First up is the RE-202. The RE-202 is a faithful-to-the-original recreation of the RE-201 that delivers the authentic sound and behavior of the Space Echo. The RE-201 brings magnetic tape and motor properties to its sound for that vintage feel while offering vibrant spring reverb and a colorful preamp circuit. The RE-202 also offers a three-head configuration plus an additional tape head for 12 unique echo combinations, and the ability to save and select 127 memories via external MIDI program change.

The RE-202 is available here for $399.99.

Then there’s the compact RE-2. The RE-2 is a more pedalboard-friendly footprint—realized version featuring the original three-head configuration and 11 different sound combinations, vintage RE-201 spring reverb sound with a modern stereo operation, and expandable control via external footswitches or an expression pedal.

The RE-2 is available here for $249.99.
