Product Description

Exceptional Roland RE-301 Chorus Echo: this is one of the best we’ve heard in a long time. Serviced to the highest standard and supplied with 12 month 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))).

This machine is not only in excellent cosmetic condition but, according to our resident echo wizard Will, it’s one of the best he’s heard.

Guaranteed to be the best RE-301 you’ll find.

The RE-301 is a great piece of kit: the multi-head echo combinations, Accutronics spring reverb, Roland chorus and the Sound On Sound feature all add up to a classic piece of studio gear.

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.
New switchable voltage transformer installed – it will be set up for 120 or 220/240v mains before we ship.
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.

Note that we may have machines in a range of conditions (and prices) coming through – check our other listings or get in touch if this unit here isn’t the right one for you.

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.
