Guitarists who want studio-quality reverb and don’t want the hassles of hauling around a big rack should immediately get their hands on the Big Sky pedal, which actually outperforms many of its bigger rack-mounted brothers.

If you’re looking for a reverb pedal that will be the end of your search for incredible reverb, this will end that journey. Theres a reason why so many people want it, it’s that good.

My Strymon journey began a few years ago. My first purchase was the Volante, and I was absolutely blown away by its quality and versatility. Panning the heads for stereo was a game-changer for me, and my Boss RE20 was none too pleased to say the least! I purchased a BlueSky last year and I was amazed what that little blue box can do. However, the tweaker in me desired more so I sprung for the BigSky. Well! As a drummer, I’m in hog heaven! All engines sound superb. Want Phil Collins in a box? The Gate mode in Nonlinear is nice. The Room, Hall and Plate engines are superb for drumset. The clarity of sound is absolutely amazing! This is the finest unit I’ve ever had.

I have had this pedal on my board for a over a year and a half now and will never need another reverb pedal. It has everything I need and more. I am still digging into it and finding new ways to use it. Don’t let all those knobs scare you. Once you get the hang of it there is no easier way to get the sound you are looking for. Can’t say enough about this American made best reverb pedal ever. As far as the cost, well, it does so much that it’s like having 2 or 3 pedals in one. It’s well worth every penny!
