What we say:

At A Glance:

Let’s take it back to the vintage tape effects from the earliest recording studios with the sensational Strymon Deco! With the Tape Saturation side you can achieve warm and filling compressed overdrive as well as spanky slap back, screaming tape flanging and chorus style effects in the Double Tracker mode.

Features We Love:

Dual Old School FX

Each side of the Deco works independently of each other, so you can chose one or both tap effects depending on how vintage you want your new track to sound. Both have simple yet perfect editing knobs on the front as well as…

Hidden Features

Overall Rating 5/5 (5 reviews)

Wow this is so much more than an echo, its a double tracker, an old fashioned echo chamber, it has modulation and overdrive as well. Its so good and versatile that |I am even considering buying a second unit for my pedalboard. Easily the best pedal I have bought in a very long time
