Roland JX-3P

” I bought this in 2021, however I’ve realised it’s a bit out of my league, and so I am selling it on.

The collection would be in person from a public place in central or west London.

NO postage. I don’t have a box for a courier. I will consider private offers via paypal.

I don’t quite know enough about synthesisers to know if absolutely everything is 100% working.

However, it does seem in generally good shape.

I can tell you that:

– the unit emits a hum when switched on, which is perhaps to be expected
– the keys all move smoothly, and there are no obvious chips or cracks in them
– all keys sound
– it seems to be in tune
– the wheels and sliders all move fine
– the volume pot is slightly crackly, but nothing too severe
– all presets sound
– the sequencer was briefly tested (i.e. not fully), and what I tested seemed to work
– the sequencer playback was responsive to changes in sound by scrolling through a few of the preset buttons
– the sequencer tie and rest functions incremented the sequencer on to the next step
– the vast majority of parameters from the edit map were responsive to changes. Only in a minority of cases could I not detect any change when trying to adjust the parameter value
– cosmetically the unit is in very good shape
– I tried briefly to save 2 custom sounds, this worked
– I briefly tested using another keyboard to play the JX3P via MIDI, and vice versa, and in both cases it worked” Click here to visit listing on eBay

“Roland JX3P Vintage Analogue Polyphonic Synthesizer Used in need of maintenance.

This is a vintage synth which is working but is in need of some tlc to bring it back to its former glory. It is missing a volume knob and sensitivity knob. All keys depress and sound except for the lowest D (2nd white key lower keyboard) which does not depress. All other buttons and controls work.

Looking to pass this on to someone who has the know-how or knows someone to bring this unit back to its former glory. The item is functioning but please do not consider this item if you are looking for a fully functional unit. “ Click here to visit listing on eBay

Roland JX-3P with Roland PG-200 Programmer

” Roland JX-3P Analog Polyphonic Synthesizer with the PG200 AS IS FOR PARTS MIGHT BE OK

I GOT THIS FROM A FRIEND AS USUAL THOUGHT I TRY IT (WRONG ANSWER LOL)

IT IS MISSING ONE KNOB, NO CABLES AND SOUNDS LIKE THIER IS SOMETHING ROLLING INSIDE THE JX-3P (missing 1 insert that holds the music stand in place)

IT SOUNDS GOOD WHEN I HOOK UP HEADPHONES

MIGHT BE OKAY BUT SELLING FOR PARTS. Powers up, sound can be heard with Headphones just fine, but cannot be heard without. Cannot test PG200 as we have no cables”

“This is in good condition and working well, I have owned it for a year but was told by the previous owner that it had been serviced. Everything is working as it should, apart from one of the buttons to select patches seemed a bit flaky. This is a great synth and sounds brilliant. I would much prefer not to post it, I’m in Bristol but could also deliver within a reasonable distance, but would consider posting if it’s the only option.”

Fantastic condition for nearly 40 years old with barely a mark on it.

Everything working as it should and sounds lovely. Included is the Dtronics DT200 controller which gives the synth a knob per function interface.

Please note this is a Japanese model but I will include the transformer for use in the UK – it’s a slim one two so nothing big and bulky!” Click here to visit listing on eBay

“Roland JX-3P 61 Key Keyboard Synthesizer Very Good Condition.

Great sounding vintage synth.
Everything works. Pots are a little scratchy and could use cleaning.
Cosmetically in very good (7/10) condition especially for its age.
Minor ware consistent with a nearly 40 year old synth. There is a small chip in underside of one of the keys as seen in the last photo. This in no way affects its playability.” Click here to visit listing on eBay

“This keyboard was a recent trade in and seems to be in good working order. All buttons and sliders function with the exception of the key transpose button which does not work and a couple of the others were a little harder to push than the rest. All of the keys play well. It includes a power cord. Cosmetically it is in good shape with just the normal scrapes and scratches you should expect from a keyboard of this vintage.”

Roland JX-3P with Roland PG-200 Programmer

” Roland JX-3P 61 Key Synthesizer with PG 200 Programmer. Everything works on this instrument and it sounds great (previous owner even programmed some really cool voices in banks C and D)! Condition is good with it appearing as an almost 40 year old synthesizer would, but no major flaws. The only thing of note is that one of the music stand grommets is gone replaced by a panel grommet (good luck finding a stand though-not included). This is a British 220v instrument with a type G plug. There’s a little sticker on the back that says it was at Folkies Music in London at one time. It is easy to convert these to 110 if you choose to – the transformer and fuse is available online and the board is clearly marked where to solder. I think this would detract from the originality of the instrument so I am including the proper transformer for using in the US.” Click here to visit listing on eBay

“Roland JX-3P 61 Key Keyboard Synthesizer Excellent Fully Tested Sounds Amazing. I was lucky enough to find this from the original owner who didn’t really play it all that much that It sounds great including the chorus, which is known to distort over time . Missing 1 grommet above the tune knob , a little tape residue shown in pics ,barely a scratch on the face , really in nice clean condition. Comes with a heavy duty soft case which will need a little tlc , the foam has separated from the material, still worth the effort and will be great for protecting the keyboard during shipping!” Click here to visit listing on eBay

Roland JX-3P with Roland PG-200 Programmer

“Roland JX3-P Vintage Analogue Synthesizer With PG200 Programmer. This was overhauled before I bought it a few years back and hasn’t seen too much use since. Lovely white keys and very clean graphics. It’s been a cherished synth.

This is in excellent condition. A hugely underrated synth from Roland’s classic 80s era. Often overlooked by the Juno range, when paired with the PG200 you have all the hands on control you could possible want. Two DCO’s with cross mod opens up the possibilities of tones. It has a lovely chorus setting and filters more akin to the Jupiter 6 or 8.

Bass…..rich and deep.

Pads, lush.

Plucks, sweep the filter or resonance and it’s spot on for electronic music.

It also has a nice step sequencer onboard. ” Click here to visit listing on eBay

Roland JX-3P with Roland PG-200 Programmer

“Roland JX-3P POLYPHONIC SYNTHESIZER and PG-200 PROGRAMMER (with original Roland hard case, fully serviced)

This synth and programmer were born and lived in Japan for most of their lives, until I got them as a gift and brought them out with me in 2014. As with most pieces of music gear that have been owned in Japan, both are in very good cosmetic condition. There are a few scratches and dings here and there on the front panel and chassis of the JX-3P (see photos). They do not affect its operation.

All keys, knobs, etc. are fully functional, as is the PG-200 programmer. Both have been in use in my smoke-free studio. The JX-3P was serviced in early June 2021 by Mike Metz at Thesis Audio Services.

Servicing on the JX-3P included:

AC cable replaced, new battery installed, power transformer replaced – formerly 100V (Japanese voltage), now 120V. Chassis cleaned, controls cleaned, all jacks and contacts cleaned, complete checkout of synth.

The original hard case is included in this listing. The case has seen better days cosmetically, but it is a hard case and continues to serve its primary purpose.” Click here to visit listing on eBay

“Roland JP-8000 in very good condition condition. Excellent sounding synthesizer and everything is working perfectly. Capacitors on the main board have been changed to ensure that this does not experience the common faulty output problem with the JP8000. The JP8000 is part of Roland’s analogue modelling technology and incorporated the super saw tooth wave. The synth has a lovely fat sound and is excellent for dance music. Also has a programmable arpeggiator and ribbon control for morphing effects. Includes power cable and copied manual.” Click here to visit listing on eBay
