In Australia they are listed at:-

RE-2 - $399 = $299us

RE202 - $679 = $508us

Around that probably?

Think I saw that amount as well. Boss making the RE-202 is actually a (first world) problem for me. Now that there are TWO cool pedals it makes me have to choose one, which I don't want to do. :fp:

Edit: who am I kidding? After two youtube videos I quickly succumbed to gas and have already pre-ordered the RE-202. :jacked:

In the UK so ymmv, but looks like the RE-2 is going to be £193 and the 202 is £308, so a little cheaper than the Volante

More I'm looking else where, the more that seems like an outlier though. Wonder if Roland might get them to bump that up, so could be worth getting an order in now.

I just preordered the 202 from CME for $400, with an estimated ship date of May 16. While that’s a lot of money for a Boss pedal, it’s a helluva lot less than what the originals are selling for these days, and there’s extra features and no maintenance. I’m terrible at predicting this kind of thing, but part of me wonders if this is one of those pedals that will end up being worth a fortune at some point. (Not that I’m buying it for that reason, the thought just crossed my mind.)
The cool thing about fretless is you can hit a note...and then renegotiate.

Anyone see a price point on either of these? Curious where they’ll sit in the line up. They do sound great! First the DL4mk2 and now these two. Got some thinking to do

Yeah I've ordered a 202. I've wanted a 201 for the longest time and I'm sure this is the closest thing I can ever hope to get to it, without all the hassle that implies.

Man, fuck you Boss. And here I was all set on my little mini board.

And honestly I just love looking at this thing. It looks AWESOME.

Also this may be a dumb question, but do the different tape heads correspond to specific subdivisions? I imagine the answer is yes but I haven't seen it explained anywhere specifically.

Essentially, yes. The modes turn on and off combinations of the sequential playback heads, giving you different rhythmic options.
