Huge Difference

By the way, I put your tapes in three of my echo units over the weekend. A Klemt Echolette, a Copicat and the Dynacord Echocord. It has made a tremendous difference to them all, especially the Echolette which was very noisy before and is now sounding fantastic. The Dynacord had a German tape in it from the person I bought it from and it was sounding quite good anyway but your tape has made a difference. I can’t remember what type of tape was in the Copicat before but the difference in it is really great. Quite amazing actually. It sounds like a brand new machine. I’m really “over the moon” about all of that. Your tapes have made such a huge difference.

Don't Go Where Anywhere Else But Echo Fix

I bought a RE 301 and since this unit wasn’t used for many years it decided to replace a few parts.

I shopped randomly on eBay and got some parts from EchoFix and some from other vendors.

When I got the tape for my unit ( from another vendor) I noticed the sound was dull and the tape wobbled at the joint.

Since all the parts from EchoFix where awesome I decided to contact them and after a few mails we found out that the tape from the other vendor was NOT correct.

I ordered new tape, this time from EchoFix, popped it in and clean/clear/wobble free delay had returned.

My advice is don’t go anywhere else but EchoFix! I basically threw away 20 bucks.

The Real Deal

I have a Roland RE 201 Space Echo unit that I bought from the original owner, the guy took really good care of the unit as it’s like NOS perfect!

I used it for a couple of years and then I noticed the tape sound had lots of warble and hiss. So I purchased a replacement tape from a guy here in the Los Angeles area.

I replaced the tape with the new one and it sounded way better but not perfect like it did when I bought the unit. I cleaned the heads and pinch roller and even demagnetized it but really didn’t do that much?

I went online and found Echo Fix “Bingo” this guy has everything to fix or rebuild your Roland Space Echo. I ordered the 6 pack of his Tape for the Roland Space Echo and I noticed right away the fidelity and clarity came back to my unit. The Tape that Shane uses is the real deal!! I’m still on the first tape and it been six months and the unit still sounds like the day I installed it.

Thanks, Shane, you're the guy that I will always go to for my Roland Space Echo needs!

Cheers mate,

Unreservedly Recommend

I would recommend EchoFix unreservedly as perhaps the only company in the world now selling high quality replacement parts for the Roland series of Space Echo tape delay units.

I had sourced various tapes and pinch rollers from EBAY sellers more conveniently located to the UK, only to waste my money.

Any web search will show EchoFix as presenting the most professional looking web site with the most comprehensive selection of parts, most of which are not NOS but new parts manufactured to the exact requirements of the old Roland machines.

After a frustrating experience of fitting odd parts from other sellers, only to have the performance of the machines I was working on get worse, I contacted Shane at EchoFix. He was extremely helpful and gave me solid advice on what was needed to get these machines working again. I ordered and fitted two EchoFix maintenance kits for the two machines I was working on and soon had them working perfectly.

My experience is that the Space Echo mechanisms do seem to be very sensitive to the type of tape being used and other tape loops, which may look similar, simply don’t perform as well as the loops from EchoFix.

Machine sounds Better Than Ever

I’ve had an RE-201 for several years now, but it began to develop excess wow and flutter, and the tape would jam on occasion. I found EchoFix’s website and purchased the RE-201 service kit, which comes with a new pinch roller, bearings, felts and two new tapes. The RE-201 used different sized bearings and felts in different revisions, but all sizes are provided to make sure you get the correct size for your machine.

The install instructions were very easily to follow and the whole process didn’t take long, and my machine now sounds better than ever. The quality of the tape supplied with the kit is far superior to what I had been using – the tape really makes a difference. The machine’s original pinch roller was worn and uneven (as can be expected with many years of use), which was causing a lot of the problems. The new roller feeds the tape smoothly, keeping a consistent speed over the tape heads. Finally, the new bearing and felts keep everything running smoothly and cleanly. Everything is now running perfectly.

For those who have an RE-201, I highly recommend purchasing this kit to restore your machine – it really is worth it.
