“You are bidding on analog vintage synth from 70′ Roland SH-7. Item came from wife of PRO musician, who I knew for years…. Unit has been sitting for nothing for last 5-6 years and she decided to let it go. I play piano, but I am not analog guy, meanwhile I did my best to test the synth. keyboard had tons of knobs and sliders, NOTHING MISSING, all there, looks very nice for 40 year synth, couple small marks here and there, 8th black key from a right has little chip on side, but overall looks very nice-see pictures. I turned th synth on and I twisted every single knob and slider, they all response and change sound. Spending about 15 mins I realize how to do some sound, tuned 3rd voice to 2 others and sound became so fat, agressive and bright. BUT: slider 32′ on 1st VCO doens’t work, I moved it back and forward and caught sound couple times, so now I know it’s just a bad slider, after all I opened the synth-very clean inside- and found little note-sticker to circuit board: VCO1, 32′ bad, 100K, replace. I guess it’s never been replaced. We wanted to fix that issue, coz slider cost only $1.49 in Radio Shack, but repair shop charges $100 per hour with minimum 2 hours and You have to wait whole month!!! So I think whoever will buy it’s gonna be his little project, also I think little turning after shipping probably will be good as well. Anyway, all the rest works, all lights work, all keys work, all switches work. Sounds very very fat. as far as I see it’s pretty rare vintage synth. Due a vintage nature and age the synth goes as IS, but as I said everything is alive on this machine except slider 32′ on 1st VCO. see pictures, Only serious bidder, pick up is welcome. Synth will be well packed and insured on full amount. I will ship worldwide as far as You pay for shipping, pick up is welcome, any question you can email or call 707-644-2879.
ATTENTION: it was a question abot modulation wheel-The ANSWER: :Modulation wheel is not broken, it does work absolutely fine. I didn’t pay attention how it looked,coz it looks the same like on my Yamaha keyboard, after your email I went to vintagesynth.com and I see modulation wheel on SH-7 has little stick on a top of wheel. I don’t know history of synth, may be owner did it coz it’s more convenient just to put the finger and operate the wheel or little stick on a top was damaged, but modulation wheel work fine. I don’t see any broken parts, knobs on keyboard, they look fine to me, anyway, check all pictures very carefully, if you notice little difference in modulation You will notice other thing, but I don’t see anything broken and very sure about it. Electronically everything alive except 32′ slider, if synth needs some turning, adjustment-may be, I don’t know, but i’m sure it’s better for 40 y.o. synth. I checked ebay, last SH-7 was sold for $2100, othet I saw for $2500. WE put $1850, in a case if you will need spend a little bit money for tuning or something, but I did played on this synth and sound very nice, very vintage.” Auction ended.
