It was trashed, I photographed the damage. Ebay and paypal tell you to send it back after contacting the seller. So this is what happened: ...

Re: Roland D70 keybed

Im hoping that there is actually something out there to clean them, the red gloop sticks to everything - whilst failing to stick the metal to the key. It is said that it happens mostly in hot countries, but I live in the north of England, it's not very hot here, I hadn't used the JD for a year or tw...

Re: Roland D70 keybed

They cost £1.50 each which is pretty cheap when you look at what some people sell them for. My D70 'oozes' but the U20 is still hanging in there. The gloop gets insid...

JD800 key cleaning

My JD800 has developed several defunct keys after being left unplayed for a while. I've cleaned several keyboard contacts before but not my JD. Can anyone tell me if there any pitfalls to watch out for.Thanks.

M1 for playing percussive sounds (from other synths or modules) including piano.
D50 for everything else including its own internal sounds.

Thats 230 volts + 10% to - 6% but most converters work. The 60 to 50 Hz may be a problem but my USA rated XV3080 works fine with a £10 transformer.

Tablas are mental and very under rated as a drum sound in western music.
