  • For Sale: Alto / Tenor Horn. Known as an alto horn in North America and a tenor horn in the United Kingdom. The instrument is not a commonly used instrument and would have to be special ordered if bought from a music store, if they have a supplier for them. This one is made by Kin Star and was purchased in the early to mid-1990s. It is still in excellent condition and has been well maintained. Included are three music instruction books for the alto sax, as no alto horn books were available at the time. They have notes from instructors in them to convert them over to the alto horn. Also included are a music sheet holder and valve oil. Asking $1500 or best offer. For pictures, see this album. I can be reached at:

  • I am selling my Roland - JP-08 sound module. Picture Here -- This beauty has the sound and control of the classic early 80's Jupiter-8 analog synthesizer. Just hook this bad boy up to your keyboard via Midi, and off you go! No keyboard? All good. You can use the ribbon controller to fiddle around with the sounds, and figure out what you like. I only used it on a handful of gigs, and I have it in its original box. I'm selling it because I know another keyboard/synth player would find it useful, and I want to invest the money into my teaching studio business. I bought this thing for $500, but I'm asking for $350. -- 613-302-4689

  • Roland VG-8, GR-1 Expanded, GR-50, GK-3 and more I have some Roland guitar synth(GR)/virtual guitar(VG) gear I'm looking to move. Photos to be added. VG-8 This unit is in excellent shape. It does have a bit of the line in the display problem but it's not severe. It has the S1 expansion as well as sound expansion card. GR-1 Expanded This is the first 13-pin guitar synth Roland put out. I have the expansion board with the card which increases the sounds from 200 to 400. This unit has more deep editing features than any other GR unit. GR-50 This is a rack mount guitar synth based on the L/A Synthesis of the D-50/D-20/D-10 family. It's in very good condition. GK-3 This is the current synth guitar pickup. I have the mounting bracket that allows you to mount it on tune-o-matic style bridges such as Gibson uses. UX-20 (prototype) This is a third party device similar to Roland's US-20 but with more features. It allows you to control two 13-pin devices at once. I have a pair of 13-pin jumpers to go with it. Depending on the deal I may also include a Roland EV-5 expression pedal. The unit I have is a prototype and is not in a case as you see them in the link below.
