    I own the Deco .
    I really like the tape saturation when it comes to enhancing , mmmm... everything. yeah at the right setting it can turn good sounds into lively present and special sounds.
    this is a taste of what it does .
    I had no Idea of what this pedal is capable of until I looked at the manual. Expensive, hmmmmm, in this case you get what you pay for and then some
    here is the manual.

    I listened to The big sky pedal demo today.
    the Cocteau Twins, Robin Guthrie who added some techniques as innovative as any another great guitar player certain has created a place in space for adventurist guitar players not interested in smashing down doors ,(which certainly has it's place in an alienating greedy, conformity demanding society, controlled by a privileged few.) but interested upto and including seducing angels with your fender, and watching the sunrise over the sierras. This pedal comes at a very dear price, given the well above my self imposed $300.00 price range.
    Do I want one , yes! Can I see myself buying one , no. I already have to many jars of honey and scotish preserves open. Another serious distract particularly as potent as this one is not where I'll be going for awhile

    Strymen Deco, preamp fx's send. Saturation , adds a wonderful quality to the sound of the guitar signal. Saturation low setting through 1:00 o'clock tasty presence after 1:00 o'clock depending on the preamp setting from clean to gritty , the strymen adds sweetly to the grind , never wooly ,buzzy or anger hornets. a muscular sound can be found easily after 1:00 o'clock for that bright lights, big city rock sound.
    the double tap recorder aspect of the peddle so far has yielded a handsome thickening to the sound with out sounding muddy.

    I would replace this pedal if lost/stolen . It has improved the sound of my preamp all across the board . The preamp is the
    Digitech GSP 1101 preamp/processor. It provides very good modeling of all those old tube amps that now cost a fortune.
    adding the Deco to the preamp put those modeled amps in the room, ( I can almost feel the ruffling off my bell bottoms ) and the models sound even better when recorded live into the DSP.
    It's odd all of the consensus reality about what is and isn't possible , the currently fashionable formulas for getting "a good sound" and what is required could be viewed as if observing the raising and lowering of women's hem lines through the years as fashions change while remaining essentially the same.

    I have a Jupiter, Iron Horse, and now a Luminary. I highly recommend one if you don't have one. Interesting attack knob let's you swell in octaves.

    How do you get on with the iron horse? It looks like a great pedal.

    The iron horse is great for angry rock stuff. It also can get you into Vai territory with the right amp or OD pedal in front.

    It's very, VERY low gain. I'm talking about I have the gain almost maxed and there's just a very small amount of breakup. When you add in the diodes ("closed") mode, you get more, but it does change the sound a bit.

    It's a great clear, jangly overdrive sound though.

    Quick question for Timeliners.. any chance a Digitech FS3x footswitch will work as a multiswitch? According to the web, it works with Eventide pedals.. so just wondering if it works with Strymon too?

    It might. I have a old Johnson Millennium Footswitch 3 button that worked for a Digitech Trio. Give it a try and see. I don't think it will hurt anything.
