Strymon Ola dBucket Chorus and Vibrato: Analog Tones with Modern Control

The Strymon Ola captures all the classic bucket brigade chorus and vibrato tones you love in a pedal with modern versatility and features not previously available. With access to three distinct chorus and vibrato types—Chorus, Multi, and Vibrato—this pedal offers a wide range of modulation effects to enhance your sound. The Chorus mode delivers an old school analog-voiced chorus sound, Multi mode is modeled after the classic rack-mounted triple chorus tones of the 80s, and Vibrato mode eliminates the dry signal for pure pitch modulating goodness.

Versatile Modulation Modes

Where the Ola really shines is its mode selector. The Normal mode does exactly what you'd expect, providing traditional chorus and vibrato effects. Envelope mode adds an envelope follower to the effect, allowing you to control the mix of the chorus tones or the rate of the vibrato sounds by varying your pick attack. Ramp mode allows you to ramp the effect's rate up and down by holding the momentary Ramp footswitch, adding dynamic expression to your playing.

Comprehensive Control Set

The Ola features a comprehensive yet easy-to-use control set, so you can spend less time twisting knobs and more time enjoying the rich modulation tones. Standard controls include Speed, Depth, and Mix knobs, which are familiar to users of classic chorus pedals. Additionally, the Ola includes a master Tone control to easily dial in the high-end presence and a Ramp/Env knob for quick control over Ramp speed and Envelope Sensitivity. A dedicated Favorite footswitch allows for easy recall of settings on the fly, and the Bypass footswitch doubles as the momentary Ramp switch.

Stereo Capability and High-Quality Audio

With full stereo ins and outs, the Ola is designed to integrate seamlessly into any setup. The pedal features class-leading 24-bit/96kHz A/D/A conversion, ensuring high-quality audio performance. True bypass switching (relay-based) preserves your signal integrity when the pedal is not in use. If you're looking for a great sounding, BBD-voiced chorus/vibrato with the versatility and control of a modern digital pedal, the Ola is the perfect solution.
