    Tape Echo: Echo Fix EF-X2 meets Vintage Roland RE-201… And Others – That Pedal Show

    53:48

    Welcome to That Pedal Show! Please subscribe to our channel and visit our store

    Life too short for long YouTube videos? Please see the ‘Interesting bits and go-to sections’ information below.

    In this episode Dan and I take a listen to the new-for-2019 Echo Fix EF-X2. It’s a modern take on Roland’s seminal RE-201 Space Echo, that uses real tape for the echo/delay effects. We also include some common modern delay pedals, both tape simulation and analog delays, to get an idea of how things compare. What do we think?

    Enjoy the episode!

    Roland RE-201 Space Echo tape echo/reverb

    6:02

    Jammin' with the Roland RE-201 Space Echo with a little bit of overdrive. Vintage Floyd-esque and Post Rock tones!

    RE-201 Space Echo units, which used the standard 1/4 tape of the open-reel variety, but made as one, continuous loop. It uses no reels of any kind; the tape is transported via a capstan drive. The tape loop is contained in a loose, constantly moving jumble in the tape chamber (also known as the tape tank) under a plastic panel which protects the tape and keeps it from getting tangled. The design resulted in lower levels of noise, wow, and flutter, and cut down on tape wear.[1] Replacement tapes were sold as well, named RT-1L.[2]

    There are several control dials on the device that alter such aspects as tape speed, repeat pattern (an 11-position rotary switch), one instrument and two microphone inputs, a single analog backlit VU meter for all three inputs, wet/dry mix for both echo and reverb, and intensity (number of repeats, in a sense; it actually reduces how much the erase/record head erases the tape), that can be adjusted to a user's liking; and bass/treble controls to EQ the sound of the repeats (not the dry signal), as well as dry and effected Echo output jacks with a switch for output setting (-10, -20, -35db levels.)

    Used as a delay/echo, the Roland RE-201 is said to produce an unpredictable delay that is warm and gritty sounding. It is also capable of producing a large variety of its own sound effects, even without an input signal (by turning the intensity control to maximum and allowing the unit to self-regenerate, or self-oscillate, while manipulating the tape speed and other controls).

    Original Roland RE-201 Space Echo vs. BOSS RE-20 - BOSS RE-20 vs Roland RE-201

    5:36

    The team in PMT Manchester compare an original 1974 RE-201 Roland Space Echo with the new BOSS RE-20 pedal.

    Which one do you think sounds better? How does the Boss RE-20 compare to a vintage, original Roland RE-201 Space Echo?

    The Boss RE-20 perfectly recreates the beautiful, analogue sound of the original Roland Space Echo Unit. By using BOSS exclusive COSM technology you get the same style delay and spring reverb sound in a pedal board friendly double stomp box unit.

    As you can see here, our team in Manchester show us how the Boss RE-20 sounds amazing when used with guitars AND keyboards or synths.

    Vintage Roland RE-501 = Five Head Tape Delay / Spring Coil Reverb / Digi Chorus

    2:38

    This is just a test video of my RE-501 that I'm selling in the Atlanta / Athens, GA area.

    Comes with extra NEW 1 meter Tape loop.

    When I originally purchased it I replaced the Tape Tension Spring.

    The tape in the tape bin now is still good (IMO).

    Overall cond is = Very Good to Very Good Plus.

    Currently functioning in my studio using balanced in and out. I don't have the remote foot switch to test those and I have never used the unbalanced in or outs.

    Roland RE-201 Space Echo Service

    10:00

    This is my second time preforming this service on a space echo so I'm not claiming to be a professional, but hopefully you can learn something from this video if you are trying to do the same thing.

    First off I bought my parts from EchoFix Australia. I got the Roland Tape Echo full service kit. here is the link...

    Please feel free to leave a comment if you have any questions and thanks for watching!

    Song in the background is just an improvised A minor add 9 arpeggio through a Juno 106 and into the space echo with filters, lfo, time and intensity being messed with to create the sound.

    Roland RE-501 Chorus Echo - Tape Delay - Demo

    14:33

    This is a quick demo / long clip of the Roland RE-501 to showcase the different sounds it can do because some people were really curious to hear it. To be clear: this isn't about playing, this is purely about the repeats and such, hence why I let chords ring out often and I'm just noodling a bit.

    I've been looking for this tape delay for such a long time and when I finally found it, I first wasn't really that happy with it, but further down that week, I sat down with it, and I found that it does a great shimmering tape delay sound with the bass rolled off a little and the treble pumped up. (kind of like an Echoplex EP-3)

    I had the RE-201 Space Echo as well and this thing is so much better than the RE-201, which I thought was rather overhyped. The sound of the RE-501 seems a little different and the reverb is a spring reverb, but seems to sound different than the RE-201's. The analog chorus is lovely as well.

    The combination of the EQ and all the effects is so huge, because the EQ sits last in the effected signal, effecting the chorus, the delay and the reverb. The combinations are endless.

    The entire clip is just my Fender '08 California Series Stratocaster with my 70ies MXR Dyna Comp Block Logo (Script innards) into the RE-501 (which is hooked up to my RJM Music Effects Gizmo MIDI True Bypass Looper) and into the rest of my rig (which you can find below).

    I start off with the clean sound and switch between my clean sound and the RE-501. You can hear the unit does not mess with your tone and does not add noise! This is definitely a piece of studio gear!

    The rest are various sounds using the different modes, the chorus, the reverb and the EQ. You can hear the character of the delay and how slowing down the motor affects the fidelity of the delay. Granted: I like the slowed down delays with the treble up so you accentuate it. The natural modulation created is just gorgeous, in my opinion.

    In the last bit of the video I add the Neunaber WET reverb and the modded vintage EHX Electric Mistress.

    Strymon Volante, Vintage Echorec, RE-201 Space Echo, Boonar and Belle Epoch Deluxe: That Pedal Show

    1:15:37

    Welcome to That Pedal Show! Please subscribe to our channel and visit our store

    Life too short for long YouTube videos? See the ’Interesting bits and go-to sections’ timings below.

    In this video we welcome perhaps the most anticipated pedal of 2019: the Strymon Volante. Strymon of course has enjoyed phenomenal success with its delay pedals to date, particularly the genre-defining TimeLine and much-loved El Capistan.
    The Volante adds a whole new voice to Strymon’s echo choir, namely the vintage, multi-head drum echo sound made famous by the Binson Echorec. It also does multi-head tape and studio tape delays too. Matters arising…
    • Does it sound like those old units? We have a couple for a quick comparison.
    • What about the best of the modern, pedal format versions of those effects? We pick two for comparison.
    • Should I replace my TimeLine or El Capistan?
    • And what else does it do?

    Please note: There have been many, many different kinds of tape and drum echoes over the years, and they pretty much all sound different, not least with the passage of time / different states of repair etc etc etc. With that in mind, we picked two such beasts that we had at our disposal, so please don’t be posting comments moaning about why we didn’t compare it with this, that or the other. Please.

    We hope you enjoy this episode…

    Vintage/Modern Tape Echo Shootout!

    8:02

    Today we have our good friend David Wheaton in the house, and David has recently become somewhat of a tape echo junkie - after purchasing a pristine and recently serviced Roland RE-201 from us, he dove into the rabbit hole of potential maintenance servicing, and discovered an Australian company that we aren't even familiar with, Echo Fix. They primarily specialize in repair and service of RE-201 and RE-301 units, but over the last few years have been developing their own tape echo unit, which they call the Echo Fix EF-X2! David recently accepted delivery of a EF-X2, so we figured we could do a little fun and very un-scientific shootout of the two since they're readily available to us! Take a look and let us know what you think!

    Fulltone Tube Tape Echo TTE

    7:23

    Buy Now:

    Fulltone Tube Tape Echo
    We have the Fulltone Tube Tape Echo in stock ! The Tube Tape Echo is designed to sound like the Market Electronics Tube Echoplex from the 60's, you know, the green one! Sweet and warm repeats with a subtle tape warble that adds a slight chorus effect for extra dimension. Fulltone has completely redesigned this classic unit to maintain a vintage tone without the extra AC noise and tape hiss!

    Why a Tape Echo you ask? Because no pedal or rackmount, analog or digital delay can reproduce the warm and natural saturation of a tape delay. If you have ever played a healthy Echoplex then you know what we are talking about.

    Is it noisy or unreliable? Older tape delays had a history of being unreliable and noisy. However, the Fulltone TTE is dead quiet. Full tone has reworked the electronics, the tape path, and the tape cartridge itself for smoother operation and less signal noise. They've also handwired the audio path and use custom made tape heads that will last a lifetime. The Tube Tape Echo will actually produce less noise along with higher quality repeats than most delay pedals. Best of all, you have 3 stereo modes to choose from for an extra wide echo.

    How much delay time? The FullTone TTE can produce anything from a quick slapback echo to over two full seconds of delay. Featuring a dual speed toggle switch, the user can choose between high and low speeds of operation, which also takes you from a warm vintage tone to a Hi-Fi sound.

    Is the Fulltone better than the Vintage Tape Delays?
    The AC motors found in vintage tape delays were inefficient and noisy. The Tube Tape Echo uses a servo-controlled hi-torque DC motor and a brushless DC cooling fan. The result is a quieter and more stable motor that is 1/4 the size. Not to mention the fact that these are still handmade in the USA and built to last longer than the original Echoplex!

    ROLAND SPACE ECHO RE-201 DEMO

    1:30

    Here is a quick demo of the vintage RE-201 Tape Delay. For those looking into buying the RE-201 here are some quick facts: tape generally lasts 100 hrs. $15 for tape replacement if you DIY. (it's easy). A little alcohol and a q-tip go a long way in reducing flutter among other problems. I had to take this unit in because the tape kept jamming, the guy also did a realignment of the heads, put on new tape, and fixed the input jack. All for 120 dollars. So there is your repair price range. Enjoy.

    Strymon El Capistan vs. Real Tape Delays: Roland RE-501 Chorus Echo

    9:34

    This is the first clip / video in the 'Strymon El Capistan vs. Real Tape Delays' series. I don't own an El Capistan myself, but a guy I know, Wouter (WtrPlyr), and I got together to set up this concept and compare some of the tape delays I have to the El Capistan, which is a tape delay modeler/emulator (a very nice one and the best out there, in stompbox format, that is).

    We used the DigiTech JamMan Stereo and recorded a dry loop every time and routed that through the El Capistan and the RE-501 - both of them were in a true bypass looper (RJM Music Effects Gizmo).

    You be the own judge of which one you prefer. I, personally, prefer the RE-501, which is one of my favorite tape delays. I prefer its natural modulation (I don't mean the Chorus, to be clear) and its reverbish character. I find the El Capistan to be a little muffled and dark, in comparison. But hey, that's my taste. I still really enjoy it and I might pick one up in the future.

    Vintage Roland Effects Showcase - Part 1

    4:53

    Vintage Roland Effects Showcase -- presented by ESTECHO

    In this video, we've wired up a bunch of old Roland units together, taking the outputs of a modified analog drum machine (the Roland PB-300), then piping them through various effects, including two classic tape delays, in order to create a trippy rhythm track.

    Part 1 is a description of the various devices used, with a bit of historical and technical information.

    Part 2 offers a performance with live rhythm track, to which we added bass, wah guitar (using the featured FT-2 Dynamic Filter) and synth.

    Part 2 is here:

    List of gear in this video:

    - Roland Space Echo RE-100 and RE-200 (precursors to the famous RE-101 and RE-201)
    - Roland PB-300 Drum Machine (modified for multiple outputs)
    - Roland AP-5 Phase Five
    - Ace Tone L-100 Phasor
    - Boss CE-1 Chorus Ensemble
    - Boss FT-2 Dynamic Filter
    - Boss OD-2 Turbo Overdrive

    Find out more about the PB-300 multiple output mod here:

    Binson Echorec vs Roland Space Echo

    18:20

    In this video I compare 3 Binson Echorecs with a Roland RE201 Space Echo.
    I played a Gretsch '57 RI Duo Jet through a Fender Vibroking.
    Recorded with a SM57 into a Neve 1073 to Protools. Just a little bit of reverb.

    The 4 units I compared are:

    0:35 Binson Echorec 2 T7E
    This unit has old tubes, bad heads and the transport is not very stable.
    4:31 Binson Echorec 2 T7E in good condition
    9:43 Binson Echorec P.E.603-T in good condition
    14:18 Roland RE-201 Space Echo in good condition

    All units have a higher noise level compared to modern day delays.

    I noticed on the P.E.603-T in particular, the input level is set too high which results in a distorted delay signal.

    T-Rex Replicator Analog Tape Echo Pedal | CME Gear Demo

    8:22

    Lars Dahl-Jorgensen, founder of T-Rex Engineering, stopped by the shop to show off their highly anticipated analog tape delay pedal, The Replicator ( Andrew, Alex, Shelby, and Joel put the pedal through the paces with a range of guitars: The Rock N Roll Relics Richards , a Fender Custom Shop Journeyman Relic Stratocaster ( and a one-of-a-kind Gibson L-7C Goldtop from 1949 ( Last but not least, pushing out all of these sweet tape echo tones is the Supro 1622RT Combo (

    The Replicator is T-Rex Engineering's take on the ultimate tape echo unit, complete with a motor, magnetic heads and a tape cartridge. The goal T-Rex set out to accomplish was to make a tape echo unit that could nail the sound quality of the old echo units, but surpass them in features. With the application of tap tempo, two playback heads for three output modes and a chorus mode that modulates the pitch of the echoes, we would say they nailed it.

    Strymon Volante Magnetic Drum & Tape Delay Pedal

    3:59

    Strymon's Volante ( emulates the sounds of three different types of magnetic delay effects. The dirtiest delay setting is a drum emulation like the Binson Echorec, then there is a tape delay that has the sounds of units like the Roland Space Echo RE-201, and the cleanest is a studio setting which emulates the types of delays made with reel to reel studio tape decks.

    There are four tape heads which can each have their volume, panning and feedback adjusted independently. The spacing of the heads can also be adjusted and is continuously variable through four settings. Delay times can be dialed in from 100ms to 4 seconds.

    To add warble and grit to your delays you can saturate the record head and tape or drum, or adjust how much the machine and tape or drum are worn out.

    The sound source for this video is the Behringer Deepmind 6 with all of its internal effects turned off, so the only effects you are hearing are the Volante.

    Call 877 909 0303 to order a Volante, or see it on our website here:

    Instrumental using Roland Space Echo RE-201 and RE-150

    1:39

    This is a short instrumental that a wrote while playing through a couple of space echos. The sound is a Fender Telecaster Deluxe with Lindy Fralin pickups into a Zvex Sho (just to split the signal), then one side went to a re-150 and UK Vox AC15TBX (panned left). The other side went into a re-201 and UK Vox AC30TBX (panned right).

    The RE-150 has a good bit more modulation which is interesting, but really adds some depth to the sound. It almost sounds like there is a synth pad in the background, but this is just one guitar recorded in one take. Very inspiring rig to play through!
