Nerding out with TimeLine and Roland Juno-6

Posted by Ethan

Hey everyone… You may know me as the Strymon marketing guy, but i’m also a guy that spends way too much time writing songs, making videos, and nerding out with music gear. This weekend I was busy working on new song ideas, and decided to put together a quick demo of what I was working on. In this video I’m running my Roland Juno-6 into TimeLine. Hope you dig it.

New Strymon sign!

Posted by Ethan

After a couple weeks of unpacking boxes, we’re finally settling into our new shop, right down the street from our old office. We’re excited to be in our new digs and wanted to put together a sweet sign to greet everyone. Here it is, courtesy of One of a Sign. Dave found these sweet LED lights that are sold in strips and wired them up behind the sign. Aside from fighting over what color to set the LEDs, it’s been a nice addition to our new place.

Steve Lukather

Posted by Ethan

Steve Lukather, session and touring guitarist extraordinaire, is currently touring Europe and rocking our bluesky Reverberator and Lex Rotary on his touring pedalboard. He recently sent us a couple photos of his setup.

And here are a few photos taken last year, when Terry and I visited Steve while he tracked guitar for his latest album. He used Ola chorus & vibrato, Brigadier delay and blueSky reverberator.

Steve Lukather is an American guitarist, singer, songwriter, arranger, and record producer best known for his work with the rock band Toto. Lukather has played with many artists, released several solo albums, and worked as a composer, arranger, and session guitarist on more than 1,500 albums. And he totally shreds!

Recently he purchased an El Capistan to replace his old tube tape echos. He also added a Brigadier, blueSky, and TimeLine to his pedalboard. Here’s what he had to say:

“I am extremely pleased with the musicality, sound, design and build quality of Strymon pedals. Awesome! It’s been a long time since I’ve felt I’m making a large leap up in sound and features when making a new touring/recording pedalboard.”

“Timeline is FANTASTIC! It has the mojo, features and fidelity I have always wanted, finally in one box! It truly is the tool I have been wishing I could have for years.”

In addition to his time playing and recording with Chris Issak, Hershel has found time to perform and play with many other artists including Art Alexakis (Everclear), Junior Brown, James Burton (Elvis Presley), Glen Campbell, Mike Clark (Herbie Hancock), Shawn Colvin, Dick Dale, Bo Diddley, Gloria Estefan, Stan Getz, Dizzy Gillespie, Emmylou Harris, Warren Haynes (Gov’t Mule, Allman Bros.), Lisa Loeb, Los Angeles Philharmonic, Stevie Nicks (Fleetwood Mac), Joe Pass, Bonnie Raitt, Rufus Reid, Leann Rimes, Ritchie Sambora (Bon Jovi), Brian Setzer, Paul Stanley (Kiss), Waddy Wachtel, DB Walker, Joe Walsh (Eagles), Trisha Yearwood and Dweezil Zappa, among many others.
