sx1000“Used whilst I was at school, but now no longer working. I’m afraid i’m not getting any sounds now, but when working, it produced some fantastic ‘PHAT’ bass sounds.

Therefore it’s being sold for SPARES OR REPAIR ONLY.

As for the condition, there is slight surface rusting on the control displays, but all the knobs are there, with the colour coding also present.

I’m afraid my parents got rid of the sound cards which fit over the knobs (Ggrrr!!), so they are NOT included.” Click here to visit listing on eBay

jen sx1000 “Verkaufe einen älteren, wohl sehr seltenen JEN SX 1000 Synthetone Analog-Synthesizer aus den 1970er Jahren. Habe das Gerät mal zum Spaß gekauft, aber doch nicht genutzt, da ich eigentlich Gitarrist bin. Jetzt nimmt es nur Platz weg, deshalb raus damit 😉

Ich habe den Synthie an Strom und Verstärker angeschlossen und alles durchprobiert. Alle Keys und Regler funktionieren. Bei ein paar Regler ist altersbedingt ein leichtes Kratzen zu vernehmen, das aber größtenteils nach ein paarmal hin- und herregeln wieder weggeht. Wirklich nix erwähnenswertes, aber der Ordnung halber sei es gesagt. Wie auf den Bildern zu sehen ist, sind ein paar Stellen auf der Rückseite etwas angerostet. Oben fehlen ein paar Reglerkappen. Laut Recherche im Netz scheint das eine altbekannte “Krankheit” des Geräts zu sein, insofern sind eh noch viele vorhanden ;-)” Click here to visit listing on eBay

sx1000
The 1uF electrolytic input capacitor which forms a low pass filter has been replaced with a 3uF polypropylene to subtly improve the bass response (one of the common complaints about the SX1000 is poor bass). The potentiometers in the signal path have been replaced with high quality conductive plastic type, which will permanently cure the crackles and noise. The feel is not affected, you cannot tell the difference. Most Jen’s for sale will have noisy pots or had them sprayed with contact cleaner, which only works for a few months. I still have the original components in case you want to restore the original crackly sound.

All the electrolytic capacitors have been replaced with high quality, long life Panasonic electrolytics, so should be good for another 40 years.

This synth looks like it has been been gigged in a previous life and has the stickers (and knocks) to prove it. Most unusually though it is only missing one knob cap, and the rest are the original colours in the correct place. Bear in mind this is at least 35 years old, so is not immaculate but I think it still looks great.” Click here to visit listing on eBay

sx1000“Jen Synthetone SX1000 Vintage Analogue Monophonic Synth circa 1978 serial number 06492

Works perfectly, no crackly pots at all. Wooden end-cheeks in excellent condition and most importantly all, yes, ALL of the coloured knob tops are present unlike all items listed on Ebay in recent memory!

Lovely little analogue synth, great for bass, leads and percussive effects. The PWM is especially good and there’s a separate ADSR for the analogue 12db filter as well as the usual controls for VCA.” Click here to visit listing on eBay

Vintage Jen SX-1000 analogue synthesizer in full working order has some coloured control caps missing and shows general wear.
The Jen SX-1000 is an old Italian mono-synth. It has a single analog DCO with three waveforms: sawtooth, square, and PWM (Pulse Width Modulation).
There is an analog filter (12dB/octave) with cutoff, resonance, and LFO modulation.
There is also a simple ADSR envelope for shaping your sounds.
In addition there are also white/pink noise generators a glide effect and a vibrato effect. ” Click here to visit listing on eBay

“My Jen SX1000 analogue synth.

I’m having a studio clear out. This JEN has sat in my smoke free studio for years. Occasionally being called upon to deliver a fat bass line, or vintage lead riff.

It’s in good condition considering its age.. But usual signs of wear also … But hey this synths like 30+ years old.” Click here to visit listing on eBay

“My modified Jen SX-1000 Synthetone Analogue Synthesizer.

I’m having to sell due to being skint (thanks huge dentist bill).. It’s fully working and in good condition for the age, probably built around 1979 looking at the serial number.

The condition is good, not mint as there’s some dings and scuffs in the wood cheeks, but what you’d expect for a synth 35 years old or so. The metal panel has some slight discolourization, as can be seen in the photos, but there’s no rust coming through. I’ve always given the synth a polish every month to keep it protected and it’s never got any worse.

One of the previous owners also removed the red anodizing from the knob caps in the VCO section. Personally I think this makes the Jen look less toy-like (I was never a fan of the muticoloured knob caps). all caps are present.

I’ve serviced the synth, gave all pots a good clean & replaced one. I’ve also modded the synth a fair amount, but still keeping the stock look (apart from 1 small 3 pos switch on the fascia & Audio In jack on rear)

I followed mods from various sites on the net. especially Neil Johnson’s page. (where he proves that it has a 24db filter NOT a 12db as everywhere else states)” Click here to visit listing on eBay

“Meet Gunter. He’s not the most handsome chap, he’s Italian made with a German name. He has one knob missing, which he is slightly embarrassed about, but can easily be replaced. His pots need a clean too. The main issue with him though is his LFO, it doesn’t go fast or slow when you turn the LFO dial. The tone remains static without cycling. Apart from that he works fine and sounds good.” Click here to visit listing on eBay

“Here we have my beloved Jen. She is a beautiful thing in great condition as you will see in the photos. Built in around 1978, the Jen was the poor mans Moog. Still very highly respected today and very useable.

The externals are in very good condition. The control surface shows little sign of wear and all knobs are intact. The wooden side cheeks are in good condition too but do have some “age related marks” but that is about all.

All keys work and are responsive. As with most electronics of this age the pots are a bit scratchy but all work. I have not used this for about 5 years but I seem to remember it as being less noisy, therefore I think that the pots may recover with use.

The Jen is fitted with a flying mains lead, this is fitted with a vintage mains plug, in keeping! Output is via a single Jack socket.” Click here to visit listing on eBay

“Classic vintage synth.
Check the web for reviews and full specs of this funky little analogue synth.
All of the knobs (filters, wave shapes, PWM, volume, tuning, octave changer, etc.) are working fine.
This early synth comes with cards to lay over the filters to recreate specified sounds (Hammond organ, human voice, electronic drum, etc.) as seen in the photos.
It comes in it’s original box.

However, no matter which key on the keyboard you press, you get the same note.
You can adjust the octave and pitch as mentioned above, but don’t seem to be able to play different notes.
This unit obviously needs fixing.
I have tried to reflect this in the starting price and am happy to answer any questions.” Click here to visit listing on eBay

Jen, SX1000 @ 30 July 2013, Comments Off on Jen SX1000

“Hello – here for sale is a Jen SX1000, a classic Italian made monophonic synth. This particular synth is in unusually good cosmetic condition for its age, showing no rusting and exhibiting all the original coloured tops on the knobs, something which is very rarely seen with this model.

Unfortunately, there are issues. Firstly, there is a minor chip to the 4th key, although this is purely cosmetic. Also, as if often the case with these synths, some of the control knobs crackle a little but this can easily be remedied with some contact cleaner. However, the main issue exhibited is a sort of intermittent ‘overmodulation’ that can occur on certain patches, namely on the pulse width modulation waveform on 4′. The best way to describe it is that it’s almost like a bitcrusher/chiptune sort of sound, only not deliberate. I imagine this is an easy fix (perhaps to the PWM pot?) that someone who wasn’t as inept as me could fix. However, I’ve never really found it to be a problem and is a fairly usable ‘patch’ if you’re into that sort of thing. Like I say though, this is very intermittent.

Also included in the sale is 6 original patch overlays should you want to mark down your own settings or feel as if the track you’re working on could benefit from the Jen’s famous ‘human voice’ patch. (Ok, probably not). Either way, this is a good added bonus as you rarely see them listed.” Click here to visit listing on eBay
