Roland’s ultimate tape echo, in top operating condition following a full service by our tape echo specialist with various new parts as required, including new tape.
Guaranteed to give reliable service.
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. Check out our store or site for more tape delays and other vintage effects.
In perfect working order and it sounds fantastic: we have them calibrated to Roland factory spec, with the exception of the repeat intensity as Roland ‘improved’ them by removing self-oscillation of the 201 and 301 – this machine now self-oscillates beautifully.
Excellent condition overall. The face has only the most minor marks and signs of age; the heads and internal surfaces are clean; tolex has a few very minor dings and scuffs, most notably to the top corners, which have been touched up with paint. The heads are in excellent condition showing low wear. Click on the photos to zoom in and see more shots.
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, a good spring reverb, Roland chorus and the Sound On Sound feature all add up to a classic piece of studio gear.
This one sounds great and is in superb order: the echoes are good and clear, the chorus and spring reverb sound lush and have that evocative sound you’ve heard on countless records.
There are currently no operational issues with this machine, but please be aware that these units require some looking after and that regular use and maintenance are key to keeping this in good working order.
There are no crackly pots or noisy switch issues, though some crackle may develop when it’s not been used for a while – this can usually be rectified by repeated turns of the pot.
We cover just some of what it can do with a directory of videos for you to refer to. Given the flexibility of this box, we're...
