Strymon Zelzah – Multidimensional Phaser And Modulation Pedal

Way Back Machine

Step on Zelzah, play one chord, and you’re instantly taken back to a world of classic phaser tones as they were always meant to sound, perfectly voiced, with tons of vibe.

Vintage 4-stage and 6-stage phasing with controls that allow seamless transitions to vibrato, gorgeous flanging and chorus, and new sounds never heard before. Create instantly musical sounds with great tone, all the way across every dial.

Two Effects At Once

Zelzah is actually two different phasers, side by side in one pedal.

Zelzah’s 4-stage side gives you a wide array of classic tones ranging from phasing to vibrato and more, while the 6-stage side provides phasing, flanging, chorus, and all points in between. Dial in a chorus on one side and barber pole phaser on other. Use the two sides independently or together in a variety of configurations.

The Strymon Zelzah may become the only modulation pedal you keep on your board.

Choose Your 4-Stage Phaser Sweep

Barber Sweep

Similar to the visual effect of a barber pole, the Barber sweep is a continuously rising or falling effect.

In Zelzah we have used an arrangement of synchronized four stage phasers to produce the effect while maintaining the four stage sound.

Envelope Phaser

Set the Sweep switch to Env and you’ve got a whole new pedal under your feet.

Now the phaser responds to your picking like an envelope filter/auto-wah would. With the phaser sweep being dynamically controlled by your input signal, you can create harmonically complex and very funky sounds.

Classic Sweep

The first Sweep mode is labeled “Classic” because this is the classic four stage phaser sweep we all know.

Additionally, in this Sweep mode, a single LFO with a warped triangle shape creates that familiar vintage sound.

Six Stage Voice: Groundbreaking New Phaser Algorithm

The Voice knob on the six stage side simultaneously controls over 30 different parameters, all working in harmony.

Not only do you get thick, juicy, phasing with pure vintage vibe, but as you turn the Voice knob clockwise, our groundbreaking new modified all-pass structure expands the time response of the cascading all-pass filters seamlessly and continuously, adding spaciousness and airiness to the sound.

Explore a range of fresh musical tones that are not a mix of phasing and flanging, but something new entirely. Turn the Voice knob to the right for luxurious true flanger effects, and continue to the far end of the range for lush vintage chorus sounds. There are inspiring musical sounds at every point along the dial, and so many ways to make a sound that is truly yours.
