Strymon Deco Tape Saturation & Doubletracker


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.




Sound Design:

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

Ins, Outs, Switches:

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
