Over the years, Roland has created a significant number of products that have gone on to become legendary. One of the earliest examples is the Roland RE-201 Space Echo, a combination tape echo and reverb introduced in 1974.
The RE-201 was an engineering masterpiece. It featured a sophisticated tape-echo effect and a built-in spring reverb, with different sound variations selectable via 12 different operating modes.
If you’re looking for that classic Space Echo vibe, you’ll find every last drop in the RE-20. It’s a dead ringer for the sound of the RE-201, but without all the maintenance hassles of keeping up an original specimen. And since it’s a BOSS Twin Pedal, it fits on a pedalboard easily (something that would have been impossible to imagine in 1974!).
