Up for sale, a 1980s Roland RE-301 Chorus Echo in exceptional condition and in perfect working order, complete with the original accessories and a pair of footswitches. This vintage tape echo adds sound-on-sound recording and Roland’s famous lush chorus effect to the platform of the RE-201 Space Echo. The RE-301 is extremely versatile, delivering a range of indispensable tape-driven delays and looping effects in tandem with Reverb and Chorus.
This unit works flawlessly, designed for use in the USA market with a 117v power transformer. All of the hardware is intact, and the faceplate is remarkably well-kept with clean silkscreen graphics on the brushed aluminum. All of the original aluminum skirted knobs are intact too. There's sparingly little wear on the black tolex, and the serial/model badge is intact on the back. This Space Echo is a studio-worthy, fully functional example.
The original two-button Roland FS-2 footswitch is included, enabling independent toggling of the Chorus and Echo effects. A variable speed footswitch is also included, for quick Echo speed changes without adjusting the Repeat Rate knob. A Nikken magnetic field sensor ensures the Space Echo is not in direct proximity to any materials that may affect the internal tape.
