PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

Stunning condition, plus superb working order following a service from our echo specialist.

The RE-301 is a great piece of kit: the multi-head echo combinations, Accutronics powered spring reverb, Roland chorus and the Sound On Sound feature all add up to a classic piece of studio gear. A fine example of this iconic machine; Brian Setzer’s favourite tape echo.

We’re putting together a load of Roland Echo resources and information – differences, manuals, tips, trick and tales – have a look.

100v Japanese model. Step-down transformer included for UK/EU customers. See below for more voltage info.

We’re tape and disc echo specialists with many years’ experience working with and restoring these machines. Our BBC-trained engineer brings our tape delays up to (or better than) factory spec and our testing ensures machines that have superb reliability and – most important – that they sound incredible. We guarantee our tape echoes will not disappoint.

This 301 sounds great and is working perfectly; it’s increasingly difficult to find any Roland Echoes as clean as this, especially the uncommon and highly-regarded 301. In top operating condition having just been serviced and calibrated for optimum performance including fitting a new tape. Ready to give reliable service.

Condition: Excellent throughout. Face has only the minor signs of age/use; tolex is clean; internal surfaces are very clean with no oxidation. The heads are in excellent condition showing low wear. Note that the instructions inside the lid are our own replacement English instructions. See photos for more information on cosmetic condition.

For sales in UK/EU the price will include VAT. VAT-free sales are possible to businesses and individuals in the EU (outside the UK) with a valid VAT Number – please get in touch if you wish to buy this way.

VOLTAGE INFORMATION

  • 100v Japanese model
  • For UK/ EU customers (220/240v supplies) we will supply a high quality step-down transformer free of charge with your purchase.
  • 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.

We can also supply replacement instructions for all Roland echoes and tried and tested replacement Roland tape loops.

We also have a very limited supply of sealed original NOS RT1-L tapes. 

Roland Space and Chorus Echoes are amazing machines – if you’re only going to have one tape echo, then this is the one (IMHO): the multi-head echo combinations together with a great spring reverb adds up to a classic piece of studio gear, the sound of which you’ve heard on countless records. It could be said that this machine is the sound of dub.

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
