Product Description

Modified Roland RE-150 Space Echo for sale.

"RE-201 Mod"? What?


Simpler than the 201/301/501 machines, the 150 usually has two replay heads, switchable between single or repeat echoes, however we discovered that we can add an extra head, plus an RE-101 selector, and upgrade the machine to have the same echo options as a 201.

This is the result, and now you have those truly wonderful RE-150 JFET preamps with the same echoo options as a 201. Happy days...

In addition to the mod this machine has been given our “standard” full overhaul which, in addition to the basic service, recapping and set up, includes:

  • One of our new tapes

  • One of our pinch rollers (more info to come about these, but essentially it's an original pinch roller with a new bearing and new rubber, time consuming to produce, but only the best will give the best long term performance).

  • Heads re-lapped to bring performance to better-than Roland factory spec - they are now more even and run at low head gain (so you have the maximum amount of headroom available).

  • Refurbished/rebuilt motor as needed.

  • Switchable voltage transformer added.


Every echo we sell is also tested by a musician (test equipment: their ears!) before shipping. Every one supplied with 12 months warranty and ongoing service support.




Note that we may have machines in a range of conditions (and prices) coming through - check our other listings or get in touch if this unit here isn’t the right one for you.




REPLACEMENT TAPES: Fitting any tapes other than those from us or Echo Fix will invalidate the warranty on our machines. We have sourced unused and dry-stored tape stock which is as close to original RT-1L tape formulation as possible (without conclusive confirmation from Roland themselves we cannot describe it as being an exact match) for their original RT-1L replacement loops and limited stocks of our replacement loops are available now. We’ve written a bit about our journeys in tape, which replacement loops to use in your Roland echo, not to mention the misinformation and poor quality tapes that seem to fill the internet. We may also have a very limited supply of sealed original NOS RT1-L tapes – see our store or get in touch.

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.
