Five Effects Pedals You Might’ve Missed in 2021

Sometimes it pays to get a little weird with your tone. Plus who knows, maybe you’ll invent a whole new subgenre in the process?


Origin Effects DELUXE61

The Origin Effects DELUXE61 recreates the cleans, the overdrives, and the tremolo of the classic Fender Brown Deluxe amplifier. The pedal features an all-analog, valve amp-style signal path with an authentic bias tremolo circuit, a push-pull output stage with reactive load, and a Post-Drive EQ.

The Origin Effects DELUXE61 is available here for $459.

TC Electronic June-60v2

The TC Electronic JUNE-60 v2 features an upgraded circuit design with improved true-stereo output and a much wider stereo field than ever before. The new version also features two-speed options for both Preset I and II, and the less-obvious Preset III (I+II), which has been completely reworked and carefully tailored to match the original Juno-60 synthesizer’s secondary MODE 3 LFO.

The TC Electronic JUNE-60 v2 is available here for $69.

Eventide TriceraChorus

The Eventide TriceraChorus offers three chorus voices and three chorus effects (hence the “Tri” prefix) that can be combined for a wide array of chorus sounds. The Eventide TriceraChorus comes with five preset slots, a “Swirl” function for additional and extra swishy tones, a “Detune” function for maximum weirdness, and can be entirely controlled through Eventide’s Device Manager.

The Eventide TriceraChorus is available here for $229.

IK Multimedia AmpliTube X-VIBE

The IK Multimedia AmpliTube X-VIBE is a true stereo modulation pedal featuring 16 all-new delay effects leveraging IK’s latest AmpliTube technologies, and is accompanied by an exclusive virtual X-GEAR version of the exact same effects. As with all new IK Multimedia pedals, the X-VIBE also works with the AmpliTube 5 to record and tweak settings to save as presets on your X-VIBE.

The IK Multimedia AmpliTube X-VIBE is available here for $299.99.

Strymon Zelzah

The Strymon Zelzah is two phasers in one, offering both a four-stage phaser and a six-stage phaser. The four-stage gives players an array of classic tones from phasing to vibrato, while the six-stage side goes for everything phasing, flanging, and chorus-related. It also allows you to either use each side independently, or combine ’em together for a whole separate world of effects.

The Strymon Zelzah is available here for $349.
