Original European 220v machine.
Sounding great and working very well following a full service by our tape echo specialist with various new parts as required, including new tape.
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.
CONDITION: Excellent overall. The face is showing only the most minor signs of age, with the knobs still having their (very clean) original plastic coverings. The case is very clean with minimal wear around the edges or sides. The metal sections of this unit are showing no noticeable oxidation. The box is in very good condition with some writing present. See photos for more information on cosmetic condition.

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.

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.
