Roland SH-101 Repairs

A customer brought in a rather sick Roland SH-101. Apparently it had been dropped by a roadie. It had suffered a broken pitch-bender and several of the rotary potentiometers had been destroyed. It also had a strange issue with “weirdness” (as described by the client) . I was able to source the potentiometers but not the pitch-bend unit, so I had to come up with a temporary solution. The fix involved guitar strings, the long story short is that the string acted as a way of fastening the unit back together. It actually works very well, I’m not sure how long it will hold up under duress, but hopefully long enough until I can source a replacement unit. Seems like they are almost impossible to get these days.
