This synth sounds amazing. I have heard an ms20, Minimoog, 202 and an mks-80. So I know what nice synths sound like and the sh5 is surreal. With the bandpass res crancked up and everything evolving its alive.

what can i say, a really nice , good sounding monosynth. just invites to play around with, it's like an ms 20 but then the quality of sound and handling is so much more "professional " took me long time to get one , even had to swap part of a system 100m for it, still no regrets it's clear from ultrahigh ( the sound really dissapears, hardly any sidenoises!) to subsonic. it would also stand it's way in a nature class i presume, if it just wasn't such a nice musical ,playable instrument

I bought one this week in a shop in my town,Bologna Italy.First time I see one in my life,a big effort at 1400 euro but it's in perfect condition.To my ears it's a fantastic sounding synth,every movement of the controllers produce musically usable sounds with a very nice old 70' character,the filter is the first I listen to that can compete with my Sem1A. No doubt if you see one,buy it!!and write me your impressions

Hello, This is an excellent synth, without a doubt. There's only one note, it has no patch memory. The VCO's sound nice and raw, not in the MS20 way or the pro-one, but more mid range frequencies. With it's two filters; one with lpf,bpf,hpf the other with a fixed bandpass it creates beautiful sounds, the only thing similar (that i have: due to mid range frequencies) is the Xpander (not in bass). If you kind find it and check it out, buy it some pots may be scratchy but it's worth it. nice samples.

It'd be fantastic if it and others like it lasted for ever, cause they deserve to.
