Out Of Stock
Up for sale, a 1970's Roland RE-201 Space Echo in collector-grade condition, freshly serviced by our techs here at Mike & Mike's Guitar Bar, complete with the original packet of accessories. This Space Echo works flawlessly and runs reliably on USA power with the original 100V Japanese transformer. We can also install a 120V Mercury Magnetics transformer at the buyer's discretion for an additional charge.

One of the most popular and enduring tape echos of all time, the RE-201 has been used on countless stages and in studios worldwide, although perhaps its most prominent usage has been with Brian Setzer, where a Space Echo has been an indispensable part of his signal chain for decades. All tape heads were cleaned and everything runs exactly as it should with a low noise floor and lush, detailed repeats.

All of the hardware is intact, the faceplate is remarkably well-kept with clean silkscreen graphics and only a bit of light scuffing on the brushed aluminum and light patina on the input jacks. All of the original aluminum skirted knobs are intact too, many of which retain the (now yellowed) transparent factory protective plastic over the caps. The chrome latches and hinges show light surface patina, and there's sparingly little wear on the black tolex. This Space Echo is a studio-worthy, fully functional example.

The original packet of accessories is included, secured with thumbscrews above the tape compartment.
