of its age, see pictures for details.

It is missing a couple of slider caps on the envelope sustain and release. The sliders still operate.”

“Great condition. Functions perfectly. US Voltage.

I got the Juno 6 in the original particle board veneer wood housing which was starting to deteriorate.
I bought a solid wood version and had it professionally transferred into the new housing.
The original housing can also be included for a separate $25 additional shipping charge.” Click here to visit listing on eBay

“I am sad to sell this, since my dad was the original owner and although he did not use it a lot, he enjoyed it when he did play it. It is in near flawless new condition. The only thing that I can see that makes this keyboard not perfect is a silver knob has broken off, which can be found on ebay for $13 to fix it. look at the pic, it is the “MODE” “UP UP & DOWN DOWN” switch….this could also be fixed by gluing a new piece on the switch, the switch still works, just needs something to flick it with…pretty easy fix if your even barely handy.” Click here to visit listing on eBay

“The synth has been my possession for over 15 years and, apart from moving house a couple of times, has not left the house in that time other than to be serviced (last done approx 5 years ago – covers removed, carefully airdusted and brushed, contacts cleaned). Always kept under a dust sheet. There are a couple of very small cosmetic blemishes here and there, commensurate with a 40yr old instrument.”

“Roland Juno 6 in very good condition for its age and is in perfect working order. This is a 240v UK version and has been recently serviced and calibrated. Everything has been thoroughly tested and there are no issues. All sliders and pots are clean without any crackles. Great sounding synthesiser all round. Cheaper alternative to the Juno 60 and sounds virtually identical. Includes Cobra soft case. Postage is with Parcel Force 48 and is expensive due to the size, weight and insurance cost. ” Click here to visit listing on eBay

I have confirmed that all the keys produce sound.

“I have owned this Synth for over 25 years a never really used it as requires midi clock to time up and I use midi modern control. It’s as rare as hens now but this one has a special twist in that I managed to get it signed by the Synth master Gary Numan back in 2017 when he came to Cardiff, a managed to get to meet him before his gig a pursuaded him to sign the end cap for me, to which he laughed a said he never been asked to sign a Synth before ! So this makes this even more unique as it’s probably the only one out there anywhere, and it’s a classic analogue from around start of the 80s when his early tracks used this type of machine !
I really regret having to sell this Synth but unfortunately it has to go as need the cash to pay towards other projects etc a lack of space as house is small !
It’s condition is really good considering it’s 40 odd years old, a still sounds great. The ends show some scuffs a wear etc a one lamp on the fascia doesn’t illuminate when selected which I’m tOld is as simple as a bulb, which I’m sure it is .
Anyway this is a valuable rare item a will only sell if reaches an acceptable sum given its rarity a provenance.” Click here to search for synths on eBay

“The Roland Juno-6 is a six-voice polyphonic analog synthesizer that was released in 1982. It is sonically identical to the Juno-60(one of the most important synthesizers in popular music), and features classic, sought-after sounds that defined a generation of synthesizer-based music in the 1980’s. The most significant difference between the Juno-6 adn the Juno-60 is the Juno-6’s lack of porgrammable patch memory. However, the Juno-6 is full of other enticing features, such as arpeggiation, stereo chorus, LFO modulation, and more. This unit is in very good condition, with some signs of age and use, including some scratches and other marks. The keyboard has been sitting unused for many yeras, but all keys and functions check out. Serial #365328. I have 7 more pictures available if you email and ask for them (ebay only allowed 12) Sold as is.”
