PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

Excellent cosmetic condition and superb working order following a full service with our echo specialist.

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. See all our tape and disc echo units here

RE-301 Chorus Echo one sounds great and is working perfectly; it’s increasingly difficult to find any Roland Echoes as clean 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.

100v machine – see below for more information about voltage.

Face has only very minor scuffs and marks which are barely noticeable. Tolex is in excellent condition and the internal surfaces are astonishingly-clean – we seldom see one as good as this. The heads are in excellent condition showing low wear. Present, but not pictured, is the original Japanese owner’s manual.

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.

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.

  • This is a 100v Japanese model and will run fine on North American mains 115/120v without a transformer (we run all our tests using 120v power); however, a step-down transformer is recommended for extended use.
  • 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.
