Strymon Orbit dBucket Flanger Pedal at a Glance:
  • Vintage analog flanging tones
  • Highly customizable
  • Strymon: a philosophy of quality
Vintage analog flanging tones

Flanging has been used in recording studios ever since the late 1950s. The Beatles used the effect extensively on their Revolver album. And Eddie Van Halen cranked up a flanger for his "Unchained" riff. Though the Orbit dBucket Flanger pedal is a digital offering, it delivers those same analog swooshing sounds in a pedal built with today's standards with powerful processors. If you're looking for jet plane swoosh or bubbly swirl, it's in the Orbit.

Highly customizable

The faceplate of the Orbit boasts controls for Speed, Width, Mix, Regen, and Manual. These five controls easily span any flavor of flanging you desire. Under the hood is a wide range of secondary features to customize every nuance of your tone. If you find a sound that you'd like to have instant access to, you can store it as your Favorite. Just step on the Favorite footswitch, and you're right back to that sound. And an expression pedal input lets you control parameters in real time.

Best Flanger Ever? You Bet! (Its a Strymon!)

I already own several Strymon pedals, and just like any other player who uses modulation, delay and/or reverb in their set-up....I believe once you hear a Strymon chorus, reverb or delay thru your rig you will be converted LOLZ. Anyhow, I figured their flanger had to be at least as good as the others I have tried and owned (all the usual suspects) - my biggest gripe about this flanger is the cost. $ is a lot of cash for a flanger. That being said, when I hooked it into my pedal-board and turned it on, within 1 minute I was at Heart "Barracuda", in a little more than 5 more minutes I had dialed up that watery chorus tone from RUSH Hemispheres, The Police "Walking on the Moon" tone, and on into VHII heavy flange running on EVH's magical gain (I'm not quite at EVH's "brown" gain tone but I'm still working on THAT!)...anyhow trust me on this....the Strymon Orbit Flanger can cover all of that territory and so much more. The pedal is completely silent ON or OFF. As in Zero hum. Totally silent footswitching. The onboard favorite switch is quite handy (which does save from having to buy a Strymon favorite switch). I used it to store my fave 80's Andy Summer's Police tone) and kept the main setting at that unique 70's/80's RUSH oscillating watery chorus sound. The pedal is pretty light but well-built, like a tank. Open it up and move the jumpers and it can be configured to output L/R stereo. A MIX control. YES! So you can dial up more of your particular weirdness or calm it all down and let your original signal pass through with just a taste of flanger riding in the mix. Any new-wave guitarist, 70's/80's cover band player, any alt-rock to metal to shoegazer to ambient post-rock guitar player would benefit from this pedal. So - is it a lot of cash? Yes, but all the flanger you will ever need and then some. Shout out to my friend Aaron Smith at Sweetwater who delivers the best music store customer experience I have ever had each and every time I deal with him. Thank you so much, Aaron.

Sweetwater Advice

Orbit dBucket Flanger

When it comes to flangers and phasers, I'm usually a little more critical than I am of other effects. To me, they can become tiresome much quicker than delays or even other time-based effects. However, there are times when they can add some magic if you use them sparingly... The Orbit opens up a lot more possibilities in the modulation realm. ...
