Strymon does it again with an unbelievably accurate recreation of the vintage analog tape effects from the 50's and 60's in a pedalboard-friendly box. The tape saturation effect really fattens and sweetens your tone and is great as both an always-on sound or for exploring different tonalities across songs. Throw on the doubletracker and you have anything from pre-processed studio-tracked tightness to chickin' pickin' slapback to rich, spacious tape echo!

If you're looking for that sweet, high-quality studio sound for your live rig, this is your pedal!

From Cliff Gallup and Scotty Moore to Les Paul and Jeff Beck and beyond, all of those time-based tape effects are yours !!!

 

Tape: The First Effect

Our journey begins with 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 sounds imaginable. These early machines really were the first effect pedals—they just wouldn't have fit on your pedalboard!

From the inherent warmth and luscious tape saturation—to the forgotten art of how these machines were manipulated—they are capable of creating a huge range of beautiful, distinctive, and enveloping sounds.

Mid-Century Maverick.

Deco brings this original inspiration back, giving you these 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.
