Please Note: These items are shipped from Australia and Import duties / fees are the responsibility of the buyer. Make sure that you are familiar with your country's customs, taxes and importing laws.

Note: Our tape is NOT BASF LGR-50 or Mastering tape which is not suitable for these units. Even NOS Roland tape that has been stored correctly is not recommend as it has sticky shed syndrome and we are seeing repairs with this tape jammed in the mechanism. It will also dirty the heads with the shedding oxide.

Incorrect tape or old Roland Tape loops can cause low echo output, tape jamming, distorted echo output, little or no self oscillation, incorrect tone and excessive head wear.

Over 90% of the repairs that come in to our workshop are due to faulty tape loops that were made with incorrect tape or old Roland tape stock.

If your tape echo has had any of this tape installed previously we recommend cleaning the heads with 99% Isopropyl alcohol and in some cases your heads will need to be polished to remove the thin layer of baked on oxide. We have a youtube video on how to polish the heads.

Brought an old unit back to life

Picked up a non-functioning RE-201 and ordered this kit. I replaced all the caps on both boards (you will have to remove a few connections on the signal board to access the under side), and all the tape transport parts, polished the heads, installed new tape and we were in business. Sounds gorgeous!

I did not replace the transistors, trim pots or the bias coil, but the kit has the parts if you need them. The electrolytic capacitors in every RE-201 likely need replacement by now, and the tape transport update and service is a no brainer. Highly recommended.

Excellent Quality and Value

Every part is of best quality. All capacitors and transistors were tested before fitting and all were well within spec. Pinch roller is excellent and every other part perfect for the job. Loved the way everything is bagged up in separate ziplock bags to aid identification. I genuinely believe this to be the best kit currently available anywhere in the world.

Good savings and excellent value

If you are hoping to bring your Space Echo back to life, this is likely the kit for you. There are few issues it seems that would need further servicing after this overhaul. I got about half way through my servicing and it sounded like a totally different unit! The support is quick and insightful should you need it. I am more than pleased with Echo Fix in general and will be looking to use more of their products to increase my echo game.
