Roland SH-1000 Rescue!

video by Jeremy Parker

Great video from new supporting member, Jeremy Parker.

"Here's an in-depth look at my latest restoration project, Roland's first synthesizer from 1973, the SH-1000. There's a little history on the synth and the formative years of the market, plenty of SH-1000 driven background music, a quick demo of the features/sound, the complete restoration and finally a little jam video at the end.

Here are some handy resources that I used for this project:
User manual / service manual:​
Serial number lookup:​
Roland R&D Center (including Google Maps view of museum):​
Vintage Synth Advertisements/Info:​
Everything Synth-related:​

Great history on Roland by Alex Ball:​
