PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

Very rare example of a virtually mint RE-150. Beautiful.

100v Japanese model. Step-down transformer included for UK/EU customers, or voltage can be swtiched to 120 or 240v. See below for full voltage info.

Simpler than the 201/301/501 models, the 150 has three replay heads, switchable between single or repeat echoes, and of course varispeed for accurate tempo-matching. But… the RE-150 is actually quite a different machine to the RE-101/201 – most of the electronics inside are different and the end result is machine that does something different sonically. That “something” we like very much (magic with beats, and when slightly overdriven generally) and we’ll be devoting a whole page of our Roland Echo pages to these machines soon…

This RE-150 is for sale serviced and fitted with a new tape. Excellent working order throughout. Guaranteed to give reliable service.

CONDITION: Very near mint. The face has no blemishes to the decals and the only signs of age are some scratches around the input jacks. The tolex is very clean with no notable signs of wear. The internal surfaces are superb, there is no oxidation on the chromed surfaces. It comes complete with original Japanese instruction sheet and tape changing sticker, the sticker can be swapped out for an English Soundgas one upon purchase. See photos for more information on cosmetic condition.

100v unit, the voltage can be switched upon purchase and will incur an additional cost – more information on voltage below.

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.

There are no crackly pots or noisy switch issues, though some crackle may develop when it’s not been used for a while – this can usually be rectified by repeated turns of the pot.

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 (outside the UK) with a valid VAT Number.

 

  • 100v Japanese model
  • We can switch the internal transformer for a 120 or 240v one – the charge for this will be £40.
  • If you want to keep this all original then for UK/ EU customers (220/240v supplies) we will supply a high quality step-down transformer free of charge with your purchase – let us know if this is not required.
  • On North American mains (115/120v supplies) this unit will run without a transformer (we run all our tests using 120v power); however, a step-down transformer is recommended for extended use – we recommend these.
  • We do not recommend using cheap generic Chinese mains transformers – please ask if you have any questions about powering this unit.
