The Deco gives you vintage tape effects from the earliest recording studios, right on your pedalboard. 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.
The Deco sets out to capture the kind of fun that can be had with a pair of reel-to-reel tape machines, from fattening tape saturation to the flanging, double-tracking and tape echo effects developed and used by studio engineers in the 1950s, ’60s and ’70s. This pedal doesn’t just promise to put a range of studio-only effects (and complex ones to set up at that) conveniently at the feet of guitarists — Strymon has also built in a ‘studio mode’, allowing the Deco to interface with a synth or recording gear at the appropriate levels.
The Deco is split into two halves, with a bypass switch for each. On the left, there’s tape saturation, with controls for output level and saturation. Strymon has designed the Deco to recreate not just the compression and third-order harmonic saturation effects that happen when recording to tape, but also the frequency-dependent nature of tape compression. Thanks to the pre-emphasis and de-emphasis EQ used in reel-to-reel tape machines (which boosts highs and lows on the way in and cuts them again on playback, in order to reduce hiss and compensate for various physical and mechanical phenomena), high-frequency transient peaks are flattenedWhy We Love Strymon
Damage Control was founded in 2004 with the release of their line of tube-driven effects pedals, which earned critical acclaim and became favorites among guitarists across the globe. In 2009 they began developing products under the Strymon name, and the rest is history! Strymon is known for their pursuit of building products with no compromises, that push the limits of technology in music, and redefine what is possible with music gear. Their innovations in single-purpose, multi-effect pedals in Reverb, Delay, and Modulation alone have changed and revolutionized the effects pedal market.
