Strymon Announces New Brig dBucket Delay Pedal In Smaller Form Factor
A bucket brigade-inspired delay workstation with three different personalities arrives.
Westlake Village, CA, USA – July 18, 2023
Strymon Engineering (www.strymon.net), the revered manufacturer of products for the guitar and Eurorack markets, announced the release of a new bucket brigade-inspired delay pedal called Brig today. The new pedal uses the same smaller platform that Strymon recently introduced with their Cloudburst ambient reverb pedal, and has three distinctly different delay Voices that were inspired by different types of bucket brigade circuits. Along with stereo IO on TRS jacks, a new artifact-free tap tempo mode, USB C and TRS MIDI connectivity with 300 presets and Strymon’s acclaimed discrete JFET analog input, Brig also allows the player to use delay time values that would be outside the normal range of the chips used in each Voice. This means you can choose the tonal character of the delay separately from the available delay time – something not possible with analog bucket brigade pedals. Brig’s three Voices can go from slapback echo to stereo cross-coupled dream-scapes and everything in between, and it’s a killer standalone BBD chorus pedal as well!
“This one came out pretty special”, said Pete Celi, Strymon co-founder, DSP maven and sound designer. “The repeats and modulation have been tuned to offer a ton of different tonal possibilities, and it’s such a joy to play that it’s easy to lose track of time. I’ve been surprised when looking at the clock a number of times during development!” Gregg Stock, Strymon co-founder and CEO said, “we’re really pleased with Brig – it delivers a ton of delay possibilities and IO flexibility in the smaller platform that we announced with Cloudburst, and at a smaller price. Initial feedback from internal and external testers has been overwhelmingly positive, so I think customers will be in 70’s delay heaven as soon as they plug in.”
Brig is available directly from Strymon and at select dealers worldwide, for $259 US.
