Roland SRE-555 Chorus Echo for sale.

The RE-501 and SRE-555 were the final evolution of Roland's tape echo tech - high fidelity with fantastic chorus and sound on sound - read more about the different Roland models here. Overhauled and running well. This machine has been given our “standard” full overhaul, plus adjusted for self-oscillation (Roland removed it from this model). In addition to the basic service, recapping and set up, this includes:

  • One of our new tapes made from the same formula as Roland RT-1L,

  • 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),

  • Motor serviced or rebuilt as required

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


REPLACEMENT TAPES: We recently worked out what formula Roland used for RT-1L loops and published the information. Fitting any tapes other than those from us (or Echo Fix) may invalidate the warranty on our machines. Limited stocks of our replacement loops are available now. We’ve written more 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.

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 from pots/switches can occur when not used for longer periods of time – this can be cleared with use.


In excellent cosmetic condition, the face is very clean with only dings and scratching around the edges and rack ears. The case has some scuffing but presents well when racked. Internally, this unit is excellent with minimal oxidation to the chromed surfaces and metal areas. Please see photos or get in touch if you require more information on condition.

Voltage Information

Will be set up for either 120 or 240v operation before shipping (originally a 100v machine).
