Excellent working order. Serviced and supplied with our standard one year warranty; will also be set up for your voltage (see below).

We’re tape and disc echo specialists with many years’ experience working with and restoring these machines. Our team of engineers headed by BBC-trained Doctor Huw bring our tape delays up to (or better than) factory spec, and our testing ensures machines that have superb reliability and – most important – that they sound incredible. Guaranteed to give reliable service and sound superb.

  • We’ve supplied Roland and Boss with Space Echoes for exhibitions and shows.
  • Dan and Mick of That Pedal Show chose one of our RE-201s for their own studio collection.
  • The BBC hired six of our RE-201s for the Proms’ television performance of Daphne Oram’s ‘Still Point’.

We’ve serviced and supplied machines for many artists and bands including Hannah Peel, Red Hot Chili Peppers, Arctic Monkeys, Hainbach and Sunn O))).

NOTE: This unit is serviced and will ship once it passes final testing. Shipping estimate is 10 working days from purchase.

Simpler than the 201/301/501 machines, this has three replay heads, switchable between single or repeat echoes, and of course varispeed for accurate tempo-matching. Scroll down for more RE-150 info…

This machine has been given our “standard” full overhaul which, in addition to the basic service, recapping and set up, includes:

  • One of our new tapes
  • One of our pinch rollers (more info to come about these, but essentially it’s an original pinch roller with a new bearing and new rubber, time consuming to produce, but only the best will give the best long term performance)
  • Heads re-lapped to bring performance to better-than Roland factory spec – they are now more even and run at low head gain (so you have the maximum amount of headroom available)
  • Rebuilt motor

Every echo we sell is also tested by a musician (test equipment: their ears!) before shipping. Every one supplied with 12 months warranty and ongoing service support.

Note that we may have machines in a range of conditions (and prices) coming through – check our other listings or get in touch if this unit here isn’t the right one for you.

REPLACEMENT TAPES: Fitting any tapes other than those from us or Echo Fix will invalidate the warranty on our machines. We have sourced unused and dry-stored tape stock which is as close to original RT-1L tape formulation as possible (without conclusive confirmation from Roland themselves we cannot describe it as being an exact match) for their original RT-1L replacement loops and limited stocks of our replacement loops are available now. We’ve written a bit about our journeys in tape, which replacement loops to use in your Roland echo, not to mention the misinformation and poor quality tapes that seem to fill the internet. We may also have a very limited supply of sealed original NOS RT1-L tapes – see our store or get in touch.

There are currently no operational issues with this machine, but please be aware that these units require looking after and that regular use and maintenance are key to keeping this in good working order.

CONDITION: In very good cosmetic condition with some wear and signs of age to the face. The tolex is a little worn with some minor wear, this has been re-painted black. Internally, this unit is very clean with minimal oxidation. Please see photos or get in touch if you require more information on condition.

VOLTAGE INFORMATION: Will be set up for either 120 or 240v operation before shipping (originally a 100v machine).
