"Great Keyboard"

Overall: 4.5 out of 5 stars

Verified Customer zZounds has verified that this reviewer made a purchase from us.
Like any keyboard the Juno DS88 has its limitations but, overall, this is a great instrument. Most of the sounds are excellent, though there are some that I will probably never use. The manual, included with the instrument and those which were downloaded from Roland, are well written and easy to understand. The 88 key keybed has an excellent feel as it feels like a well built piano. Did not need manufacturer support at this point. For the price, this product is hard to beat. I am very pleased with this purchase from zZounds and I would recommend this keyboard to anyone looking for an 88 key instrument that is designed for the working keyboardist. Roland scores big with this one!!
