PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

A Roland RE-301 Chorus Echo for sale in very good condition and superb working order following a full service with our echo specialist.

We’re tape echo specialists and always have a good stock of vintage machines – see all our tape and disc echo units here

This one sounds amazing and is working perfectly; it’s increasingly difficult to find any Roland Echoes as nice as this, especially the less common 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. Our tech says its one of the best he’s ever heard.

Face has minor scuffs and marks. Tolex is in good condition, although it has some damage to the corners of the unit. The heads are in excellent condition showing low wear.

Roland Space and Chorus Echoes are amazing machines – and this model is a stunner: the multi-head echo combinations, a good 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.

It is a 120v model.

A step-down transformer is required in the UK/EU.

We do not recommend using cheap generic Chinese mains transformers and can supply a high quality UK-made unit if required.

We can supply replacement tapes for Roland and other vintage tape echoes – please get in touch for prices

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.

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.
