“FOR SALE – ROLAND SH101 with original manual.
Home studio use only – excellent condition (see photo) – owned from new.
Has one ‘dead key’ (middle F) but if you’re interested in this iconic machine, it has to be coz you intend to trigger it and that’s all good.
If you’ve found this listing you no doubt know all about these classic little machines – incredibly fun to play with and organic to use.
Sorry – no power supply. ” Link
“Up for sale is the classic ROLAND SH-101 monophonic analog synthesizer. This is a Rare BLUE color version.
The unit appears to be working fine, all the keys and knobs and buttons working well, including Sequencer and Arpeggio functions. I noticed the pitch seems to become slightly unstable on the sideways bend of the bender, which should probably do with some simple servicing/adjustment as there may also be a bit of noise on some of the sliders.
Cosmetically, the unit is in very nice condition as you can see. There are some signs of minor wear and marks here and there, but nothing major and is in great condition if you consider its age. The battery compartment is clean, works fine with batteries as well as with a power supply.
Comes in a nice original Roland Gig Bag as shown.” Link

“Sie bieten hier auf einen sehr gut erhaltenen Roland SH-101.

“For Sale – Roland SH101 with Kenton Filter/Modulation CV modification. (will include the 9v PSU multi-adaptor)
I’ve had this synth for some 20 Years. Its in pretty good shape – all knob and sliders intact – and working perfectly. Was serviced around 4 years ago – been perfect ever since. Has some slight corrosion in the battery compartment (mainly rust from original owner) – have cleaned off battery contacts – just some oxidised colouring on internal plastic – I’ve not tried operating with batteries – but if I get a chance while the auction is running – I’ll test it.
It came with a Kenton retrofit allowing CV control over the filter cut-off and modulation speed (pictured). I used this with a Kenton Pro2 – which allowed midi control over the filter and mod speed via a couple of aux cv’s on the kenton unit.
I no longer have a Pro 2 to check this is still working – but did attempt via a +5v cv signal from my modular synth rig – and did get some movement with the filter and mod speed – but wasn’t quite the same as the Kenton Pro 2 provided.
Other than that all works as expected – checked the internal sequencer + Arp – still going strong. I recently cleaned the pots and sliders – as there were a couple of scratchy sliders – all seems fine now.” Link
” Roland SH-101 Analogue Synth. Not sure if working as have no power lead for it. Selling as spares and repairs for this very reason. Unit is very bruised and battered. Needs cleaning up a little.

“Roland SH-101 in ultra rare BLUE and in excellent condition.
Most SH-101′s were made in the factory standard grey, but then Roland made two other colours available, Red and Blue.
It’s widely understood amongst Roland synthesizer enthusiasts that the Blue SH-101′s are certainly the rarest of the bunch, so much so that they are rarely offered up for sale.
The only other colours available are aftermarket custom synth resprays.
More info on the Roland SH-101 can be found here: http://www.vintagesynth.com/roland/sh101.php
This SH-101 works perfectly and just been serviced to a very high standard to ensure it’s 100% accurate. All the pots are static free. The battery compartment is clean and all the keys are straight and work perfectly. As you can see from the photos it’s in outstanding condition and has very little use.
The only cosmetic point is there is a small crack around the source mixer where it was knocked a while ago but it has been repaired when it was serviced, apart from that it’s perfect.
The synth includes the modulator grip and bracket and I can include a power adapter if you don’t have one. It runs on 12v d.c” Link
“Unit is not working. (I put an AC adapter on it, and it did show some synth audio sounds for a short while through headphones). Unsure if the adapter had enough current rating. Voltage and polarity was correct. Battery compartment has corrosion from batteries being stored. Sold AS-IS for parts or for a project. I have seen where some do a pretty good job on ebay by selling a knob, or key at a time. Only the synth / keyboard you see in the photo is for sale. (no other accessories). I opened it to show a couple of interior shots.” Link
“Not much to say on this Classic Synth that you probably don’t already know.
Been in my smoke free studio for years, no corrosion in the battery compartment and has power supply I will include in the sale.
Great synth and as you know great sound.” Link
“In amazing cosmetic and physical condition. The SH101 sounds amazing, especially on the low end. Those dub step warble base lines can be dialed in quickly. Cool sequencer too.” Link
“A rather sorry state of affairs for such a classic synth!
This was purchased to help repair a non-functioning 101 a while back, however it never got used so I am selling as is.
THIS IS FOR SPARES ONLY. IT IS NOT WORKING.
The synth PCB and controlling PCB have been cut out and can be seen on top of the synth in the image.
These PCBs may well be working, but I have no way of testing them to be sure. Also, the PCBs for the I/O and the bender/mod section are still inside the case – again I cannot specify whether they are functional.
Plus points – The case is in very good condition, the keys still feel good. Also a large amount of the original potentiometer/slider caps are present.
Anyone looking for a major repair project for a 101 would find this kit of parts very useful.” Link
“Made 1982-86, In good clean order , with serial number label inside the battery cover checked over and is all fine and fully working there are no modifications and a new power adapter is included.” Link
“Selling my SH101 which has been stored in my loft for 25 years, emigrating so selling up.
No battery cover. Never had batteries so no corrosion, bender wheel has come slightly unattached but that can easily be replaced for approximately £60
A few sliders are bent (pictured) otherwise all works fine. Has kept its colour too. Grey not yellow!!” Link
If you’re looking at this then you know what it’s all about.
I have owned this 101 for 18 years, but have rarely had an opportunity to use it. I can verify it works off the mains and via batteries. All sliders, switches and buttons function as far as I can tell. I have given it a slight clean, just largely to get the dust off it that its accumulated over the its time in the attic.
You can see from one of the pictures that batteries have leaked in it at some point – but this doesn’t effect it working with batteries. The battery lid stays closed OK, but is slightly damaged – see picture also. (The teeth that hold it in have snapped off)
It sounds so good, that firing it up to test it still works has made me hugely reluctant to sell – but then I know I’ll not make use of it in the future – and if you’re in the market for one of these you’ll appreciate they are so magnificent that they need to be used/heard – so I hope it ends up in a good home.” Link
” The ultimate Analog Synth, Collectors item! Mint and very rare in this condition.” Link
“I have decided to part ways with my beloved Roland SH101 synthesizer, in the very rare red color. Ir’s in great condition and fully functional. Minus a few small scruffs on the sides/corner it’s in perfect shape, the front is super clean. Tunes up perfect and calibrates across all octaves. I’ve owned a few Sh101′s and it’s hard to find one that actually stays in tune like this. It was serviced in the past year by my tech and is in great shape ready to use for your studio. I did have one mod professionally done to it to help it stay in tune. Most old SH101′s have a failing power button. Due to this they tend to tune/calibrate poorly. Instead of replacing the power button only to have it happen again in time, you can bypass the power button (so the synth stays on when plugged in) but this enables it to keep perfect tune everything time it’s powered up. A vital mod if you want to record melodic music and play in tune across all the octaves! Definitely worth having. A great keyboard for leads, bass and effects, with a useful built in sequencer and arpeggiator. Make it Yours! A techno acid analog dream!
This synth is 100% functional and good to go! Check out these two demo videos I made showing its flawless performance. ” Link
“Most reading this will know exactly all about this very popular synthesiser.
Mine is in very good condition with no obvious marks.
As with a lot of these units the grey now has a greenish tone to it.” Link
“Absolutley fantastic synth and it’s RED!! Amazing analogue sound. In superb condition. There are some light marks on the side and back panels but hardly noticeable. Especially as you will normally be looking at the front fascia which is in astounding condition considering age. Been kept in a box for several years (without batteries left inside) and only seen the light of day very occasionally. Always brings a smile to my face when I plug it in and start playing. This really is an awesome sounding and looking piece of synth history that will make the perfect prize for the right person. ” Link
“I am selling my mint Roland SH-101 analog monophonic synthesizer because I am no longer using it in my current setup. This particular SH-101 is in incredible condition! I’ve never used such a mint piece of gear that is 30 years old. This thing is incredible. Sonically & cosmetically it is flawless. I love this synthesizer so much, but it is time to sell.” Link
“This is a fully functional used Roland SH-101 Analog Synth.
It sounds great, i’m just reducing my gear and simplifying my workflow.
As you can see in the pictures the compartment for the battery is not available and there is some rust near battery inputs. In addition, there is a chip on one of the black keys. All visible in the picture.
Other then that the keyboard works and sounds great. ” Link
“The synth has been tested and it’s fully working. There is one fader cap missing but it’s only the cosmetic issue. ” Link
“MIDI, Nova Mods, and Blue LEDs have been installed. Has been professionally cleaned and calibrated. Battery cover and power transformer included. Link for downloadable user manual in ad.” Link
“Transpose Lever is missing – still works if you stick something in there to move it. Lever can be fixed pretty cheap. Some scuff marks on top right of device (pictured).
This unit is fully functional. It does include the optional hand grip and a guitar strap. The power supply included is not the original one, but it’s a good one that is nice and quiet. No noise or hum. There are a few cosmetic scratches on the top. Also the transpose lever is missing. I believe it can be fixed pretty cheap. Pretty nice vintage unit and is a must have for the audio collector! ” Link

“For sale: 1 x Roland SH 101 monophonic synth unit and power cable. No original box or instruction manual.
I doubt that this needs much of an introduction – although for those that didn’t know, this is sought after vintage sythesiser from the early 1980′s.” Link
“Vintage Sh101 for sale including the Modulation grip and original manual.
This synth is in really good condition and works well.I have used it at my studio for years.
It has a really fat analog sound and no plug-in can come close for bass, leads and FX.
I can guarantee to pack it up very well as I would expect it myself.”
“For sale is my old Roland SH-101 which comes with a Phillip Rees Little MCV MIDI to CV converter, a pair of 3.5mm to ¼ inch jack leads for CV and gate, a device I made to filter out the hum from power transformers, a midi cable and a couple of patch leads as I have a few spare – they may be useful if you intend to use the MIDI to CV for other equipment.
I originally bought it second-hand (from Cash Converters no less) around 2002/3 and it has been kept in smoke-free conditions since then. My usage of it has dwindled over the past couple of years and, to be frank, I’m in need of the cash. It is a reluctant sale as it is a fantastic synth and all the features are in good working condition.
I have calibrated the tuning so the octaves are correctly spaced and I also removed the keyboard assembly to clean the keys as best I could, though didn’t disassemble the actual assembly. I have also given all the plastic knob caps a clean and cleaned and lubricated all of the potentiometers (sliders and knobs). There was some surface rust (probably battery leakage?) on the bottom plate and on a bit of the keyboard assembly which I have scrubbed off as best I can.
The cosmetic flaws in the unit which I am aware of are: some of the screws for the backplate are missing, there is a tiny bit chipped off next to the battery cover and there is the odd mild dint or scratch, especially on the rear corners. The these are detailed in the pictures below. The main cosmetic flaw is that the plastic casing has suffered from photo-degradation, giving it a yellowed hue. This is mostly evident by looking under the battery compartment cover where the original grey is visible.
I don’t have a spare power supply but I will include a device I made for removing the power hum that is audible with some cheaper power supplies (like the Maplin adjustable supply I have). The box simply consists of a very high µF capacitor wired correctly. You will need a 9-12v power supply with the tip wired for negative polarity. I don’t have any batteries of the correct size to properly test the battery compartment but it turned on with an assembly of smaller ones held in by hand.” Link
