# Roland JD-800

JD-800, Roland @ 04 March 2018

” Up for sale is the legendary Roland JD 800 synthesizer. The unit has the infamous red glue problem that has rendered the keys unplayable but this issue does not affect the module at all and as a sound source/module it works as intended. Cosmetically the synth is in very good condition as can be seen in the pictures and all the knobs/buttons/faders and functions work as they should (this can be seen in the demo video included with the listing).
I have owned this keyboard for the past few years and have never had an issue with it as a sound module/synthesizer. What I have always done is use the main keyboard I have in my studio to send out MIDI (which I normally do with my other synths anyway) so the red glue problem on the JD 800 has never been an issue for me.
As a matter of fact if you are handy enough there are plenty of instructions online on how to MOD the unit into a sound module only (as shown in the last picture) but in reality I never had the need nor desire to do it to mine.
This is a perfect opportunity for someone to get their hands on working JD 800 at a fraction of what they are fetching if they can live without the keys. ” Click here to visit listing on eBay
