One for everything

C14, 05.12.2016
With continued enthusiasm I play the three big boxes of Strymon (Mobius, Timeline, BigSky), because they are simply unrivaled. Now, Strymon dares to look at the thin ice of the distortion market and compete with over 500 competitors on the Thomann side - the world is already different.

Features: 3-band sound control, two-step gain and switchable mid-boost, also conceals a NoiseGate. 1 memory, three-level high-frequency switch. Everything worked well; The bullish case in classical style conceals the digital interior life and goes through as a taste. Boost function with additional switch. Additional functions can be achieved by switch combinations.

Sound: Extremely "clean" distortion, really "silky", very nice, thanks to the good controllability can be adapted to every instrument-amplifier combination and style. From thin and translucent to fat, from determined scratching to the end of the world, everything is in it.

Rating: Can be anything, the sound in each category is not different from "very good". However, if you are looking for something special for your sound and style, you will find this in a more specialized way, filling the niche. In direct comparison with my favorite distortions, these seem to possess more own character, recognizability.

Examples for more stylish alternatives, if you are interested: Suhr Riot ("British" roast), MesaBoogie Flux Drive ("American" bite), Suhr Shiba Drive (soft Overdrive), Xotic BB Preamp ("vintage") MadProfessor LittleGreenWonder (ed Tones), DigiTech BadMonkey (for small money bags). Direct competitor among the all-rounder: Xotic BBPlus.

Outlook: Delightful wait until Strymon brings out a programmable distortion unit, which would then be unrivaled.
