ROLAND SH-09

I bough this monosynth in 2020 from an eBay seller. It was in working order but needed some work and a cleanup. It was yellowed from cigarette smoke and age. It allegedly was owned by the late great Andrew Weatherall, altough no proof of this was provided therefore I am skeptical.

The control knobs were like a bronze colour which I thought was odd. Most SH Roland synths of this era had silver coloured knob tops. It turned out that the protective plastic was never removed from new and had yellowed. Actually looks cool.
