I picked up a Yammy SHS-10 at a garage sale a couple of weeks ago. It cost me $2. Everuthing works OK, although the battery door is missing. I have it on my desktop, and use it as a MIDI controller, although it's fun to just switch it on and play, and it takes a lot less room than our Casio CTK-601. Sounds cool thru my guitar amp too, and is more playable on a strap than I thought it would be. First thing I did after buying it, however, was I went to the Yamaha XG site, try this link, http://www2.yamaha.co.jp/manual/english/menu_f.html and (after upgrading to Adobe Acrobat reader v. 4.0, with japanese fonts), downloaded the manual in PDF format. It is in four languages, and helps with some of the less obvious features like MIDI channle re-assign. BTW, my SHS-10 is red. Don't recognize the demo tune it plays, but I think De knows it...

I bought it because my kx5 weighs a ton. Its got great MIDI specs but its keys are too small and not responsive enough for anything but whole notes. To bad Yamaha wasn't smart enough to put its MIDI specs and LED display in the KX5.

Ingo, the drums are FM like a lot of Portasounds of the era, plug it into a real synth and use it as a remote, better than a KX5 in some respects and a laugh live. cracking 2-quidsworth.

Wow, I found my SHS 10 this morning on a car boot sale in Cambridge. First I didn´t know what it was. But it is silverish and it just looked coooool! When I saw that it even has MIDI, I could not resist, i had to buy it! After some struggling with the lady who sold it, I got it got it for 2 quids!!!!

And it works! What an ancient sound! It remains me of may younger days!

Somebody who can send me a manual? When was it Build? Mine doesn´t have a drum-section!?

I love it and we will certainly never again separate!

I have been using it as a controller, but I open it, and disabled the rythm controls, because it was very easy to get those annoying patterns by accident. Very confortable to wear onstage, and once you get the hang of it the keys feel better. The portamento, sustain and vibrato(modulation) buttons are easy to control as is the pitch wheel and, yes almost everything transmits MIDI, cheap alternative( paid 29 dlls) to the Roland AX, or Yamaha KX5.
