Red Roland SH-101 with MGS-1 Modgrip

"Rare Roland Red SH-101 with modulation grip. This synth is in good working condition with a few noisy controls. Please examine photos to assess physical condition. I would rate it good overall especially for a 30 year old synth. This also comes with an Ac adapter and the strap that goes with the modulation grip." eBay Link

Roland SH-101 with MGS-1 Modgrip

"Unit is in excellent condition. Please see photos for cosmetic details. Comprehensive testing demonstrated that batteries work perfectly, power works perfectly and all functions work perfectly, but two keys (25, 26) are unresponsive. This might just need some contact cleaner, but selling this one as it is." eBay Link

Roland SH-101 with MGS-1 Modgrip

"For sale is my Roland Sh101 mono synth in the rare RED color. This is an amazing keyboard, it is in MINT shape and fully functional. Looks fantastic. I recently brought it over to my tech and got a full clean up and calibration. It has the power bypass mod, so basically the power button always stays on but this ensures the synth stays in tune across all octaves. Most old Sh101s have failing power buttons that cause tuning issues and make them unplayable. The mod is easily reserved if needed. This synth is working perfectly. It includes the rare mod grip, and also has a nice stylish case." eBay Link

Roland SH-101 with MGS-1 Modgrip

"Up for sale is the classic ROLAND SH-101 monophonic analog synthesizer.

The unit appears to be working fine, all the keys and knobs and buttons working well to the best of my knowledge, including Sequencer and Arpeggio functions. I noticed the bender movement seems to be slightly stiff at times, which should do with some simple cleaning/servicing.

Cosmetically, the unit is in beautiful condition as you can see. There are some very minor wear and marks here and there, but nothing major at all. There is a bit of corrosion inside the battery compartment as shown, but it worked fine with batteries as well as with my spare power supply. I'm including plenty of pictures so you can see exactly how the unit looks.

I'm including the rare Roland MGS-1 Modulation Grip!

Comes in an Original Roland Gig Bag, but please consider the bag as a free bonus because of its condition." eBay Link

Roland SH-101 with MGS-1 Modgrip

"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

Red Roland SH-101

"You Are bidding on a used red Roland SH-101 synthesizer.

This unit is fully functional. It does include the optional hand grip and a guitar strap. The power supply included is not the original one, but it’s a good one that is nice and quiet. No noise or hum. There are a few cosmetic scratches on the top. Also the transpose lever is missing. I believe it can be fixed pretty cheap. Pretty nice vintage unit and is a must have for the audio collector! " eBay Link

Roland SH-101

"Roland SH 101 in Excellent condition

Including hand grip/power supply and manual in great condition

This is the real deal for fat analog bass, leads and FX.

This synth has been at my studio for years and is in great condition.Sounds AMAZING!

It includes the hand grip ( very rare ) , original manual and a relevant power supply.It also can be used with batteries.A rare synth that will only increase in value as they don't make them like this anymore and have a very unique sound.

I guess if you are interested in buying this you are well aware of its capabilities.

The main audio output can be a bit crackly if the jack cable is moved around but otherwise the headphone output works fine also ( I use this ).

Paper tape was used above some of the sliders to remember settings which left some marks when removed but I cleaned it off no problem.I mention this as some of the photo's show the before and after.

I will be sad to see this synth go but I need the money to pay for my wedding.I often rent this out for 150 euro per day so will only sell it for its worth.

Paypal payment only.I will pack it up well for shipping.

Shipping costs quoted are just an estimate as I will calculate the exact shipping cost depending on the method and place of delivery required by the winning bidder.

Note - I also have a Kenton Pro CV gate controller and cables that work with this if you wanted to make an extra offer for that also after purchase.I did not add it to the listing as I use it for some of my other vintage synths but could sell it if interest shown.Mostly i just play all my synths live these days." eBay Link

Roland SH-101 with MGS-1 Modgrip

"Up for sale is the classic ROLAND SH-101 monophonic analog synthesizer.

The unit appears to be working fine, all the keys and knobs and buttons working well to the best of my knowledge. I noticed the VCF MOD slider wasn't making any changes to the sound somehow, and it might need some adjusting/servicing done as there is a bit of noise on some of the switches too. All other sliders seem fine.

Cosmetically, the unit is in nice condition as you can see. There are some minor wear and marks here and there, but nothing too major. The battery compartment is clean, worked fine with batteries as well as with a power supply.

I'm including the rare and working Roland MGS-1 Modulation Grip. The MGS-1 seems a bit loose and wobbly when you put it on, due to the loose screw holes on the back of the unit, which should do with some adjusting if not use as is.

Comes in a nice original Roland Gig Bag as shown." eBay Link
