Favorite switch coming in mid-July

Have a Brigadier delay? Want to be able to store a preset of your favorite settings? The Favorite switch connects to your Brigadier with an included 1/4″ TRS cable, no additional power supply required. Press and hold bypass to save your Favorite. Engage to recall your Favorite. Turn off to revert to the current knob states of your Brigadier.

We’re building them soon and expect to have them available for purchase on our site in mid-July.

Here’s a quick workbench photo I took in the lab:

  1. Great. I can’t wait! This will perfect the Brigadier.
    Now I can have my dotted eighth “digital” sound and my super ambient long “analog” sound in one pedal. Sweeeeet.

  2. @glenn – You’ve found the next Strymon pedal that we’re working on. I can’t reveal any info just yet!!

  3. Please give us a hint! I’m dying to know what the new pedal is! When can we know?! Is it a phaser? Tremolo? Drive? Octave divider? Seriously. I need to know.

  4. What is the pricing going to be like on the favorite pedal? (Very excited, by the way.)

  5. We will have Favorite switches available on Monday 7/12. They’re priced at $49 and come with the 1/4″ TRS cable. 🙂

  6. I will probably buy one – cool! But It would be cool if it was about half the width. And if it could store 2-3 favourites it would be a lot more useful.

  7. Please make a favorite switch that works on the Orbit Flanger as an additional favorite…so I can have 3 flanger settings! (one adjustable and two favorites)

    PS I’ll buy another one for my Blue Sky if you make that, too!

  8. Already thinking of getting a Favourite along with an El Capistan but here go some ideas of possile improvements for the Favourite (within the same enclosure) :

    – add a second footswitch above the existing one
    – add an Expression Pedal input on the back
    – add a small numeric screen
    – footswitches are labeled “up” and “down” (as in a regular multi-fx pedal) and go through, say, four or eight settings (labeled 1 to 7…)
    – the last setting engages the Expression Pedal/CV input (labeled E on the screen)
    – disengage the pedal by steping again on the active footswitch

    What do you think of this? Of course, the pedal would sell for more than the actual price but still, I would be very interested in one, since this would make the real estate loss worth and further expand the Brigadier and El Capistan’s possibilities.

  9. Oh, and you could still sell the “Favourite” pedal for those on a budget or who don’t need more options and call this expanded version “Jealousy”. 🙂

  10. Hey Neds, thanks for the ideas! Like the proposed name too. We’re always working on new ideas so it’s great to hear. Right now we don’t have any plans on making a mega-favorite switch but if there’s enough demand we might consider it. Thanks again!

  11. You’re welcome Ethan. Now you got me hopeing that there will be enough demand. 🙂

    @73171 : The Orbit flanger has stereo ins and outs thus no room (at least, not in it’s current layout) for an additional jack (necessary for pluging either, the Favourite or an expression pedal).

  12. +1 on the mega-favorite switch!!!
    This will upgrade the Brigadier to be the best delay out there
    BY FAR!!
