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.
It’s in excellent condition and when done will have 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.

It 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.
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.
