“For sale is a Jen SX1000 Italian Vintage Analogue Synthesizer MonoSynth. If you’re looking, you know what it is! A fantastic introduction to analogue synthesis, great sounds and all wrapped up in that awesome mid 70’s styling.

Condition is good although showing signs of use in line with a near 50 year old synth. This unit is complete with all knob caps (which are usually missing). Missing black plastic trim on front and rear of end panels but does not in any way affect operation. May have a few pot crackles but nothing that a spray of contact cleaner wouldn’t iron out. ” Click here to visit listing on eBay

“Synth in working order and in good condition – all keys and controls work fine. Only issue is with the Pulse wave, which is practically inaudible on the 20% – 5% (thinnest) settings in the highest octaves (8′ and 4′) but fine on wider widths – see video. The coloured knob caps are missing from 4 knobs – the VCO Tune, Glide, Output Volume and Filter Release knobs. Comes with original manual and patch sheet overlays.” Click here to visit listing on eBay

“Jen Elettronica SX 1000 1979 Analogue Synth.

Very rare vintage analogue from Jen in Italy. Super weird unique sound.

Good cosmetic condition apart from coloured discs missing from some of the pot knobs (see picture)

Some crackles audible on output – sounds like a crusty pot, does work, if I was buying I would have it serviced before using in my synth emporium. ” Click here to visit listing on eBay

“Sadly I have decided that, due to some years of not being used, it’s time to sell my Jen SX1000 monosynth.

I’m sure that if you’re reading this then you know what the capabilities of the instrument are: single oscillator (DCO) producing square, saw or pulse waveforms (with PWM) feeding into a rather nice analogue filter. Individual envelopes for VCA and VCF, and some basic modulations courtesy of the LFO.

Having just switched it on for a quick check, it still sounds very nice – so this is most definitely a reluctant sale.” Click here to visit listing on eBay

“Cosmetically it’s in good condition for its age with a few surface marks but nothing major. A few knob caps are missing too.

The synth plays and works fine however quite a few of the knobs are scratchy when turned. Every knob does what it is supposed to do but as I say some scratchy noises happen when they are moved – I’m not sure if a good clean would fix this or not.” Click here to visit listing on eBay

“This is a very vintage synth. It does have some crackle on the pots. Everything works. Some blemishes and wear on paint.

Does very good PWM lead sounds and Square Basses among other things. Highly modifiable synth if that’s your thing.” Click here to search for synths on eBay

“Jen SX 1000 Vintage Monophonic Synthesizer. Made in Italy. Sounds and looks awesome. This machine has been gone through thoroughly by a tech last year and is completely working. No missing knobs or damage – a few scrapes and nicks, superficial corrosion and missing color button tops. A back-up oscillator chip is included in case the current goes out in the future. The small chip underneath one of the keys shown in the photos doesn’t affect play and isn’t visible from any other angle.” Click here to search for synths on eBay

“Jen SX1000 in working order.
All the keys and all the knobs are fully operational.
The fascia has some age deterioration as can be seen in the pictures.
There are a number of coloured caps missing from the control knobs which are all original and otherwise complete.
Prior to my ownwership it had been modified to include an internal amplifier and speaker which I had removed and put back to original when I had it serviced. The holes that were drilled to act as a speaker ‘grill’ are still there, as seen. There are a few marks and chips but none of this affects the operation.
It comes with it’s own purpose built wooden carry case. The case is lined with carpet underfelt which has become discoloured and could do with replacing.
I have fired it up and played with all the knobs and keys and all seems fine. The output level pot is a bit scratchy in operation but it’s been stored in it’s case unused for about 15 years so a bit of use may clear that.” Click here to search for synths on eBay

“Funky little Jen synthesizer received from a clearance. Not entirely sure of the complete workings of it but seems to work absolutely fine. All controls do something & handily has these cardboard guides to tell you where to turn the knobs to which helps. Couple of caps missing & controls may need a clean but in good general condition. No buy it now price as not sure of worth.” Click here to search for synths on eBay

“Here’s a great little keyboard in fantastic condition, especially considering it’s been around for about 40 years! As well as retaining all the shiny coloured caps that usually seem to go missing from the knobs and switches, it even still has the cardboard templates that feature suggested settings.
There are a few crackly pots that could probably do with a blast of switch cleaner, but every key works just fine and it makes some great noises. I’m no synth expert, so feel free to come and have a look/play and maybe someone can tell me what all these controls do!
You will not find a more complete (and shiny) example of this, which I’m told is becoming a very rare and sought after instrument.” Click here to search for synths on eBay

“Lovely little JEN SX1000 that has seen a major refurb to get it into really nice condition.

All the electrolytic capacitors have been replaced with new but most importantly all the horrible old crackly potentiometers have gone to be replaced by very high quality new items. None of the pots make any crackles anymore and the JEN works just how it should. New knobs have been fitted to match the new potentiometer spindles and a headphone amplifier has been added to allow practice without an amp.

The SX1000 was many peoples first synthesiser back in the early 80’s and its sounds still hold a fond place in the hearts of many. They used to be everywhere but are getting increasingly hard to find these days.

Cosmetically this is clean and tidy but its does have age related knocks on the case and the lettering on frequency control have been rubbed away and the paint has needed touching up in that area.” Click here to search for synths on eBay
