BOSS RE-20: The Rebirth the Classic Roland Space Echo RE-201 - for only £129!

Great news for echo lovers! If you love the wonderful echo effects that bands like Radiohead, Yeah Yeah Yeahs, Pink Floyd and others use, now you can reproduce it too, with a new Boss pedal!

One of the most beloved echo effects ever made, the Roland RE-201 Space Echo, has been reborn as the BOSS RE-20 Twin Pedal! Roland and BOSS have recreated every sonic detail and nuance of the original...but for a fraction of what the vintage effect unit is sold for on Ebay!

The original Roland Space Echo RE-201 has been an essential tool for many artists over the years, from dub legend Lee Perry to Jonny Greenwood of Radiohead or Nick Zinner of Yeah Yeah Yeahs. But these days its increasingly harder (and more expensive) to get hold of an old Roland Space Echo; good quality tape replacements are hard to find; and it's difficult to find specialists who are able to service it. In short, it was about time Boss came up with the RE-20 - a faithful update on this most classic of effects units.

And now you can  hear some Boss RE-20 sound samples*! And yes...it sounds good. People who've tried the pedal and know the original say it sounds "99.99%" like the original Roland Space Echo, the only difference being that it has less buzzing.

Experience the legendary tape-echo sound of the Roland Space Echo RE-201, and get “lost in space” with this retro-modern marvel. The RE-20 offers some of the best reverb and delay sounds available in a compact pedal. Grab yourself one!


  • Amazing simulation of the famous Roland RE-201, with the spacious, analogue tone of the original Space Echo
  • Faithful modelling of the RE-201’s tape flutter and magnetic head sound saturation
  • Tap input pedal allows delay time to be set by foot
  • Longer delay time than the original RE-201
  • Control parameters such as REPEAT RATE, INTENSITY, and more via Expression pedal
  • MODE SELECTOR knob with 12 placements just likes the original Space Echo


  • (W)173 mm (D)158 mm(H)57 mm
  • Weight:1.2 kg

This pedal will be available in June 2007, but you can reserve yours now! ORDER NOW
