From Strymon –
“The philosophy behind our Blue Sky 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 Blue Sky. We squeezed every last drop of processing power available.
Whether you’re a classic spring reverb fan or a studio rack aficionado, you’ll find your mojo here. Blue Sky provides three different reverb types, each with three modes, for a total of nine completely unique reverb experiences. Blue Sky even delivers an extremely versatile plate reverb, a rarity for a stompbox pedal. A full pre-delay and damping section provide deep reverb tone shaping. Add the mod and shimmer modes and you’re in store for unending reverb bliss. Couple that with 24-bit 96kHz converters and 115dB typical signal to noise, Blue Sky is equally at home on top of a studio console as it is in front of a tube amp.”
The full pre-delay and damping section let you shape the tone of your reverbs, and 115dB signal-to-noise ratio plus 24-bit 06kHz converters make this reverb pedal appropriate for use in the recording studio and onstage. Use the Normal mode when you want to experience standard plate, room and spring reverb, or shift into Mod mode to add blissfully beautiful modulation to your choice of reverb. When you choose Shimmer mode, you get regenerative pitch shifting that lifts your sound into the stratosphere. Combine Shimmer mode with plate reverb to shift your pitch up an octave, or go for the Shimmer in Room and Spring reverb to generate a pitch shift of an octave plus a fifth.
- Hand crafted, computationally intense Plate, Room and Spring algorithms
- Normal, Mod and Shimmer modes per algorithm for extremely versatile reverb options
- High Damp and Low Damp controls for super-flexible reverb tone shaping
- Mod mode for a beautifully modulated spring, room or plate reverb
- Shimmer mode for infinite pitch effects 'in the tank'
- Dedicated Pre-Delay control to fine tune reflection times
This unit is brand new. It was bought for use at one gig, and was never actually used. So it is unused, never been plugged in, sitting in its box with all the paperwork etc at a nice discount from new RRP or street price.
Strymon has been the premier specialist reverb pedal company worldwide for some time now, and this killer Blue Sky unit continues in building the company’s reputation for leading the way in professional quality audio effects for guitarists.
