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.

Fantastic service

I wouldn’t trust any other company with my various tape delays. I’ve had my friends try other tape loops for their space echos. Their units literally didn’t work until they tried echo fix tape. Pretty sure this company is on to something.

Professional service for Roland Space Echos

analogwizard provides professional service for all variations of the Roland Space Echos in Switzerland. We roughly get one unit per month for tape path service and we only use the replacement parts from Echofix. They are excellent quality and with the right skills and Lab equipment, you get the Space Echos back to work as expected :-)

Rescue came from down under

Dear team of Echo Fix, you have saved me. I own a RE-201 since 40 years and now I reactivated it because I wanted to write an article about the Space Echo for Amazona.de - Germany's leading online site for musical instruments and vintage gar. The first sound samples I made with the ancient band - just like Portishead ;) Because there wasn't much to hear of the treble and the distortion was a bit high, I ordered replacement tapes in UK. But they got stuck, the tape transport was blocked. Echo Fix was my last hope. Of course it takes some time until the tapes are in Germany with customs and bureaucracy. I installed the new tapes and it worked from the first moment on. I haven't used anything from the rest of the rescue kit. The tapes alone make the difference. It may be mainly due to the glue spots, which are much less fine in the competitor kit. There they want to rework their product now and they also gave me my money back. A very big thank you for your great work!
