Product Description

NOTE: Voltage change and testing will be completed once this is purchased. It will ship within 10 working days.

It will also have a new silver tape change sticker added and new English instructions fitted in the lid.

We've taken an exceptional, clean later Space Echo and fitted the early preamp board. These machines 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.

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.

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: 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 don't have tape stock currently, but you can buy tried and tested replacement Roland tape loops from Echo Fix. These are the only tapes we recommend. 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.


In exceptional cosmetic condition with only minor signs of age or wear to the face (tiny marks and low level wear only). The tolex is very clean with only very minor dings around the corners. Internally, this unit is near mint with minimal oxidation to the chromed surfaces or metal areas. See photos for more information on cosmetic condition.

NOTE: It will have a new silver tape change sticker added and new English instructions fitted in the lid (this is was not done when the photos were taken).
