    I never expected to find brand new, never been used, not 1, but 2 vintage Roland RE-201 Space Echos. 1 unit is in the original plastic wrap (with the original box too) and the other is sealed in the box, unopened.

    If there is any interest in these units, please reply.

    Wow, that's a classic! And what a fantastic find - even unused ones, there must be a story there..

    The store imported them when they were new. This being Taiwan, it's possible that very few people realized what they are. I talked after the boss and he said he kept them in the case for I think he said almost 40 years. They look factory fresh. I'm considering buying both of them. I used them on the road and in the studio in the late 70s.

    As well it should! I'm seriously considering getting both, telling'll demoing one in a video, and selling the other, or maybe both.

    They really do sound sweet on vocals!
