Strymon Deco Tape Saturation and Double Tracker Pedal

The journey of the Strymon Deco begins back in the early recording studios of the '50s and '60s. The introduction of reel-to-reel tape machines and the creative engineers that used them brought on some of the fattest tones possible. These early reel-to-reels were the first effect pedals they just wouldn’t have fit on your pedalboard!

From the incredible warmth and luscious tape saturation to the forgotten art of how to manipulate and toy with these machines, they are capable of creating a huge range of beautiful, distinctive, and enveloping sounds.

The Strymon Deco brings this original inspiration back, giving those vintage tape effects from the earliest recording studios, all in Strymon’s brilliantly pedalboard-friendly five knob format.

The Strymon Deco’s Tape Saturation smooths out your sound with familiar and delicious tape compression and saturation while fattening it with subtle tape-driven transparent overdrive. The Doubletracker provides the power to shift your sound in many ways, easily allowing you to achieve syrupy slapback tape echoes, psychedelic tape flanging, and gorgeous tape chorusing sounds.

  • True Bypass (electromechanical relay switching)
  • High quality, transparent Analog Buffered Bypass mode
  • 9V center negative DC power supply included, 250mA current draw
  • Strong and lightweight electroless nickel plated aluminum chassis
  • Designed and built in the USA
  • Detailed recreation of the mechanics and technology of two vintage studio reel-to-reel tape decks and their interactions
  • Nuanced sonic delivery of the classic saturation effects of the tape record/playback process
  • Simple and intuitive Lag Time knob allows for slapback delays, tape echoes, tape flanging, tape chorusing
  • Two Tape Saturation adjustment and tone shaping knobs: Saturation, Level
  • Three Doubletracker adjustment and tone shaping knobs: Lag Time, Blend, Wobble
  • Three Doubletracker blend types to tailor doubletracked sound: Sum, Invert, Bounce
  • Five “hidden” knobs for deep tone tweaking: High Trim, Low Trim, Auto-Flange Time, Wide Stereo Mode, +/- 3dB Boost/Cut
  • Press and hold studio-inspired Auto-Flange effect
  • High impedance mono input (internal jumper enables selectable TRS stereo input)
  • Stereo output
  • Two signal routing modes: Standard, Wide Stereo Mode
  • Individual Tape Saturation Bypass and Doubletracker Bypass footswitches
  • Expression pedal input allows the connection of either an expression pedal (for selectable control over any knob parameter), external tap pedal (for remote time control of Doubletracker), or Favorite switch (to save a Favorite preset)

    Awesome pedal, only had it a week so I haven't explored all the settings yet however I've used it in front of a fender princeton reverb and blackstar artisan 15 and it sounds great, it's made my fuzz, boost and overdrive sound sit in the mix better, it is expensive but you get what you pay for.
