This particular synth was serviced recently by Synth Spa with their Full Survival Restoration, which costs $350. What this entails is:
1. PANEL BOARD REBUILD:
All faders rebuilt, all non-functioning buttons replaced, leds replaced.
2. MODULE BOARD REBUILD:
All six 80017a voice chips restored and guaranteed working, calibrated to factory standards, and small defects within the module board repaired.
3. POWER BOARD REBUILD:
Large electrolytic capacitors replaced and power jack converted to the standard 3 prong computer cable receptacle.
4. CPU BOARD REBUILD:
A new battery and mounitng chassis (originally they were soldered in).
5. KEYBED CONTACTS CLEANED
6. BENDER BOARD REBUILD:
Clean volume & portamento knobs, switch, sliders, and bender contacts.
If you’ve done any research on this synth (and I would hope you have if you’re looking to buy it), then you know that with all the Juno series, eventually the voice chips start to go. It’s not a question of if, just when. This synth also had a lot of the faders replaced, which was an additional cost. So after all that, this synth plays great and sounds great. The only issue is that the HPF slider is fragile. These particular faders are very hard to come by because it’s a 4 position fader, so they weren’t able to replace it, but they did repair it as best they could. It does work fully work, it’s just a little loose, so you have to be careful when adjusting it and use two fingers. Overall, this synth is in great shape. Yes, you can find a Juno for cheaper, but sooner or later you’ll have to spend money to get the voices repaired. Synth Spa does a great job, but it does take them a very long time (I waited four months for this one to come back), so why not get one that’s already had the work done. ” Click here to visit listing on eBay
