Strymon BlueSky V2 Compact Reverberator Pedal
The pedal that revolutionized compact reverb pedals has evolved. Plug into blueSky for the most lush, majestic reverbs imaginable. Transform a single note or chord into vast sonic atmospheres with impossibly gorgeous, incredibly long reverb tails. Hear the inspiring splash of an upgraded spring algorithm dripping with vintage vibe. Lose track of time and space as you interact with deep and expansive new Shimmer sounds never heard anywhere before.
Whether you’re a classic spring reverb fan, a studio rack aficionado, or an ambient soundscape creator searching for new sonic textures, the sounds you are looking for are here.
blueSky provides three different reverb types: plate, room, and spring, and each type can produce everything from stunning realism to expanded sounds far beyond what would be physically possible, while always remaining musical and beautiful.
Intuitive and powerful tone shaping controls allow you to easily dial in an endless variety of inspiring sounds. And with ultra low noise, high performance 24-bit 96kHz A/D and D/A converters and a 20Hz to 20kHz frequency response, blueSky is equally at home on top of a studio console or in front of a tube amp.
All New Features.
Our second generation blueSky offers true studio quality reverbs in a compact pedal, and adds significant new features, incorporating technological advancements, hardware improvements and design enhancements to give you additional flexibility, power, and ease of use on stage and in the studio.
A dedicated Shimmer knob and new Shimmer behaviors yield an inspiring variety of immersive new sounds.
A new Mod switch allows you to select the modulation depth for each reverb type.
A beautiful new Spring algorithm creates extraordinary vintage spring reverb sounds, as well as expanded spring textures and hauntingly unique interactions with an octave-down Shimmer.
A premium analog JFET input circuit ensures superb responsiveness to your playing, and you can select mono or stereo input with the flick of a rear panel switch.
In addition, you can now control blueSky with an expression pedal or MultiSwitch Plus.
All this, plus a new ARM DSP chip provides more processing power for every sonic nuance, with less energy consumption on your pedalboard.
Full MIDI implementation allows you to control just about every knob, switch, and setting remotely via the EXP/MIDI jack or USB.
And you can save and recall all the new sounds you create via 300 onboard MIDI preset locations.
Take To The Skies. blueSky features three reverb types, each with their own distinct flavor for every reverb application you may need. A high-quality vintage plate reverb gives you the smooth, crisp reverberations heard on classic records from the 60s and 70s. A versatile room reverb places your tone in cozy small rooms, massive arenas, and everywhere in between. Our splashy spring reverb, a faithful recreation of the best vintage spring reverb circuits we could find, instantly adds character and retro mojo to any signal.
