In superb working order and excellent condition – serviced and guaranteed. 220/240v machine.
Roland Space and Chorus Echoes are amazing machines – and the RE-501/SRE-555 is their ultimate development in tape echoes; quieter than the others, but with the multi-head echo combinations, spring reverb, superb Roland chorus and Sound On Sound. The 555 is a Chorus Echo RE-501 in a rack case – we don’t see them very often and they are always quick to be snapped up.
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. Guaranteed to give reliable service and sound superb.
Heads in excellent condition.
Excellent cosmetic condition for its age with the face showing few signs of age and use. There are some minor scuffs and scrapes to the face, mainly around the edges and on the rack ears. These have been painted black so they will not show up when racked. The internal surfaces are very clean and show few signs of oxidation. See photos for more information on cosmetic condition.
This is an original 220/240v machine.
SERVICED & GUARANTEED:
One of the reasons our tape echoes are in such demand is due to the full service and set up to Roland factory spec that we do as standard. Our echo specialist has more than 20 years experience working on these machines, including touring with top artists. Your Roland will come to you in top operating condition following a full treatment with various new parts as required, including new tape. After that it will have been further tested by us, sent back to the engineer for a tweak if necessary and soak-tested over a period of days. Superb sound and reliability come as standard, and that’s another reason our machines move so quickly: unlike many vintage tape echoes out there, ours are guaranteed.
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.
