A match made in heaven, some things are just meant to be together, and tremolo and reverb effects are one such combination. The effects were first showcased as built-in additions in the ‘60s, and where quickly picked up guitarists; making their way into many records and across genres, from surf to blues, and the pairing continue to gain ground in today’s indie rock scene.
The Strymon Flint Tremolo and Reverb takes its inspiration from the tremolos found in these early amps, and reverbs found in amps from the ‘60s through to the ‘70s and ‘80s. The circuitry from favoured amplifiers have been strenuously studied and recreated with hand-crafted algorithms and by utilising the pedal’s powerful SHARC DSP to full affect.

3 Tremolos/3 Reverbs
The result of all this hard work and the high quality components used, is an incredible pedal that brings you back to the past, with hypnotic vintage amp tremolos and classic reverbs. The tremolo section is comprised of: '61 Harmonic Tremolo, '63 Power Tube Tremolo, and '65 Photocell Tremolo, while the reverbs include: '60s Spring Tank Reverb, '70s Electronic Plate Reverb, and '80s Hall Rack Reverb.
Each of the tremolos and reverbs above have very distinctive sounds and can be used independently or you combine any two to create the sounds that suit you, thanks to the individual bypass switches. Furthermore the pedal is stacked with parameters to really sculpt your tone.
9-Knob Tremolo and Reverb Machine
The Strymon Flint Tremolo and Reverb provides more control over its effects than is first apparent. The five visible parameters include: Intensity and Speed controls for the tremolos, and Decay, Color, and Mix for adjusting and shaping the reverbs.
These are joined by a further four ‘hidden’ knobs, as four of the control knobs above have dual functions to give you extended tweaking options. These options are: Tremolo Boost/Cut, Reverb Boost/Cut, Effect Order, and Tap Subdivision. Of course, with true bypass, you can turn both effects off to get back to your dry tone.
Multi-Functional Expression Pedal Input
The most obvious use for this input would be to connect an expression pedal, to gain hands-free control over whichever of the front panel’s parameters that you assign to it, but it can do more. An alternative use would be to hook up an external tap switch, to make on-the-fly tremolo speed alterations. Another alternative would be to connect Strymon’s Favourite switch, which allows you to store and recall a favourite preset.
