Into The Clouds…And Beyond

Sometimes a single pedal can be transformative, allowing your tone to bloom in a way that draws music out of you effortlessly and keeps you engaged for hours on end.

The simple look and feel of Cloudburst belies the power underneath the hood, because it produces some of the most gorgeous ambient reverb tones and soundscapes that you’ve ever heard out of a guitar reverb pedal – there’s literally nothing else quite like it.

Instant Ambient Bliss

Coupled with the powerful ambience processing is a brand-new Ensemble engine, capable of creating pads and soundscapes that follow your playing organically – so if you change pickups or play in a different place on the neck you get different results.

It’s unlike anything you’ve ever heard or played before, all wrapped in a smaller form factor that still manages to house full stereo I/O, TRS MIDI and USB-C connectors on the back panel. Prepare to be inspired!

Celestial String Section

Cloudburst’s Ensemble switch reveals a whole new world of captivating sounds never previously heard from a reverb pedal.

Use it subtly to add harmonically rich and otherworldly dimensions to your ambient reverb soundscapes, or use it liberally to hear a lush synthesized string section swell under your guitar playing.

Ensemble reacts to your entire guitar signal in an organic and musical way, delivering a richly responsive and uniquely inspiring playing experience.

From Small Rooms to Infinite Spaces

Cloudburst gives you multiple reverb experiences, with beautifully-tuned and natural small spaces at one end of the Decay knob and vast, expansive atmospheres at the other.

As you turn the Decay control numerous internal parameters are automatically adjusted, allowing this ambient reverb pedal to produce outstanding studio-quality spaces of any size at the turn of a single knob.

Compact With No Compromises

All of the premium components, sound quality and road-worthiness you expect from a Strymon reverb pedal are here in Cloudburst’s new compact format.

Featuring unbeatable ease of use and some of the finest reverb sounds we’ve ever created, Cloudburst could easily be the only reverb pedal you need on your pedalboard.

Controls & Routing

Hover over the interactive dots to learn more about Cloudburst’s knobs, switches, and inputs/outputs.

Tap on the interactive buttons (+) to learn more about Cloudburst’s knobs, switches, and inputs/outputs.

Sets the amount of time before the reverberated signal appears.

For the most natural results, use lower MIX settings when using higher PRE-DELAY.


Controls the modulation of the reverb delay lines to create a variety of  lush effects.

Turning clockwise increases modulation depth for the first half of the range. Continuing to turn past half increases the speed of the modulation.

Controls the duration of the reverberated signal’s decay.

Lower settings reduce the size of the reverberated space.


Controls the reverb mix from full dry at minimum to full wet at maximum.

A 50/50 mix occurs at approximately 3 o’clock on the knob, and additional power-up options allow for kill-dry (for use in parallel effects loops) and an analog thru dry path.


Sets the amount of Ensemble harmonics added to the reverb input:

Off – No Ensemble effect

mp – A medium amount of Ensemble for a subtle enhancement

forte – Maximum Ensemble effect creating a lush and orchestral soundscape

Engages and bypasses effect. RED LED indicates the effect is engaged.

Adjusts the high-end content of the reverb.

Lower settings create darker, warmer reverberation. Higher settings are bright and crisp.

Also affects the presence of the Ensemble effect.


High impedance, ultra low-noise, discrete Class A JFET preamp input.

TRS adapter cable required for stereo input signal (not included).

Low impedance stereo TRS output. Use TS cable for mono output or TRS for stereo output.

Multifunction communication jack for external control of Cloudburst’s features and functions. Use a standard TRS expression pedal for continuous control over the knobs of the pedal (default setting).

Can be set to operate in one of five modes: Expression Pedal, Favorite, Freeze, Infinite, or MIDI Mode. See User Manual for details.

Use a power supply with the following rating: 2.1mm, 9VDC, center negative, 250mA minimum. Power supply NOT included.

mono: mono input, mono output

mono stereo: mono input, stereo output

stereo: stereo input, stereo output

NOTE: Stereo operation requires a TRS adapter or cable.
