After waiting 3 weeks and my original pedal got lost in the mail (good job USPS), I finally got my hands on a used Styrmon Deco V1.

I only have a few minutes with pedal but I am throughly impressed with it. The Saturation size is a fantastic overdrive/boost and the Double tracker can do Chorus/flange to doubletracking/slapback all the way to 500ms delay. It's also not a back looking pedal either.

Thanks. It's starting to become what I envisioned it to be.

The Deco is really cool because it exists in the area between Flanger/chorus but before Delay. This pedal will do a 500ms delay but it works in that space that most delay pedals don't get into. You can definitely get slap back delays with other delay pedals, but it covers so much ground in that pre delay space while still doing delay things. The Saturation side really takes it to another level. This would be great pedal on a minimalist board if you needed something that could give you overdrive/saturation while doing your basic effects. It's one of those "always on" kind of pedals. It kinda flys under the radar because of the popularity of other Strymon pedals like El Capistan or Timeline.

Found a nice odd shelf in the ikea bargain corner for £1 and thought it’d make a nice pedalboard.

Still loving the fuzz face, it really sings when it’s fed into a driven amp or plexi style dirt pedal.

Octavio is sounding pretty nasty, which is what I wanted it to be. Gets into ring mod territory when playing more than one note at times.

Used a load of switch cleaner on my DLS pots and switches and it’s now fully functional again. Green mode is plexi mode, set for light breakup/crunch sound.

The M5 is a maybe at the moment, as I’m thinking of sticking it through the FX loop and leaving it on top of the amp. I can toggle the loop on/off through the amp foot switch and may find a cheap 4/5 button midi switcher to access presets on the M5. Though sounds like hassle for the occasional delay/verb/leslie sound.

Keep seeing the TC electronics bucket brigade delay cropping up and sounds great for £40-50 quid.

Wifey has hinted that i might be getting a wah for Christmas as I regretted selling my nice Hendrix one that I loved.

Love it, also love how the origin looks in white/cream tolex.

Is that the CS script 90?

Cheers mate. Yeah it’s the CS script 90, but the LED version, not the ‘74 battery only one. Probably one of my oldest pedals.

Been a while since I’ve had a roadie……….
Helping daddy with his new old wah pedal.

Fuzz face definitely doesn’t like the wah in front of it, neither does the octavio. But running the wah after both and having the amp on edge of breakup and it sounds fucking glorious!!

I bit the bullet about a year or more ago and bought a twin reverb, but like.pretty much everything I have.... it's just not what it seems. I tried to do a bit of research and from what I can gather it is most likely one of the crazy liner 135 watt bastards from the 70s or 80s that has had a decent about of work done. Like being re-faced as a black panel, and the master volume re-located to the back of the amp. I have used it for two gigs so far and it's blown my ampeg reverberocket out of the water and I have put my fender 68 deluxe reverb in the corner of, "overstock"

Weird. Why would someone do that? A useful thing to have though.
