Multi-tap-tastic
Kaiviti, 13.07.2019
Using with electric guitar.

I'm a big fan of delay and own many including a timeline and an echolution2. I also had an El Capistan which I sold to buy the Volante and I have no regrets about doing that whatsoever. I like multi-tap delays, drum and tape delays so the volante seemed an obvious choice. I had a Catalinbread echorec a while and though it was ok, it never really hit the mark for me and was a bit noisy too. The volante is a whole different animal, in a word, awesome!

The pedal is quiet and doesn't colour your sound. The quality of the delays is just breathtaking and highly tweakable. I like being able to dial in the tape wear and mechanical artefacts so you can go from sounding like an echorec staight off the production line to a space echo that has been bouncing around in the back of a van for years and anything inbetween. The spring reverb is great too, even just on it's own with the delay heads all turned off. There is just so much in this box - if you are wondering, the tape delays are way better than the timeline but that's not really a fair comparison. Watch the strymon videos, I cnt see how anyone would be disappointed.

Cons? The delay has something like 128 memories accessed via MIDI program change but there is no other indication of which preset you are using and integration with Strymon's Nixie editor might have been nice though not a big deal.

I strongly urge any fan of tape, drum and/or multi-tap delays to try one of these but be warned, if you try one you will want to buy one!

Versatile vintage delay pedal
elektrovolt, 21.12.2020
The Volante is a high quality tape and disk-echo style delay wich works well for both guitars and synths or as a stereo effect for line level signals such as a synthesizer or as a stereo aux effect. The different head selections, looper and additional spring reverb make it to stand out from many other pedals. You will need to read the manual to be able to find the extra parameters for some fine tuning.

Wunderbar bis auf den SOS looper
waxdoctor, 21.03.2021
Das Volante ist wirklich ein ausgesprochen gutes Magnetic Echo.
Sound- und Funktions-mäßig darf man eigentlich nicht meckern.
Das einzige was mich stört ist, dass Strymon den SOS Looper mit einem "Infinite Mode" anpreist, welcher keine Verschlechterung der Wiederholungen garantiert. Dem ist aber nicht so! Die Wiederholungen nehmen an Qualität ab. Also Vorsicht falls man das Pedal als auch Unendlich-Looper nutzen will.

Best delay in the market
Sambatyon, 29.09.2020
My first pedal ever was an MXR carbon copy. I love delay more than other effect, but I am an amateur and while I love the sound of old tape based delays, the complexity of their operation (and price) just scared me. Come the volante, it is easier to use than I expected given all the knobs it has. It is extremely simple to use and gets such beautiful sounds. One thing I really enjoy is how one can go from a total clean delay to one with some modulation playing with the tape age and mechanics.
