“Up for purchase is this vintage Roland SH-3A Monophonic Analog Synthesizer with Built-In Case. This unit was cleaned inside and out and was tested; it is in good working condition. Shows some moderate wear to the finish but it looks good overall. The cover plate over the power cord compartment was missing the latch, so I made one; it does the job! Comes with a music stand that stores in the lid.” Click here to visit listing on eBay

“For sale is my beautiful Roland SH-3A. I bought this a few years back from a dealer in France and, despite being assured it had been serviced, it arrived with a number of faults. Fortunately, I’m able to do my own repairs (I have a degree in Electronics) and discovered around 8 dry solder joints and some fragile connector wiring, all of which I fixed. At the same time I checked all the other connectors, cleaned all the pots and re-calibrated the tuning. Since then it has remained rock-solid.
It has what looks like the original European plug – I use a UK adapter which I will include. The keyboard stand in the photos is not included!
As well as being in excellent working condition, it is also very clean cosmetically. It doesn’t look as though it has been gigged (the aluminium trim is very clean) and the cloth case covering is excellent with only a couple of minor blemishes. The lid is lined with blue felt which is only slightly worn, the chrome music stand that is stored inside the lid is pristine.” Click here to visit listing on eBay
“For sale is a 1973 example of the raw roland sh3-a monophonic analog synthesizer. Decent cosmetic condition. Sounds amazing! Has a few quirks. I suggest reading up on the split foot oscillator to better understand the way this thing works before bidding. The only issue this thing has is a few slightly scratchy sliders and the switches to change the wave shape of each individual feet of the oscillator are a bit finicky. With a gentle touch this is no impact on playability. Synth is built into it’s own case. I do in fact have the top cover but not the stand for sheet music.” Click here to visit listing on eBay
“Title says it all! This baby is in truly excellent cosmetic condition. No writings, stickers, burn marks, cracks, etc. anywhere! Perfect working condition as well. This is not the SH-3, but the SH-3A. Included is the original lid/case and power cable. This is the US edition (117V), not the Japanese one. All original knobs, sliders and buttons are present and accounted for. From a smoke-free home. These are getting increasingly hard to find. I bought this off of Reverb from a reputable seller who owns a shop, and although it is beautiful and special, I need the money (you know the story!). Grab it before someone else does! THIS IS THE ONE!” Click here to visit listing on eBay

“Here is a vintage analogue systhesiser with simple system as 1 VCO. but 5 sliders can be edit the oscilater like Organ’s draw bars. You can make short phrase and heavy thick bass sound by easy operating. All functions are working great. A paper to manual included. Its better to use solo play indeed. Every functions are working perfect. and the cosmetics are pretty fine too.” Click here to visit listing on eBay
This is an actual SH-3A (not an SH-3). The SH-3A has the much sought after filter. This machine is capable of making endless amounts of sounds. It’s only one oscillator but, is broken up into separate footages and wave selections with the eight foot voice having an independent chorus which you can dial in as much or as little as you want. Sample and hold features along with countless other choices of functions. Everything on this synthesizer is working 110% and sounds amazing! Cosmetically it is in really nice shape. There are a few tiny surface scratches that don’t amount to anything, the knobs with blue centers are not original, and I don’t have the lid. There is a small cig burn on the very last key but it doesn’t hinder anything. See the last pic for the cig burn. Otherwise, all is good and the keys are very level. You will not be disappointed with this machine. ” Click here to visit listing on eBay
