The Flint can move from gutter-tough noir moods, to sun-bleached surfscapes, to time-and-space-stretching ambience with a few simple tweaks. The ease with which you can access the full range of sounds and tone-shaping capabilities is a minor masterpiece of stompbox-interface engineering too. But above all, it’s the quality and authenticity of tones that impresses. Strymon’s work on this front will no doubt delight DSP believers and those that listen with open ears. But this pedal is bound the change the minds of more than a few analog purists, and that may be the ultimate testimonial to how good the Flint can be.
The magical combination of tremolo and reverb is the earliest example of a perfect guitar effects marriage. First pioneered within historic amplifiers of the 1960s, this harmonious coexistence has made it's way onto countless records and performances—from early surf, swampy bayou blues, spaghetti westerns, film noir soundtracks, to modern day indie rock. There are certain things in life that just belong together—the blend of tremolo and reverb create the perfect pair.
Flint gives you the soothing, pulsating, and hypnotic effects that were pioneered in vintage amplifier tremolo circuits, along with three classic and completely unique reverb algorithms. You get the sonically complex '61 Harmonic Tremolo, the swampy and sultry '63 Power Tube Tremolo, and the sharp and balanced '65 Photocell Tremolo. You also get the classic '60s Spring Tank Reverb, the inventive '70s Electronic Plate Reverb, and the nostalgic '80s Hall Rack Reverb.
With eight parameters to tweak, you get extensive control over the tremolo and reverb characteristics. Go from splashy, pulsing twang, to throbbing, swampy blues, all the way to ambient, trembling, and serene reverberated pads. Couple that with true bypass, and a high quality analog front end and output section, and you have yourself the history of tremolo and reverb in a pedal-board friendly format.Why We Love Strymon
