Flint V2 Tremolo & Reverb effects pedal



Strymon Flint V2 Tremolo & Reverb Effects Pedal: A Perfect Gentleman

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 its way onto countless records and performances from early surf, swampy bayou blues, spaghetti westerns and film noir soundtracks, to modern-day indie rock. As music moves forward, guitarists continue rediscovering the inspiration provided by this perfect pair. Flint is a studio-class effects pedal that delivers this classic combination. We carefully studied our favorite classic tremolo and reverb circuits, examined the sonic complexities, and faithfully accounted for every detail in our hand-crafted algorithms. Flint is essentially two pedals in one, with tremolo on one half and reverb on the other.

From a Classic Era

Flint gives you the pulsating, soothingly hypnotic effects pioneered in vintage amplifier tremolo circuits, along with three classic and completely unique reverb algorithms. On the tremolo side of the pedal, you can choose between the sonically complex '61 Harmonic Tremolo, the swampy and sultry '63 Power Tube Tremolo, and the sharp and balanced '65 Photocell Tremolo. On the reverb side, you can select the classic '60s Spring Tank Reverb, the inventive '70s Electronic Plate Reverb, or the nostalgic '80s Hall Rack Reverb. With nine 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 premium quality analog front end and output section, and you have the history of tremolo and reverb in a pedalboard-friendly format.

Vintage Sound, New Features

Our second generation Flint gives you the same gorgeous tremolo and reverb sounds from our original and adds significant new features, incorporating technological advancements, hardware improvements, and design enhancements to give you additional flexibility, power, and ease of use on stage and in the studio.

Extended Control and MIDI Integration

Flint V2 offers extended control with an expanded Speed knob range for slower tremolo speeds and adjustable pre-delay time on the reverb side. Full MIDI implementation means you can control almost every switch, knob, and setting remotely by sending MIDI commands from your controller or DAW via Flint’s EXP/MIDI jack or USB-C connection. Tremolo speed can be synchronized via MIDI Clock Sync, and the sync setting can be saved for each preset. 300 MIDI preset locations are available for loading and saving your favorite settings.

Hardware Improvements

A premium analog JFET input circuit ensures superb responsiveness to your playing, and you can select mono or stereo input with the flick of a rear panel switch. All this, plus a new ARM DSP chip provides more processing power for every sonic nuance, with less energy consumption on your pedalboard.
