Boss RE-202 Space Echo Digital Delay Pedal


Boss RE-202 Space Echo Digital Delay Pedal


A Masterpiece Returns in the Modern Era

Introduced in 1974, the Roland RE-201 Space Echo stands among the most legendary and sought-after effect units ever produced. This tape-based classic remained in production for over 14 straight years, and its distinctive rhythmic echo sounds, warm character, and highly playable sonic quirks still inspire musicians, producers, and audio mixers over four decades on.

Backed by intensive R&D and our latest innovations, the RE-202 faithfully delivers the authentic sound and behavior of the Space Echo like never before. Built by the company that designed the original, this advanced pedal captures the RE-201’s magic in flawless detail, from the magnetic tape and motor properties to the vibrant spring reverb and colorful preamp circuit. And to take things even further, we’ve expanded the vintage Space Echo experience with lots of new features tuned for today’s music.

Vintage Roland Space Echo features and then some

Though designed to package the classic Space Echo sound into a reliable, convenient, and much more affordable pedal, BOSS is aware of the demands today's guitarists have when outfitting their rigs. The RE-202 takes the best of classic digital delay sounds and combines them with contemporary performing and recording features for a vintage-yet-modern feel. Four user presets in the form of "Memories" make it easy to store your delays, with external MIDI expanding this to 127 total presets for even greater functionality. Want to experiment with "new" and "aged" tape modes? The RE-202's Tape button instantly swaps between these two options to find that perfect sound. And whenever you want to mix up your sound with some added warping and twisting, footswitch controls for each function allow for enhanced creativity and complete control over every aspect of your delay.
