Roland SH-1000

“Here’s a beautiful Roland SH-1000. There are some obvious signs of age because this is Roland’s first synthesizer and is almost 50 years old.
Completely functional. All sliders, pots and stitches have been cleaned. No scratchy noises!”

Roland SH-1000

“THIS IS IT!
Roland (solely a Japanese company at this time) came up with this VERY nice basic analog synth in 1973. This was THE sound that made the Steve Miller Band “Fly Like An Eagle” album an immortal classic. I can remember being completely astonished the thing got the sounds it could in a completely easily-portable package- you could (still can) play this comfortably on your lap. It couldn’t do all that a mini-Moog could (signal routing is essentially fixed), but it had other features like NOTHING else that small and lightweight at the time.

Everything I can think of (as an experienced keyboard guy), I checked.
All the keys work.
The oscillators all work.
All VCF functions work.
Portamento and noise generators all work fine.
The VCF stage has some internal noise, much more than new, obviously, so it functions as a feedback oscillator when the Q is set high- this, to me, isn’t a bug, it’s a feature, and a fun one.

One of the “tablet” style switches was broken off, but still perfectly usable, I kludged up an extension to make it easier to actuate- there are a bunch of old home organ models that use the same type of tablet (not Yamahas, though, which is what’s sitting here at the shop and easy to get to)

Serial #255385, I haven’t been able to pin down DOM from that yet.”

“Having a tidy up of my home studio so reluctantly selling this old classic synth that i’ve owned for 30 years. It’s in great condition for its age and never gigged.

I’ve set quite a high reserve as i’ll only part with this beauty at the right price ”

Roland SH-1000 Project Machine

” Needs some TLC! Powers up and produces sound, but has random sounds/waveforms in addition to the preset chosen. I’m told this is due to old capacitors which are allowing voltages to leak through, instead of blocking them as it should. The only other thing I noticed was a little dust in the faders which makes a temporary scratching sound when they are first moved, which can be easily cleaned. A couple minor screw holes in the wood end panel where someone apparently attached it to an organ. It includes a plastic music stand which attaches to the top. This is being sold as part of an estate liquidation. No manual or literature is included.” Click here to search for synths on eBay

“Hail the mighty SH1000 which was used on the BLUE PETER THEME TUNE! and other better tracks, its a nice machine, I’m getting rid of it as I don’t play it anymore… its got a nice noise, and it makes some nice sonic squeeks…Some keys that have been repaired by the previous owner, the panels on the side have a tiny groove cut into them. None of this effects the item, the synth still looks great in my opinion for something that was made in the 1970s.I don’t trust the postie with analogue synths, so sorry you will have to pick it up!” Click here to search for synths on eBay

“Roland sh1000 no longer being used just killing time in its flight case. still sounds fantastic used on many classic tracks. keyboard works as it should and would prefer cash on collection but understand that can be hard for some people so offering a insured delivery service on top.” Click here to search for synths on eBay >
