To create the Strymon Big Sky, Strymon pored over the schematics of plate reverbs, analysed algorithms of legendary digital reverbs and developed Big Sky using the latest technology so it can be both classic and highly contemporary. This results in a reverb that transforms your sound, opening the door to heavenly halls and mind bending non-linear tones, the Strymon Big Sky can transport you to some magical spaces.
While it's a commitment to only using quality components and powerful SHARC processing that give Strymon pedals a great sound, it's the art of great sound design and their musical understanding that really inspires. The Strymon Big Sky is steeped in the heritage of reverb and every one of it's reverb machines has been designed to emulate a much loved sound or to push the boundaries and allow you to create the sound of tomorrow. Further, thanks to high quality AD/DA conversion, MIDI I/O and super low latency the Big Sky can be easily integrated into any setup from studio to pedal boards big and small.
Plug into Big Sky and instantly lift your sound into the stratosphere. The world below you fades into the distance, and you're elevated into a glow of lush, glorious, radiant reverbs.
Strymon Big Sky Multi Reverb Pedal:
300 Built-In Presets
BigSky gives you the option to instantly save and recall up to 300 of your own presets. Easily bank up or down through your presets using the front panel switches. Give each preset its own custom name to appear on the display. You can even select presets via an external MIDI controller.
Expression Pedal Control
Plug in an expression pedal and control any knob or combination of knobs, including parameters assigned to Param knobs, all saveable per preset. Or plug in an external momentary Tap switch for remote control of Pre-Delay (or Decay time with the Magneto and Nonlinear machines).
There are occasionally times as guitarists where we don't use guitar amplifiers. You might be using a full-range PA system, recording direct, or using headphones. Because reverb pedals are usually placed last in your effects chain, we felt that BigSky could provide more utility for these situations. Just turn on the selectable Cab Filter to engage our sophisticated speaker response curve. Your dirt pedals will sound amp-like, and your clean guitar will have a present yet rounded response.
Do you like to tweak some knobs more than others? BigSky gives you the ability to assign custom parameters to the two Param knobs on the front panel, all saveable per preset. Bring your most used menu parameters to the front panel, allowing a very quick way to tweak your sound on the fly.
Infinite Sustain / Freeze
Press-and-hold your active preset footswitch to activate either Infinite Sustain or Freeze, configurable per preset. Infinite Sustain allows your reverbs to continue infinitely, with each new note you play adding to the reverb signal. Freeze also delivers infinite sustain, but allows you to play new notes on top of the sustain without adding to the reverb.
Spillover / Reverb Persist
Engage Spillover to allow reverb decays to "spill over" from one preset to the next. You can also turn on Reverb Persist to allow your reverb decay trails to continue even after you hit bypass.
Extensive MIDI Support
Have a more complex rig? The Strymon Big Sky offers a complete MIDI implementation to connect to your MIDI gear. Remote control any knob, parameter, or switch. Select your presets via MIDI. Organize and back up your presets to your Mac or PC using a MIDI to USB adapter and our Librarian software.
