I typically play on piano actions, but I am not fond of dragging my 25kg stage piano around for casual rehearsals so had to seek out a light weight keyboard solution. I was unimpressed with the feel of the keys on cheaper units but immediately took a liking to the synth keys on the Juno DS. Taken together with my personal experience and satisfaction with Roland sounds and build quality it didn't take long to convince myself I should pony up the extra for the Juno. Imagine my pleasure at discovering the seriously beefy electronics in this unit, including a great little pattern sequencer and super easy-to-use splits, layers, octave shifts and other features that are accessible enough to be leveraged live in many cases as needed. A huge array of quality Roland sounds and touch sensitive keys, which are easily configured to behave as single level synth keys if desired, have made me grateful to find this amazing instrument.

This keyboard has features typically found only in more expensive models. A surprisingly vast assortment of preloaded quality sounds and the ability to download more from the Roland website (if you need them). The simple, straight forward control operation makes sense and allows you to easily perform edits, customize intricate layered sounds and record elaborate 16 track compositions on the fly. There are more sounds, features and capabilities than most owners will require. Most important to me is the fact that the overall sound is fantastic by comparison to any of my other far more expensive keyboards. Whether you're looking to purchase your first or fourth keyboard, a version of the DS line should be seriously considered.

I went from a Walmart Casio to this so my review might seem at little exaggerated but still this is an amazing keyboard for 1K. The keys have great action they are weighed but don’t have the actual action of a real piano, they feel like normal synthesizer keys. If you want the piano like action you need to buy the DS 88. There are hundreds of great sounding patches preloaded and you can download more. The phrase pads are pretty easy to use, just need to watch YouTube videos to see how to work every aspect of this great keyboard.

Performance Warranty Banner

Protect your investment with the Long & McQuade Performance Warranty

A warranty can be a very important factor when making a buying decision. Because repairs can be very expensive in terms of parts and labour costs, manufacturers usually only provide one year limited warranties that generally only cover items that malfunction due to a manufacturer’s defect. With an important purchase such as a musical
instrument or piece of studio gear, however, many people want to have the peace of mind in knowing that their investment will be protected should the product no longer be performing at 100%.

Because of this, Long & McQuade provides our customers with a FREE one-year Performance Warranty on most of our products. The Long & McQuade Performance Warranty supplements the manufacturer’s warranty to ensure that our customers receive complete “no hassle” warranty coverage within their first year.

How does the Long & McQuade Performance Warranty differ from most manufacturers' warranties?
  • Performance Guarantee: Normal wear and tear is covered, so your product will be performing as well as the day you purchased it for the entire duration of the coverage. Band and Orchestral Performance Warranty does not include replacing pads or cleaning for woodwind instruments, unless deemed necessary by our repair staff. Ultrasonic cleaning for brass instruments will be provided if deemed necessary by our repair staff, but is not routinely offered under the Performance Warranty.
  • Product Replacement: If your product cannot be fixed or costs too much to fix, we will replace it with the equivalent model for no additional charge. If this is not possible, a full refund will be provided.
  • No Lemon Policy: Your product will be replaced should the same problem occur multiple times.
  • Convenient: Easy drop off and pick up of the product at any Long & McQuade location.
  • Guitar Setup: Guitars purchased at Long & McQuade come with 1 free setup, to be redeemed within 1 year for new guitars and 90 days for used guitars.
  • Loaners Available: A loaner product may be given while the product is being repaired.
  • Power Surge Protection: Your product is covered even if damaged from a power surge.
  • Accessory Coverage: Any peripheral devices or accessories that come with your product (i.e. foot pedal, case) are also covered.
  • Commercial Use Coverage: Music and recording professionals who purchase gear for “heavy-use” commercial purposes will still be covered.
 

Long & McQuade reserves the right to restrict the purchase of additional years of Performance Warranty. Used products come with a 3-month Long & McQuade Performance Warranty. Some products (i.e. computers, software, cymbals and other items) are covered only by the manufacturer‘s warranty. Consumables (i.e. strings, reeds, drum sticks, batteries, tubes, cross faders) are excluded as they are designed to be replaced. Cosmetic Damage, Accidental Damage, or problems caused by Humidity or Temperature Issues are not covered. Speakers damaged by overpowering are generally not covered. Our coverage does not provide compensation for loss of use. As of June 2018 the Performance Warranty is no longer transferable. The warranty is only valid in Canada.

Purchasing additional years of coverage

Some manufacturers provide warranties for longer than 1 year; however, these are usually limited warranties that do not provide the same coverage as the Long & McQuade Performance Warranty. Customers interested in more complete and convenient (but not necessarily longer) coverage are still able to purchase additional years of the Performance Warranty.

If you are interested in receiving this coverage for longer than one year, you have the option of purchasing additional years of the Performance Warranty. The pricing is as follows:

  • NEW products: 4% of the current new selling price to double the warranty from 1 year to 2 years. 4% for each additional year.
  • USED products: 4% of the current new selling price to increase the warranty from 3 months to 1 year. 4% for each additional year.
  • GUITARS: 4% of the current new selling price to double the warranty from 1 year to 2 years. 4% for each additional year. $45 maximum. An additional free setup is not included with additional purchased years of Performance Warranty.
  • BAND and ORCHESTRAL instruments: 4% of the current new selling price to double the warranty from 1 year to 2 years. 4% for each additional year.
