“Unit is in perfect working order (tested with both adapter and batteries!), and quite nice cosmetic condition (absolutely no damage to speak of!). Even the battery port is clean, which is rare with these units. Includes the rare mod grip as well as the very rare original box from the 80′s ;) Please see photos for details. Thanks!” 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

“Classic SH 101, not long serviced- sounds and plays perfectly-

missing battery cover- there was a leak before i bought it this never effected the PCBs or any chips etc- i had a technician check it out after i bought it- one of the power rails needed re calibrated but that was it.
it was serviced about 6 months ago.” 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

“Unit is in excellent condition. Please see photos for cosmetic details. Comprehensive testing demonstrated that batteries work perfectly, power works perfectly and all functions work perfectly, but two keys (25, 26) are unresponsive. This might just need some contact cleaner.” 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

“Very very well looked after and stored and used out of direct sunlight so it still retains the original grey colour with no fading. Serviced by Panic Music, Cambs and in full working order. No noisy sliders and 100% functional with a clean and working battery compartment. Comes complete with a Boss PSU, the ORIGINAL Roland owners manual and an ORIGINAL Roland 101 Mod Grip plus the other Strap Fixing lug all the screws so you can strap it on (hur hur) and jump around like it’s the 80′s. Which, judging by some of the more recent house tracks I’ve heard, it sounds like it is anyway. I’ll even include a contrasting electric blue guitar strap I brought to go with it.

Be aware that the Mod Grip and Strap fixings are 2 separate items that screw in. Some 101′s may be advertised with the Mod Grip but fail to mention you need the other strap lug part as well. They are quite small and easily lost. This 101 comes with both!

Ideally collection and cash on collection but if travel is problematic I will accept Paypal. As it’s a classic piece of analogue synth hardware I would prefer collection, or for petrol money I will drive a distance. However if you want to arrange your own courier service I will wrap it exceptionally well.

I bloody love this thing and I’m going to miss it. Out of all the synths I’ve owned (see above) this is easily my favourite. Take care of her.” Link

” I’m letting go of my beloved SH-101 analog monosynth. This is a great little board, ground shaking bass, and nifty acid screeching. This is a well cared for and loved 101; all knobs, sliders, buttons are in great condition, everything works the way it is supposed to. Includes original power supply, keytar handle, and owner’s manual, as well as some photocopied schematics and service info.

You know who all uses this thing; you know the great sounds it makes. Here’s a chance to get a very nice condition SH-101.” Link

“Up for sale is the classic ROLAND SH-101 RED Vintage Analog Monophonic Synthesizer.

The unit appears to be fully functional, all the keys and knobs and buttons working well, including Sequencer and Arpeggio functions.

The battery compartment is clean, worked fine with batteries as well as with my spare AC adapter.

AC Adapter is not included.” Link

Roland, SH-101 @ 06 April 2014, Comments Off

” This 101 is in very good working condition, with one minor problem: THE KEYBOARD IS SLIGHTLY OUT OF TUNE.

The tuner knob works fine, so you can get any pitch you want, but as you play up the keys it starts to sound a little flat. This happens with analog synths – it just needs to opened up and recalibrated by someone with a service manual. Other than that it works wonderfully and of course sounds great!

Physically it’s in very good condition too – only typical wear from use. You can see there are some black stains and dried adhesive on the sides, probably from where a mod grip was attached. But there is NO mod grip with this and NO manual. It’s just the synth. I’ll ship the power adapter I use with it, but it’s not the original adapter.” Link

The SH-101 was used in a number of vmax records sonic productions. As an added bonus the SH will be paired up with a DOEPFER MDC-4 MIDI TO CV / GATE INTERFACE. The SH was ported for a Moog bass peddle. The battery compartments plastic housing is clean and the bottom tray below the battery compartment shows an old stain from leaking batteries, this tray has been cleaned. The right battery terminals have bit of corrosion on the spring. I cleaned off the ends of contacts to make sure the synth would still work with batteries and it does work with batteries. (Emery cloth would clean the corrosion off the terminals.)

Small indentation on under body of synth

Line out is a little loose, but still works (I used the head phone jack instead)

Battery terminals have a little corrosion on right side (SH works with batteries)

“his auction is for my Roland SH101 in Grey.

The synth was working fine when I last used it properly which was about 4 years ago.

I got it out a couple of weeks ago when I decided to sell it and it worked then.
However, I bought a replacement power adapter for it (here on EBay), plugged it in and the synth would not work.

So I have relisted it here as not working.

The unit is in excellent condition, all keys are fine, no missing knobs or broken benders.

There is a small crack on the battery cover, where a lug came of but I never bothered to replace it because it didn’t affect anything. You can buy a replacement cover here on eBay quite easily if you want to though.

To summarise:

Faulty SH101 for repair.” Link

“There’s a fair few little scratches and blemishes. The Tune dial has been repaired, it is also missing it’s nob. The DC input was also broken but has now been repaired. The arm with the modulation control is undamaged but it feels a bit delicate- I’d say the days of jumping about on stage are over for this one. But its studio career could be about to begin! Supplied with mains adapter. No manual.All repairs have been carried out by a fully qualified engineer with over 25 years experience in fixing Roland products. He’s the best.” Link

” Hey, welcome to my listing for my Roland Sh-101, with Modulation Grip and a printed Manual.

Its time for this to go from my setup simply because it doesn’t get the use it deserves. Its a great piece of kit and its a shame for it to be covered up. Time for you to have some fun with it!

This also comes with the accessory – the Modulation Grip!
..the power supply was also an accessory which i dont have, i’ve always just used it with batteries (sadly i can’t post it with batteries, a new rule by the post office.)” Link

Roland, SH-101 @ 23 March 2014, Comments Off

The synth is in excellent condition for its age, no broken knobs or keys and everything works as it should, but please remember this was made in 1982!

The only bit of damage is that one lug has broken of from the battery compartment cover. I have shown this in a picture. Replacement covers can be bought here on eBay quite cheaply but I have never bothered because it is not loose and it doesn’t affect the working.

I will also include a manual for the synth.” Link

” Just been serviced by Andy at EMIS to the cost of £90. All works perfectly and sounds amazing. It’s an iconic synth and a great investment. Batteries supplied, no leakage, compartment still works a treat. Will entertain offers from local buyers, you can view before collection if you like. Feel free to ask me any questions, otherwise enjoy!

Edit: Have just noticed the PWM slider doesn’t seem to respond until it’s at the top of its range, will probably need a quick clean though I’ll leave that to the buyer as I never use PWM anyway. ” Link

“For sale is my Roland Sh101 mono synth in the rare RED color. This is an amazing keyboard, it is in MINT shape and fully functional. Looks fantastic. I recently brought it over to my tech and got a full clean up and calibration. It has the power bypass mod, so basically the power button always stays on but this ensures the synth stays in tune across all octaves. Most old Sh101s have failing power buttons that cause tuning issues and make them unplayable. The mod is easily reserved if needed. This synth is working perfectly. It includes the rare mod grip, and also has a nice stylish case.” Link

“Roland SH-101 grey modelManufactured by RolandDates 1982-1986As you can see from the images, this SH101 is literally perfect. Everything works, the shell is unmarked, the ultra rare original Roland shoulder strap is equally perfect. The modulator is present, undamaged and equally good. I have stored this for god knows how long and have owned it from new (yes, I am that old). It’s time for it to move on as it is just not getting the use it deserves. For those looking for the original sound of the eighties and beyond, this is the real deal. Just look at the pictures…….Shipping is likely to be relatively expensive due to the size and weight (it will be VERY well wrapped and protected) and it will be tracked. ” Link

“For sale is a Grey Roland SH101 synthesizer. It’s in excellent condition and working perfectly, except the noise slider in the oscillator section is not pass audio. The noise in the LFO mod sections still works though, so to me this indicates a bad slider and not an issue with the noise section itself. Included is the rare MG-1 Mod Grip along with leather strap for playing as a keytar! A great keyboard for leads, bass and effects, with a useful built in sequencer and arpeggiator. See pictures below for more details. Make it Yours! A techno acid analog dream!” Link
