Roland RE-501 Chorus Echo
Roland RE-501 Chorus Echo:
The RE-501 was Roland's last (and best) tape echo. They simultaneously released a rackmount version of the RE-501 known as the SRE-555. The RE-501 uses Roland's free running tape system that minimizes wow and flutter and extends the life of the tape to more than 300 hours of use. The 501 is a studio oriented machine, with convenient balanced inputs and outputs. It also features spring reverb, an analog chorus, and sound on sound recording, much like the RE-301 before it.
