” Very good condition, only small scratch on back, see photo. Tested, all functions seem to work well. Sounds good through headphones. I am not a musician, don’t know much about synthesizers but appears good.

Adding more info:
I got it from an estate, don’t know it’s history.
Each button, key, switch or knob makes a sound or an effect. Seems perfect. I don’t know how to compose a song or a tune, but I can make some cool sounds come out!
Don’t have time or interest to take it to a music shop for an evaluation. I set opening price low compared to market. Bid accordingly.” Click here to visit listing on eBay

“The synth is in excellent condition. There is a small hole at each end (see pics) that have been there since I purchased it some years ago. They are in no way have any effect on the operation of the synth. Aside from those, cosmetically it’s amazing. Minor signs of wear, but nothing of note. All knobs and sliders are intact and all lights work perfectly. Audibly all is also fine with no crackle or any other issues. Overall, the synth is in perfect working order and a must-have classic! Please see pics for a better idea.” Click here to visit listing on eBay

“I am reluctantly selling my Roland SH101 from 1983 – All genuine, I have owned this one from new. …I purchased it from ‘Future Music’ in Chelmsford (no longer trading) and still have the receipt to prove it. So it’s a 1 owner since new item.

This unit is 35 years old and has been extremely well looked after. It has never been gigged and has had light studio use only (smoke free environment). For its age, it is in very good condition with every conceivable feature working as originally intended. It has recently been serviced / calibrated, So its ready to perform like new.

Cosmetically (for it’s age) the unit looks stunning, there are no broken keys or missing sliders, everything is where it should be. The case itself has no cracks or chips, however the ‘grey colour’ has changed slightly over the years from I guess, UV light exposure (…this of course does not affect the audio performance whatsoever).

The sale includes the genuine Boss PSU which was an extra at the time and if I can find them I have the original manual and programming charts (…I’ve just got to find them). I also have the original Roland service manual for this unit.” Click here to visit listing on eBay

“You know that sliding bass sound at the beginning of Prodigy’s “Firestarted?” This is the vintage analog synth whose brother made it. The SH-101 is very cool, especially for techno, drum&bass and ACID! It’s a monophonic bass synthesizer. Its sound lies somewhere between the TB-303 and a Juno bass sound. It has a lot of simple but cool features. You can control the VCF, pitch, LFO or all from the pitch bender. It has a white noise generator, arpeggiator with up, down and up/down patterns and a simple real-time sequencer. The LFO offers random, sine, square or noise waveforms. And normal or auto portamento effects give you that elastic bass sound. There are external clock inputs for the sequencer and arpeggiator, CV/GATE inputs and outputs and a CV hold pedal. Unfortunately, there is no patch memory storage and although it has no MIDI there are apparently upgrades available for it from many analog service companies that will allow you to incorporate it into any MIDI studio environment. It can also be controlled by MIDI using a CV/MIDI converter. It’s great for deep sub-bass sounds, sliding bass sounds or bubbly analog effects. This one comes with the optional Hand Grip so it can be strapped on like a guitar for live performance” Click here to visit listing on eBay

“The classic Roland SH-101 in great shape. Sounds fantastic.

Cosmetically, this synth is in very good condition. Minimal wear, but some from normal use. Overall, cleaner than most you’ll find. It is missing one fader cap from the envelope section. Check out the photos.

Functionally, the synth is in good shape, but there are two (common) issues that I have encountered.
First, the ever so common dirty power switch. If this is bumped, the oscillator pitch fluctuates slightly.
Second, the benders forward LFO control doesn’t seem to change anything. The bender still functions left to right for the vco pitch and vcf cutoff, it just doesn’t change anything when the bender is pushed forward.”

“Comes with original battery lid and after market power cord.
Fantastic condition please see all pictures. Battery compartment nice and clean. The bender works left to right but not upwards. This is the way I purchased it. I heard a small rattle in the unit and was told by the seller something came lose via shipping and should be an easy fix, but I am too scared to open it up.
However you can midi this thing up can get it to function. Other than that there are no other issues. I have priced it accordingly considering the age of these units and how many on the market are missing the battery cover and/or have battery damage. Only selling because i really need the cash for other investments. I will remove this listing if my cash flow improves thus keeping the synth in my collection.” Click here to visit listing on eBay

Roland, SH-101 @ 08 April 2018, Comments Off on Roland SH-101

“It does not come with an AC Adapter (must purchase your own due to possible sound interference), modulator grip attachment, or batteries. It works great. The tuning knob is lined up a bit off, but it tunes just fine. It runs for a long time on 6 size C batteries, or an adapter could be purchased for little money. It is in great working condition and is ready to play. Has been well kept in its case, and has nice white keys. If you put the batteries in and it doesn’t turn on, simply make sure the adjustable plate that the battery nipple touches is lined up for the appropriate battery. It take size C or another Japanese battery, which is P-14 if I am not mistaken. I had a guy buy it and send it back due to this, but I made sure the batteries were lined up and touching the metal and it worked like a charm for me. The white blemish on the bottom seems to be able to be cleaned off, but I left it as I acquired it. It comes with a carrying case it has been stored in which keeps it free of dust and what not. I have video of it working and sound samples taken showing there is no noise when recording even to PC on an open line. ” Click here to visit listing on eBay

“This unit powers up and all keys play. All controls can be adjusted. Part of the pitch/modulation wheel is broken off as shown, but it works OK. The connector for the power supply is working, but is currently wedged in position to maintain electrical contact – it would benefit from being fixed more permanently. There is discolouration on the cover and damage to one corner as shown in the photos. The main problem is a constant low level drone from one note which continues even when the volume control is turned right down. With the volume turned up it is relatively quiet in relation to the keys when played, but it is still a significant fault, which is why I am selling the unit as seen for spares or repair.

There is no power supply included in the sale. You will need to purchase a 9 volt DC power supply to use the unit. These are readily available on ebay.” Click here to visit listing on eBay

“Okay this needs NO introduction:

Ladies and gents the legendary SH101.

The tech at MPA just described this as “by far the best condition inside one of these I have ever seen”.

Been in my home studio for years with very light use and absolutely no stories or issues

I took high resolution close-up shots so you can see exactly the condition of this beauty.

Recent Full Service – 21st Feb 2018 including tuning AND intonation for the legendary tones AND true percussive sounds that often go missing with age. Cost £120 so factor that into any other item

The ONLY reason this is not listed as 100% mint is a scratch on the battery cover that I did about 8 years ago and the volume pot sometimes crackles on adjustment but NEVER in use. Advice on service was to leave alone and keep 100% original.

Complete with power supply this will be a gem in any studio / collection. I am setting this at a low low start so we can see exactly what these are really worth in this kind of condition and with recent service ” Click here to visit listing on eBay

MGS-1, Roland, SH-101 @ 18 February 2018, Comments Off on Roland SH-101 with Roland MGS-1 Modgrip

” The Roland SH101 is a classic analogue synthesiser from the 1980s. Despite being monophonic (i.e only plays one note at a time) it was in high demand in garage and techno band recordings of the time, especially for its funky bass sound. Being light and often strapped around the shoulders like a guitar it was consequently a very cool looking instrument to play while strutting your stuff. It is one of the few keyboards from that era that has maintained its value and is still in demand.

I used it for several years in the mid 80s, both on the road and on recordings, but since around 1989 it has stayed indoors and unused in my home, snug in its hard case. As a result there are no scratches or marks to speak of on the body. I recently had it serviced and cleaned, ordered a new power supply and had the interior of the hard case refurbished. As you can see from the photos the case is also in excellent condition and provides first class protection. ”

See pictures for most accurate description. This was used for recording and live performances with my old band but has been in the loft for last 10 years. Needs a bit of a clean.

“This package includes:

x1 used Roland SH-101
x1 used Roland hand grip for SH-101
x1 used manual

I purchased this SH-101 second hand in the 1980s. For the past fifteen years it has been in storage. Now, to save space, the synth needs to find a new home.

Overall, the unit is in good visual condition and was tested before sale. All features work, including the pitch bend wheel, hand grip, and sequencer. All LEDs illuminate.

Please note:

The SH-101 requires a little care. The unit turns on and operates, but the power socket and headphone jack have loose connections. I haven’t tested the other jacks. I have never used the CV/Gate.

There are marks on the casing to either side of the battery compartment (see photos).

One of the base plate screws is missing. One of the screws used to fasten a shoulder strap (not included) is missing.

The manual is discoloured with age and the back cover has a tear in one corner. Many pages are marked by pencil notes (see photos).

There are no original boxes.

There is no power adaptor.” Click here to visit listing on eBay
