A Roland RE-301 Chorus Echo for sale in very good cosmetic condition and superb working order following a service from 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.
This 301 sounds great and is working perfectly; it’s increasingly difficult to find any Roland Echoes in clean condition like 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: Face has some minor scratching across the finish, including a cluster of scratches below the Intensity and Repeat Rate knobs. Tolex is in excellent condition with very minor scratches and scuffs and the 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 Japanese but we can supply our replacement version in English if required – please ask. Please see detailed photos for more information on cosmetic condition.
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.
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.
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
We can't stop here, this is bat country! Our next auction (November 22nd) features some head-turning, show-stopping synths, however we also wanted to put the spotlight...
