This unit has the early preamps that sound particularly sweet, especially with guitar – both preamp and reverb sound are different with these. This is the same spec as the one that Dan and Mick went so crazy over on That Pedal Show – they now have one of our machines for their studio.

Our engineer believes this machine is from a transition period when Roland were switching over from early preamps to the later design. We've installed an early preamp board in this machine and it is now sounding superb.

The chassis is from an RE-200 with the older style pinchwheel arm and we have had to file out the holes of the solenoid to set the correct tension.

It has had a motor service, LED mod, new clear tape cover and new VU meter.

A great example of the mighty Space Echo, for sale serviced and in excellent working order. Sounding great and running very well following a full service by our tape echo specialists with new parts fitted as required.

NOTE: This unit is already serviced and will ship once voltage is changed (included in the price). Estimate is 10 days from purchase.

Heads in excellent condition.

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: Limited stocks of our replacement loops are available now. 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). 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.

Some crackle is always possible from pots/switches when not used for a while – this can be cleared with use.


Superb with minimal signs of age or wear to the face. The tolex is very clean with only minor wear. There are patches of oxidation to the rear flap and case hardware. Internally, this unit is very clean with only the most minor oxidation patches to the chromed surfaces and metal areas. Please see photos or get in touch if you require more information on condition.
