JX-8P, Roland @ 14 July 2019, “No Comments”

“I am not an expert but I plugged it up into an amp. It worked fine. Wasn’t staticky or anything. The different settings worked. I have the right power cord for it. It is nice functionally as far as I can tell and also nice cosmetically. The only (and very small thing) is the right side of the plastic chassis, if you pull on it it tries to lift up. I’m sure it just needs to be screwed in thats all. When I pick it up to move I pick it up by the middle of the body.

That’s all I know to say about it. I can assure you it will be packed WELL! I know how brutal carriers are. I will pack it well. I have shipped keyboards before I found in estate sales etc., including a Juno 106 and an Ensoniq, both with absolutely no problems. I’ve been packing and shipping a long time and I know how to do it correctly. ” Click here to visit listing on eBay

JX-8P, PG-800, Roland @ 23 June 2019, Comments Off on Roland JX-8P with Roland PG-800 Programmer

“I purchased these units last year for a band project that ended up falling through. Since that time they’ve never been gigged with and have been used very little. I’m clearing out some unused gear, so they must go. The JX-8P does have some wear, which is to be expected for its age, but all in all it’s in fairly good shape. The keys work and the patch membrane buttons all function as well. The PG-800 programmer works great and looks like it just came from the factory. Neither of these items have given me any trouble while in my possession.

Included is a sturdy ATA case I had custom made soon after I purchased the synth. It comes with a strip of placer foam to help hold the synth secure during transit. Also included with the JX is a copy of the manual and a very handy preset sound chart magnet that goes on the front panel. The PG-800 comes with the data cable, original manual, and a nice Roland shoulder strap case. If you want a complete analog synthesizer package, this is it!!” Click here to visit listing on eBay

“Roland JX-8P Polyphonic Synthesizer – DOES NOT POWER ON!! USE FOR PARTS!. Condition is For parts or not working. Unit is having trouble powering on. From a quick look inside the unit, it appears to need a new power transformer. Retail price for a new transformer is around $50.00. It would require some basic soldering skills to fix. This item also has some damage to one of the preset buttons on the front, the label itself has been scratched off but the button to select the preset seems to be functional. Item also has some writing on it with permanent marker. Item comes with power cord, but will need repairs to get powered up. Item is also missing a few screws on the side and bottom which may require ordering from manufacturer or other parts store. ” Click here to visit listing on eBay

“Great 80s Analog synth with digital controls and programming. FAT bass, horn, strings,etc. Note: the Aftertouch does not work like most of these synths from the 80s. The strip under the keyboard wears out. I didnt feel a need for Aftertouch so it didnt matter to me. This function is still available by external control however. There are some cosmetic blemishes which I have included in the photos.” Click here to visit listing on eBay

“Roland JX8P Vintage Polyphonic Synthesiser Digitally controlled Analogue. Condition is Used.

This is a 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 controller, which is included in the sale and featured in their first album released in 1989. The PG-800 controller 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 many battle scars and these are shown in the photos. I personally think it adds to the kudos of this fantatic synth.
Due to the vintage and value of this item, it is collection only and I may be willing to deliver within a reasonable distance & cost. We can discuss and agree this during the sale.” Click here to visit listing on eBay

“Re-listed due to abject time waster.

I’m parting with my old friend, the Roland JX-8P. It’s been very well used, gigged all over the place.

It came from the USA so will need a power converter which I’ll throw in. It’s late 80s but I’m not sure of the exact date. 86 is in my mind from when I picked it up but don’t quote me.

Pros – presets are great, and editable. Midi compatible. Great responsive keyboard.

Cons – the aftertouch sensor is goosed, and I got a bit excited one night with the pitch bender and snapped it off so screwed it back in but the screws were too long and visible from the surface.”

“Roland JX-8P is a 61-key, velocity and aftertouch-sensitive, six-note polyphonic, fully analog synthesizer, in my possession since 1987. I gigged with it until the early 90’s and since then it has been part of my studio. Now the pleasure can be all yours. I have made two videos showing: that all the keys work; a random selection of the presets working – they all work; and midi in and out working. Happy to send these to you on whatsapp, just message me with your telephone number. The case comes with it, it is homemade and will be used to ship securely.

Keys are in great shape and work well. I love the Pianos, Strings, Pads and Leads on this synth. A little wear/discoloration on the left edge and top by the sliders, but otherwise very nice and a great example of this synth.” Click here to visit listing on eBay

“Excellent condition Roland JX8P synthesiser complete package including the PG800 Programmer in its original case, patch lead, M-16C Memory Card with MKS-30 Sample Sound, Roland sustain pedal, all manuals and plush lined flight case. Everything is in perfect working order having been looked after very well and I am only the second owner having bought it nearly new late 80’s. I am primarily playing acoustic pianos now so have now need for it anymore and haven’t used it for quite a while. It still sounds fantastic and all creative sounds can be arrived at in the digital mode. The top of the keyboard shows the digital filter map but having the programmer enables a smooth transition from creating in the digital mode to working in analogue. It’s like having your own moog. It has full midi capability (in, out, through), stereo and head phone outs together with Dynamics and After Touch functions and holds 96 patch programs (64 preset, 32 free + 32 more with the memory card). This truly is an impressive instrument package from piano sounds, electric dreams to “soundtrack” . The JX8P was used (and probably still is) by Blancmange, Bronski Beat, Kate Bush, The Cure, Go West, The Human League, Europe, Gary Numan, OMD etc. I am selling it as a complete set as it will be a great bonus to whoever buys it. I am based central UK in Northants and will only make it available for cash on collection. ”

JX-8P, Roland @ 01 July 2018, Comments Off on Roland JX-8P

“This JX-8P was used in performance for five or six years and has since been safely stored in my home studio. I have been the sole owner of this keyboard and have kept it in excellent condition. I have tested every slider, switch, button, and key, and they are all fully functional! I also tested the midi input and output and both work as expected. As you can see in the photos, the keyboard is in very good shape and shows only the minor imperfections that you would expect from normal usage.

Please Note: There is one feature of this synth that is not responsive and that is the after touch. Like so many of these older models, the conductive strips beneath the key bed have lost their sensitivity over time. I have cleaned the entire mechanism thoroughly but was unable to restore it. If after touch is important to you, I suggest you hook up a midi controller and play the JX-8P remotely.

This sale includes the original manual, two MIDI cables, two audio patch cables, the power cable, and a Roland sustain pedal. ” Click here to visit listing on eBay

“This is a vintage Roland JX-8P synthesizer. The keyboard is in good, used condition, but is NOT perfect. Two of the keys – marked with blue tape on them – do not work. On the inside, it looks like wood was added, and the plastic where the screws screw into is broken. It is missing screws, and some of the screws on the bottom casing are not original. It has scratches / scuffs. I am not an expert, so it may have more problems than listed. It does come with a power cord, but NO other accessories are included.

JX-8P, Roland @ 03 June 2018, Comments Off on Roland JX-8P

“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.” Click here to visit listing on eBay
