My new Roland Juno-6. WARNING: SYNTH p**n AHEAD

Post by ensoniqphreak » Sat Feb 06, 2010 8:16 pm

So.... I picked this up on ebay for less than 400, shipping included. I expected it to be in *okay* condition as per the age of these boards. Boy was a wrong. She is in amazing condition, only missing two slider caps (VCF and DCO control for the p wheel, no biggie at all), beautiful side panels, NO scratches or wear on the front panel, only light oxidation on the keys. And aside from the occasional crackle from the filter frequency slider (I can still sweep cleanly with the ENV amount so this to, is less than a major issue, but one I would like to address at some point in the future), all her bells and whistles function like new! Since I am at college (in my own APT tho, I would NEVER bring a Juno into a dormitory...) I am presently separated from the bulk of my gear at home.... so this arriving satisfied a certain carnal gear lust. At any rate, here are some photos. Unfortunately from my phone, but they are okay quality. More to come. ALSO: I have a DX7 on the way that I also picked up for a steal..... look for more gear smut to come! So in short, my Juno is a hot piece of synth a*s... what do yall think?

hahaha, if only the Juno-6 had a slider to make the whole machine *turn* blurry.... that would be a sick synth indeed! I wouldent be surprised if you actually could do it with FM. Well now I know my mission for the DX7....... I am also still trying to find a synth that will make coffee and fry bacon.... all three things in my morning routine (tweak synths, eat breakfast, drink coffee) could be taken care of in one device... 8-)

I keep mine in the lounge and not the studio - not just for the satisfaction of playing it there, but it looks so good!
Sure there're old synths with more knobs and so on - but the Juno 6 has a regal simplicity to it. :D

No I think it just looks that way in the picture because I have them angled differently. They're the same size.

Synth p**n is a very appropriate name for this thread. All of these pictures share that soft focus that all those old p**n mags that I stole from my grandfather had.

I used to own JU-6. It is a h**l of a machine. I sold when I got JU-60 with Roland's MD8 DCB to MIDI Converter . There is something about Juno 6 & 60. I was never interested in 106. I could be wrong but 6 & 60 are the real s**t.

I agree that the 6 & 60 are awesome synths, I love both of them. From a collector stand point I wouldn't mind having a 106 but don't feel it absolutely necessary.
