” Collectable classic 80s analogue 2-octave monophonic synthesizer, unfortunately non-operational (working copies sell for over £300 on eBay). Comes with manual, but without original box. May be repairable, or used for parts. Was popular in the mid-80s, often worn with a shoulder strap and an optional modulator grip. Retro analogue fans seem to like these synths.

Sold as faulty, with no guarantees. Was stored in a basement for several years, after which it was noticed that the batteries had leaked, making a mess of the battery compartment, a small auxiliary circuit board, and the rear metal cover (which is now rusty inside). A minor repair of the circuit board was attempted but unsuccessful; only working for a few seconds.

I was planning on a proper repair eventually, but decided to sell as faulty instead (now I have MIDI gear). The keys, controls and main circuit board seem fine, and I reckon there’s a good chance it could be repaired, but I cannot guarantee this. Failing a repair, you may be able to use most of it for spares.” Link

“Ich verkauf mein SH 101. Es ist gut erhalten, gut zu funktionieren. Batterie Federn sind leicht verrostet aber nicht Batterie Austreten.
Doch die Batterie Federn kann mann einfach wechseln.

Ich habe 2 mal SH 101 und du kannst es an meiner zuhause zu testen, in Kreuzberg. (Aber die Tasche nur eine!)

Test video würde gesandt auf wünsch.” Link

“Good condition!

It is “classic” analog synthesizer.

I think it is beautiful as old instruments.

Probably one of the best polyphonic analog synths available, sounds great and easy to play.

It works with battery.” Link

I’ve had this for 15+ years and it has been well looked after but sadly my finances mean that the time has come for it to find a new home. I’ve never gigged with it so it’s very good condition especially considering it’s age. There is a small mark on the back which has been there since I purchased it from Academy Of Sound in Stoke-On-Trent all those years ago. It’s hardly noticeable but in the interests of fairness I would rather point this out – refer to photo for more detail.

This is a great hands-on synth making it easy to create all those classic anologue synth sounds; from deep rumbling synth bass sounds to spacey swooshes and pretty much everything in between. Great for bass lines, killer leads and synth fx.” Link

“This is the Roland SH-101 Synth in great working order. I have had it in my Personal Collection for 16 years and used it in home recording. It is from a Smoke Free Pet Free home and has been cared for. It runs on C batteries or PSA-120 adapter which is Not included.This is a pleasure to play on headphones or live. The sound is unmatched by any newer models. It can also be strapped on like a guitar.” Link

“This Sh-101 is in near mint condition. I have never seen a better looking 101! All functions working and everything is very clean. Let me know if you have any questions! Does not come with an adaptor because I was using my Boss PSA-120s and I need it for my guitar pedals. The PSA-120 is the recommended replacement adaptor by Roland for the Sh-101.” Link

“Other than the cosmetic details and the bender, everything else is working 100%. Comes with the original Roland Power Supply. A couple of sliders are not as free-moving as others, but none are scratchy or non-functional. I am also including an extra slider for the Cutoff/Resonance, as it is the most used slider and will come in handy over time.

This synth was cared for and used often for several years. I am thinning out the herd currently and making room for a new home-made synth. I went through the entire unit, all circuit boards were tested and inspected, and I replaced power filtering electrolytic capacitors and refreshed all solder over all boards. I also did a rewiring of all of the panel button connections, as the original flimsy wiring on the inside was beginning to come loose. It is all tuned up and properly calibrated.” Link

“You are bidding for a used Roland SH-101 complete with flight case and power supply (not original).

It is in good working order apart from some noise on a couple of sliders.

Synthesiser is in very good condition. Flight case well used and is marked but entirely fit for purpose.

Sad to let this go but now married with children (and probably not going to be a popstar).” Link

“Artikel: vintage Roland SH101 SH 101 SH-101 Analog Synth Synthesizer

Zustand : altesbedingt gut, meiner Meinung nach soweit funktiosntüchtig, aber hier bin ich leider nur Laie. Ich habe das Gerät mit allen Tasten und Kombination ausprobiert und überall Soundveränderungen erhalten. Hier und da kratz ein Fader leicht und sollte gereinigt werden. Die Funktionsprüfung erfolgte über Kopfhörer. Über die Funktionsweise der anderen Ein/ und Ausgänge kann ich leider nichts aussagen. Auf dem Keyboad konnte ich einer weisen Taste ziemlich Mittig leider keinen Ton entlocken. Entweder ist diese defekt/bzw. verschmutzt oder das ist Standard und und gehört so!? Dem Klassiker liegt ein Netzteil bei das zwar nicht original ist, aber genau für dieses Gerät gemacht worden ist – also ein Nachbaunetzteil. Das Batteriefach ist schön sauber und hier waren wohl noch nie Batterien drin bzw. und daher sind auch keine ausgelaufen.” Link

It is in good working order apart from two sliders which only work a little bit, as follows:

” Up for grabs is my beloved Roland SH-101 synthesizer. It is nearly perfect with very few visible signs of use. This synth was studio use only and was never gigged! I am in the process of downsizing for a move and unfortunately I must pass her along to someone else. Analog synth lovers this is the one! ” Link

“The Roland SH101 is a dream to have in the studio and I guess you know all about it if you’re looking at this, but please see the blurb below for more info. The condition is fairly good for its age but as is often the case with the 101, there are a few pops and crackles from time to time – if you adjust the volume knob it will crackle but it’s fine once it has been adjusted (I just leave it on full). The machine has all of its knobs/sliders/buttons etc and they all work. There is a power supply provided and the battery compartment looks ok, but I have never used it as its always plugged in. It also comes with a printed manual (not original). I will ship pretty much anywhere at your own risk and you are welcome to collect it.” Link

“SH101, recently serviced by professional audio electronics engineer, fully operational and in great condition. Slight issue with power button was highlighted during service; touching the power button during performance causes the pitch to wobble slightly. This is a fantastic synth, a genuine classic, as you are no doubt aware. Comes with replacement Boss power supply. ” Link

“Hallo,

Ein Klassiker zu dem man nicht mehr viel erzählen muss…

Der Synthesizer befindet sich sowohl optisch als auch technisch in einem absolut tadellosem Zustand.

Die SH-101 wurde 2012 in einer namhaften deutschen Fachwerkstatt komplett gewartet, gereinigt und kalibriert!
Somit ist sie stimmstabil und alle Regler und Potentiometer funktionieren einwandfrei.
Der schriftliche Nachweis hierfür wird mitgeliefert.

Bei weiteren Fragen einfach anschreiben!” Link

“This is a Roland SH-101 that has three of the NOVA mods installed. Audio input to the filter, three LFO speed settings, and the FM mod.

The synth’s power button has been replaced as it had the dreaded tuning drift problem, which FIXED all the stability issues. Works like a charm, sounds AMAZING as usual.

Comes with non-Roland power supply. Sorry, no manuals or other materials included. All sales FINAL.” Link

” Roland SH-101 synth. A great little synthesizer that can make great and enormous sounds. It is fully functional! The power supply died many years ago due to age but the key board has lived on through the modern miracle of batteries. I’m not sure of how long the batteries last but it is hours up-on hours. All it was ever used for was home recording, it was never gigged with. With effects like a tape echo or reverb this thing really comes alive. Alas, I don’t use it much any more but what a fun tool to use when you need it. I have owned this since 1983, so a very long time.” Link

” Roland SH 101 synthesizer in good condition. Grey color with modulation grip (the 80s key-tar look) and strap buttons for using a strap.
This is a classic monophonic, pre-midi, voltage controlled synthesizer with on-baord arpeggiator and sequencer.
This has been in my studio since the days of it’s manufacture. I am the 2nd owner.
Included is the original owner’s manual and a DC power supply adaptor(perhaps not original but older Roland supply from the same era.)
All functions work.
Full disclosure: The middle G key has demonstrated intermittent stickiness. It always works but sometimes requires a bit more force to trigger. All other aspects of this instrument are in perfect working order.” Link

“Roland SH-101, analogue monophonic synthesizer. If you are reading this you most likely would know about this little beast. One of the best mono synths from Roland. In excellent condition, with the modulation grip.
The synth has been overhauled, everything cleaned, no scratchy sliders, a complete recap was done using high quality nichicon capacitors.
Everything has been tested and works 100%. Smooth and no scratchy sliders, sounds great.

The battery cover is missing the little hinges, this will be the only flaw of the synth. Otherwise in great condition, no visible scratches.
There is no adapter. Any 9 volt 200~500mA from a guitar store will work just fine.” Link
