Re: Roland announce RE-20 'space echo'

i have a version which hold's the 1/4 in. tape in a round plastic sorta cassette, rather then having the tape laying open,which is the way most space echo's were.i don't use it often,but when i do it's great,none of the digital's in my studio, can sound like that,(it's very 60ish delay,and thats the way i use it)i have no idea if the lenth of tape that your's takes,makes a differance,but yes i just use ampeg,and it works .(i think most musicisn's,of the era of the tape echo's never changed tape,or at the best, very seldom) i would consider buying the re 20 and any other vintage gear of that era.fire it up,have some fun...Micmanus

Have you tried to plug it in? Maybe the power supply is dead.

I just found an original RE-201 on the street in front of my flat. The
tape is missing, but I guess I can throw in some 1/4 inch...
Its heavy, and I am sure, beside just trying it, I won't use it. But I
looked at ebay and there seems to be quite an interest in those kind of

Anybody interested? I have to check if it works at all, but the pots
"feel" very solid and fine at least...

I guess it was sitting in a cave for some years, but beside some dust it
looks fine...
