SonicPulverizer's review"Two for one"

Strymon Flint
The Strymon Flint was inspired by the traditional pairing of onboard reverb and tremolo effects in early tube amps. The Flint features two sides for each effect, each with three modes to toggle between. For tremolo, you have the '61 harmonic setting, the '63 tube setting, and the '65 photocell setting. For the reverb side you have sounds from the following modes: 60's (spring), 70's (plate), and 80's (hall). Each effect has separate controls and can be activated individually of one another. Holding both bypass switches, toggles secondary functionality of the controls which include boost/cut controls for each side of the effects, tap subdivision, and effects order.

UTILIZATION

The Input/Output section of the Strymon is rather versatile. An EXP input can accomodate an expression pedal, tap tempo, or one of strymon's favorite pedals--which recalls a previous arrangement. A selectable TRS stereo input allows use with stereo applications. The power is standard 9v. The unit's build quality is exceptional and rugged.

SOUND QUALITY

The Flint's sound is second to none. The tremolo sounds are very useable with the speed knob going to a lower threshold than other tremolo effects. Very mellow and pleasant. The harmonic trem was my favorite of the three for its unique flavor. I found the reverb to be no slouch, performing just as splendidly as Strymon's dedicated blue sky reverberator. The ability to configure an expression pedal with any specific control can lead to very interesting results.Having used the pedal through a variety of amps, I was pleased with the flints sound both in front of amps for a more mangled sound and in a given amp's loop as well.

OVERALL OPINION

The Strymon flint is another excellent, studio-quality offering from the brand. I have never been a fan of Tremolo effects, but the flint's capacity for subtlety charmed me, as well as it's over the top sound quality. The effect is competitively priced against other boutique tremolos alone, let alone for a two-in-one arrangement such as this. Awesome product.

Strymon Flint
Really clean, wide spectrum see infinite reverb, or very short and narrow ...

A reproach, however: If the knob "mix" is not to 12pm, and the effect is a bit poor ...

Easy and awesome it delighted me ...

Very good stuff ... I do not think about me turn to another pedal ..

UTILIZATION

The battery is consumed in 3 hours ... transformer required (like most reverb for that matter).
It is true that the "mix" very driven beyond 12 will color a little more sound of the amp .. but it suits me anyway.
The tremolo section (comprehensive) is a smaller, but an effect of its own.

SOUND QUALITY

No noise even at high volume .. really clean.

OVERALL OPINION

Just Perfect ...

Strymon Flint
Pedal tremolo and reverb, analog.

UTILIZATION

Very easy to use, although I do not search ais advanced settings.
I plug rotates three button and it works perfect for me.

SOUND QUALITY

Level sound quality is top! I usually pedals, I spent a good amount and this one, I would keep! It is not quite neutral, it adds a slight grain that is really beautiful, I'm a fan.

OVERALL OPINION

The price is high but perfectly justified, nothing to do with Boss and MXR in my opinion, it is really a cut above. I remake this NIOHC without hesitation.

Strymon Flint
Effect pedal format combining reverb and tremolo.

For technical specifications I return to the site (Plus I know nothing).

UTILIZATION

At first glance it is said that it is stupid.

For tremolo:
- 1 switch on / off
- 1 Intensity knob
- 1 knob Speed
- 1 switch that allows you to choose 3 types of tremolo ranging from the vintage to the most modern

For the reverb:
- 1 switch on / off
- 1 knob used to assay the decay length of the reverb
- 1 Colour knob that goes from a "dark" reverb "clear"
- 1 knob mix effect
- 1 switch that lets you choose three reverb types ranging from the vintage to the most modern.

The where it gets a bit more complicated (see frankly sucks) are "secondary" settings ... To get there you must press the switch at the same time 2.

And then it becomes a mess for my little brain.

The Intensity knob becomes "Tremolo boost / cut", the speed knob becomes "Tap Division", the mix knob reverb becomes "reverb cut / boost) and the Decay knob allows you to change the order of the two effects.

I'm sure it will seem clear to some but for me at all. So I tried it once and that's it.

SOUND QUALITY

It is on this point that the Strymon gum all the little defects configuration.

The sounds are simply splendid.
All exploitable we love the vintage sound to hyper current palette runs the gamut.

I bought it because my amp does not have reverb.
And even those who I use the Strymon

OVERALL OPINION

While it is true that this is not given, it is not easy to use but the sounds that come out of this pedal are magical and ultimately that is what is asked.
