About TimeLine:

When we decided to create a studio-class stereo delay effects pedal, we knew we must go well beyond what has been done in the past. We spent months locked up in the Strymon sound design labs with an intense focus on dreaming up the most lush, creative, and musically inspirational delay effects ever heard.

About Ola:

When we set out to design Ola dBucket Chorus and Vibrato, we knew that we wanted to take a high-performance SHARC DSP and dedicate all of it’s horsepower to doing one thing—providing the most lush and organic chorus and vibrato sounds ever heard.

About blueSky:

The philosophy behind our blueSky Reverberator is simple—take a ridiculously powerful SHARC DSP and dedicate it to doing one thing only: producing the most lush, majestic and stunning reverbs ever.

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!

Yosuke Onuma – one of Japan’s top jazz guitarists

Posted by Ethan

 
We recently heard from Yosuke Onuma, one of Japan’s foremost jazz guitarists. He’s been using blueSky Reverberator and Ola Chorus & Vibrato, and they’ve found a permanent home on his pedal board.

In the past he’s used rack reverbs running through the engineer’s soundboard. He jumped at the chance to switch to blueSky.

“blueSky sounds so good! And it’s so easy to use.”

Yosuke is quickly becoming known around the world as one of the leaders of the next generation of jazz guitarists. He’s released several highly-acclaimed albums and will certainly continue to amaze audiences with his abilities and unique finger-picking style.

Premier Guitar review of Brigadier, Orbit, Ola and blueSky

Posted by Ethan

Have you seen the Premier Guitar review of Brigadier, Orbit, Ola and blueSky? Check it out here. Here are a few quotes from the review!


“The Blue Sky Reverberator is a gem—a toneshaping masterpiece.”

 


“There are lots of analog delay modelers on the market, but most of them don’t provide the feel of playing a true analog delay. The Brigadier nails it.”

 


“Any control [on Orbit] can be assigned to the expression pedal, which opens up the possibilities for morphing from subdued to wild to even further.”

 


“If there’s a pedal in the Strymon line that really showcases how in tune the company is with stellar products of yesteryear, it’s the Ola.”
