Roland Space Echo RE-201
Probably the most famous tape echo of all time !
I think the RE-150 and RE-201 are the most organic sounding of the space echo range. They have transistors instead of opamps and the building of the elecronic circuits are different and that is a differents in sound.
3 play heads for 2 different echo setting inc. settings for combinations of the heads for triplet echo effects.
The other half of the selector knob is with the spring reverb. The last setting is spring reverb only.
The whole unit has been fully serviced.
There have been done two modifications :
1: the output of the echo is now fuller sounding
2: the feedback of the echo is now also fuller sounding
All electrolytic capacitors have been replaced for quality 105 degrees ones.
The faulty blue tantalum elco's also have been replaced.
All internal parameters have been calibrated. The bias trap has been set below 2Vrms like mentioned in the service manual.
All heads have been polished, demagnetised and cleaned with Isopropanol and are like new.
Alle heads have been set for the best highs (azimuth)

The wants have been replaced for new ones !
All potmeters have been washcleaned and dried with an aircompressor and are scratch free.
