Stunning near mint Roland Juno-60 for sale serviced and in perfect working order. What sets this example apart from many we see (when we see them – they are not common – is this mostly Nils Frahm’s fault??) is the condition. This is as close as you could wish to owning a new Juno 60.
Comes complete with the original Roland case that’s protected it so well over the years (the case has some damage to the corners).
NOTE: This synth is awaiting service and will ship within one week of purchase. Price includes the fitting of a new 120 or 240v transformer (synth is currently 100v). Full set of photos to follow.
This Juno 60 will have been serviced to our usual high standard. They are becoming increasingly-hard to find – is this Nils Frahm’s fault?.
CONDITION: In superb cosmetic condition, there are no notable scratches or dings on the face aside from one tiny nick near the pitch bend section. Some of the blue section of lettering has faded slightly. The end cheeks are unmarked. See photos for more information on cosmetic condition.
For sales in UK/EU the price will include VAT. VAT-free sales are possible to businesses and individuals in the EU (outside the UK) with a valid VAT Number – please get in touch if you wish to buy this way.
There are no known faults with this synth – the patch memory system is working fine and is chock-full of the glorious analogue sounds which make these classic Junos so highly-regarded and sought-after. In use, sliders, pots and buttons move smoothly and noiselessly. (Please note: it is always possible with vintage equipment that some crackly pots/sliders may develop over time when equipment has not been used – even during shipping – this can usually be easily rectified either by use or with a bit of switch-cleaning spray).
MORE JUNO-60 INFO
Prices of Juno 60s have rocketed in recent years (still looking at you Nils Frahm) and continue to rise: to these ears both the 6 and 60 have that larger than life analogue magic, and sound richer and deeper than the 106; both have the wonderful arpeggiator, but the 60 has the advantage of the patch memory system, which makes it so easy to spend hours programming and saving sounds for swift recall at a later date. Far more than just an investment – it’s a great-sounding instrument that’s a pleasure to use. Like all old Junos, it’s not daunting to program and rewards the user with a broad palette of rich, analogue goodness – I can lose myself for hours programming and playing these babies during testing.
Juno 60s are increasingly hard to find in this condition: whilst we wouldn’t describe it as mint – that term is reserved for very rare examples that appear to be completely as new – overall it is in exceptionally good order indeed for a thirty year-old synth
If you want on-board Midi, then the best non-invasive way of achieving this is using a CHD Elektroservis DCB Midi controller – or Kenton’s DCB midi controller is a good non-invasive Midi solution.
We can't stop here, this is bat country! Our next auction (November 22nd) features some head-turning, show-stopping synths, however we also wanted to put the spotlight...
