Roland's RE-201 Space Echo changed the musical landscape of the '70s, offering distinctive rhythmic echo sounds, a rich, warm character, and highly musical sonic quirks. The all-new Boss RE-202 delivers the same magic as the RE-201, but with loads of new performance features added, making it ideal for tone-explorers seeking a top-notch reverb and delay pedal.
Boss programmed the RE-202 to perfectly recreate the complex, unpredictable sounds of the RE-201. Thanks to its internal algorithms that emulate the RE-201's tape path, record/playback mechanism, preamp coloration, spring reverb character, and more, the RE-202 nails the coveted old-school echo tone without fail.
The RE-202 comes equipped with 12 different virtual tape head modes onboard, allowing users to choose between a wide variety of stellar echo sounds. Once a mode has been selected, users can use the onboard Tape Age and Variable controls to dial in anything from a brand-new Space Echo sound to the worn character of a well-loved vintage piece. From there, players can use the Saturation knob to give their signal a warmer, more compressed sound. And, with the expressive Wow & Flutter control, users can conjure up all the natural modulation characteristics that are essential to the legendary Space Echo sound.
For those looking for a little more musical unpredictability and old-school charm, the Repeat Rate and Intensity knobs allow players to create chaotic 'runaway' feedback effects and massive walls of sustaining reverb. Alternatively, for players who prefer a dryer sound, the RE-202 has both a clean setting with zero processing and a RE-201 preamp emulation that adds richness, depth, and warmth.
Complete with MIDI compatibility, the ability to save and recall presets, footswitch/expression pedal functionality, a 2-band EQ, and much more, the Boss RE-202 is the perfect pedal for players seeking an ultra-advanced reverb unit that delivers a wealth of exceptional reverb and delay tones.
