"Diseased" Roland JP-8000 Classic Analog Modeling Synthesizer

Hadn't heard of this one before.

"It has the JP-8000 desease. Apparently, this is a very common problem. When you first switch it on, the output is quiet and distorted. However, after about 5-7 minutes (a little warm-up time), it roars into life and stays like this until the next switch-off and cool down. Apparently, this is due to a specific capacitor which costs about 80p and a bit of solder, but this is much beyond my capabilities. This problem started not long after I had it and has never gotten any worse or let me down."
