Product Description

Superb working order following our rigorous full overhaul by our echo tech expert. Supplied with one year warranty.

We’re tape and disc echo specialists with many years’ experience working with and restoring these machines. Our team of engineers see and restore more Space Echoes than anyone else on the planet and bring our machines up to (or better than) factory spec. Our rigorous testing regime ensures machines that not only sound incredible but are also as reliable as it’s possible. Guaranteed to be the best Space Echoes you’ll hear and give years of reliable service.

We’ve supplied Roland and Boss with Space Echoes for exhibitions and shows.
Dan and Mick of That Pedal Show chose one of our RE-201s for their studio collection.
The BBC hired six of our RE-201s for the Proms’ television performance of Daphne Oram’s ‘Still Point’.
We’ve serviced and supplied machines for many artists and bands including Hannah Peel, Red Hot Chili Peppers, Run The Jewels, Arctic Monkeys, Hainbach, Colleen, and Sunn O))).

DESCRIPTION
Unit is ready to ship following final testing. Shipping estimate is up to 10 days from purchase.

This is a 100/120v unit for N American use.

Simpler than the 201/301/501 machines, this has three replay heads, switchable between single or repeat echoes, and of course varispeed for accurate tempo-matching. But they sound different to all the other models thanks to their wonderful RE-150 JFET preamps. Scroll down for more RE-150 info.

Visit our in-depth Roland tape echo information pages now for everything you need to know about these machines.

This machine has been given the full Soundgas overhaul which, in addition to a ‘basic’ top service, recapping and set up, includes:

One of our new tapes
One of our pinch rollers – an original pinch roller with a new bearing and new rubber. Time consuming to produce, but only the best will give the best long term performance.
Heads are re-lapped to bring performance to better-than Roland factory spec.
Serviced/rebuilt motor as required.
Every machine is also tested by a musician using their ears as well as our techs using their ‘scopes (all our techs are also musicians) before shipping.

Every one is supplied with 12 months warranty and ongoing service support.

REPLACEMENT TAPES: Fitting any tapes other than those from us or Echo Fix will invalidate the warranty on our machines. We have sourced unused and dry-stored tape stock which is as close to original RT-1L tape formulation as possible (without conclusive confirmation from Roland themselves we cannot describe it as being an exact match) for their original RT-1L replacement loops and limited stocks of our replacement loops are available now. We’ve written a bit about our journeys in tape, which replacement loops to use in your Roland echo, not to mention the misinformation and poor quality tapes that seem to fill the internet. We may also have a very limited supply of sealed original NOS RT1-L tapes – see our store or get in touch.

There are currently no operational issues with this machine, but please be aware that these units require looking after and that regular use and maintenance are key to keeping this in good working order.

Condition

In very good cosmetic condition with minor signs of age. The case is clean with some wear. Internally this unit is excellent with minimal oxidation to the metal surfaces. Please see photos or get in touch if you require more information on condition.

Voltage Information

100v Japanese model - it will run 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.

Tax

For sales in UK the price will include 20% VAT. Buyers elsewhere may incur VAT or other local taxes on import.
