Hi I have had my JP-8 re-silkscreened by custom synth. The quality is excellent but you will see subtle differences if you compare it against an original. The colours and fonts are very close but not an exact match. Other than that it is flawless. Note. You also need to send the bender panel. I thi...

Hmm I would be wary - I've seen the "modular" mod they made to a friends SH-3a and frankly it looks bloody lethal and far from professional. I wouldn't let em near any of my gear.

Thanks for the info Kevin.....actually my Jupe contacts are amazingly all fine I have no double triggering or bad contacts at all and never have(maybe testament to the quality of components used by Roland) - on the other hand my OBX-a is plauged with bad contacts even though I clean it up regularly....

Clackety keys

Hi doods, I'm new to this forum but I recognise a few "faces" .....! My Jupe 8 has developed a few "clackety" keys - I've never had her opened but I have rebushed my PPG keyboard. Anybody here opened up their JP8 and had a rummage with the keybed ? Any advice or is it simple enou...
