HOLD THE DANG PHONE!!! special pricing for Spring! Reduced through April P, if it lasts that long. Studio clearance MUST GO ON! Compare to others with or without Europa mod and you’ll see the value here.

Another "holy grail" vintage synth! This is a Roland Jupiter-6 in really good shape and fully operational. 6 voices, dual oscillators, multi-mode filter, great performance mod section and MIDI (albeit a basic, early implementation). This is a classic, and has lots of analog goodness. The multimode filter and sync/mod capabilities let you make some more unusual textures as compared to other dual-osc analog beasts. A ton has been written about this one; I suggest checking out Vintage Synth Exporer or the Sound On Sound article (because they are awesome) and a YouTube link below.

The Europa mod adds additional capabilities to voice assignement modes; arpeggiation; MIDI, etc. Check out the synth com website for more complete and detailed information.

This one is really in good shape; looks close to mint with a a few blemishes that can be seen in the photos. There a a couple of dimples in the front panel, upper left corner; the case area below the mod section (lower left) is a little bent as well. Previous owner gifted these "mods." I have not found any operational impact from these, but they are visible. Other than these, the knobs, sliders, buttons, all seen to work.

It's a great example of early-eighties analog design, with it's own unique sound capabilities and a decently extended control implementation via the Europa mod. It can do your usual analog strings, brass, comps, pads, beeps & sweeps & warbles; it excels at really nice, musical analog bell-like tones; and if you stack all 6 oscillators in solo+unison mode it might remove paint from the walls. Love it.

I will pack the daylights out of this - lots of bubble wrap and customer boxing.

IMPORTANT: Shipping quote is for UPS ground, continental US only. If you need it shipped elsewhere, or prefer another mode or expedited shipping, please let me know; I will quote the exact amount and add to the synth cost (without any mysterious "handling" adders).
