    SOUND QUALITY

    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 )

    OVERALL OPINION

    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 ...

    High-end reverb

    Strymon blueSkyPublished on 12/19/13 at 00:02
    (This content has been automatically translated from French)
    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.

    UTILIZATION

    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.

    SOUND QUALITY

    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 OPINION

    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.

    From what I understand the signal coming in is the same as that fate but mixed with reverb. The sound of your shovel is absolutely the worst best preserved completely mystified.

    UTILIZATION

    It's simple and complicated. If you want an excellent reverb for his amp that has not, it takes 10/15 minutes one is THE sound

    If we want to use effects pedal in the operator can spend hours! ANY rings

    SOUND QUALITY

    I use it with an LP and a tube amp Ibanez TSA 15 H which has no loop to insert the pedal between preap and power. the cup is behind the Tube Screamer board and yet it does it very well.

    OVERALL OPINION

    I use it for 6 months because I'll sell my new amp has an integrated reverb.

    If I had to buy a reverb I would buy this one and no other. *

    I love everything in there.

    I love the modulation mode with a room, the decay at 3 o'clock, mix to 13h, 10h to Low damp, damp High to 15h and 11h to pre delay. I just acquired my opinion is not necessarily relevant, but the sounds are remarkable.
    I do not like the shimmer effect is a matter of taste so subjective, but I prefer a couple POG2 with a delay and a little reverb.

    I will not dwell on it ...
    What I like is the ability to choose between true bypass (press off, the effect is off) and buffered (the "tail" of the reverb sound despite the interruption of the effect).
    The preset allows for two different reverbs under foot: the class!

    UTILIZATION

    Very intuitive ...

    SOUND QUALITY

    Then there is the slap! The pedal is very transparent, even in buffered bypass.
    All modes sound perfectly. Personally, I prefer the natural reverb (normal mode). I have a spring (short and clear) and room (long and darker): perfect for the stage!

    A MUST

    Strymon blueSkyPublished on 10/15/12 at 13:26
    (This content has been automatically translated from French)
    Type pedal boutique offering 3 types of reverb: flat, room and spring and 3 different modes: normal, modulate (reverb "chorussée") and shimmer. True bypass.

    Aesthetically very neat (small bluish look great) and a surprising lightness compared to what I have been before (and boss RV3 tc electronic nova reverb).

    In short, from the first grip, we feel that it has a product out of the ordinary in terms of its design. Remains to be seen on the plan sound.

    UTILIZATION

    Not complicated at all, subtlety found in the equalization reverb can sound: the damp low two knobs (bass) and high damp (acute) deserve attention and vary the rendering obtained very significantly. Add to bass reve…

    In short, from the first grip, we feel that it has a product out of the ordinary in terms of its design. Remains to be seen on the plan sound.

    UTILIZATION

    Not complicated at all, subtlety found in the equalization reverb can sound: the damp low two knobs (bass) and high damp (acute) deserve attention and vary the rendering obtained very significantly. Add to bass reverb rather dark or rather treble for a shiny.
    the first delay also strengthens the presence of finely reverb

    These three knobs are extremely sensitive and transform obtained as soon as we made the turn a few millimeters, the prerogative of quality pedals!

    SOUND QUALITY

    So there Strymon hat! On the sublime matter what research: a conventional reverb (the normal mode) or on the contrary a more surreal tone ideal for creating soundscapes to pink floyd example (with modes "mod" or "shimmer ").

    Another key point: the true bypass to respect the original grain of your amp.

    Note also that with the type of room and adjustment decay beyond noon we get a hall reverb (it bothered me that there is not this type of reverb, I am reassured!). More complete as it seems so.

    OVERALL OPINION

    This is undoubtedly the reverb pedal the moment, much higher than anything I could have. The class.

    Only the flint of the same brand that comes out could compete with the best and complete!

    it seems expensive on paper, but after all it is a little less than two times more expensive than boss rv 5 and 10 times it sounds as I say 100 times better! then the investment is worth it.

    SOUND QUALITY

    Very fact, and much more.

    OVERALL OPINION

    She entered my board for a little over a year now she is not near to sortir.J 've had some reverb in the hands (or feet) and not least: (EHX: HolyGrail, Boss : RV5, Eventide Space), but I sincerely think that this is one of the best, if not the best, for the use and quality sound, while stereo please, and there This is "Grand" is very "Great". The "Space" is in my opinion the only real rival to the Strymon, but a bit more complicated to use (100 presets anyway), a little colder ( 4.5 degrees -), is a bit more expensive (200 euros). There's not much I like it, it's fluid, warm, efficient (good talkin Reverb) and with the switch Favorite (handy), two for the price of reverbs 2.Bah yes if you talk the price it's true that this is not to Strymon, takes between 250 and 280 in the Family Euros.Mais Strymon I have already : Orbit (Flanger), and Lex (RI) equally successful as the other one. So in conclusion, even if it means making a choice, I remake exactly the same, without hesitation.

    Everything has been said previously.

    I especially took to the effect "shimmer" which seems rather successful.

    Operation is simple when one masters all combinations of possible sounds.
    No need for manual because everything is intuitive, one ear will enable to choose the correct sound.

    Operation is simple when one masters all combinations of possible sounds.
    No need for manual because everything is intuitive, one ear will enable to choose the correct sound.

    SOUND QUALITY

    The quality is extraordinary effects, some pedals are equivalent.
    It's really tailored to my use that is hovering sounds with all the pedals I have on hand.
    I use it with my suhr, my tom anderson and I admit it sounds whatever happens without distorting the sound quality of his guitar.

    OVERALL OPINION

    I've had it about a year, it rings of hell, the quality is really unparalleled Strymon (that's why I have 5 pedals brand: timeline, ola, lex, el Capistan and the famous blue sky).
    It fits really well with my other pedals (Strymon - suhr - area 51).

    However, its use may be complicated by the number of possibilities, for those looking for a nice reverb without taking the head, it is best to take a pedal with fewer sélecteur.Cependant, if you want a pedal with his really versatile, I advise you.

    I do not think I separate myself from this pedal, however I hesitated with the eventide space is really nice too, but the price made me choose quickly ...

    I think the value for money is very good even if the pedal is worth about € 280. This is a big hit but a visit worthwhile.
    With experience, I would resume without hesitation.
    Clearly, if you're a fan of reverb, you lean on this model is undoubtedly high performance and a huge qualité.Je did not put 10 in each section because I think even if she is, perfection n does not exist.

    Nice small pedal with 3 types of reverb with 3 modes each, which brings us to a total of ... 9 sounds possible!
    Add to that two knobs of filters (LP and HP) to modulate the whole, and a pre-delay setting the start of the reverb.
    The stereo is standard (at that level, it seems normal), and it has a small button "favorite" to save a preset.

    UTILIZATION

    The Blusky is very easy to use provided that we know a little how to walk this kind of effect.
    Its shape is a real pleasure and, not least, we do not get lost in the settings too sharp. It's not totally plug and play, but we found it very quickly!

    I regret two points (and "regret" is a bit strong a word).
    The single "Favorite". A second small button would not have been too! It allowed, for example,
    Mega-reverb of the death of 60 seconds in a preset
    Reverb-shorter to magnify the sound preset 2
    Reverb-intermediate in its base.
    Strymon offers a kind of extension with a pedal that provide an additional preset, but it causes a significant additional cost!

    The second point is a bit annoying for those who travel a lot.
    I do not know if it's due to my model where if it's "normal", but the food landed a little too often. Let me explain.
    When I plug the AC power supply jack on the base, this one does not conduct current all the time. A slight movement somewhat imperceptibly disconnect pedal. It is then necessary to disconnect and reconnect the connection happen.

    SOUND QUALITY

    So, I will not dwell ... WOW!

    It's beautiful, it's pure, it is spatieux, it fully respects the sound that he put into it ..

    I listened to a lot of competition and it is completely buried!

    OVERALL OPINION

    So I use it for 4 months of fairly intensive ways.

    I've tried the reverb Digitech, EHX, Boss, Behringer (ouarrfff) ...

    The sound quality is the point that really stands out. No frills, just great sound.

    With experience (and money) I would go more often to see what happens in Strymon!

    SOUND QUALITY

    L for the delay as "El Capistan" is undoubtedly the best AD / DA converters on a format reverb pedals. Well above the "eventide" and other "T-Rex Room mate" and I'm talking not even EHX!
    All types of reverb are INTERESTED Submitted: flat, room (of up hall and over) and spring all three modes. And becomes a standard! We're going beyond a traditional reverb we enter the pure inception, in the pure magic. In short! We touch a little with these paintings could ... of celestial sounds.
    Personally, Bookmark (two possible sounds) I have a flat with modulation (very little decay and mix) and a flat shimmer (many decay mix 12:00). Of pure juice.

    OVERALL OPINION

    Finally, all fans of analog hard-liners, Listen Strymon you change your mind on numrique. In addition it mixes the signal with a pure bypass and also mix with the zero-there is no diffrence between the pedals and the sound ON OFF!
    The report quality price is unbeatable (almost 100 euros less than a room mate).
    Before qu'le pre Nel is on dpart, consider asking a piece of blue sky, a will open your mind!

    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.


    SOUND QUALITY

    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.


    OVERALL OPINION

    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.

    Strymon blueSkyPublished on 12/12/11 at 00:46
    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.


    UTILIZATION

    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…

    SOUND QUALITY

    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.


    OVERALL OPINION

    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.

    Superb

    (This content has been automatically translated from French)
    Format digital reverb pedal. Very good build quality, beautiful blue brushed aluminum finish.
    Stereo inputs and outputs, it can treat 2 independent mono signals.
    2 footswitches: 1 on / off true bypass + 1 to call your favorite setting, so 2 settings available in the foot.
    Note: the dry signal from the guitar is not converted to digital, avoiding degradation.
    Negative point: providing a power supply providing DC 9V 300mA

    UTILIZATION

    The settings are intuitive being many for a pedal.

    3 position switches # 1:
    - Normal (aptly named)
    - Mod (with reverb signal modulation type Chorus)
    - Schimmer (reverb signal modulation type with octave, very fun)

    3 position switches # 2:
    - Room
    - Flat
    - Spring

    Knob: Decay for the length of reverberation, Mix for the amount of processed signal from the dry signal, Predelay to delay the start of the effect,
    High Damp Low Damp and filters are highpass and lowpass for "tinting" the reverb signal.

    SOUND QUALITY

    Sound quality above all suspicion. Transparency or heat depending on settings. Everything is possible, the reverb type toilet in his cathedral, always respecting your dry signal.

    OVERALL OPINION

    I use it for 8 months, she has not left my pedalboard. Like all pedals of the same brand (I also chorus and flanger), is from my point of view what is the best format pedal sound quality and adjustability. If I lose, I bought it, I have not tried better. The only drawback is the lack of power supply.
