Excellent working order. Simpler than the 201/301/501 models, this has three replay heads, switchable between single or repeat echoes, and of course varispeed for accurate tempo-matching. Self-oscillation and dub-tastic effects are easily-coaxed from this machine.
From our Introduction to Roland Echoes:
“…again no Reverb or EQ. Similar head options to the 101, but different head spacing means the delays are not identical; but… on top of that most of the electronics inside are different from the 101/201 as well, so 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 to these machines soon…”
This RE-150 is for sale serviced and fitted with a new tape. Working well and sounding like a good Space Echo should.
Guaranteed to give reliable service.

In very good cosmetic condition – has some oxidation marks across the face but knobs, sockets etc are excellent and overall it presents very well. The case has just few noticeable scuffs or marks to the black tolex.
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.
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.
