“Roland JX-8P Analogue Synthesiser. All working 230V.
I got this synth in Japan quite a few years ago. Ive converted it to 230V, so no need for a transformer.
I did have the common issue with an occasional note hanging but this seems have been fixed after giving the key contacts a good clean. I have had no problems recently. The Aftertouch also works perfectly (a rarity on a JX8P!). All sliders and bender work as intended.
Cosmetically its pretty good. It does have a few marks and minor scratches but nothing major. The most significant point to note is that the membrane near preset 6 has a chip out of it. This does not effect operation in any way. The end caps are not split or cracked.
The JX-8P is a powerful analogue synth that, like many of the late 80’s had the hardware for parameter inputs replaced with a single slider and parameter selection. This made programing sounds a bit of a pain. The optional controller, the JP800 fixed this but it costs a fortune today (and is NOT included in this sale), but there is a clone now available, the DT-800 controller from DTronics at a fraction of the price. Well worth checking out if your reservation is lack of hardware parameter control.
Its a big machine and fairly heavy. I wont send this one by post or courier so please note it is collection only from Milton Keynes. Note I am away from 9th April for 1 week.” Click here to visit listing on eBay
