Because of the numerous requests regarding my favorite bugdet delays, I tried to figure out my top delays within the categories tape emulation, digital delay and analog delay. The order of the delays within the respective group or video is not a ranking, for I am unable to tell which of them I like best.
The Strymon El Capistan is a relatively pedalboard-friendly tape echo emulation. Actually, it is THE tape echo emulation that sets the standards for all other tape echo emulations. Continue reading “Strymon El Capistan”
This is a comparison of the Strymon Brigadier with the Source Audio Nemesis. The Source Audio Nemesis is, as well as the Brigadier, able to emulate numerous analog delay sounds. For it has about the same size, I decided to compare these two digital delays.
This is a comparison of the Strymon Brigadier with the Electro Harmonix Deluxe Memory Man. The Electro Harmonix Deluxe Memory Man is one of the brightest analog delays with a maximum delay time of up to 550ms. Therefore, I choose the medium setting of the Brigadier, which emulates an analog delay with two ICs. Additionally, I turned the tone pot a bit further to create a similar bright sound.
This is a comparison of the Ibanez AD9 and the Boss DM-2 with the Strymon Brigadier. The Ibanez AD9 and the Boss DM-2 are two of the first analog delays. They provide a maximum delay time of about 300ms and a unique kind of oscillation. For this comparison, choose the short setting for the Brigadier, because, it emulates an analog delay with one IC. Thereby, the Brigadier gets close to the sound of the AD9 and the DM-2.
Strymon calls the NightSky a time-warped reverberator which includes more functions than a usual reberb pedal. The new type of setting options is also innovative and is an invitation for experimentation.
This is the first part of a two-part review of the Strymon NightSky. In the first part you will learn all about the construction and the extensive functions of the NightSky, while the second part will be dedicated to the sound of this extraordinary pedal.

This is a comparison of the Strymon Brigadier with the DOD Rubberneck. I think, the DOD Rubberneck sets the standards regarding analog delay pedals. Therefore, I would like to find out if the Strymon Brigadier is able to emulate such analog sounds. Besides the comparison of different settings, I also checked out how these two sound stacked.
The first part of the of the Strymon Brigadier-review was about the features of this digital delay pedal. This second part is dedicated to the sound of the Strymon Brigadier.
Th short mode, which is oriented to a one-chip delay, offers a beautiful slapback sound with at least up to 400ms. Maxed, the delay sound becomes somehow metallic – similar to an analog delay with an overclocked chip. The peak of the repeats is very realistic at the upper mids and cut very well through the mix.
