PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

Exceptional, near mint condition: from the interior and exterior condition, and in particular the felts and heads, this machine has clearly barely been used. SRE-555s in good condition are rare enough but this definitely something very unusual and special.

For sale in superb working order after a service with our tape specialist.

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.

Has just had a full service with our tape echo specialist. Guaranteed to give reliable service. Heads in excellent condition.

Price includes VAT at 20% (for sales in UK/EU) – buyers outside the EU please contact us for tax-free prices. VAT-free sales possible to businesses and individuals in the EU (outside the UK) with a valid VAT Number.

CONDITION:

Exceptionally clean. Near mint with just a couple of small dings and some minor wear to the rack handles.

VOLTAGE:

  • 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.

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.

We can also supply replacement instructions for all Roland echoes and tried and tested replacement Roland tape loops.
