Roland SH-1

“A Roland SH-1 Synthesizer.

Comes from a smoke free home.

It was my fathers. He played it occasionally when i would visit and i remember it working back then when he was in better health.

There don’t appear to be any broken components, But I have not tested it any way and have no way of testing it.
It is sold AS IS.

It powers up and the lights work. Back plate says its wired 117 volts. The Japanese listings on eBay are all 100 volt and need some sort of transformer. This doesn’t need that transformer as far as im aware, i could be wrong? but i never saw my dad use any sort of adapter with it.

The keys seem to all spring back perfectly when pressed.
The sliders and knobs all seem to move accordingly. One of the sliders knobs is missing but it slides perfectly.

Its a touch dusty. I dusted it lightly but didn’t want to clean it any further as im sure someone with more experience will do this correctly and i didn’t want to possibly damage the surfaces with any type of cleaner, or get water on anywhere near the keys/knobs/sliders etc..” Click here to visit listing on eBay

“Roland Vintage SH1 With Original Flight Case And Manual.

The SH1 is an original mono synth by Roland from 1978. It comes with original Roland flight case and manual.

The flight case is missing one of the bottom stands – see photos.

The manual is missing the cover and some of the pages have come away from the binding.

The keyboard has a slight crack on the back of its case which does not affect performance in any way. – see photos.

Works well have never had any problems. Selling due to needing space in studio and not really using it much.

Has an envelope follower function which I have used with electric guitars which sounds great. ” Click here to visit listing on eBay

“Roland SH1 Vintage Analogue Synthesizer.

This is an absolute beauty of a synth. It is very capable and is in good working condition. It still has the original protective carry case and all original keys, knobs and sliders.

This is a Japanese 100v import so you will need a step down voltage converter. I can supply one at a small cost or recommend a high quality professional brand.” Click here to visit listing on eBay

“Used, great shape for it’s age. I had some problematic sliders replaced. Pitch bend potentiometer has to be nudged into center sometimes but didn’t bother me enough to have replaced when I took in for service. As with all analog synths, pitch can drift while warming up .” Click here to search for synths on eBay

“Great condition SH-1 monosynth. I had the geniuses at Rainbow Electronics Sacramento install new custom sliders for hipass cutoff, VCO and VCF sensitivity range controls. White noise switch has occasional small idiosyncrasies, but didn’t bother me enough to have it swapped. Pitch can be unstable when warming up because it is a 40 year old ANALOG synth! This was a new thing for me I am a software guy, wanted some rich tones to sample for my vocoders. This synth sounds raw, deep, and phat- there isn’t a youtube video that really does it justice. 100v Japan unit, you will want to pick up a little transformer box.” Click here to search for synths on eBay

“Title says it all! 100% perfect working condition. Really beautiful condition, with all original knobs, keys, switches, sliders, logos, etc. present and accounted for. Please see the picture of the top left corner of the synth- please note that there is a small crack in the case. Really of only concern to obsessive collectors. The dude that I had bought this from on Reverb also claimed that he had bought this from the legendary Three Wave Music in NJ- analog synth Nirvana.”
