Roland JX-3P with Roland PG-200 Controller

“I am letting go of my beloved Roland JX-3P with PG200.

This is a fantastic synth and in brilliant working order. I have owned for a year and since purchase it has not failed me or made any unlikely noises.

I purchased the PG200 controller after buying the synth so I can control the parameters faster, so the PG200 also comes with its own leather case.

It comes with a 2 pin plug but I have supplied a converter that was provided to me when I bought it.” Click here to visit listing on eBay

Roland JX-3P with Roland PG-200 Programmer


Recently-ish serviced around 2019 including every key removed and the contacts cleaned. Kept in my professional smoke-free studio since 1999, never gigged. The sticker on the PG200 is from a Warp Records Boards Of Canada promotion from the late 90’s (if you are reading this, I assume this excites you) so I didn’t remove it. All features work. Great step sequencer built in which you can also trigger via any signal via the trigger in (amazing with drums). Polyphonic. MIDI. Awesome filter.

What takes it to the next level is the even rarer, included genuine PG200 Controller. This makes the synth super-expressive with a combination of dials and switches laid out in a really user-friendly way. Due to the compact size of the controller it becomes second-nature where everything is and you can fly around it changing sounds.

All other JX-3P I’ve seen on ebay come without the PG200 Controller, which sells for around £500 separately (plus huge postage from Japan usually). I am only selling as a bundle though, as I believe you truly need both, and these two have been together for 23 years in my studio and I don’t want to separate them, even though I could probably make more selling separately. It’s a real “one take” bit of kit, as you feel totally linked with the synthesis and can get the sound out of your head easy. The sounds are incredible and it’s a real joy to play.

As used by legends such as Aphex Twin, Orbital, FSOL, The Orb etc. I don’t really want to sell it to be frank, but needs must & I will miss it. Give it a good home please.

It has been treated very Lovingly, kept clean in my studio and not gigged-with. Absolutely fantastic condition. A rare treat.” 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”

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 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 JX-3P with Roland PG-200

“Roland JX-3P, PG-200 Controller, and Calzone hard-shell tour case. Condition is Used. What a great sounding analog unit. This keyboard was put away in it’s case 15 years ago. I’m the original owner.

It played and operated fine when I stored it away. Currently, it needs a little attention: 9 keys are intermittent, the cable from the programmer to the keyboard is needed, and the foam in the case has deteriorated.

Based upon the reserve I’ve set, there’ll be plenty left for a tune-up.”
