Our 6 Favorite Strymon Pedals

When it comes to pedals, there are a lot of options. But there’s only one king: Strymon. The best combination of aesthetic, function, ability, and sound, Strymon pedals are #1 for a good reason. At Boothe Music, we love our Strymons, and while we can’t sell them online, we’d be happy to get you set up with your new pedal over the phone! Give us a call and let’s get your pedalboard looking premium. In the meantime, here’s out favorite Strymon pedals, just to get you started.

1. Timeline Delay

The King has to have a champion, right? How could we start with anything other than Timeline, Strymon’s best selling (and for good reason) delay pedal. Featuring 12 sounds, highly editable parameters, 200 editable presets, and a 30 second looper to boot.

2. Nightsky Reverberator

NightSky is a reverberant synthesis workstation, and a powerful, hands-on experimental sound design platform. NightSky gives you real-time continuous control of reverb pitch/processing rate/core size, harmonics, and even a synth-like resonant filter with multiple modulation waveshapes, plus a step sequencer with variable glide.

3. Riverside Distortion

Riverside is the culmination of a thorough analysis of numerous analog and vacuum tube circuits. The goal? To deliver a new world of harmonically rich, incredibly versatile, tube-inspired drive sounds. We didn’t want to build just another distortion or overdrive. We knew we must examine what has been done, and bring a new approach to the world of drive sounds.

4. blueSky Reverberator

The philosophy behind our blueSky Reverberator is simple—take a ridiculously powerful SHARC DSP and dedicate it to doing one thing only: producing the most lush, majestic and stunning reverbs ever. Many hours and sleepless nights in the Strymon sound design labs were devoted to developing the complex reverb algorithms found inside blueSky. We squeezed every last drop of processing power available.

5. Flint Tremolo

The magical combination of tremolo and reverb is the earliest example of a perfect guitar effects marriage. First pioneered within historic amplifiers of the 1960s, this harmonious coexistence has made it’s way onto countless records and performances—from early surf, swampy bayou blues, spaghetti westerns, film noir soundtracks, to modern day indie rock. There are certain things in life that just belong together—the blend of tremolo and reverb create the perfect pair.

6. Zelzah Phaser

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—all instantly musical with great tone all the way across every dial.
