Roland SRE-555 Chorus Echo Vintage 80's Chorus, Tape Echo & Spring Reverb - 240V

The SRE-555 is a nice piece of Roland history. It was the last tape echo ever produced by Roland in 1982, and the first to be designed into a rack mountable unit! 

It is an analogue tape echo, chorus and spring reverb which features three playback tape heads which can be used independently and in combination. There are also the additional effects circuits which can be switched in and out, such as the lush BBD chorus and the classic spring reverb. 

  • This unit has been used

  • This unit is in good physical condition. It shows some general wear form use and age like some nicks, scratches and scuffs. These are mostly on the top of the unit. The unit is missing the additional side panels which helped it fit properly into a a 4U rack space. Overall it is still a nice piece for a 41 year old piece. The tape echo mechanism is very clean and the heads are in great condition. 

  • This unit will ship with its original head cleaning kit and tape. We would not recommend using these as they are very old, they may have degraded. However they are still a cool little piece of Roland history. 

  • This unit has had a major service. It is sounding great! The service included using brand new parts from the reputable team at Echo Fix. It included:

    • Deep clean of the tape mechanism and tape bay areas. 

    • Deep clean of entire unit internal and external.

    • The heads have been cleaned and demagnetised.  

    • Brand new new pinch roller, tape roller bearing and tape has been installed. 

    • All switches and pots have been cleaned.

    • Unit has been set up and calibrated to factory specification. 

    • The unit has had a brand new power cable installed.
