The Strymon blueSky Reverberator may well be the last reverb pedal you buy, as it’s built to do one thing; provide exceptionally high-quality reverb in a package that belies its price. This pedal is simple enough for the layman to get hands-on enjoyment straight out of the box but its real charm comes through when you get an experienced musician behind the knobs, as it offers incredible control over a variety of parameters, allowing you to find the ‘verbs you’ve always dreamed.
The Blue Sky Reverberator is a gem — a toneshaping masterpiece.- Premier Guitar
Incredibly Powerful SHARC DSP
The centre piece of the Strymon blue Sky Reverberator, and crafting all the pedal’s luscious, and quite frankly stunning, reverbs is the incredibly powerful SHARC DSP, which has been pushed hard to utilise every ounce of processing power it is capable of. The result is a pedal that blurs the line between normal pedals and their more complex studio rack counterparts.
9 Reverb Experiences – Countless Possibilities
A total of nine reverbs are accessible from the Strymon blueSky Reverberator Pedal’s Mode and Type switches. The three Types of reverb available are the all-hand-crafted Plate, Room and Spring, and three Modes are available with each of these reverb algorithms, giving you extremely versatile options. These Modes are: Normal, Mod and Shimmer.
Shaping Your Reverb
Along with the Type and Mode options, the Strymon blueSky Reverberator also has a five tone shaping options, which allow for absolute control over each part of your reverb, including reflection times; giving you the capability to get the tone in your mind out of your amp. These options include: Decay, Mix, Pre-Delay, Low Damp, and High-Damp. There is also a +/-3dB Boost/Cut accessible by holding Tap and Bypass at the same time, while rotating the Mix knob.
In addition to these tone shaping options, you also have a Bypass switch, for taking the reverb out of your effects chain with zero latency. There is also a Favourite button, which allows you to instantly recall a previously created reverb.
Exceptional Audio Quality

Also of note is the unit’s 20Hz to 20kHz frequency response and a +8dBu maximum input level that is more than capable of handling instrument and line signals. The unit is powered with a standard 9V DC supply and offers stereo inputs and outputs.
