“Roland SH 101

(2 owners from new – The original power adaptor is missing but a replacement PSU, which works perfectly fine with this synthesiser, has been included)

I bought this classic synth from a relative, who decided to buy one back in the 80’s to recreate the Synth-pop, Electronic & New Wave sounds of the time. I’ve only ever used this for one live gig and its main use was for home recording. This was then consigned to the attic for many years but has now been dusted off and is ready for sale, as I no longer have a use for it. Anyone who knows this synth knows what is can do. So hopefully it will find a home where it can be put to good use.

I have tested this using both the adaptor and batteries and this sounds as good as it did back then. The battery compartment cover has been lost and there’s some slight discoloration around the main body work, however, as indicated in the attached pictures the unit still look great.

All switches, faders and knobs have been tested to ensure that they are crackle-free and I can also confirm that the Pitch-Bender bends works as it should and the sequencer works as intended. All in all, this looks great, sounds great and will make someone very happy!” Link

“This unit working A++ excellent condition. There is a very few cosmetic wear, discoloration, nothing that affects playability. This SH-101 is nothing broken all perfect conditions. We have already checked all keys, knobs, arpeggiator, cv/gate, and also tested working with batterys.” Link

“Hi, I would like to sell my Customized SH 101.

It has been serviced few month ago, calibrated, therefore perfect condition with out any problem!

It is modificated, like as famous NOVA Mods, with FM function and high speed LFO modulation, overdrive, external input, LFO trigger, VCF CV in etc…it makes very unique sound unlike normal SH 101.

It comes with Original bag, MOD grip, original leather strap, Original manual, power adapter by BOSS.

Some screws on back side are lost, however basically no problem even if playing with strap. It is fixed with remaining screws.

Other than that, there’s no problem and playing condition is perfect!
Pitch is very stable in center, as it was calibrated. Also did power filtering, sounds very clean as new.” Link

“Rare Roland Red SH-101 with modulation grip. This synth is in good working condition with a few noisy controls. Please examine photos to assess physical condition. I would rate it good overall especially for a 30 year old synth. This also comes with an Ac adapter and the strap that goes with the modulation grip.” Link

“Great SH-101 — PLUS $1000 in extras

- perfect SH101 synth with original parts
- plus one fully functional EXTRA synth & control board for back-up or modifications (essentially two working SH-101s for one shell)
- more extra pots than you will ever need. over 15 extra slider pots and over 12 dial pots all brand new stock.
- clean parts, all original end caps for pots, extra OEM end caps included
- over-sized road case for synth and all extra parts. extra pads in case for ultimate protection
- hand grip included (not pictured, but we got it too)

well cared for over the years. never gigged. smoke free studio. stored in a case for most of its life. only very very minor signs of wear. better condition than others you will find on ebay.

I ordered all kinds of extra parts years ago but I never used them. I wanted to keep one original system along with a separate set of internal parts for modifications and experiments. Nothing ever happened. Now I have a ton of new and mint condition Roland SH-101 parts.

You’ll have enough parts to keep this SH-101 functional for generations or mod as you like with no fear of losing the original configuration.” Link

“The synth was working perfectly when I last used it about six months ago. However, when I got it out after deciding to sell it it now powers up and lights up but I am not getting any sound. Therefore I have listed it as for parts/not working.

The synth is in excellent cosmetic condition, no broken knobs, sliders or scratched keys. Everything works as it should (apart from output sound !).” Link

“Great condition blue SH-101. Has problem with pitch bender, probably needs a new potentiometer (a $17 dollar part from Syntaur) installed. Mod works on bender just not pitch. Sounds awesome, no other functional issues. Comes with brand new Roland/Boss power supply and original manual. Not cosmetically perfect but in very good condition, Please see pics for cosmetic details.” Link

“I’ve owned this synth for around 10 years, and it was great fun hooked up to a drum machine when I was into acid music, but it’s time to move on. Overall it’s in pretty good condition, the front panel is very good, all knobs and sliders are present. There is one fault that was present when I bought this 101, the VCF KYBD slider doesn’t do anything. Apparently it should add control voltage to the filter so that the filter cut-off rises as the keyboard note rises. I was unaware of this for some years, that’s how unnecessary I found this control, otherwise all functions and sequencer are in perfect working order and perfectly in tune. All of the keys are smooth and functioning correctly. There are no dents or scratches on the grey casing, the black metal base does have some normal surface marks. The battery compartment has no corrosion at all but the compartment cover has two damaged tabs as seen in the photos, it stays in position though. I don’t have the manual for this or a spare 9 volt power supply, I have played with the synth thoroughly before putting it up for sale and guarantee that its functionality is as described. ” Link

“Awesome synth, with amazing sounds. Replaced the power switch, which is a known issue with these bad boys. Works like a dream. Wish I didn’t have to sell it, I just don’t use it and would like to see someone get use out of it. It deserves to be played. It cries out for musical justice. Don’t let it cry in vain. You hold the key to synthy musical glory! For reals though, I can’t say enough about how great this thing sounds. Power supply included, although can be used with batteries.” Link Link

” Here is a rare blue Roland SH-101 in Very good mechanical, cosmetic, and functioning condition. Works great and is ready to ship. Comes with the blue mod grip and both straps mounts. One of the strap mounting screws is missing. Battery cover is in great shape and both tabs are there, though it is very slightly off in color, may have been replaced at some point or maybe just aged differently. The battery compartment is clean with no corrosion from batteries. It does not come with a power supply but they are available cheap here on ebay. All sliders, buttons, switches, and benders work great and are smooth. Input and output jacks are tight. The case is in very good condition with only very minor scratches. All Graphics are bright and clear. This unit was taken care of! ” Link

“Owned from new and never gigged. Slight battery leak (see photo) other than this and a rattle when moved about, everything is in good order. Keys, knobs, sliders and switches are all intact, nothing missing. No mains adaptor but works fine with batteries which are required to retain sequencer memory. Not mains tested. ” Link

“For Sale my Roland SH 101 that I have owned for many years. You can see from the pictures that the synth is is pretty good condition for it’s many years of age, there are a few scratches and scuffs but I think it is to be expected. The pitch bender works fine however the modulation function on this doesn’t. It also needs a tune up so I guess a service is needed. One fader is also slightly bent so I have included a photo of that. Arpegiator and step pattern function work fine. Everything else works fine, all keys etc.” eBay Link

“Unit works perfectly with the exception of the tune knob, which rotates only 75 percent, so you might want to re-align it. Also, the little joystick part of the pitch bender broke off, but the shifter still works just fine. Everything else about the unit is great. Battery port also tested and confirmed as working.” Link

“Roland SH-101 analogue vintage synthesize with midi – CV converter

I’ve had this in my studio since 1980′s. Haven’t used it much in the last 15 years but I have to say it does make a great noise. Quite refreshing after years of nothing but digital. Saddly time for it to find a new home.

All knobs sliders keys present and working. Vesta Koza midi – CV convertor included so you can trigger it from from midi. PSU + Minijack to 1/4jack cables to connect to midi – CV convertor included.

Haven’t ever used it on batteries so no warranty on this, but battery looks clean (no corrosion). Works fine on PSU.

Please note that the cover from the battery box is missing. I’ve made a few requests for a replacement cover. Seems to cost about $20 in US. If I can get it by end of auction it’s included, otherwise sold as seen.” Link

” I bought this used years ago and under my care, it’s never been gigged, has remained in a smoke free environment and has had a dust cover when not used. It’s only ever been used for a little recording and hasn’t traveled. It’s in GREAT condition and everything works! (we just tested it again before listing it). The only remote critique (which is phenomenal given the 30+ years of age) is that the volume pot is a little dirty. I play guitar mostly these days and am selling it to fund more gear in that respect, so that’s my only reason, given the high appeal of hanging onto it for nostalgic sake.
Perhaps the most interesting aspect of this particular synth is that the serial number is 00032!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
It does not have a mod grip included, but the rear guitar strap jack is attached. It also does not include a power supply.
Here’s your chance to own a super low serial number Original Roland SH 101 in remarkable shape.” Link

“This item comes with its power supply. The only small issue that it has, is on the back side there’s 2-3 acrews missing from a recent service, and I didn’t have enough time to replace them. But the synth still is tight in its place, and the missing screws don’t affect its stability. Other than that the synth is in PERFECT cosmetic and working order!” Link

“You’re bidding on a vintage Roland SH101 Synthesiser – it’s in really excellent condition, clean, no scrapes or scratches to speak of, the synth comes with an original Roland carry bag (as pictured) slightly faded but no rips/tears and with the manufacturers original manual and original (2 Pin) Boss 9v power supply. As much as I can I’ve tested the synth and all the sliders, knobs and the pitch bend/modulation wheel are all fully functional. It really is in fantastic condition given it was manufactured in roughly 1982! From what I gather it’s a really desirable instrument and used extensively in Techno, Drum & Bass and Acid music! – hence the realistic reserve! ” Link
