Roland JX-8P

“Roland JX-8P Analogue Synthesiser. All working 230V.

I got this synth in Japan quite a few years ago. Ive converted it to 230V, so no need for a transformer.

I did have the common issue with an occasional note hanging but this seems have been fixed after giving the key contacts a good clean. I have had no problems recently. The Aftertouch also works perfectly (a rarity on a JX8P!). All sliders and bender work as intended.

Cosmetically its pretty good. It does have a few marks and minor scratches but nothing major. The most significant point to note is that the membrane near preset 6 has a chip out of it. This does not effect operation in any way. The end caps are not split or cracked.

The JX-8P is a powerful analogue synth that, like many of the late 80’s had the hardware for parameter inputs replaced with a single slider and parameter selection. This made programing sounds a bit of a pain. The optional controller, the JP800 fixed this but it costs a fortune today (and is NOT included in this sale), but there is a clone now available, the DT-800 controller from DTronics at a fraction of the price. Well worth checking out if your reservation is lack of hardware parameter control.

Its a big machine and fairly heavy. I wont send this one by post or courier so please note it is collection only from Milton Keynes. Note I am away from 9th April for 1 week.” Click here to visit listing on eBay

Roland JX-8P

” Vintage Roland JX-8p classic synthesizer.

Kind of getting out of playing so most of my stuff is leaving. When I got this, it was a hot mess, a moron had touch it but I was able to get everything fix and working properly unlike the moron. The unit has been completely cleaned on the inside, each key has been cleaned, key contacts cleaned. Everything works like it should now and it is remarkably in great condition for its age. all sliders work, tactile buttons are solid with very legible print on them.

The only thing I was not able to do for this synth was to find original screws for the side panels. The “Moron” put it back together with wood decking screws. Now I was able to round up a couple of original screws and couple that I was just able to get to work. It does need a few more. I live in a smaller city that just does not have parts, so I gave up looking. None the less it does not affect playability of this amazing vintage synth. Not many of these can be found on eBay (in the USA) so get this one while you can. ” Click here to visit listing on eBay

Roland JX-8P Project Machine

“Roland JX8P (sn# 530413) that needs a bit of TLC. Middle C won’t play any sound. Highest G key has a scratch on it. I feel like it just freezes sometimes. Side panels are missing screws amd because of this Pitch wheel feels a bit loose but this does not affect pitch wheel function. I will try to find some replacement screws to install on side panels before shipping. Absolutely needs some work and sold AS IS. ”

Roland JX-8P with Roland PG-200 Controller

“Roland JX-8P Vintage Analogue Polyphonic MIDI Synthesizer + PG800 Controller. Condition is “Used”.

240V voltage.

Works great including – unusually – aftertouch (albeit you need to use a lot of “energy” as expectable).

Some scratches but overall good condition.

A few buttons require a bit extra strength but they all work fine and the PG800 makes them totally redundant.

The included PG800 literally transforms the synth and it becomes a pleasure to program.

I’m also including a Roland memory card, to save presets. ” Click here to visit listing on eBay

Roland JX-8P

“Looks to be in fairly good condition overall although I would recommend a service due to the age. Everything seems to work alright, all the keys work, membrane buttons all work although 9-16 seemed to need a firm press and the pitch bend wheel is a bit loose (still works in all 3 directions though) but the case looks good and generally solid. Bear in mind this is probably about 35 years old!” Click here to search for synths on eBay
