Roland Jupiter-6 Vintage Analog Synthesizer

via this auction

"Just serviced. All sliders, buttons, knobs, keys work as they should and a fresh battery was installed for years of reliable patch storage. Does not have the Europa mod installed. I personally do not recommend europa, I owned a Europa Jupiter before and it had a habit of glitching out and removed the clock-in function which was essential for using directly with drum machines.

The Jupiter-6 was stored in a case for most of its lifetime and the case foam melted onto the synth. Luckily the case was form fitted so it did not get onto the sliders, controls, and keys, but chassis has been covered with melted foam appears to have dried and fused with the finish. I’m not sure how to remove it properly and I don’t want to risk but it’s purely cosmetic and the synth is fully functional.

I do not want to attempt to remove the foam myself in fear of damaging the synth so I will leave that up to the owner. Besides the foam, the synth is really clean."
