Yes. Once you adjust the secondary function settings on your Strymon pedal they will not change after powering down your pedal until you manually change them again.
The input on Flint can be set for either mono input or TRS stereo input. Flint ships in mono configuration from the factory. Here’s how to adjust this configuration.
Remove the back cover of your pedal.
On the left side of the circuit board, you’ll see a jumper that can be set in two positions. Place the jumper on the left 2 pins for TRS stereo input. Place the jumper on the right 2 pins for mono input.
In order to use the TRS stereo input, you’ll need a TRS stereo input adapter like the one shown below. You can purchase one here.
The Strymon TAP Favorite switch is the perfect TAP tempo switch for TimeLine, Mobius, or Flint. Please visit the TAP Favorite Product Page on our website for more information.
If you’d prefer to go with another external TAP tempo switch, we can’t recommend a specific one for you but, as long as the switch is designed with a momentary, single pole, double throw (SPDT) type switch that switches the TIP between the SLEEVE (ground or 0VDC) to the RING (5VDC) it should work fine.
If you are unsure whether or not your TAP tempo switch provides these specs we kindly ask that you please contact the manufacturer of that switch for more information.
If you’re using just the Reverb, your dry path is analog. This means that the mix occurs in analog, your dry signal has zero latency and it’s not converted to digital.
When the Tremolo is engaged, the entire signal is effected by the Tremolo, so there is no dry path in that case.
NOTE: The EXP jack is set up to use an Expression pedal by default.
To set up your Strymon pedal to use a Favorite Switch, follow the steps below.
1. Power down your Strymon pedal.
2. Configure pedal and power on.
Pedals with toggle Switches – Set both toggle switches to the MIDDLE position. While holding down both footswitches, power up your pedal.
Pedals without toggle switches – While holding both footswitches, power up your pedal, Continue holding footswitches and turn the topmost left knob fully clockwise.
3. Let go of TAP and BYPASS.
Your pedal has now been configured to use the Favorite Switch.
All Strymon pedals sold within North America (except OB.1) include a 9VDC 660mA power supply. OB.1 includes a 9V battery.
We recommend a power supply that provides 9VDC (center negative) at a minimum of 250mA.
Do not subject your Strymon pedal to any voltage above 9V. Doing so will damage your pedal and void your warranty.
All pedals (except TimeLine):
You can, but please take these precautions:
First, make sure the dip switch on the bottom of your Pedal Power is set to the NORMAL (9V) position. Do not subject your Strymon pedal to any voltage above 9V. Doing so will damage your pedal and void your warranty.
El Capistan, Brigadier, blueSky, Lex, Ola, and Orbit, require a minimum of 250mA. You will need to use output 5 or 6 on your Pedal Power 2+. OB.1 requires 20mA, so you can use outlets 1 through 4. Make sure to use the Pedal Power 2+, the original Pedal Power 2 does not provide enough mA.
A better solution would be to use the Voodoo Lab Pedal Power Digital power supply which offers several 9V DC high current output outlets.
We don’t recommend using daisy chain power supplies. Ground loops are commonly caused when using a daisy chain power cable to power multiple pedals. This creates a ground loop between every pedal in the daisy chain. Ground loops allow stray magnetic fields to introduce hum into your signal path.
If the only type of effect you use is distortion you may not have (or hear) the ill effects. But, if you have modulation and delay pedals the likelihood of ground loops wreaking havoc on your signal is high.
If you don’t plan on using your Strymon power supply, we recommend an isolated power supply. The Voodoo Labs Pedal Power Digital and Iso-5 are some examples of cost effective, multiple output isolated power supplies. An isolated supply works by using a transformer (or multiple transformers) to keep every power outlet completely electrically isolated.
No. The reverbs in Flint are completely different than those in blueSky, in philosophy, the way they were designed, and how they sound. The goal of each Flint reverb was to capture the sound of an era, whereas blueSky reverbs are our take on awesome fidelity with ultimate flexibility.
All Strymon products are crafted with love in the USA, right in the Los Angeles, California area.
blueSky, Brigadier, El Capistan, Flint, Lex, OB.1, Ola, and Orbit are all 4.5″ deep x 4″ wide x 1.75″ tall.
