- Mix knob
- Bucket Loss knob
- Repeats knob
- Mod knob
- Tap tempo switch


Strymon makes three delay pedals. This one is aimed at the lovers of tried and true analog delay.

There are so many options it's a bit dizzying. The best thing to do is to try the suggested settings in the manual. Here's a description, albeit a poor one, of the different functions. The Mode switch is pretty easy to understand. It changes from a short delay to a LONG delay. The knob does the fine tuning. The switch for Tap, I am not really sure what that does. Strymon says that it switches between "quarter, dotted eighth, and eighth note triplets" but I don't know what that means, so that description sounds great to me. The Mix knob is another standard; it sets the amount of effect you have in your signal. Bucket Loss is an interesting one. It allows you to set the amount of signal loss you experience for every cycle. The Mod knob (or LFO modulation) knob controls the amount of tape warble effect.

On top of those features, you can also use an expression pedal, or a "Favorite" switch where you can designate your second setting on the fly. There are also other features like an infinite repeat option when you hold the Tap button down.


The debate over "analog or digital" has been happening for years with everything from vinyl records to delay pedals. I must admit, when it comes to delay pedals, I think I prefer digital. I prefer it because it allows for features you simply cannot have on an all analog delay but it can also be extremely clean, quiet, and transparent. My only issue with this delay pedal is that the sound is a bit too transparent. What it does (which is just about everything) is done so well, but it doesn't add the depth and the lush overtones that other delay (digital or analog) pedals can.


I was originally dazzled by the abundance of features and how well this pedal handled them all. I ultimately decided that, for my delay usage, I'd preferred the sound of other pedals over the extreme amount of functionality the Strymon Brigadier. That doesn't mean this pedal isn't fantastic, it is. It is just a little too transparent for my tastes. If you're looking for a feature filled transparent delay pedal, this just might be what you are looking for.

Good for many things, great anywhere. I would describe it as useful, especially if you add a "favorite switch". Useful with its spillover, its many settings, the tap tempo. But it does not really dreaming. One recognizes the sound of bucket brigade, but a caricature. I think it is better to find an old delay and add a digital back to enjoy the best of both worlds (which may even be cheaper), rather than opting for this pedal a little mid-figue mi- grape leaves us yet our hunger.
Otherwise unimportant but the pedal is beautiful, small, consumes a lot (more than my zoom G3) and the solid guess.
And indeed the modulation is very average, and the bucket brigade knob generates white noise to 3/4 of the way, it does means a pedal at this price.
I sold so quickly that I asked to be convinced ... Damage.

Nothing to say, super nice pedal (but we got a little crazy), very solid. Not fat at all, same side as the square of the length of a Boss (that follows?)


In a comment below you can read what the switches are very hard, mouai, I personally think they are well within the norm .. Boss is not good or Lovepedal but I do not fault them! Otherwise there are more buttons within the time type carbon copy but it is super simple to use: mix, repetitive and time for the part very conventional modulation (I do not like, would come back) bucket and loss: the repeats degrade (press the 2 switches the filter knob knob becomes: repeated dark glossy: yes there are hidden features that require reading the manual) 2nd function, pressing the switch on / off simultaneously that the power supply industry, we choose between two modes, one: net stop repeats disabling effect, 2: they keep turning off the effect, I choose Custom option. In short super simple to use but you still have to learn to "hidden" functions


Bein here I want to say it's really great, super easy to use and sounds irrespective of the settings when I do not want to take my head I set everything at noon ... And in addition to more traditional times the filter and bucket loss can sculpt the sound repetitions, more or less dark or bright, degrading or not ... really great short. There is just the modulation that I do not like, with a little bit why not, but frankly I think it's ugly when you shoot. With more repetitions at 15h, each repetition is stronger than the previous one, ie it goes into self oscillation (you can also go on a self oscillation by keeping the tap tempo), is a way to really s' also fun playing on the time which varies as the frequency of the analog delays (for against the volume can be very difficult to master, with a compression marrent after it, it saturates and I can control the level)


So sound quality at the top (in clean, overdrive, distortion, metal, wah, compressed, ect ...) so easy to use and what's more: what effectively sculpt the sound repetitions, the tap tempo, modulation and a bit anecdotal, but hey I do not use.

In short, this J'adooore Brigadier!

I play a Start with a Hiwatt custom (electro acoustic with the fact that too!)

Simple, but watch out access to the hidden features are somewhat less


Rehearsals analog sound quite colorful, it is possible to clarify


. On the modulation setting there is a choice between a chorus (the first half of the race the knob) or a vibrato
. Can be adjusted plus or-3dB effect is one of the hidden features
. 3 different rates for using the tap tempo. not easy to explain here ....

the +
. if it is supported on the tap tempo, rehearsals are at infinity to self oscillation
. ability to adjust the tone repetitions
. opportunity to take the treaty to the effect his untreated
. Expression pedal input to control any setting

the -
. we would have preferred a momentary switch for tap tempo (like the sr Memory Lane Jr)
. the loss bucket that adds dirt or rather the background noise is of little use in rehearsal as implausible
