"Turbo charged Juno 106 with Kiwi Upgrade and Overlay! Here we have a Roland Juno 106 with the fantastic Kiwi upgrade and rare Kiwi Overlay in Excellent condition especially considering the age of this classic. The Kiwi Mod opens up whole new sonic territories to what is already a much loved synthesizer.

The Kiwi mod brings much welcomed features such as an Arpeggiator, Sequencer, a second Envelope, expanded preset Memory, Software Editor, and more. This Juno has been kept in great condition with only a couple minor scuffs here and there. Most notable would be a scratch in the Overlay under the "Kiwi-106" logo and a very tiny knick in the Overlay above the "KYBD" slider. There are some small scuffs on the underside. Please see the pictures for reference to decide if this beauty is for you. In my honest opinion these are minor and the overall condition of this synth is truly Excellent.

The previous owner had this recently serviced by This Old Synth so it is ready to rock and roll. Yes, the voice chips have been serviced and are free of the dreaded plastic coating. The sliders are smooth with zero unwanted noise. All buttons work on the first try with no issues. The Chorus sounds pristine without the unwanted hiss commonly found in these chips.

This is an absolutely wonderful specimen in fantastic shape both sonically and cosmetically. The Kiwi is truly an upgrade breathing new life and attitude into the Juno 106. A hybrid masterpiece of Vintage Sonics + Modern Features make this stunning instrument one of my all time favorites!"
