Except for noise level studio suited.

Wernie, 07.03.2017
For high-priced products like this, my ratings are always somewhat critical, because the expectation is correspondingly high. So also with Strymon, of which I already have the Flint, the El Capistan the Ojay and the OB1. I now searched for a device with which I can warm the sound a bit without brute distortion and if possible directly into the desk.

A lot of distortion does not bring a usable sound when you go directly into the console over a PA or in the studio. This results in satisfactory results, even if there is no speaker simulation. This is due in part to the effective EQ. What makes something annoying, is the relatively high Grundrauschen already with minimal gain. You can hear this very clearly by turning the gain control to the left, turning all the EQs to the center position, and then turning the volume control up until the volume of the guitar is equal with and without bypass. That should not really be and gives a point deduction.

Compared to the other three Strymon pedals I've been designing something changed, the buttons look less vintage, other LEDs are used and the power socket is not sunk anymore. The cables are therefore far away. What is annoying with all Strymon pedals is that the nuts of the jacks always release themselves. Strymon has unfortunately been criticized that the design is not as durable and panzerartig as with Boss.

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.
