At A Glance:

Strymon have taken 3 classic magnetic vintage delay types and gifted you the power to edit all aspects of them in real time and even thrown in a looper and old school spring reverb! Add some beautiful, warm, multi-head vintage echo vibes to your guitar or keys, instantly transporting even the most boring sound to a smoke filled studio in the 70’s.

Features We Love:

Vintage Tone and Feel

The Volante’s 3 echo settings (drum, tape and studio) are modelled on some classic studio delays of yesteryear and have been painstakingly recreated in digital form to give you an authentic experience but without the unwanted noise or technical issues common with vintage gear

Hands on Operation

Opting for a menu-less approach encourages the user to get down and tweak the pedal on the fly to get some real time precise adjustments or nice happy accidents, just like the real thing!

Old School Sound with some Modern Features.

Apart from the superior build quality and sound only available from Strymon, The Volante also features a Sound on Sound looper with reverse, pause, splice, and infinite repeat functions! As well as switchable buffered/true bypass switching, tap tempo, MIDI and expression pedal access.

Highlights:

  • Old school, authentic sounding sought after echo.
  • No menus here, hands on operation and manipulation is king!
  • Rock solid built, premium features one the way only Strymon can.

Specification

Three Magnetic Delay Types, Spring Reverb, Looper, and More.

Delivering truly exceptional sound quality and intuitive playability, Volante is designed to radically enhance the sonic expressiveness of your pedalboard. Featuring magnetic drum echo, tape echo, and reel-to-reel studio echo, Volante is a stereo multi-head delay that also offers a looper and vintage spring reverb, with powerful sound-sculpting controls for limitless sonic possibilities.

Vintage Vibe.

To capture the nuance and complexity of classic tape and drum echo machines, every last magnetic delay system attribute was relentlessly studied and faithfully recreated. From the sought-after natural saturation and soft clipping of magnetic media when driven hard, to hands-on real-time controls for mechanics, wear, head-spacing, and low cut, Volante instantly adds tons of vibe to your sound.

Multi-Head Maven.

Volante provides the full experience and sonic attributes of iconic multi-head echo machines. At the center of Volante’s control surface are four delay playback heads with individual feedback, panning, and level controls—delivering unlimited creative options right at your fingertips. All of this range allows the creation of complex rhythmic patterns as well as reverb-like atmospheric textures.

Three Vintage Echo Machines.

Drum Delay With Unprecedented Control.

Magnetic drum echoes are famous for their warmth and for their harmonically rich and saturated sounds. This is due in large part to the many tube stages present in the most sought-after units. There were tubes in the input buffer, the signal mixer, the record and playback amplifiers, the tone shaping circuit, and the output mixing circuit.

Every sonic aspect of our favorite drum echoes has been meticulously reproduced within Volante. Dial in any possible sound from the full range of the best vintage drum echo units in conditions ranging from fresh-from-factory to road-worn classic.

Classic Tape Echo Experience.

Volante gives you superbly crafted multi-head tape echoes, including the smooth tape saturation and the characteristic imperfections and nonlinearities inherent to the sound of those vintage machines.

Mechanical alignment, head wear, and tape crinkles, splices, and contaminants are all accounted for in Volante, giving you all the richness and complexity of a classic tape echo, with modern control and stability. Volante also allows you to recreate the irregular head spacing of some of the classic tape echo machines.

True Studio Tape Sound.

The professional reel-to-reel machines of the 50s and 60s were high-fidelity units built to accurately reproduce full-range audio signals. In the hands of creative engineers, these machines also doubled as some of the earliest studio effects, producing some of the fattest sounds imaginable.

Of Volante’s three magnetic echo types, the Studio Echo provides the cleanest sound, able to sustain the highest number of repeats with minimal degradation. Volante gives you a pristine studio delay with the full-bodied warmth and fidelity of reel-to-reel tape.

    Still on the learning curve & definitely not as easy to dial in as the El Capistan, but beats it hands down for the range of sounds available. It won?t bump the Capistan of your board but it will become its best mate.
