great analog delay sounds
Nigel H., 01.05.2017
I bought this unit as i wanted a traditional feeling tape delay unit without the cost of buying a piece of vintage kit.

The Boss RE-20 Space Echo features both delay and reverb and gives you the ability to mix between both. Tweaking on the controls the delay can re-pitch which sounds amazing. The unit can be used as a DI effect or you can use on a bus if you choose, there are inputs and outputs for both. I like the feature where the light simulates the old school tape running, a nice touch. the unit is cable of producing some amazing feedback sounds.

The Boss RE-20 Space Echo is a solid built unit as you would expect from boss. I use this Boss RE-20 Space Echo in a home studio with a selection of synthesisers and drum machines so not generally running a guitar through it.

To finish, this is a fantastic delay pedal, capable of reproducing a wide array of delay effects. I would say this unit is good value for money.

TAPE-TASTIC!
LizzardMan, 24.06.2019
I picked up the space echo to use on my live bored as a guitar delay.
I was looking for something with an enticing character and old school sound the RE-20 has delivered hand over fist in those aspects. It has a well constructed case with two solid stomp boxes(One for I/O another for tap tempo) and an additional input for an expression pedal which I loved using to manipulate the delays. There is a sense of air and space when using this delay that can only usally be found at a higher price point.
However, I do feel that the combined reverb and delay settings can tend to wash out the direct signal when not in an Fx loop and in live environments the input gain can be sensitive depending on the pedals placement.

Overall with some time and experimentation this delay gives some enormous and rich delays with a unique sense of depth and flavour reminiscent of times gone.Loved it.

A good one for your twang
Jorma, 03.08.2013
I thought and planned for the echo machine a long time, finally deciding on this one after a lot of reading reviews and listening to advice. And it is good!

The sounds are great, the overall look&feel well designed, feels rugged and sturdy. So far the only thing to improve - that I can think of so far - is that if you use some of the "spacier" echoes in your solo or in an instrumental Shadows king of song, it would be good to be able to change to a "regular" reverb with a stomp of the box.

But now, with this baby, you'll need to bend down and select "reverb" separately, and maybe adjust the settings. I.e it will give you one nice reverb/echo sound at a time, which are all great as far as I'm, concerned, but for switching between a spacey vs. earthly reverb you'll need to go down and tweak with you hands.

But that's nit-picking probably. And it's proven to be great in gigs, too. Recommend!

Best roland re-201 emulation
16.06.2014
It sounds awsome! Just like an re-201 without the hiss. You can't sychronize it perfectly by tapping or by the rate knob but I guess that is part of the original re-201 sound. It's not just for guitar. It fits all kinds of instruments and it can make a lifeless digital synthesizer sound much more interesting.
