Not Your Dad’s Reverb – blueSky review

Posted by Ethan

Check out the in-depth review of blueSky reverb at Dinosaur Rock Guitar. The “Home for Heavy Guitar” reports that blueSky works great with high gain tones. Here are a few excerpts:

blueSky reverb“Naturally, it does a great job with cleans, but the blueSky is not just another take on vintage reverb pedals. It is a different animal, designed with higher fidelity to suit the needs of the modern players. Perhaps even more importantly here at the Home of Heavy Guitar, the blueSky may be the first reverb pedal designed to address the crunch tones of modern high gain amps – even when you run it from in front of the amp through the guitar input!”

“Along with its overall high quality, the blueSky’s two KEY selling points are that it responds well with higher gain amps, AND it provides usable, pedal-based reverb options from the guitar input jack for non-loop-equipped amps. As such, hard rock and metal players should give the Strymon blueSky a good hard look. It is perfect for these applications.”

“The blueSky is a fine example of creating something new from something old and succeeding. It does everything the manufacturer claims and adds some cool new things to the tonal palette. As with the other Strymon products I’ve seen, the build quality and components are all top notch. Overall, the Strymon blueSky reverb pedal gets five out of five stars. Nice job, Strymon.”

Gilmourish.com reviews Lex Rotary

Posted by Ethan

Lex RotaryRotating speaker cabs have been a part of David Gilmour’s sound since 1971-72. Gilmourish.com, a site devoted to Gilmour’s music, albums, tours, and gear, recently put our Lex Rotary pedal through its paces. Check out the review!

“The Lex Rotary was designed with a painstaking focus on details and the complexity of a rotary cab and look no further people – this is as close as you’ll get to fit a Leslie in a box!”

“Standing in front of the stereo setup you can hear how incredibly dynamic and sophisticated the Lex is.”

“Judging by the Strymon website they set out to create the most authentic sounding rotary simulator and in my humble opinion I think they’ve done it. Highly recommended!”
