Last year (after several years of playing the guitar) I finally bought my first effect pedals: the Walrus Audio Slö, the Earthquaker Devices Westwood and the Ditto looper. I mostly listen to minimal, indie and ambient and therefore, I would love to create such sounds myself. But unfortunately, I have not made up my mind about a specific sound.Continue reading “Which pedal should I get?”
The Strymon Deco is a relatively pedalboard-friendly effect pedal, that hardly can be characterized as a classical delay pedal. Underneath the optical shy designed surface, you will find the sound of two tape decks. Continue reading “Strymon Deco”
The Strymon Brigadier is a relatively pedalboard-friendly dbucket digital delay. It comes around in the Strymon-typical gentle, but pleasing design and offers, depending on the respective mode up to 5000ms of maximum delay time. Continue reading “Strymon Brigadier”
This is a comparison of the Strymon Brigadier with the MXR Carbon Copy Deluxe. The MXR Carbon Copy Deluxe is by now a modern classic and besides the modulation, you can also choose between a dark and a bright setting. Therefore, I decided to compare these two green digital delay pedals.
The Strymon El Capistan is a relatively pedalboard-friendly tape echo emulation. Actually, it is THE tape echo emulation that sets the standards for all other tape echo emulations. Continue reading “Strymon El Capistan”
This is a comparison of the Strymon Brigadier with the Source Audio Nemesis. The Source Audio Nemesis is, as well as the Brigadier, able to emulate numerous analog delay sounds. For it has about the same size, I decided to compare these two digital delays.
This is a comparison of the Strymon Brigadier with the Electro Harmonix Deluxe Memory Man. The Electro Harmonix Deluxe Memory Man is one of the brightest analog delays with a maximum delay time of up to 550ms. Therefore, I choose the medium setting of the Brigadier, which emulates an analog delay with two ICs. Additionally, I turned the tone pot a bit further to create a similar bright sound.
This is a comparison of the Ibanez AD9 and the Boss DM-2 with the Strymon Brigadier. The Ibanez AD9 and the Boss DM-2 are two of the first analog delays. They provide a maximum delay time of about 300ms and a unique kind of oscillation. For this comparison, choose the short setting for the Brigadier, because, it emulates an analog delay with one IC. Thereby, the Brigadier gets close to the sound of the AD9 and the DM-2.
Strymon calls the NightSky a time-warped reverberator which includes more functions than a usual reberb pedal. The new type of setting options is also innovative and is an invitation for experimentation.
This is the first part of a two-part review of the Strymon NightSky. In the first part you will learn all about the construction and the extensive functions of the NightSky, while the second part will be dedicated to the sound of this extraordinary pedal.
