Roland SH-3A Vintage Analog Synthesizer w/ Hard Case

via this auction

"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."

If you look at the oscillator section on the bottom left, you will see sliders marked 32' down to 2', and you will see switches above each for the waveshape. The sliders allow you to bring in as much of each in the oscillator section as you want, similar to drawbars on an organ. In this vein, the SH-3A was both and additive and subtractive synth - additive in its oscillator section, and subtractive with it's filter.
