Roland SH-1000

“Incredible vintage synthesiser. The SH-1000 was the first compact synthesiser produced in Japan, and the first synthesiser produced by Roland. My SH-1000 was manufactured in Sept 1974 (I’ve included a photo of the serial number for reference).

This one turns on and produces a good sound, but will require some professional maintenance to get it back up to full studio quality. There seems to be some glide/sustain between keys which can’t be turned off and will need fixing. As far as I can tell, buttons/switches are otherwise working ok – but again I’d recommend professional maintenance to ensure everything is back to 100%.” Click here to visit listing on eBay
