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.

EchoFix kit is sonic magic

My RE-201 was a wonderfully clean unit when purchased but was never very usable because of the original pinch roller in particular. The replacement with the EchoFix green roller and a new tape has turned it into the quietest and sweetest sounding unit in my signal path. Unreal! Thank you so much for doing what you do, Shane!

Great Service Kit for the Space Echo

This kit really improved my unit.New green felts,new tape-feed-bearing and a green pinch roller with a bearing inside,so theres no need for grease anymore-Also less wear at the shaft.

The new roller comes with his own black metal cap which looks great and a new screw.

I could choose between changing the complete tension spring or just the felts on the old one.

Instructions on the page were very helpful.

Tapes are highest quality and the sound is clear,clean and precise.

Thank you so much!
