Roland Jupiter 8

We are Brokering this instrument for and on behalf of our EU client.

Came into stock: December 2020.

Restoration Status: A full service by KSR was been carried out in December, so this instrument is ready for sale now.

Remarks: This Jupiter 8 forms part of a larger collection of vintage synths that we are brokering for our client. This Synthacon has been in our client’s collection for several years.

Roland Jupiter 8 (14bit model) – Serial Number: 212296, has been retrofitted with a MIDI kit.

We are always very happy to sell any Jupiter 8 and this one is a good representative example that has MIDI as well. What can we say that hasn’t already been written about the JP8…honestly, nothing new.  However, we’ve seen relative values for this flagship vintage analogy poly-synth climb sharply in recent years, so they’ve become unaffordable to most people, which is a real shame.

The overall condition is very good, with only the normal amount of wear we would expect to see on a synth this age, although there is a blemish that you can see on the back-plane, on the right-hand side, which we have included a picture of to show, for full disclosure.  

We discussed the price at some length with our client and agreed to keep the sale price as reasonable as is possible for this model, so we think you will find this cheaper by far than any currently available for sale in the world right now, in comparable condition, fully serviced and sold with a guarantee. 

This JP8 operates on EU/UK 220V.  We will also supply a PDF copy of the owners manual.

As the instrument is being Brokered through RL Music, it will be sold with a full 3-month warranty and we can ship worldwide.  

Note on Demos, and because…Covid:  The JP8 is currently based in Surrey (UK) with our tech, Kent at KSR.  Although there are strict Covid-19 restrictions in place throughout the UK at present, Kent has very kindly offered for anyone who would like to see and demo the synth before buying it, to demo it at his premises.  Kent is able to set up the synth in a place that meets distancing rules, that’s safe for him and the customer, so if you want to check the synth out then that option is open to you. 

Alternately (recommended), Kent can produce short video demo’s to show the working condition of the JP8, but this is by request only.  If we get a single request to do this then we will, of course, upload that to the KSR YouTube channel and probably just post it here in the listing, but Kent’s a very busy guy (good techs always are) so he’s not had the time to proactively do this for us and/or this Jupiter 8.

Packing & Shipping: We can ship this world-wide, although the packing & shipping cost is not included in the sale price below, and is subject to quotation.  Again, the Covid issues are affecting our packing suppliers, so there may be some short delays in getting materials produced for shipping, although courier companies all seem to be operating normally.  We are happy to discuss your requirements so please email us if you have any questions on the logistics.

Sales Price: £11,990 GBP

Availability: This Jupiter 8 with MIDI is now SOLD – this sales listing was updated on 19th February 2021.

Note on pictures, again due to Covid: Click on the thumbnail for a higher resolution photo of the actual JP8 for sale.  Due to the Covid-19 restrictions, Kent has offered to photograph the synth at his premises in Surrey, so these photos come straight from him using the best photo-equipment he has available. It’s our workaround for the Covid issues/restrictions and we’re very grateful to Kent for helping us all out…but he’s like that.

If you require specific pictures not already featured of the instrument then please contact us so we can request that Kent at KSR can accommodate your request, but there may be a short delay in getting this done for us/you.
