Check out the in-depth review of blueSky reverb at Dinosaur Rock Guitar. The “Home for Heavy Guitar” reports that blueSky works great with high gain tones. Here are a few excerpts:
“Naturally, it does a great job with cleans, but the blueSky is not just another take on vintage reverb pedals. It is a different animal, designed with higher fidelity to suit the needs of the modern players. Perhaps even more importantly here at the Home of Heavy Guitar, the blueSky may be the first reverb pedal designed to address the crunch tones of modern high gain amps – even when you run it from in front of the amp through the guitar input!”
“Along with its overall high quality, the blueSky’s two KEY selling points are that it responds well with higher gain amps, AND it provides usable, pedal-based reverb options from the guitar input jack for non-loop-equipped amps. As such, hard rock and metal players should give the Strymon blueSky a good hard look. It is perfect for these applications.”
“The blueSky is a fine example of creating something new from something old and succeeding. It does everything the manufacturer claims and adds some cool new things to the tonal palette. As with the other Strymon products I’ve seen, the build quality and components are all top notch. Overall, the Strymon blueSky reverb pedal gets five out of five stars. Nice job, Strymon.”

Just to let you know: The Blue Sky is also fantastic for lead vocals, not just for guitars. I just did a gig at a place where I play frequently and I was told by two people from the audience, that I sounded especially good tonight. I didn’t sing any different than I normally do, but the beautiful reverb made the difference! Yeah, I’m going to be rich and famous thanks to the Strymon Blue Skly!!! 🙂
As a dad I won’t be considering this pedal then ….
