This is simply the second best bass synth in the world. next to the minimoog of course..

I say its the 2nd best roland synth ever, next to the sh5..

this thing can sound fat, 2 osc + a sub. this means, big fat bass. fast snappy envs, with the perfect shape for bass. If you can't afford this, i suggest the sh09, or the sh01. i dont like the CEM osc sh101, its not descrete so it doesnt glow or sound as warm as these oscs do.. forget the over priced sh101..

Had mine for a few weeks now.

Its a nice synth.

Very fast envelope, great for super tight tones. The tight filter responce coupled with tight envelopes gets you punchy and surgical tight bass tones! Think Sh-101, but with more presence and bass power. Rounder and warmer. VCOs are not the fattest- maybe its more to do with the VCF, but they get deep. Very growly, especially with the sub-oscillator in. Not so good at mid rangey bass like Moogs though, as you expect with a Roland OTA filter, but much tighter sounding than a MiniMoog, which tend to sound a bit soggy and syrupy

Resonance is not quite as overdriven and nice sounding as the SH-101 or Juno, but quite acidic in a 303 way. Does a nice 303 impression :)

If you want a deep dub bass and ozzie, tight RnB bass machine, this is it! Growly bass - this does it, creamy tweezy leads - easy. Filter in self-oscillation does a beefy and tight 909 style kick. Pretty limiting otherwise, but it will slot in nicely to any setup as a bass and lead machine! That's all mine does - punchy purry BASS.

Volume does drop as you increase resoannce, as does bass. But tune the filter to a deep frequency and it'll thump.

I`ve had my SH2 for about 6 years now after a couple of years of rough abuse [outdoor gigs etc.] its become a little worse for wear. Though this beast is as as solid as an ox

2 very phat stable oscilators and a sub osc, the warmest filter i`ve heard and a nice fast envelope generator

The sh2 is is a great bass machine and also does excelent brass, kick, organ, and funky pulsewitdh lead sounds

I initialy payed A$125 for mine and am going to spend at least twice that restoring cv-converting and rack-mounting the beast

The SH-2 has served me well since 1983...Its an excellent keyboard for lovely harsh noise and bass tones...I hardly ever use it now that I have a JP-8000.....but what a great piece the SH-2 is!!
