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!
