ROLAND BOUTIQUE JX-03 – for Those Who Like to Stand Out

One of the first three from the Boutique line. I like it. It has its own character. I have never really spent much time with it but I can sense some hidden potential in there. Maybe one day I'll explore its sonic possibilities more. Oh, and it definitely has the best paint job in all the early Boutique line.

PROS:

– simple layout

– tons of character 

– nice design

CONS:

– monophonic sequencer

HICUT SCORE: 4.5/6

SHOULD YOU BUY IT: A better buy than the JP-08. If you want the best Boutique out there go for the SH-01A, if you want to be original - choose this one. I've never tried the JU-06 though…
