“One of my all-time favorite synths with a big, fat, unique analog sound that also incorporates some of the percussive attacks of the DX-7 along with it’s analog fatness. It’s in overall good shape with some minor scratches and scuffing.

A Roland MC-16 memory cartridge included, loaded up with some cool JX-8P sounds!

One of the best features of the JX is the expressive aftertouch feature that can be used to boost things such as volume, modulation, brightness, opening of filters, etc. just by pressing down a little harder on the keys you are holding down. Unfortunately, on virtually every JX-8P in the world, the aftertouch no longer works or is very, very faint due to age. I’ve owned almost a dozen JX-8Ps through the years and it was an issue on each and every one of them as well as virtually any you’ll find for sale elsewhere.

It’s a tedious process to restore the aftertouch on one of these, but I’ve gotten very good at it. The synth gets opened up and the keybed removed. All 61 key springs are removed, then all the keys, one by one. While out, I gave the keys a good sudsy bath and removed all the dirty and grime of a 30+ year old synth. The aftertouch assembly which runs the length of the keybed is taken apart and meticulously cleaned to remove the oxidation that causes it to go out. Reassembly is nerve wracking and usually takes two sets of hands to pull off trying to lay a long metal ribbon atop 5 end to end carbon rubberized strips that sit on top of a gold rail and lay a heavy rubber cap onto of the whole assembly without knocking it askew and having to retry.

Anyhow, the aftertouch was fixed this week and now is expressive and strong without being overly touchy. You’ll enjoy it. If tested all key keys and functions and everything is working perfectly as far as I can tell. It got a good cleaning, inside and out while it was opened up to restore the aftertouch.

Included is the synth, memory cartridge and owners manual on disc. The original magnet with the patch listing is included. You can use it or not use it and position it wherever you like. I bought you a brand new power cable so you won’t get a 30 year old worn out one with your purchase.” Click here to visit listing on eBay

“Keyboard has most parts except misc screws. All boards appear to be intact. Does not power on.

I tested power supply. There is some power and not sure why it does not go to rest of keyboard.

Power cord not included.”

“For sale is this Roland. I tested it and all is working but, as you can see in the pictures it is in bad cosmetic condition. If you don’t care too much about the look. I think is your chance to get it cheap. Anyways it needs the power cord as well. ( not included ). I tested it all and all is working but obviously cosmetically it is in rough condition. This is a used item” Click here to visit listing on eBay

“Selling this classic synth because I just don’t use it anymore. It’s got scratches and scuffs but everything is functional. It’s also missing a couple screws on the sides that connect the hood to the wooden foundation, so the metallic hood wiggles if you try to lift it. But again, everything holds together and works just fine. Keyboard comes with power supply. Thanks!” Click here to visit listing on eBay

“Uniqe collectors vintage Roland JX-8P originally owned by the 80s Rock Band “Bite the Bullet”.
The synth comes with the memory card containing the sounds created by the band using the PG-800 prorammer, which is included in the sale and featured in their first album released in 1989.
The PG-800 is an essential editing tool for the JX-8P and can also be used during live performance.
A copy of the CD “Bite the Bullet” is also included in the sale.
Don’t miss out on this unique and exiting opportunity to own one of the most iconic synthesizers of the 80s.
It is in good working order and recently serviced.
As with much loved vintage equipment, it shows some battle scars, a couple of the slider knobs are missing and these are shown in the photos.
I personally think it adds kudos to this fantatic synth. ”

“I bought this brand new in 1985. It works great. There is some wear in spots on the plastic, but nothing that is ugly or detrimental to its appearance (see photos for condition) . It was used on thousands of recordings in my in demo production studio, as well as several record releases. I am downsizing my studio, which is the reason I am parting with it. It comes with the original road case that Roland made. The case works, but one of the three hinges is now missing. Included is the original manual. This thing has been a workhorse for me. It has not traveled anywhere since 1990. Prior to that I did some gigs with it, but it always traveled in the protective case. It has some of the best strings I have ever heard, and many of the other sounds are unique and cool.” Click here to visit listing on eBay
