Roland Jupiter 8 Vintage Analog Synthesizer w/Mods SN 171670


via this auction

"THE INSTRUMENT:
ROLAND Jupiter 8 12-bit Vintage analog synthesizer in very good playable condition. It sounds INCREDIBLE! Cosmetically very nice with only a few scratches from normal use. A couple of the pots are a bit scratchy sounding when adjusted. I would recommend a general servicing as it has not been serviced in a while.
Rare JLCooper "PATCH 120" three bank memory expansion installed and it works!
DCB connector was installed after purchase (untested)
Flight case included. Pelican "top-load" flight case included with sale
INSTRUMENT HISTORY & OWNERS:
This JP8 was originally owned and purchased new by Chris Rhyne. Chris was the studio and touring keyboardist for Gino Vannelli, Santana and Jean Luc Ponty. Also, it was part of his on screen arsenal of keyboards for his 10 year run as musical director on the Merv Griffin show in the 80's. He told me that he backed up everyone from Streisand to Pavarotti with this incredible synth. Also owned by lead singer of VERY famous rock band that's in the Grammy hall of fame."
