BOSS RE-202 Space Echo | The Next Generation of Space Echo


collapse expand iconDescription

The BOSS RE-202 Space Echo effects pedal recreates the iconic analog delay effect of the legendary Roland RE-201 Space Echo from the 1970s. With a full complement of delay modes and sonic textures instantly available at your feet, the RE-202 Space Echo opens up a world of creative possibilities for live performance and studio recording.

Twelve Delays Modes for Endless Inspiration

The RE-202 Space Echo provides twelve unique delay modes to suit any musical style, all with a signature analog warmth and depth. From slapback echo to long, hazy repeats, this pedal delivers lush, retro-sounding delays for guitar, bass, keys and beyond. The "echo" and "repeat" modes provide classic Space Echo tones, while the unique "warp" and "twist" modes manipulate repeats for experimental textures. With so many tones on tap, the RE-202 Space Echo is an endlessly inspiring tool for creative musicians.

Intuitive Controls for Quick Tweaking

Despite its vast sonic range, this effects pedal is designed to be simple and intuitive to operate. Familiar knobs control "repeat Rate", "intensity" and "echo volume" for quick adjustments, while four toggle switches select different delay modes, feedback levels and other parameters. With hands-on controls and no complicated menus to navigate, you can tweak the RE-202 Space Echo's tones on the fly for reactive and expressive playing.

Premium Analog Design for Authentic Tone

At the heart of the RE-202 Space Echo is an all-analog audio path that recreates the circuitry of the original RE-201 Space Echo. An analog BBD (bucket-brigade device) delay line generates lush, uncompressed repeats with a distinctive warmth and depth. All-analog filters and circuitry reproduce the tone and vibe of a vintage tape echo, bringing the RE-202 Space Echo to life with the same soul and attitude as the renowned classic that inspired it.

Rugged and Road-Ready

Like all BOSS pedals, the RE-202 Space Echo is built to perform and last. Its durable metal chassis provides lasting protection for the analog components inside, while the intuitive controls and rugged switches are designed to stand up to continuous use on stage. Powered by nine volts and ready to inspire at a moment's notice, the RE-202 Space Echo is the ultimate analog delay for gigging musicians.
