Strymon blueSky
The Strymon blueSky is an unbelievable reverb pedal. It’s probably the best sounding and most versatile reverb pedal that I’ve used. I only found out about it recently when a friend showed it to me after he got it. I didn’t know anything about Strymon either and I’m glad that I do now. The pedal is a stereo one so it has two ¼” connections for both input and output and is powered by a nine volt power supply. It’s not rackable at all since it’s a stomp box.


It’s going to take some time to fully grasp the Strymon blueSky and to learn everything that it has to offer, which is almost endless. Getting basic sounds is easy but to master it will take some time for sure. I’ve only scratched the surface of the pedal myself since I don’t yet own it. The basic parameters that it has to play with include knobs for mix, pre-delay, high damp, low damp, and decay. It also has three different modes and three different reverb types – plate, room, and spring. The modes add a whole level of versatility including the ability to infinitely sustain notes. I would check out the manual if I just bought this pedal.


The sound of the Strymon blueSky is some of the smoothest reverb I’ve heard come out of any device. It’s stunning how accurate it sounds and what’s more is its amazing versatility between the three reverb types and modes. It has a certain depth to it that I haven’t heard in any pedals before and only seems to be present in the real deal in things like true plate and spring reverbs. Still, it’s not going to sound like a real plate reverb although it’s damn close.


The Strymon blueSky is probably the best sounding reveb unit I’ve used for guitar and is definitely at least in the top three. Sure it’s a pretty penny for a pedal but you’re going to get ultimate control, fidelity, and versatility in your reverb sound. It’s definitely a pro’s pedal but that doesn’t mean others can’t dream about it or at least try it for themselves to see if it’s worth the money.

The Strymon Blue Sky Reverb is a digital reverb pedal. It has 1/4 inch inputs and outputs and is not rackable as it is a stomp box. It has ten different types of reverbs and four parameters to control them. It has a wide variety of reverb sounds and easy to use overall.


The setup of this pedal is extremely easy, as is getting a good sound out of it. It has five knobs total - one for to choose the type of reverb, one for tone, one for time, one for decay, and one of mix. These controls are basic and manipulating it is quite easy. Some of the types of reverb include hall, chamber, gate, spring, and plate. I don't have a manual for this pedal, but have never had a use to look into getting one.


The sound quality of the effects on this pedal are top notch. I have only used this with guitar - usually a Schecter Ultra III and a '76 Fender Twin Reverb. With this set up I am able to get some great reverb from this pedal. Being that it has ten different types of reverb, the pedal has the capability of getting a number of different types of reverb sounds. My favorite reverb on this pedal are the plate and the chamber effects. This is a high quality pedal with a number of very usable reverb sounds.


I've been using the Strymon Blue Sky Reverb for two years. I have found it to be an above average reverb pedal because of the overall sound quality and its ability to get a vast number of different types of reverbs. I would compare this pedal to a Boss RV-5, as both have a similar price and overall capabilities. It is hard for me to choose between both pedals, as I think both are great options. The Strymon Blue Sky Reverb has great tone quality and it won't break the bank. It has a sleek design and its versatility makes it a great all purpose reverb pedal.

Strymon blueSky
The reverb for those who want to do everything with uncompromising sound.
fundamentalists analog could be found on their behalf if they used more than their ears ...
for me Strymon has re-invented the digital DSP with the other world ...
(For specifications please check the site)


very instinctive malgrés ultimate versatility and switch "favorite" is a killer good idea concentrate ...
mode job is well done but not used much as it is instinctive ...
we find very quickly the desired sound


I saw reverb pedals and I tested a package but then .... you're in another world ... its big sister the big sky is not better (it is over) I think that after this pedal for a "better" one must turn to the reverbs and amp plate (very large which costs 1000 euro coin )


6 months ago I not budge and yet I am not a fan of reverb but this is not the same ...

in my custom shop strat is a journey in time and sounds already heard 10,000 times ... the psychoacoustic his account!

I remake that choice (the big sky is too big, a gas plant that does more without doing better and I have everything I need with the blue sky)

ultimate killing the end of a quest ...

Reiep's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)" High-end reverb"

Strymon blueSky
Broadly, stereo reverb pedal upscale, true bypass, including 3 types of reverb (room, flat spring) and 3 modes (normal, mod, shimmer). For full features, better visit Strymon, over-inclusive.
The pedal is made entirely of aluminum and should withstand the strongest shoes.
If you use a power supply at least 200mA DC 9V required (measured by Cioks).
The only flaw in my opinion (like all single pedals Strymon): no MIDI to control favorites (preset = 2), activation / deactivation of the pedal and pedal always use a phrase via midi. A true dry kill would have been appreciated too.


Very easy to use, there is really a way of carving reverb with onions. Only the Mix knob has a dual function (+ / - 3dB), so it is simpler than the El Capistan from this point of view.
The practical Favorite button allows you to save a preset it will be easy to remember in one click.
The manual is very explicit but in English, non-English speakers will make an effort.


I use the BlueSky with Diezel Hagen mainly to give fullness to my sound when I play alone in smaller volume. I put it in the parallel loop with the mix to 100%, reverb-type room with mod mode. The idea is to have a very subtle reverb, you can almost hear that when the off ... and it works!
I use it sometimes in a pop record on clean sounds, this time in the series loop spring or shimmer, each time with excellent results. I'm not a big fan of reverb, but I can every time find the setting I need, is the principal. Settings pre-delay and low / high damp really help sculpt his sound.
I stay in a very subtle registry, but those who want "the big reverb that spot" will also be met.


Overall, an excellent reverb pedal for demanding users. I my bearings to models TC Electronic or Hardwire, but a great deal has helped me a chopper BlueSky like new at an unbeatable price.
It remains an expensive pedal that I can recommend for demanding users reverb. Most casual users of other more affordable models that will make the job very much, which ultimately is my case. This is why I would reiterate a BlueSky if I fall back on a great deal for my use is luxury.
