For all the fans of Darude - "Sandstorm," for sale is Roland's first analog-modeling synth from 1996, the Roland JP-8000.

It's a powerful and versatile synth that can sound like any number of vintage analog synthesizers. It's got all the knobs and buttons to play with to your little heart's desire.

A great synth- lots of fun and sounds awesome. You can even upload custom patches to it with an inexpensive MIDI to USB adapter, just check out Planet-Groove online.

Replaced the nvram battery a few years ago, and it should still be good for another few years. Not a hard time getting to it when you need to replace it, though. You will need to re-calibrate the ribbon controller once you do, and you will also lose any custom patches if I remember correctly.

Overall in pretty good shape, with only a few scratches and dings here and there. Thankfully, whatever material Roland used for the skins hasn't turned into awful petroleum goo, yet. So that's nice. No broken or sticky keys, nothing functionally wrong.

I can set it up for demo for anyone who is interested.

No case for it, unfortunately, but I am happy to deliver to the buyer.

I work from 8-5, so I prefer text. You can reach me at (three one eight) four four six - one seven zero three.

Emails are fine, too. Just put "Wicked Synth" somewhere in the subject line, or I will have to ignore the email.
