sh101mgs1 ” Roland SH-101 vintage analog synthesizer in very good cosmetic with a couple of minor dings here and there. Everything is in working condition with the one issue described below. Please check the link below to a video detailing the condition of the unit. I have owned this SH-101 for over 20 years, I was the second owner. It has been in my climate controlled, non smoking studio since I bought it. It is another of the things that I really hate to part with, but I’m getting close to retirement, and am selling off a lot of my studio equipment.
It comes with the pistol grip, the original manual, and the original strap. The battery cover is still in place, often they have been lost. The unit operates on battery power or external power supply. I will include a One Spot power adapter. The unit is fully functioning, with the exception of the frequency slider on the filter section. The unit is still fully usable as the filter can be driven via voltage control from the keyboard, mod input, or envelope input. It is a relatively easy fix with a readily available $12.00 slider pot.” Link

sh101 “Selling my Roland SH-101. Last buyer returned it claiming it had problems that it didn’t. It will run off batteries or a wall outlet. No power supply included. All sliders and pots work as they should. Has a slightly scratchy output on the main audio 3/4″ output port. And it is missing one tab on the battery shield. Also, one corner of the shield has a bend in it. I have included pictures of these issues. It is not perfectly clean or unused. There is some scratches and scuffs here in there. I don’t have the guitar strap for it, but it does have the bend wheel grip. Please ask me if you have any questions. I have described it to the best of my ability. This is a great synth, I have enjoyed owning and using it for the past 18 years. I’m going to miss it. Thanks for looking and good luck bidding!” Link

Great for making acid, IDM, EDM…etc. Love this analog synth but selling it because I got into a motorcycle accident last month and I need to cover my hospital expenses. ” Link

All knobs, buttons and sliders work like they should. Comes with bender “guitar” grip and strap. Still can run on batteries. A few scratches here and there and the battery compartment door is missing one tab. I have very much enjoyed syncing this synth to my 303. Plus it has a great on-board sequencer of its own. This should be a real auction, no reserve.” Link

Roland SH-101 Blue.. Classic synth in excellent condition.. Comes with rare mod grip.. Mod grip has a slight crack in it as pics show.. One screw is missing from mod grip.. Apart from this , the synth is in very good condition.. See pics.. As you can see it’s powered up and works fine.

PSU NOT INCLUDED.. Cheap to purchase.. 9v to 12v required.

Synth is owned by the electronic artist Boddika.. Comes directly from his studio.. I’m simply a friend who sells surplus studio equipment for him.. See my feedback as sold a few surplus items in the last few months.

If you collect the synth it will be from a private address and not the artists studio.

usedsh101 “ROLAND SH101 synth for sale. I’ve owned it since 1988 and gotten much great use out of it.

Works great* includes modulation handle.

*There is a problem with the plug where the power cable attaches to the synth body. It does work but the jack must be a bit loose. Need to position cable just so within the jack for it to connect. Should be easy fix. I’ve been told power jack replacement is less than a $25 job.

Priced accordingly and NO REFUNDS.

When powered on it works perfectly.” Link

sh101mgs1” Roland SH-101- including MSG-1 Mod Grip. I would declare it as near mint condition. I added batteries and tested. All functions seem good. I bought it from new in mid 1980s. Comes from a smoke free environment. Little used having done a handful of gigs back in the 1980s (requires 9v DC power adapter).

On 08-Aug-15 at 10:38:35 BST, seller added the following information:

The Mod Grip has never been used and is boxed and still in its plastic bag along with the strap.” Link

01 “Here we have, direct from Germany, a true piece of rock and roll history. It is KMFDM’s personal iconic Roland SH-101 monophonic synthesizer owned and played and featured on every KMFDM album since 1984! This synth is in immaculate condition and all functions 100% perfectly. Sounds awesome and barely has a scratch on it. It comes with SIGNED COA from Sascha of KMFDM, as well as original VCO mod grip, manual, and power supply. This is a truly epic piece of music history. I bought it directly from Sascha with the intention of keeping it for another 30 years, but I have a project that I need to fund, sadly. My loss is your gain. Here is your chance to own this museum-quality instrument that can be heard on every single KMFDM record dating back 31 years! ” Link

sh 101“If you’re looking at this, you already understand what an SH-101 is all about.

I am the original and only owner and the SH-101 has lived exclusively in a smoke free studio environment.

The unit has never been used with batteries (see photo) and comes with original Roland power supply.

This SH-101 is in pristine condition, tested prior to listing.

The only blemishes are an area of mild discoloration under the tuning knob where a piece of tape was present to warn off pesky fingers. Additionally, there’s an area just to the left of the battery compartment where tape residue is also visible. Residue was left in place rather than risk damaging the plastic

The SH-101 ships with the original manuals and also includes a NEVER used Modulation grip set. The Mod attachment has never been attached to the synth and the strap is still in the sealed bag.” Link

sh101 “Vintage Roland SH-101 wearable analog synth, Grey / Gray. Includes MGS-1 Modulation Grip, nylon guitar-type strap, and 3 spare parts from Roland: 3 sliders and a pot. The SH-101 worked perfectly for most of the time that I owned it, but it got damaged when movers knocked over my synth stand during my last move. The main issue is that there is no sound output from the VCO section. Actually, to be perfectly accurate, there is a very high-pitched tone from the sub-oscillator when you play up on the high registers of the keyboard, which doesn’t change pitch from key to key, so it would seem the VCO chip is okay but there’s a problem with the VCO-controlling circuitry. It’s probably just a capacitor that snapped a leg or something. Recapping the synth may be all that’s needed to restore sound production to full working order, or just recapping the VCO control section, or even replacing a single capacitor. A very minor issue is that the sound is muted for a couple of seconds after power-on (it was probably that way before the fall, actually). Pushing the bender forward to activate LFO MOD doesn’t work (pressing the button on the mod grip to accomplish the same thing does work, though). One screw for the lower strap mount is missing (although it holds securely with just one), and the screws for the mod grip are not the original ones. There is also one missing screw on the bottom plate of the synth. Other than that, everything on the synth has been tested and is working, although I am unable to test some of the VCO-specific features currently, and I did not test the EXT CLK IN. The synth is actually playable if you use the resonant filter and optionally the noise source as your sound source. I am the second owner of this synth, which, while I’ve owned it, has been kept out of direct sunlight in a clean, non-smoking, 1-person, no-pets household. ” Link

sh101“Great condition Roland SH101. Only one previous owner before me, kept in a smoke free studio. More photos coming later.

Includes original:
mod grip
leather Roland strap

I got it signed by A Guy Called Gerald as he was playing in Plymouth on May 10th 2012 and the promoter couldn’t get hold of another 101 to hire for his live set so he borrowed mine instead and I got it signed. It says “Thanks Matt, A Guy Called Gerald” and some stickers on the left hand side of the synth. It’s been sat in my studio for quite a while unused so I’d rather it went to get some use elsewhere plus I’d quite like to get some different studio gear. ” Link

sh101“Hello everybody. I recently purchased a Pro-One, so keeping this is a bit redundant. I have had tons of fun with this little guy. I bought him to learn synthesis, since I am primarily a guitar player. All of the knobs and switches on this unit have proved to be great fun. Trigger the Sample and Hold with a drum machine, and you will be right pleased. This unit sounds great. There are absolutely no scratchy pots of faders. Everything works.

Things worthy of mention include the following:

1- Though there are no missing screws for the back-plate, sometime in the past somebody must have tightened two of the screws too much and cracked the fragile plastic pole pieces. The screws are still there, they just spin and spin. On a positive note, they are really of no importance and the back-plate stays solidly in place.

2- The battery cover is cracked, but manages to stay in place. Do not ask me how, it just does. I do not understand it.

3- The silver “Hold” button was replaced last month. It was working intermittently. Now it works perfect every time.

4- I had a 10 turn trim pot installed in the VR-7 position to make for easier and more accurate adjustments of the tuning and scaling. It is the blue squarish looking device by “VCO Tune”.

5- Being an older analog synth, the tuning/scaling does tend to drift depending on how long you have had the unit on, your power supply etc. Since I used this mainly for bleeps and bloops, it really never bothered me. If you are playing some Chopin Concerto with an orchestra and need ultra precise intonation, then you may have a problem on your hands.

6- Power switch was replaced for greater tuning stability. The original power switches have an issue that if you tap around them, the tuning dances around. This unit does not exhibit this problem.

7-The modulation grip needs two thumb screws in order to connect. Nothing fancy. Should be easy to find.” Link
