You missed it!


An extraordinary find. A virtually unused original Space Echo, for sale complete with original box, accessories, manual, hang tag, cleaning kit, spare tape etc. Serviced and can be converted to the voltage of the buyer’s choice. 

Not only is this an extraordinary example, but it has the early preamps that sound particularly sweet, especially with guitar (the same spec as the one that Dan and Mick went so crazy over on That Pedal Show – they now have one of our machines for their studio).

Buy your 201 from the company who supplied Roland with Space Echoes for their ‘Cause And Effects’ show celebrating 40 years of Boss pedals – read more here.

Note that we usually have machines in a range of conditions (and prices) coming through – check our other listings or get in touch if you want to find the right one for you.

REPLACEMENT TAPES: We can supply tried and tested replacement Roland tape loops from us (they are supplied by Echofix). These are the only tapes we recommend for Roland echoes.
