Roland Space and Chorus Echoes are amazing machines – and this 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. It 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.
This one sounds great and works superbly. It’s in good condition and has just had a full service with our tape echo specialist with various new parts as required; including new tape. Set up so it will go into self-oscillation. Ready to give reliable service. Guaranteed to sound as good as we say.
Heads in excellent condition.
The cosmetic condition is very good overall. The top of the case has scuffs and signs of age and there are a few scratches to the face and handles, but this unit will present very well when racked. Click on the photos to zoom in and see more shots.
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.
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.
