A chorus of praise for Mobius!

Posted by Ethan

Mobius modulation pedalThe reviews for Mobius have been rolling in, and we’re very excited about what everyone has been saying!

Featuring 12 different types of modulations – chorus, flanger, phaser, a flexible rotary effect and more – “the amount of high-quality effects [Mobius] crams inside is amazing,” writes guitar blog GuitarNoize.com.

Within each modulation type lays a wealth of mod effects that Premier Guitar magazine describes as “shockingly accurate.”Premier Guitar, The Deli, Guitar Noize, Sound on Sound magazine The “sonic undulations” of the rotary effect, PG continued, are “deep and complex, and at times sound impossibly real.” We’re deeply honored to have received the Premier Guitar “Premier Gear” award, which the magazine bestowed upon Mobius earlier this year.

In its popular audio blog, The Deli magazine is “extremely excited” about Mobius’ release. It calls the mod pedal “super diverse” thanks to its wide variety of classic mod effects including “everything from lush choruses to pulsating tremolo as well as unlikely additions.”

In a shootout versus some classic mod pedals, Mobius won Sound On Sound magazine’s praises for its “clarity, warmth, smoothness and depth.” With “sounds as glorious as its tech-spec suggests,” Mobius “more than held its own” against its predecessors. SOS ranks Mobius “among the best [mod pedals] of its type.”

Our friends at Premier Guitar think “it’s getting harder to surprise folks with how good Strymon pedals sound,” which makes us really happy. Sound On Sound noted that we’ve “quickly gained a loyal following” in the three years since we began making pedals. And The Deli made us blush when they called us “one of the sickest companies making stompboxes right now.” Thanks, guys, we really appreciate it! :)




Mobius receives the Premier Gear award!

Posted by Ethan

Mobius - Premier Gear awardWe just read Premier Guitar magazine’s review of our new Mobius modulation— and we we’re extremely excited to announce that Mobius has received their coveted Premier Gear award!

Here’s what they had to say:

“The Mobius is a pedal of very deep capabilities that exponentially widens the sound potential of a pedalboard, opens up studio and production possibilities, and can inspire whole tunes.”

“The sonic undulations are deep and complex, and at times sound impossibly real—to the point of being confounding. Just how is a 4′ tall Leslie with wildly spinning drum and horn speakers hiding behind that practice amp?”

“The quality of the Mobius is superb. It’s dead silent—quiet enough to use for outboard mix buss duties. And it’s difficult to imagine a modulation unit doing much more as capably as the Mobius does.”

“If you’re an incurable studio tinkerer, session expert, or a gigging guitarist who plays in a classic rock cover band one night and a post-rock project the next, the Mobius gives you just about every modulation weapon you could ever need.”

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!
