“Up for auction is this fantastic vintage Roland SH-1000 synthesiser. Cosmetically, it is in fair condition. However it must be understood we are selling this item as not working. It fires up and the power light comes on which is a very good sign. However, it does not make any sound. We believe the reason for this is because some of the preset rocker switches are disconnected inside the synth causing a break in the loop which forms the circuit to generate a connection. However, there may be another reason which we are not aware of. It should also be noted that there are some rocker switches missing (as shown in the photos) and there are five missing keys on the keyboard itself also. These keys can easily be found on eBay for around a fiver each. This will make a great project for an enthusiast or an engineer.

The rocker switches and caps can be purchased at present from James Walker of Synth Repair Services while stocks last and indeed he is a very good engineer who may be able to help repair this classic synthesiser.

The tremolo amp mod knob is not connected properly. Some of the white and black keys have cigarette marks on them. There are a couple of screws missing from the under side of the synthesiser and there are two plastic feet missing. There is also one bent knob. It should be noted that the wood end cheeks are fairly good.” Link

“Up for auction is a very rare vintage Roland SH-1000 synthesizer. It has been tested and is fully functional, for its age it’s in great cosmetic condition. Comes with retro Orange vinyl red carpeted heavy duty case. The SH-1000 is a monophonic analog synth with a single oscillator feeding a lowpass filter, an ADSR envelope, and two LFOs.” Link

sh1000 ” Roland SH1000 vintage synth in BRILLIANT condition. You can see from the photos that it’s in near perfect cosmetic condition, considering it’s age (almost 45 years!!) and the only serious defect it has is the address of the first owner scratched onto the bottom of the unit (I am the second owner). It’s never been gigged and has only had studio usage whilst placed in a synth rack. IT comes with original case too.
I have tested the unit today at time of listing and it’s working very well indeed. It turns on straight away and all of the controls on the front panel work as they should, and the same goes for the coloured sound switches. It is a little crackly in places, and so it definitely needs a service. Some of the sound switches need two or three ‘goes’ before they start to work, but for a machine well into it’s 40s you can’t really expect much else! The keys are perfectly responsive, and so is the envelope and other bizarre effects! ” Link

sh100 “BRAND: ROLAND MODEL: SH-1000 SERIAL NUMBER: 140564 CONDITION: 2 of the knobs have chips in the tops. I believe the faux wood has been painted black and some reflecting strips were added. The Roland on the back is missing the O. A couple of the pots are a tiny bit scratchy. Everything seams to work. That said I can’t guarantee that everything is a hundred percent working do to the age and complete strangeness of this synth. I played it for over 3 hours and it is amazingly entertaining to play. It created such strange sounds it something feels like it’s from the future and not the past.” Link

used-sh1000 “This is an original vintage Roland SH-1000 Synthesizer. Roland’s first ever synthesizer, starting production in 1973.

It works and makes some strange / interesting noises, fiddling with the dials and keys effects the sounds. Not knowing too much about vintage synths, or synths in general i’m not sure if it works 100% correctly, there are some crackles when pressing some of the keys etc. It is getting near 50 years old though, so it’s surprising it still makes any sound at all! It’s in good condition generally, some characterful patina going on with the dials area. One of the keys is broken off on the bottom (see photos), but this can be replaced easily.” Link

This was the first synth model that Roland released for mass production back in the ’70s

Amazing sounding analog oscillators and filter for a very affordable price. Has the classic analog warmth an texture that is very hard to replicate with a software synth

Please note that the wooden sides on the chassis are missing. Don’t ask me why, this is something the previous owner did. Doesn’t affect stability or operation at all though

The synth show signs of use but nothing you wouldn’t expect from a machine almost 50 years old

The electronics are in perfect conditions and have been recently checked by service tech. All potentiometers faders and switches have been cleaned and they feel smooth and crackle free” Link

sh1kI’m selling my SH1000.

it really is a beast and does some weird and cool stuff, i hope that it can go to a home where it gets used more than i have time to use it 🙁

have a little look on you tube for people playing their sh1000 and you’ll get a better impression than what i can tell you.

Or maybe you already know.

they made an sh2000 after this one, which is nothing compared to this.

2 unique points about this particular one is that it has ALL its paddle switches (usually some if not all are broken) and it also has its original hard case, with a yellow velvetine lining!

all of the keys are in perfect condition, with no chips or damage.

The only cosmetic thing i saw was a little bit of deterioration of the black paint on the control panel which you can see if you look closely in the relevant photo. ” Link

rolandsh1000 “This Roland SH-1000 is in near perfect working order. All keys and flippers work, and all knobs, switches, and gliders are responsive. Tuning knob works properly as well as the glide button. Like many analog synths 30+ years in age, the only issue is that sometimes it takes a minute or so to warm up. This synth was recently cleaned and looked over by Innermuze audio repair, out of Detroit Michigan. Unfortunately, this synth does not include the stand accessory to hold written music, and does not include a manual or case. Extreme care will go into shipping. No returns.” Link

sh1k” 1973 Roland SH-1000 Synthesizer resembles a home organ more than a commercial synth, with 10 simple preset voices, the SH-1000 can be manually tweaked to create new sounds. Features include white and pink noise generators, portamento, octave transposition and a random note generator.

Perfect working condition with all keys/buttons/knobs present and working.” Link

“Here is a serious gem of a 1974/5 analog synthesizer. This Roland SH-1000 sounds fantastic and is 100% operational, tuning is good. (Don’t expect these to lock into tune like a modern Prophet 08)– this puppy is stable after a few minutes and occasionally needs a tweak there after.

This is in collector condition, maybe a few light scratches and few tiny spots but overall very clean, well kept and beautiful. All original parts, never serviced, original case (smells great- no must or odor), original manual (a $75 value in itself!), keys are straight and work great, every switch and slider tested by ear during highly enjoyed hours– it all works great.

All knobs, faders and switches are original and work great WITH ONE EXCEPTION, and this is the 1% that keeps this from being a $1000+ vault piece– the Sawtooth Rate knob’s potentiometer in the Mod. Gen. section (only controls the sawtooth speed of the tremolo option) has either come unscrewed or the shaft is possibly broken. (see picture #8) I believe it simply came off it’s nut because if you pull up on the knob and turn, the potentiometer still works well and changes the rate.

If I had the patience I would open it up and tighten that nut and double my take but alas, I am not a synth tech and I have learned moons ago not to screw with delicate beauty.” Link

“Working Roland Monophonic SH1000 Analogue Synthesiser from 1970s. Fully working. Roland’s first monophonic synthesiser.

Normally kicks in straight away, but if sounds drop out (temperature is a factor) leave it on for about 20 minutes.

The ADSR sounds and oscillators are the feature of this early synth and the preset sounds are not like today’s replica sounds, there’s a really ‘retro’ feel about them – for instance, the piano is more the soft Electric Piano sound.

Check out videos of the SH1000 on Youtube.

All the features are good (ADSR, Waw, Growl, Portamento, Vibrato, Tremolo, Random Note, Noise, Glide etc), all the keys work, none cracked or broken. It has all its knobs and sliders.

In the sound tabs, there is one repaired (the percussion tab) though you probably wouldn’t know it from above.

Also comes with a DP1 pedal for the Glide effect. I have reversed the polarity otherwise it holds the synth a tone lower in tuning and is only right when you take your foot off.

For the other foot pedal effect – VCF Control – (which is really excellent when used) you’ll need a volume pedal and go from the synth to the output jack (amp end) of the pedal. I can supply a heavy duty metal volume pedal for £20 (DeArmond Model 602) but it needs a new pot – I paid for it to be fixed but the engineer went sick and I collected it during repair without realising, so it still needs a new pot and I need a new engineer!

Cosmetically good for its age. On the controls casing there are little lumps. They don’t move or peel. It’s been like that for a long time and I’ve seen similar on others, so probably the trait to a particular batch of these models. There is a scrape on the right hand support. Other little knocks and bumps that don’t interfere at all with the machine overall.” Link
