Choose your voltage – 100v Japanese machine that will be set up for either 240 or 120v operation as required. This will usually only delay shipping by two or three days.
CONDITION: Near mint condition – they are definitely not common looking like this. Only the most minor signs of age or use to the face. Case is very clean with minimal scuffing. Internal surfaces are excellent with no oxidation on the chromed areas. 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.
REPLACEMENT TAPES: We could (and indeed we have begun to) write a lot about our journeys in tape and the misinformation and poor quality tapes that seem to fill the internet. But for now you can buy tried and tested replacement Roland tape loops from us (they are supplied by Echofix). These are the only tapes we recommend for use in our machines. We may also have a very limited supply of sealed original NOS RT1-L tapes – see our store or get in touch.
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.
Some crackle is always possible from pots/switches when not used for a while – this can be cleared with use.
