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.

Fantastic
Kriztof, 09.04.2020
The most underrated yet fantastic delay on the market. Sounds exactly like an old Roland tape echo. Warm organic delay, wide variety of options yet easy to use. Tap tempo is great. Construction is like a tank. this pedal plays very well with fender & Vox amps, single coil & P90 equipped guitars.. I would give it 100 stars.
Zero cons.

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!

Good echo but, definitely not space echo
14.12.2016
I have purchased this little pedal because I didnt have money to buy the real thing. I was hoping it would just be a digital emulation of the real thing. It turns out it is not really. It is a nice little piece of kit however it really has a mind of its own and it doesnt have the right delay patterns as the real unit. I wanted to use this for reggae and dub pieces which the real unit does it perfectly where as this pedal doesnt really kick in where you want it to. If you just want something for the ambiance sort of echo this can do that well but if you want to control the patterns probably not.
