  1. Hi Strymon team!

    First of all compliments for the great pedals!
    I own 3 strymon pedals, the Flint, the Ola and the timeline.
    For a while I am searching for the 80′ tri chorus sound from the dytronics CS-5 19″ unit.
    Fulltone is remaking this unit called “that 80’s rack chorus”
    Is it possible for Strymon to program this exact sound into a new pedal?
    The multi chorus setting from my Ola comes close but is not the exact sound.

    Best regards,
    Niels Juursema

    I love your vision, products, design, demo videos, demo video guy with the Taylor Electric that plays lots of “sus” triads…

    I’m too tired at the moment to conjure a clever question. Today my wife and I discovered we are having twin baby girls! Very excited. A little freaked out to know that we will be parents for the very 1st time this Oct (due date is Nov 13, but she will most likely deliver in mid Oct).
    I also received an email this evening, I am accepted to Wayne State University in Detroit, MI. I’m so excitrd. I’ll be attending the fall semester and applying for the bachelor of radiologic technology program.
    Also, I stumbled on a duesenberg fullerton cc in April. This guitar was made with me in mind. The best playing/ looking/ sounding es335 EVAH!
    Keep doing what you do Strymers.

    With lerve,

  5. brian wendt says:

    Hey everybody!
    Ok I LOVE all your pedals! I wish I just had the chance to play with any of your pedals but I will probably never get that chance because I can’t afford one. Will there be any pedals that you guys will be making for the lower class working guitar player. If so that would be amazing! Thanks for everything you guys do and God bless!

  6. Shane McCarter says:

    Are you guys hiring? I can send in my resume! I am prepared to do anything!

  7. james says:

    How many times did the batmobile catch a flat?

  8. Carl says:

    John…Help out a bass player here, can you guys posts some videos demonstrating the Strymon line with a bass.
    Thanks
    Carl

  9. Pete says:

    Hey guys,

    It might not get as much traffic, but if you can do the AMA in /r/guitarpedals or stop by and show the sub some love sometime that would be great!

    Thanks!

  10. Angela says:

    We need to do that! Just need to get John out from behind the computer :D We will work on that. Thanks.

  11. Angela says:

    Hi Shane, We don’t currently have any open positions, but never hurts to send in your resume. You can send it to info@strymon.net. Thanks :)

  12. Angela says:

    Hi Brian, We don’t usually discuss what is or isn’t in the works, but appreciate the feedback. Make sure to sign up for our newsletter, we do contests here and there and we will be having one during the Reddit AMA :D Thanks!

  13. Hugo says:

    @Nate Briggsy – It’s totally ok not to ask a question here as you have a ton of wonderful life events to look forward to. Congratulations and thanks for supporting Strymon! :)

  14. Hugo says:

    @Niels Juursema – Thanks for being a Strymon customer and for the feature request! :) We can’t make any guarantees about the development of any feature or product requests, but we do listen to our customers. Also, the effect algorithms are not necessarily designed to sound like an existing piece of gear as much as being crafted to provide you with an array of great sounds.

  15. Albert Madariaga says:

    Lex with a blend. That’s my desire. If cost were no object, I’d be splitting my signal between guitar amp and Leslie, so that’s what I’m after.

  16. Andy says:

    As more of a hands-on synth guy than guitarist, I’ve always wanted to know why the Mobius has two less control knobs that the Timeline/Bigsky?

  17. Angela says:

    Hi Andy, This is a great question for our Reddit AMA, are you going to be able to join, because would love to answer this then. Let us know :D

  18. I don’t have any Strymon pedal but I would like to have one (or more) as soon as you answer: Schematics, positioned on board over Ethan head, is it FuzzFace or ToneBender?

  19. John Fiaschetti says:

    Anything? Ok, so the EE geek/guitar player wants to know what development tool chain you use for all your software development? Do you use any advanced tools like Simulink or automatic code generation?

    And I’d love to see some of the theory and publications related to the theory behind some of the models you’ve used. Now, that’s geeky :-) .

  20. Angela says:

    Please make sure to join us on June 24th to ask that question :D Thanks!

  21. Jason says:

    Any chance we’ll get a visual editor for timeline? Please! :)

  22. jon trovati says:

    hi i bought a timeline and love if but im kind of a beginner with pedals it seems really complicated in getting the sound im looking for- I am only playing is church group doing songs from Jesus culture, hillsong, and various christian artists, and I love the ice and dbucket setting. Im trying to get the dotted 8ths figured out too so is there a print out for electronic dummies like me? yes Ive read and looked at you tube but not much luck unless i spend hours. Hey I know how bout inventing a pedal that you could plug in a song and it would give you the right settings??

  23. Hugo says:

    @jon trovati – Thanks for supporting Strymon! :) Here is a link to the full TimeLine manual for accessing all of the parameters and features of the TimeLine:

    If you have any further specific questions on using the pedal, please write us at support@strymon.net.

  24. Chris R. says:

    First of all, great work on all of your pedals! I have a couple and use them religiously. So, is there any chance you guys will release a firmware update for the timeline that will allow for a chorus effect using the dbucket algorithm by decreasing the ms delay setting allowed?

  25. Andy says:

    @Angela. I posted my question from above on the AMA. Bit disappointed it didn’t get answered. I realize there were a lots of questions, but only because there are clearly many Strymon fans. Why was there was no clear cutoff given? I think the least you guys could have done was stated a time where no new questions would be answered, but then answered the remaining ones. Not cool guys.

  26. Angela says:

    Hi Andy, We did put up a post when we stopped answering questions, though we have hopped back on and answered some more. It is very time-consuming to answer all of them, so we were trying out best to answer all the “up voted” ones. We are still periodically going back in and answering some more as we have time, which question was yours?

  27. Andy says:

    @Angela. Ethan answered my questions and some others too. My faith is restored. Many thanks and keep up the great work!

  28. John says:

    good afternoon, I would like to know if there is a way to access different banks in Mobius, without having to step on two switches at the same time. can see that with an external pedal as Tap ?? or some secret setting to start the pedal ??? I hope I expressed myself well, my writing in English language is not very good. Greetings and thanks

  29. Hugo says:

    @John – Thanks for supporting Strymon! At this time, the only way to access the different banks of presets is by pressing 2 switches on the pedal at a time. There is no other way to access the different banks on the 3 button Strymon pedals at this time. You can use MIDI access other presets directly by sending MIDI Program Change messages, however, there is no MIDI message to change banks.
