PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

A Roland SPV-355 P/V Pitch-to-voltage unit for sale in very good condition, fully serviced and working.

Legendary piece of early 80s, high quality Roland Rack gear.

Fully serviced and calibrated by our synth tech to ensure it is in full working order.

Condition overall is very good. Usual scuffs to the rack ears and scratches to the casing; front face is clean; all the knobs and small slider caps have been replaced but it has been done well and the colour-coding maybe even helps with keeping track of the controls.

The internet can fill you in on anything you need to know about these superb pieces of kit – although if you’re looking at this then you probably have a pretty good idea of what they can do. But if you want a good tip then this extended version of Chris “Throbbing Gristle” Carter’s 2001 Sound on Sound article on the SPV-355 is a great resource with some very useful tips on how to push them far beyond what they were originally designed to do.

Price includes VAT at 20% (for sales in UK/EU) – buyers outside the EU please contact us for tax-free prices. VAT-free sales possible to businesses and individuals in the EU with a valid VAT Number.

It is a 100v Japanese model and will run fine on North American mains 115/120v without a transformer (we run all our tests using 120v power); however, a step-down transformer is recommended for extended use.
A step-down transformer is required in the UK/EU.
We do not recommend using cheap generic Chinese mains transformers and can supply a high quality UK-made unit if required.
