Roland JP8 w/MIDI

We are Brokering this as-new condition vintage Roland flag-ship synthesizer for and on behalf of our UK customer

Came into stock: 22nd March 2016.

Servicing Status: Full service by KSR will commence post-sale.

Remarks: We’re delighted to be able to offer what we consider to be one of the finest analogue polysynths ever produced – the Roland Jupiter 8. We supplied this actual JP8 to its current owner back in 2006, so we know the synth well, and have maintained it for them over the last decade.

As many of you will know, we often need to subject these models to extensive operational and cosmetic restoration (costing over £2800 GBP) to bring them up to the highest possible standard, however, this actual JP8 had already gone through this process in 2008.

We call this ‘Total Restoration’ and the work produces an almost factory new-looking machine as all the metal the panels have been stripped and re-sprayed & screen-printed, and the aluminum end-cheeks re-anodised. All the electronics have been completely overhauled, key-bed refurbished and even a brand new new perspex display etc. This is the highest level restoration we can offer for these wonderful vintage synthesizers. RL Music has developed this highly specialised service for the Jupiter 8 as professionally prepared instruments of this standard are in such high demand from customers with high expectations of quality. You will not find any other business around the world offering anything close this level of restoration.

This Jupiter 8 has resided since 2006 (and its subsequent Total Restoration in 2008) in the owners UK home studio, and has been kept covered when not used, so has been lovingly cared for. This is a very reluctant sale by the owner but they are investing into larger scale music projects, otherwise it would have never come up for sale.

This Jupiter 8 is a 12 bit version (serial number is: 121xxx) and has been retro-fitted with a Encore MIDI kit. The tuning on this earlier 12 bit version is rock-solid, and the owner has confirmed that the synth is more than stable enough for live production work.

The Jupiter 8 is a professional grade vintage instrument that’s only ever going to become more sought after and rare, so here is your opportunity to buy and absolutely stunning, top level restored example that’s got to be a keeper!

Runs on EU 220V that has an IEC socket fitted, so has a removable power-cable. Also supplied is an original owners manual and period Roland Sales Brochure for the Jupiter 8. In addition, there is a very smart aluminum flight-case included in the sale, although we will not ship the synth in this, so for any buyer able to collect it, then it will be included free of charge.

Sold with a full RL Music 3 month warranty.

As with all Brokered Sales, the synth will be fully serviced post-sale, before it’s sent to its new owner. We do this to ensure that the instrument leaves us in perfect operational condition, and it is backed up by our full warranty to give the new owner complete peace of mind. The servicing is carried out as a priority once the the sale has been completed, and although it will delay shipping/delivery by a short time, we know from experience that customers are happy to wait.

Price: £7490 GBP.

Availability: This Roland Jupiter 8 is now SOLD as at 25th April 2016.
