Roland Jupiter 6 Synthesizer with Europa Mod + Wooden End Cheeks Synth

via this auction

"All of the Jupiters have a sound that was unlike any other synthesizer and the JP-6 lives up to the billing. The sound is due in part to classic analog Roland technology in its filters, modulation capabilities and a thick cluster of 12 analog oscillators at 2 per voice. Easy and intuitive programming via front panel sliders, knobs and buttons for all your tweaking needs.

A few minor scuffs here and there as you can expect for something which is nearly thirty years old, but nevertheless - this is a incredible analog synth beast which has been regularly serviced at James Walker’s Synthrepair. He actually commented it was one of the best that he had come across. A reluctant sale but my workflow has changed over the past year and i've gone back to an ITB setup.

The Europa firmware upgrade gives the JP-6 an up-to-date and deeply comprehensive MIDI implementation. All parameters are controllable via Continuous Controller or SysEx. Europa also features an extensive arpeggiator which will sync to MIDI clock with programmable clock divisors and rhythms, and has about 50 more playback variations than the JP-6's original Up, Down, Up/Down, and Down/Up. A Europacized Jupiter-6 is a thoroughly modern synth with a classic sound, great for sound design and will only go up in value."
