My Space Echo has excessive wow and flutter (warbling) what should I do?

This can be caused by a worn out Tape Loop, Pinch Roller, Felts and tape feed bearings. All of these are in the service kit we provide and in most cases a service kit fitted correctly will remedy the problem. Other causes could be worn out motor bearings etc so your motor could need rebuilding. These are the most common causes. Feel free to email me at info@echofix.com to discuss your issue so I can help you get your Roland Space Echo repaired and functioning correctly.

I have replaced my tape loop and my echo signal is low. What should I do?

You need to clean the tape heads and tape path with isopropyl alcohol. You will also need to
demagnetise the heads and tape path. Also make sure the tape is installed correctly around the correct guide poles. You may also need to polish the heads with a chrome or silver type polish then clean again with isopropyl acohol.
