Roland Juno-60 for sale. Meticulously overhauled over way too many hours to promote longevity. We fully disassembled this unit and cleaned it inside and out, recapped the power supply, replaced the power cord, removed and cleaned all keys and keyboard, removed, disassembled and cleaned all pots, cleaned key contacts, removed and opened all switches and cleaned all switch contacts, replaced the battery and loaded in what we believe are the original factory sounds. This huge investment of time and money has resulted in an instrument that's working better than the rest and that will hopefully stay that way a lot longer than others on the market. The PWM fader works fine but does not move as smoothly as the other faders around the 5 position. We would have simply replaced it with a new one but don't have a source for replacements. Please don't be deterred by our attention to detail and disclosure of the things other sellers either wouldn't notice or wouldn't mention if they did.

The JU-60 is a classic, well known for its beautiful warm tone and playability. It's 6 note polyphonic so, unlike many of its predecessors, it can play chords. Theres also a built in arpeggiator! It sounds has a warm, unique tone. Part of this is due to the chorus circuit which gives sounds real dimension and is particularly good for strings and pads. This synth also delivers great bass tones. It's similar to the Juno-106 but some people feel it has a warmer, sweeter tone to it. Unlike the Juno-6, its got patch memory so you can save your own sounds for instant recall. It's got enough features to let you create lots of sounds but is also simple enough for the beginner who is looking for a great sounding analog synth to start with! This synth was apparently used by many famous musicians including: Vince Clarke (Yaz, Erasure), The Beloved, Cabaret Voltaire, Enya, Level 42, Men At Work, Howard Jones, George Michael (Everything She Wants), the Eurythmics, Jupiter One, The Cure and many others. But dont let this list discourage you - you dont have to be a synthpopper to make great use of this synth!
