My Roland RS-09 on eBay

I’m moving and in addition to not wanting to move a bunch of keyboards, I could use a little cash so I put my Japanese market RS-09 version 3 ‘Organ and Strings’ synthesizer on eBay.  Basic ‘It works and sounds great’ estate sale find descriptions after plugging in headphones and touching a few keys do not apply here.

This unit has been serviced by a tech to fix a faint continuous C# (couple of capacitors) and stubbornly noisy volume pot (new pot).  Since servicing it has been used on several recording sketches and performed flawlessly.

Clean, attractive and ready to make music.  Buttons and slider caps are the same as Jupiter 8.

The Roland RS – 09 uses the famous BA662A VCA chip found in many of the famous analogs of theirs.

I’ll try and get a demo of this machine together before the auction ends -maybe with my TR-66 as accompaniment.
