Description

Offered for sale is this Roland Juno 60 in amazing cosmetic condition and excellent working order.

 

It has a few minor scuffs and scratches but is incredibly clean for a synth that's around 30 years old: the 'wooden' end cheeks are in almost perfect condition with only very minor nicks and chips (see photos below - further detailed photos to follow) . It's been stored for many years so hasn't had the usual ravages of three decades' use.

 
This is one of the best Juno 60s we've heard: the chorus is virtually silent (most Juno 60s have a significant degree of hiss when the chorus is engaged). As can be seen in the photos, it's in incredible condition for its age. There's a small area that's been touched-up just over middle C, but it's barely-noticeable.
 
It's just been serviced and PAT-tested by James Walker at Synth Repair Services and is in perfect working order.
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)

Prices of Juno 60s have rocketed in recent years 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 as new - overall it is in very good order indeed for a thirty year-old synth.

If you want Midi, then the best non-invasive way of achieving this is using a CHD Elektroservis DCB Midi controller - get in touch for details
.

It is a UK 240v model:
the plug will be removed before shipping if it is not required by the buyer.
We would prefer to deliver by independent courier - this has been factored in to the price - buyers in remote areas please get in touch before bidding to see if there's a delivery surcharge. Discount available for buyers collecting and we welcome bank transfer or cash on collection. For deliveries outside the EU, we will ship in a case - please ask for the exact shipping cost.

Vintage synths sometimes do not travel well, and couriers are less than careful: we have plenty of experience in packing vintage equipment for shipping and do our utmost to make sure this will arrive as it left us, but due to the delicate nature of vintage synths, we can offer no guarantee once it leaves our hands. Please understand that shipping is at the buyer's risk:  it will be fully-insured and trackable, but any damage claim must be made through the shipping insurance, not Paypal. It can sometimes be necessary to service/calibrate synths after shipping.

 

We are passionate about supplying high quality vintage gear to our customers and go the extra mile to ensure complete satisfaction.

Shipping discount available if paying by bank transfer.

 

Tax (VAT)

Some of our gear will have VAT at 20% added in the UK/EU, but a lot of it won't. This should hopefully clarify the situation but if you have any questions then please get in touch.

ITEMS WITH VAT:

  • These items will have two prices visible: with and without the tax.
  • If you are buying in the UK/EU you will receive an invoice showing the tax component.
  • If you are buying these items outside the EU when you get to the check out and enter your shipping location you will be charged the ex-VAT price.
  • VAT-free sales are also possible to businesses within the EU with a valid VAT number. You will need to contact us in order to buy via this means.

    ITEMS WITHOUT VAT:

    • Much of what we sell is classified as "Second Hand Goods" and so while we still pay some tax, there is no recoverable/deductible component for sales to any part of the world.
    • So, the price you see is the price you pay wherever you are.

    ALSO NOTE:

    • Shipping charges are also subject to VAT at 20% within the UK/EU - this is included within the prices you see for shipping to those areas - it is not shown separately in the cart but will be shown on the VAT invoice you receive with your goods.
    SHIPPING

    WE OFFER FREE SHIPPING TO THE UK! There are some exclusions for distant areas and islands (see below), and also some occasional exclusions for very large/heavy/valuable items which will be clearly noted in the item descriptions.

    IMPORTANT! BUYING MORE THAN ONE ITEM FROM OUTSIDE OF THE UK?

    • You will need a bespoke shipping quote!
    • Our shipping calculator on here won't give you the right figure (and may well not give you one at all).
    • Please get in touch via the contact page and we can give an accurate shipping figure for multiple items.
    • If it is outside office hours and you are concerned about missing a piece of gear then buy it at the quoted shipping rate, send us a message saying what else it is you want to add, and we will deal with the discount once we are back on email.
    • You can do this with absolute confidence that we will give you a full refund if the final shipping quote is doesn't work for you.

    ==========

    We are very experienced at packing and shipping valuable and sensitive gear worldwide - Binson Echorecs, large valve amps, vintage synths - you name it, we've sent it and it's arrived in one piece. Obviously from time to time with vintage items there are times when gear arrives in need of some adjustment or calibration, and some times a piece of gear that was working 100% just chooses the day after arriving for a new fault to develop - however, we are also very experienced at dealing with these occurences and will always work with you to solve the problem

    The shipping prices for our gear vary considerably depending on the type of gear, value and destination. Currently the only way for you to see shipping is to put the item you are interested in the cart and then either use the shipping estimator or go into the check out process. Or just contact us and we'll tell you what you need to know.

    Also note that we have have not entered automatic shipping for every country. The countries we ship to most often will have shipping rates and we are in the process of adding more shipping fees to the check out process. But if you are looking at an item that doesn't have the fee information you need then please use the contact page or call on 07543 855788.

    If you are considering a purchase and want to check you have our best rate then please always contact us direct and we will give you an exact figure.

    Also note that for some items we are able to discount shipping to North America - continental USA and Canada. The fees you see at check out will take this discount into account. But if you have a question... you know what to do.

    WHO DO WE USE?

    We use Royal Mail, UPS and DPD/Interlink - it depends on the item and destination as to which is the most economical. If you have a preference then we should be able to accommodate it (but we may need to pass on any additional costs).

    EXCLUSIONS TO FREE UK SHIPPING:

    We are not able to ship free to some of the UK islands (e.g. Channel Islands) and also to some of the further reaches of Scotland. If you think you might be in one of those area and want an accurate shipping quote before you buy then please get in touch.

    There are also some items which we cannot offer free shipping on to the UK. These will be clearly noted in the description.
