Win a Roland JD-XA synthesizer signed by Duran Duran’s Nick Rhodes in aid of the UK's Music for All charity

Win a Roland JD-XA synthesizer signed by Duran Duran's Nick Rhodes, and help the UK's Music for All charity continue to help disadvantaged music makers. Tickets cost just £5 each in aid of the charity, and the competition ends on 31st July 2022. 
Few synth players have had a greater impact on music than Nick Rhodes. As co-founder of the iconic British group Duran Duran, his classic lines have powered mega-hits for the last four decades – from Rio, Girls On Film, Hungry Like The Wolf and Ordinary World, to their latest album release ‘FUTURE PAST’ which has already spawned the hits ‘ANNIVERSARY’ and ‘INVISIBLE’. 

With a list price of £1549, the Roland JD-XA is a unique crossover synth that brings together analogue warmth and digital versatility in one super-creative, no-compromise instrument.

Music for All is extremely grateful to Roland and Nick Rhodes for the donation of this prize!

The competition is open to UK entries only.
