"This is a very cool, and very collectable 1980's Yamaha SHS-10 Mini FM keyboard / keyboard controller / wearable Keytar. It is in good cosmetic condition, very good working condition, and is extremely collectible. The keyboard is a real wearable "Keytar" instrument, and it has it's own unusual FM 80's sounds, and it also has a MIDI output, so it can be used to control other midi instruments, including more sophisticated synthesizers / samplers. It may look like a toy, and I suppose it was meant to be, but it can be used to control professional instruments, wearing it on stage, playing it as if it were a guitar.
This one is the RED model Yamaha SHS -10R FM Synthesizer / Midi controller Keytar. All functions work GREAT! The tones, rhythms, chord memory, effects, all keys and buttons, the cool pitch bend wheel, MIDI out, DC in and line out / headphones jack are all in working condition. It is missing it's battery door, but this doesn't affect performance and can be replaced, use tape in it's place, or disregarded if using an adapter. It does have some wear and scuffs, mostly around the edges and back, and a little on the fonrt, but otherwise it looks great ... a fire engine RED freaky jump around on stage kinda great!
The keytar has effects such vibrato, sustain, rhythm control, voice style select, chord sequencer, parameter change, tuning, set voice list
and midi channel select. The 80's FM tones are fun, but the best feature is by far the MIDI controller, with the pitch bend, portamento, vibrato and sustain controls all within your left hand's fingers and really quite useful. I've hooked it up to many tone generators and synthesizers. In the past, I had another one of these that I plugged into a Yamaha FS1r... the most powerful synth that I've ever owned and it was insanely fun!
Depending on the MIDI module you have it plugged into ... all of these effects / controllers will transmit to your module or synthesizer. Sustain will hold notes, pitch bend will allow you to express your playing much like a guitarist bends his strings, the vibrato acts much like a modulation wheel, adding vibrato when the button is pushed. The portamento allows for sliding up and down in pitch between notes and even chords. Rhythm can be set to control the tempo to a MIDI sequencer / arppegiator, and changing sounds on the keytar can change sounds on your MIDI module as well.
This keytar takes batteries (6 "AA" sized, heavy duty or alkaline, either work fine)" eBay Link
"The SH-101 is very cool, especially for techno, drum&bass and ACID! It is a small, 32 key, monophonic analog synthesizer. It features one oscillator with 3 simultaneous waveforms, an 'octave-divided' square sub-oscillator, triangle and square/pwm waveform. It has a low-pass filter/VCF capable of self oscillation. The self oscillation filter can be used to make bassdrum sounds. The controls are simple to use as there is a slider or switch available for every single parameter, and there is an external trigger input to control the speed of the sequencer or the arpeggiator. The LFO is very fast and can be used to make fast arpeggios with decay down to zero volume, without retriggering the ADSR. External control is achieved using CV/Gate and not MIDI (as is the case with many older synths). A shoulder strap can be connected to it, and a small handgrip can be plugged into the side which contains a pitch bend wheel and a pitch modulation trigger. When slung over the shoulder it doubles as a "keytar"." eBay Link
The Roland AX1 was an icon of its time in the 80's and especially the red ones which are the most popular colour.
This one is in great condition and comes with a professionally made flight case." eBay Link
"LAST CHANCE! I had this listed not knowing if it worked but had to take it down after more testing with a power supply! I did not have one at the time. I have one now and it all works with a 12v dc600ma power supply. though it says 9v on the controller, it turned on and is all working! maybe it does not matter if it's more then 9v. but that's all I have to test with. Get a cool vintage controller here! Does not come with a power supply that I tested with. all works midi to my blofeld! last one on ebay sold for $300. Looks great for age! It's funky and it's all 80s!!!! " eBay Link

" Selling this keytar in good condition, along with a case and 6m long MIDI cable!
I bought it a year ago but since then have only used it at home once or twice, so it has seen very little use so I think it would be better off in the hands of someone who will use it. It is in good cosmetic condition, with only a few minor marks on the body, which could possibly be removed fairly easily; there are also some scratches around the connection area, but this is hidden from view when the instrument is in use.
These are fairly hard to come by in good condition but I am pricing it lower than other auctions since I want to sell it quickly!
It will be packaged securely and sent via a trusted courier to ensure it arrives safely, which will cost around £15-20." eBay Link

" Yamaha SHS 200 Keytar in good working condition. Runs from batteries or external power supply (not included) The main purpose of this Keytar is as a Midi controller as you can use it to trigger external midi sounds. I bought it to play in my band to swap between rhythm guitar and keys, but just after I bought it a keyboard player joined us full time so I never used it. Basically it has sat around unused for some years but I kept it as I thought I may use it one day.
There is no strap with it. Two of the slider knobs are missing - this is only cosmetic in appearance as the sliders still work perfectly. Apart from this there is no damage and nothing missing." eBay Link
"For sale is a Yamaha SHS-200 Keytar in good, fully working condition. This is a cool Digital FM keytar style synth from the '80s. Used vintage item, so it shows some signs of wear, but nothing particularly note-worthy. The strap is missing, but easily replaced." eBay Link
"I don’t want to part with this baby but I have to. I am going to miss it. I desperately need a new phone! Here is my unmolested Yamaha SHS-10 Keytar and Midi Controller for auction. This unit is very popular with the modding community. It can be modded in many ways adding switches and knobs if you have the knowledge on how to do so. It is also a very affordable midi controller. I have never used that feature. The device was in nearly perfect condition with minimal scratches. Then, during my recent move it was dropped and a piece broke off at the bottom where the strap connects. I didn’t want to repair it in case anyone wants to take it apart and repair it later. If I glued it, it might be harder to take apart for modding. As you can see the condition is still overall very good. It is tested and it does work fine. I hope she finds a nice home and wouldn't mind if someone has a good time modding it giving it new life. And I will always miss the demo song – Last Christmas by Wham (odd choice don’t you think?), which I learned to play every note of every instrument by ear using the demo!" eBay Link
"Wow! Such a great piece of gear. The AX synth is breathtaking. Try out the wicked guitar sounds or screaming lead synth sounds and much more. The AX synth can also be hooked up to the computer via usb to make your own sounds with the patch editor. The sound engine is absolutely amazing.
This AX synth was used in my smoke-free studio and never gigged with. I took great care of it and it works perfectly.
I'm sad to see it go, but I just need the money for the holidays. I hope someone can have some great fun with it though.
It comes with a power cable and will be packaged very well to ensure it arrives safely. " eBay Link
