broken VCF slider on Roland Juno 60

Post by adultbraces » Fri Dec 24, 2010 4:42 pm

hey friends,

i know very very little about synths & synth repair in particular, but today i broke the VCF slider off of my pristine Juno 60. here's what the slider looks like now:

i've found someone who can repair it 2.5 hours away from where i live in north Mississippi, but i can't bear to be without the juno 60 for long as i record with it nearly every day. is this something i can repair myself if i've never opened one of these things up before?

apologies for the "n00b" question, but i'm hoping you guys could give me some insight into the difficulty of repairing the slider myself.... OR... if you knew anyone in memphis, tn who could help me with this, that would be a much shorter drive for me.

thanks!

Does the slider still work, if you stick something in the hole to move the wiper to change the cutoff? That would get you by until you get it repaired/replaced.

Looks like the slider piece is bent, it might be better to just replace the entire slider.

There are places on ebay that have parts for Junos, you should be able to get a replacement slider. Then with some disassembly and soldering you can be back on the road!
