“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.
For a 40 year old bit of kit it’s in great condition, no battery leakage in the battery compartment. All sliders, knobs, buttons, leds are all functional and not bent or deformed. Such an amazing classic sound that this synth produces.
There is slight damage to one of the keys as can be seen in the photo. Please note the key to the left of the damaged key seams to not be functional/temperamental. Could be the switch either needs replacing or having a bit of contact cleaner on it. Personally I don’t want to open up such a classic/vintage synth to diagnose the issue. ”
