Roland Model 101 Vintage Monophonic Synthesizer from 1975 SN 500971

via this auction

This one sold for $1000. It was sent in by the seller, but it was sold before I got to this post. I thought I would capture it on the site for posterity. :) If the sale falls through I'll put a new post up.

"Roland System 100 Model 101 Synthesizer from 1975. This is a true, vintage analogue synth that has a huge sound and vintage tone that simply isn't available in modern analogues. It has patch points along various points of the signal path that makes it a great companion to a modular system. I would frequently use it as a 3rd oscillator for my modular or use a Mutable Instruments Peaks for a snappier envelope than the built in one. It has patch points for CV and Gate and it responds to 1v/Oct, so you can control it with any standard MIDI to CV controller or from a modular without any conversion.

Lots of possibilities on this synth, much more than other vintage monosynths. Of course, you can pair it with the other components of the System 100 (Model 102, Model 104, etc.) system to add a second voice, sequencer and more.

The synth is fully functional. All the keys work, all the sliders and knobs work fine."
