What we say:

At A Glance:

The Juno-DS series from Roland offers some of our most popular stage keyboards, with the Juno-DS88 being the largest option in the range. This option is perfect if you need a quality stage piano with fully weighted keys. Featuring hundreds of different sounds and great performance tools, it is an absolute knockout. Not to mention it is extremely affordable, considering just how much it has to offer.

Features We Love:

Juno Legacy

Since the 1980s, Roland’s Juno series has been aimed at offering a quality instrument at an affordable price. Their legendary synths such as the Juno-106 and Juno-60 are considered to be affordable, yet fantastic instruments. So much so that they are still sought after to this day. In today’s world, the Juno line offers high quality stage keyboards with a ton of sounds and performance tools. Features you wouldn’t normally get at this price.

Hundreds of Sounds

The Juno-DS88 features hundreds upon hundreds of on board sounds. You’ll find everything from pianos and organs to EDM synth leads and SFX. The sounds can all be customised and up to 16 voices can be split and layered across the keyboard. In addition to this, there is a great FX engine on board that features delays, reverbs, modulation and more.

Sample Playback

In addition to the fantastic sound engine, Juno-DS allows you to use your own audio samples. When using the menu system you are able to spread a single sample across the keyboard, however, if you use the free Juno-DS Tone Manager software, you can easily create your own multi-sampled instruments.

Phrase Pads

The phrase pads on the Juno-DS88 are a great modern feature. They allow you to trigger built in rhythm patterns, or your own samples from USB memory. This is a great feature that will let you create phrases across 8 instruments, play one-shots, loops or full tracks.

  • Lightweight and portable
  • Fully-weighted 88-note keyboard
  • Solid construction
  • High quality sound engine
  • Features a microphone input for use with the vocoder

Daniel M. - 18/3/2019

Service very good. Although an ex demonstrator model was slightly disappointed to find one of the buttons out of line, but everything works. Other than that a very good purchase and I did get 12 months guarantee.
