A friend has lent me this classic Roland SH101 synthesizer, if I can fix, I can borrow it, here goes……
Ahh so that’s what happens when the batteries are left are left in for ages,
the acid leaks out and starts to eat stuff,
and go on eating stuff for years including the circuit board and components, here I’ve made a small repair,
and made an ad hoc repair to the snapped off range control, this things had a rock and roll life…. My hopes were high, running on a Roland power supply, it kinda made farting noises and unplayable squelchy sounds, but alas this synth is toast, I guess I can’t fix everything…….vintage electronics do die!
