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.

Reborn

I was initially unsure if I could repair it myself since I'm not good at tinkering with machines, but somehow, I managed to do it.

It took some time, but I was able to repair it while following the instructions. When I turned it on and heard the sound, it underwent a remarkable transformation, sounding just like brand new. Perhaps it's because of the high quality of the tape, but it seems like I'll be using this machine more frequently from now on.

Simply the best.

Doesn't get any better than this. Parts are superb! The only tape you should even be thinking of putting in your space echo.

Great service and parts from the other side of the world.

I have been trying for years get someone in the UK to service my RE-201. There are companies which offer a service but are always fully booked - in my case for eight years !

An electronics Tech in France mentioned yourselves, I ordered the necessary parts and now my unit,

(which used to belong to Dave Gilmour of Pink Floyd), keeps repeating itself wonderfully !

Thank you.

Fab repair kit!

Used on my RE-201 which has needed a service for years now, watched a few videos and bought this kit and got it working myself. Saved a bunch on repair costs, thank you!
