Beyond Vintage.

Strymon Iridium amp & cab IR

The classics: Fender® Deluxe Reverb, Vox® AC30TB, and the Marshall® Plexi. Not only does Iridium consistently give you the sound and feel of each of these amps (in perfect running condition with perfect reliability), we’ve hot-rodded each amp to provide an extended range of tonal options beyond what was available from the original designs. That means substantial extra gain on tap for the Chime (based on AC30) and Punch (based on Plexi) amps, and the ability to scoop or push the mids on the Round amp (based on Deluxe Reverb). Whatever tone the recording calls for, Iridium can deliver.
