About This Listing

I purchased this Jupiter in 2002 from a private collector for my home studio. Its been well taken care of and hasnt left it’s studio location since then. Am offloading this because it doesn’t get nearly enough the attention and use that it deserves and its time to pass it on.

This particular Jupiter is in near excellent cosmetic and functional condition. I recently brought it to Patchwork Electronics in Brooklyn to be reviewed, serviced, and calibrated. It came back with signoff and is in full working condition (happy to provide service documentation).

This piece does not have a MIDI upgrade however it is fitted with J.L. Cooper Electronics Patch 120 which provides three banks of memory expansion. An Anvil flight case is also included.

The only cosmetic flaws are a few scratches to the side which I tried to capture in photos - it’s nothing that detracts from the synth - it’s functionally and cosmetically in excellent condition.

I would prefer to sell it locally in New England.  However we could potentially arrange for personal delivery within the East Coast. Please don’t hesitate to reach out with any questions - I’m also happy to provide functional videos - am looking to find a proper studio/home for this piece and pass on the many hours of music making I’ve done with it to someone else . Thanks for looking!
