Roland SRE-555 maintenance

A Roland SRE-555 (Chorus Echo) arrived at the workshop. It powered on, but only the chorus was working. Upon further inspection I found the tape was mangled, the echo intensity set wrong and the reverb tank was completely trashed. The reverb tank had some interesting text written on the side as you can see in the picture, “manufactured by beautiful girls in milton, wis, under controlled atmosphere conditions” that gave us a chuckle. Anyway those tanks are no longer available but we’ve managed to find a suitable replacement.
