Roland SH-3 Analog Synthesizer

via this auction

"The sh3-a does indeed have the infamous bob moog designed 24db ladder filter. It creates a strange juxtaposition as the roland oscillators are kind of bare and gritty but run through the milky moog masterpiece it's tamed in a way that I find very pleasing. This is a monophonic, single oscillator synth but with its unique almost organ like devide down architecture you can subdivide the oscillator to have different "feet" and wave shapes!!! So this particular example of the sh3-a has seen much love over the years so don't expect a museum ready piece. It's been. Played and enjoyed for years and I k ow it's got many more years left in her. A few dings, scratches and rust spots here and there but all sounds and parameters function as they should including the famous sample and hold hence the S H... that said, a few pots and sliders can be a bit noisy and changing wave shapes per get can be a bit fiddly. Takes a few wigglea from time to time.

While selecting a sec shape on the subdivided feet you have to kind of fiddle about with the knobs for it to behave. Other than that and the aforementioned dings and what nots, she's good to go!!! Watch a few you tube vids and start to imagine where this beast with fit to plump and warm your kit!! "
