Nice restoration job there! :D I'm surprised I didn't notice this thread sooner.

The pic of the "synthersizer" label isn't working, can you put that up again? I'd like to see it. I get a kick out of misspelled labels. ;)

Yeah, it turned out better than I expected it to.
It wasn't cheap though :? , but it was worth it.
This synth is priceless to me, we've bonded :lol:

Btw, Jeff and his white synths always impress.

So far so good with the old SH.
The next thing I'd like to do is add either CV or MIDI or both to it.
I'm trying to find info on how to do this.
Has anyone here ever added MIDI/CV to one of these?

absa-friggin-lutly stellar job! (mods: how about some kind of 'hall of fame' for work like this?)
while jealous of your skills, i am elated to see any vintage gadget saved and renewed for many more years of use.

Thanks man! :D
I had a lot of help along the way.

My latest projects are a Clavinet C, & a Juno 106.
I'll post about those in the coming months...
