Founded and built in the USA, Strymon pedals are setting the industry standard in guitar effects and sounds.
Guitar effects have been extremely popular since the 1970s, with famous guitarists such as Eddie Van Halen pioneering the use of phaser sounds to Chet Atkins' awesome tremolo and delay effects. Guitarists are known for exploring outside the boundaries of their instruments inherent capabilities, and over the courses of the past 40 years, we’ve been introduced to a number of devices such as phasers, flangers, super chorus, fuzz boxes, tremolo, reverb and much more.
Strymon pedals contain all of these effects and tons more to play with! Expertly crafted with premium materials and considered to be both durable and of high sound quality, it’s no wonder they’re some of the most popular effects pedals you can buy on the market.
Founded in 2004 in California, USA, Damage Control Engineering started out as a modest group of five friends, who shared the same dream. Originally specialising in tube-driven effects units, their original line of pedals was an instant hit with fans and in 2009 the team began work on a new generation of effects pedals. Strymon pedals would continue to set new standards for studio-grade and professional guitar effects, utilising DSP algorithms with unrivalled sound quality and tonal texture.
The core philosophy of Strymon is based around 'uncompromising sound', with meticulous attention to the finer details. Their pedals are highly revered amongst seasoned guitar players both for studio recording and live stage use.
