i jjust talked on the phone to a bloke who is selling an re150 for £225 and a re501 for £300 <BR>he says the sound on sound isn't as good on the 501 compared to a 301 <BR> <BR>he is not willing to budge on the price, but says the re150 "looks brand new" <BR> <BR>they are advertised as mint condition <BR> <BR>any advice much welcome
Get the 150. <BR>the spring reverb isnt that great on the rolands anyway. unless youre going for that kind of sound.. <BR> <BR>If you want sound-on-sound for a more modest price look at a multivox tape echo. I have two <IMG SRC="http://www.interruptor.ch/cgi-bin/discu ... /happy.gif" ALT=":)"> The korg stage echos also have s-o-s, i believe.
For the price difference I would go for the 501. I own one and the unit sounds awesome. Also the 501s are the least noisey of the Roland Tape Delays. Here (in Australia), a good re501 can fetch up to $1400 (about 450 pounds). The 150 can get up to $600 (~ 200 pounds). <BR> <BR>Also most I've spoken to think that the sound on sound head of the 501 is in a more useful position than the 301, and allows for up to one second delay times. I have never used a 301 though. <BR>Cheers. John Foreplay
