Roland SH-101 Analog Monophonic Synthesizer

You are looking at without a doubt one of (if not) the cleanest SHS-101s available on the market. This thing is stupid, we're not sure this has even been played in all honesty. Original modulation arm, original fitted case, original strap (!!!) and original power adapter. 

Used by legendary musical icons such as Aphex Twin, Crystal Method and Chemical Brothers, the SH-101s reputation most certainly precedes it. One of the most iconic acid bass and lead sounds, the 24db low pass filter has a creamy and rich resonant peak which will make you wet your pants at any frequency. Although somewhat limited in features and functionality, the beautiful simplicity will have you crafting 80s techno tones and reaching for your Vicks inhaler in no time. It has a 100 step sequencer (more than most modern sequencers) and an arpeggiator as well. CV/Gate In/Out are also present on the thoughtfully presented control panel. 

Included is the 100V power adapter so you will either need a step down transformer or a 240V to 9~12V supply. The modulation grip is a little temperamental when it comes to holding frequency (slight waver almost negligible, it's a spring loaded potentiometer after all), but is fine for live use (we can't imagine it being used in a studio setting). Other than this, it's had a light clean and check over before listing and is working perfectly.
