Rediscover what a boost pedal can be with the incredible Strymon OB.1 - the new front end to unlock even more of your favourite amp

  • Compressor and booster pedal
  • Your new perfect front end for your amp
  • True Bypass (electromechanical relay switching)
  • Greater than 20 dB of gain compensated compression
  • Additional 10 dB of full frequency, mid, or treble boost with Clean Boost engaged
  • Treble Boost Frequency: Shelf at about 1.5 kHz or 2 kHz switchable with internal DIP switches
  • Mid Boost Frequency: Peak around 800 Hz or 1.1 kHz switchable with internal DIP switches
  • "The Strymon OB.1 can definitely enhance your guitar tone. You can also save some room on your pedalboard since the OB.1 is a compressor, clean boost and treble boost all in one package" Premier Guitar

The Strymon OB.1 combines studio quality, beautifully transparent analogue optical compression with a Clean Boost with EQ curves designed to super-charge your favourite amp and reveal its true character.

Featuring an all-analogue signal path with premium components throughout, a high-impedance input, and very low noise circuitry, the Strymon OB.1 is perfect for the number one spot in your signal chain. It’s the missing piece you’ve been searching for.

There is a monster trapped inside your low or medium gain amp, and the Strymon OB.1 can set it free. Bring out your amp’s character in ways you never thought possible. Hear things you never knew your amp could do.

The Strymon OB.1 provides greater than 20dB of gain-compensated compression, and with the integrated Clean Boost, an extra 10dB of full-frequency, mid or treble boost is available. Use the mid or treble boost together with a bit of transparent compression, and your amp will sound like it was just modified by a world-class boutique amp designer.

The first stage of a high gain amplifier channel doesn’t just boost gain, it also boosts high-end in such a way so that the distorted signal can cut through without getting bogged down by too much low-end. When you use OB.1 first in your signal chain and engage the mid or treble boost, that’s exactly what you’re achieving. Even if you’ve tried boost pedals before, you’ll be surprised by the transformation of your tone. Try the treble boost with humbuckers for biting solos or the mid boost to fatten up single coil pickups. There is also a flat setting for full-frequency Clean Boost.

Arpeggios, sweep-picking, hammer-ons, and other blazing techniques benefit when each note is played at a consistent level. OB.1’s optical compression preserves your attacks while smoothing out the overall signal, bringing out the softer notes. You can also enjoy the sustain of high gain without too much of the fizzy stuff. And the Strymon OB.1’s extremely quiet analogue signal path with its high-quality, low noise op amp and high-impedance input is perfect in front of your high-gain setup.
