Hosa makes brand new ones so no need to pay too much for these...

As an added bonus, if you buy it from Sweetwater, they'll call you every week "just to see if you need anything else" until you die or ask them to stop... :)

:eek: I've never ordered anything from Sweetwater, thanks for teaching us :tu: That sounds more like desperation than being helpful to their customers.

agreed. The Sweetwater calls are pretty annoying. They always get my answering machine at least.

Hello!
(my first post!!)

The juno 106 cords are easy to find for cheap since they're used for practically everything. If you have an old pc lying around, check the plug, there's a good chance it might be the same as your juno. sometimes music shops will sell them in the area with all the audio wires and you have good odds with radioshack. The power shouldn't matter since the voltage is transformed inside the synth so as long as you find a 3-prong plug you should be good.

consider it the easiest common problem you'll get with a juno.

Welcome Biff! :party:

Just so we are clear though, we are talking about the special Roland gear power cords that are only 2-prong and rectangle shaped on the female end. I don't think I've ever seen a computer power cable that wasn't 3-prong.

But, I've been wrong many a time! :oops:

Greets! :hihi:

d'oh! i though the juno 106 was a 3 prong one. I do have a European model, so I wonder if mine is freaky that way. I probably just got my synths and plugs mixed up... I'll have to check when I get to my music space. I just know in the past I had to buy a 3 prong plug for some sort of synth.

either way, thanks for the welcome, I'm glad I found this forum! :nana:

I have a swedish bought juno-106 and it also has the 2 pin power connector....

Other gear that I have that uses the same connector is:
Roland tr-909
AKAI AX-73
Juno-1

I think that I am one cable short at the moment.... :(
