“Roland JX-8P Polyphonic Synthesizer With Memory Cartridge and Manual
 We were told that it works fine, but have not tested it ourselves as we don’t have an amp. It powers up fine.  
We were also told that the former owner had duct taped it to the stand that it was on, and duct tape and residue remains on the sides. It is hard to see.
We will ship with UPS, USPS, or FedEx.
This comes with the manual shown and the memory cartridge and power cord. It will NOT come with the black and yellow box shown in the pictures as we discovered that box was empty after taking the photos.
Item weighs about 27 lbs.” Click here to visit listing on eBay

“Vintage Analog Polyphonic Roland JX-8P Synthesizer: Sounds Analog Amazing..

Bought this used a few years back and has seen light work in a non smoking studio. Has that lush analog sound that you are looking for. One of the last “bargain” Roland classic analogs. All functions work as far as I can tell and is in overall good shape with a few chassis dents and discolorations from before my ownership. (See pics) Sounds lovely and will only be going up in price, like other classic Rolands. ” Click here to visit listing on eBay

“Roland JX-8P Vintage Polyphonic Analogue Synthesizer.

Working but the after touch does not work and there are sticking keys where the sound of a note holds. Works really well if you use it with midi to play from another keyboard. Has scratches and marks on the bodywork. ” Click here to visit listing on eBay

“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

” 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
