Roland S-10 Digital Sampling Keyboard For Sale. This unit was professionally cleaned and serviced, but please read on.

This unit came to us with a broken disk drive, due to a broken drive belt (which is extremely common in older disk drives). So we paid our tech for 2 hours of skilled synth tech time to service it. He replaced the belt, cleaned the head and felt pusher. Replaced the original battery and checked voltage, lubed slide pots and tested this unit. The modify button works well but the action is less clicky than the other buttons, which is something most sellers wouldnt notice or disclose if they did. One other thing we should point out is that we received this unit with a bunch of quick disks, but only two of them work, suggesting either the rest are bad (which is definitely possible since we see a high rate of ancient floppy disk failures) or its possible the drive is out of spec. Most people retrofit these with modern drive replacements that are much better than the originals. The reason we opted to repair the drive rather than replace it was so that someone who had a bunch of samples on quick disks but no longer had an s10 could load them into this unit. There's a chance this may not be possible if the disks are bad or if the drive is out of spec, so whoever buys this may want to go for the floppy drive emulator usb replacement option, which is cheap and which contains over 200 quick disks full of samples.
