1970s Roland SH-3A Vintage Analog Synthesizer SN 493xxx

via this auction, also on Reverb

"Roland's first non-preset based synth, the SH-3A features two LFOs and is unique for offering five different footings with mixable waveforms, as well as both subtractive and additive synthesis. The single oscillator SH-3A has an incredible range of pure analog sounds used by the likes of Blondie and Vangelis, and with the transistorized ladder-filter, the SH-3A can achieve very Moog-like sounds.

All features of this vintage synth work as they should and the keyboard is remarkably clean. All of the original knobs and sliders are intact, barring the Release slider, and the graphics are well preserved. This particular SH-3A was produced for the Japanese market, indicated by the Roland badge with green Japanese text underneath.

The synth comes complete with the original latching lid."
