Roland Tape Echo Instruction Sheets

A couple of years ago, a customer asked us if we had any replacement instructions in English for his Japanese machine – as a result we created our Soundgas replacement instructions.

We’ve printed them onto thick, laminated paper and you can buy them from this listing here. Or you can download them for free by clicking on the images below (they will take you to high res 12 mega pixel version):

We also have (courtesy of Roland spares specialist Echo Fix) reproduction RE-201 tape replacement instruction stickers for those of you who don’t speak Japanese – this is the silver sticker next to the tape transport. These are not listed for sale but if you want one let us know and we’ll see what we can do (definitely happy to send them out to the UK, and for the rest of the world to add one for free if you are buying anything else).


Thanks for reading. This post is one of a series on Roland tape echoes that we are compiling into an online resource for tape delay fans and users. Other instalments include tips and tricks to get the best out of your machine, talking about reliability of tape echoes, how to choose the right tape delay, care and maintenance of your tape echo – find them all here.
