1983 Roland RE-501

Here’s a vintage 1983 Roland RE-501 Chorus Echo effects unit. This particular example, serial number 268347, is in super clean 100% all original condition! The absolute pinnacle of Roland’s Space Echo technology, the RE-501 is essentially an enhanced RE-301 with a bunch of practical upgrades, rendering it the superior model, with both a professional in studio application and the preferred unit for live performance tape delay.

This one owner unit was originally purchased by a gentleman in Australia, and features a factory 220v transformer.

This example was recently cleaned, degaussed, and serviced for studio-ready use. It also includes a factory back-up tape in the clear cartridge visible in the tape loader corral.
