How to Change the Tape Loop on a Roland Space Echo RE-201

A video we made showing you how to change the tape loop on a Roland Space Echo RE-201.

You’ll need a new loop: we only recommend Echo Fix replacement loops; please do not fit any other brand in our machines (it will invalidate the warranty). You can also read more about our investigations into tape for Roland echoes.

Also needed:

  • isopropyl alcohol
  • cotton buds
  • clean hands!
