Presenting the all new Strymon Brig dBucket Delay pedal.

The delays that become true classics do not simply repeat the notes you play, they do something special to each delay repeat – something that evokes a feeling, fueling the music and inspiring you.

Plug into the new Brig compact delay pedal from Strymon, play a note, and you’re instantly drawn in by repeats that evolve with captivating complexity and uncommonly rich tonal characteristics.

The Brig delivers all the warmth, subtle grit and unique tactile playing experience of analog bucket brigade delays (BBDs), offering three distinct delay voicings in one highly addictive stereo pedal.

Three Delays in One
Brig’s stunning dBucket sound generation gives you three different and meticulously crafted analog delay voicings:
  • The 3205 voice delivers gritty repeats that can morph as it feeds back, creating sounds ranging from gorgeous slapback echoes to psychedelic sci-fi effects.
  • The 3005 voice recreates a dual MN3005 BBD chip circuit for longer delay times and warm repeats with a soft, dreamlike quality.
  • The Multi voice features two cross-coupled, super-clean dBucket delay lines with golden ratio timing to create complex soundscapes and a huge stereo soundfield that remains musical and clean even while sitting on the edge of self-oscillation.

Deceptively Powerful
Brig is a triumph of compact design, offering a huge amount of power and flexibility in an elegantly small form factor: Three truly distinct delay voices. Artifact-free tap tempo. Stereo operation. Straightforward responsive controls and expression pedal capability. High-impedance, ultra-low noise discrete Class A JFET stereo input preamp for exceptional touch sensitivity, dynamics and feel. MIDI control for tempo, patch save/recall, and more. Premium components, rugged construction, and a USB jack for controlling the pedal via MIDI from a computer or for performing firmware updates.

Brig’s voices are crafted with an attention to detail that encompasses not only the characteristics of the BBD chips, but also the surrounding circuitry responsible for turning those early designs into the classics they are considered today. Companding, filtering, and noise reduction techniques played important parts in the final sound and dynamic response of those time-honored delay circuits, and Brig has captured them all.

Brig’s modulation is individually voiced for each of the three delay types, and was carefully tuned to create beautifully lush modulation at any delay time or modulation speed. And while the Multi delay voice with its dual cross-coupled ping-pong delay lines would seem the obvious go-to for creating a huge stereo field, Brig’s modulation is designed to produce awesome stereo effects with the 3205 and 3005 voices as well. To reveal a hidden superpower, set the 3205 voice to its minimum 30ms delay time and turn up the modulation for sumptuous bucket brigade chorus effects.

Classic bucket brigade delays created a unique variety of instantly recognizable, sought-after feedback effects, and the Brig faithfully and organically reproduces the same sounds and experience. Brig’s smooth, responsive controls and remarkable dBucket sound engine invite you to crank up the repeats, twist the Time knob, adjust the filter, and get lost in vintage sci-fi psychedelia. Besides all the fun to be had by pushing Brig into full self-oscillation, just sitting on the edge of runaway feedback can create intriguing sound beds under your lead or rhythm playing. As an added bonus, each of Brig’s three delay voicings has its own distinct feedback characteristics, so you can tailor the feedback response to fit the sound you’re going for.

A whisper of gentle noise is part of the sound of bucket brigade analog delay repeats (which is traditionally shaped and controlled by companding and filtering processes in the analog domain), and all of that sonic detail and organic behavior is part of the sound of Brig. Especially with the 3005 voice, the subtle noise adds a dreamlike quality to the repeats. Lovely as it is, the noise is also optional, and is easily dialed out by turning the filter knob clockwise past 2 o’clock. The Brig’s filter is customized for each voice, controlling not only noise level and EQ for repeats but bucket loss as well.

Artifact Free Tap Tempo

Modern technology FTW: Tapping in tempos with Brig works in a seamless way that would be impossible with a real analog delay. Confidently tap your tempos with no pitch shifting, no clicks, ramps or mutes. All those glorious and unique bucket brigade pitch-shifting, spaceship-launching and delay character-modifying effects are always available when setting tempo with the Time knob, but when tapping tempo Brig changes to new values smoothly and keeps you in the groove. And once tempo has been tapped in, you can use the Time knob to set the Tap Division for triplet, eighth, dotted eighth, or quarter note.
