Strymon Brig Delay Machine

Certified Organic Echo -

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 Brig, play a note, and you’re instantly drawn in by repeats that evolve with captivating complexity and uncommonly rich tonal characteristics. 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.


Magic Modulation -

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.


Play The Feedback -

Classic bucket brigade delays created a unique variety of instantly recognizable, sought? after feedback effects, and 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.



Controls the delay time according to the selected VOICE. Delay clock is continuously variable so that turning it while repeats are happening can produce interesting pitch effects.


The 3-way toggle switch selects the chip style and configuration. This affects tonal character and time range: 3205 – 30-300ms. Recreates the character of vintage delay pedals that used a single low voltage MN3205 BBD chip for gritty repeats — great for slap back, leads, and sci-fi sounds 3005 – 100ms-1 sec. Recreates the character of vintage delay pedals that used two MN3005 BBD chips at higher voltage for longer delay times with a dreamy quality multi – Creates complex soundscapes using two cross-coupled, super-clean BBD delay lines with golden ratio timing


Controls the delay mix from full dry at minimum to full wet with no dry signal at maximum. A 50/50 mix occurs at approximately 3 o’clock on the knob.


Adjusts the EQ filtering, noise, and bucket loss of the repeats based on the selected VOICE.


Varies the number of delay repeats from one to runaway oscillation. Set to 3 o’clock for sustained, infinite repeat without runaway.


Adds LFO modulation to the delay time. Modulation is off at the minimum setting. The modulation speed is slow in the first half of the knob and fast in the second half of the knob, increasing in intensity as the knob is turned clockwise.


Engages and bypasses effect. A red LED indicates the effect is engaged. Also used to enter Tap Mode to manually tap in delay times. See User Manual for more details.
