Out Of Stock
Up for sale, a 1970's Roland RE-201 Space Echo in excellent condition. Freshly serviced by our techs here at Mike & Mike's Guitar Bar, this Space Echo works flawlessly and runs reliably on 117V USA power.

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. All tape heads were cleaned and everything runs exactly as it should with a low noise floor and lush, detailed repeats. A Japanese domestic market example (all text on the inner lid is in Japanese) with its serialized plaque noting 100v operation, this early example also has USA 117v transformer taps and has been converted for use in the USA.

All of the hardware is intact, and the faceplate is quite clean overall with silkscreen graphics that have a few white marks adjacent to the knobs to mark previous settings. All of the original knobs are intact with aluminum skirts. The latches have bright chrome plating with very light surface patina, and there's sparingly little wear on the black tolex. This Space Echo is a studio-worthy, fully functional example.
