The Roland RE-201 Space Echo should need no introduction if you've navigated to this page! Click here to see the Wikipedia page dealing with them.

This is a late version, which uses different cabinet to the early RE-201s which carried on the same cabinet as the very rare RE-200 with the larger lid.

Cosmetically, this vintage Roland RE-201 is one of the cleanest I have ever come across. Check the 'more pictures' link below to see more detail. I imported this directly from Japan, so the instructions on the inside of the lid are in Japanese, and the unit runs on 100 volts. A new stepdown transformer will be supplied with this unit to enable it to be used on local 240 volt mains power.

Moreover, electronically and mechanically, this one is in awesome condition. The heads, capstan, pinch roller and all other parts of the transport are in perfect condition. Internally, the unit is pristine and completely untouched. And the sound? GROUSE! These can be quite ordinary if worn, or if the alignments of the various heads are out, but this one sounds just like an RE-201 should - warm and organic.

The reverb is, of course, a spring reverb, and the 11-position switch lets you select a diverse combination of echos and reverb.
