    "Leaked" on Facebook, twice. Check out the black box with white knobs in the top right of each board.

    Looks like FLAT, FLOAT, FLINT, or FLIRT... Probably a dirtbox!

    I will get excited when they actually announce something.
    If it is a new pedal it better not be dirt though.

    I love strymon products, but one one hand all their digital pedal requires 250 mA. I want to add Lex to my El Cap, but it requires new power supply and it would be pretty big. So, they looks like pedalboard friendly, but for guys with big board.
    On the other hand, if it some kind of dirt, I do not why it should be better, then guys like Barber or Wampler.
    Strymon now have only one analog pedal, and looks like it's not very popular and have something special.

    PS I love announces and cool photos, but too many teasers from strymon before every pedal.

    hmmm... if t's DIGITAL dirt, not sure I'd be interested... haven't been a fan of dirt modeling stuff. I put up with it in my GDEC, 'cause that's for practice & low-volume at home stuff. But in a REAL rig?

    The Source Audio Multiwave Distortion is pretty cool but does take a little getting used to.

    That being said it won't be a digital distortion in fact I very much doubt that it will be dirt at all. Even when they did the Damage Control stuff their big tube driven overdrives and pre-amps were definitely the least admired of their range (as compared to the Glass Nexus and Timeline) and I think they have learnt from that in this new venture (Strymon I mean).

    Then what could it be? Tremolo or Phaser, maybe? Filters of some sort? Pitch?

    That is my favorite new dirt box. That said, it wasn't made to sound traditional so digital more than makes sense.

    It may or may not be any of the above, but I am pretty sure that it will be - expensive! :lol:

    This too is my favorite new dirt box.
    I got mine a few weeks ago and am using it more and more.
    It does take a little getting used to but it is worth it.
    Very cool sounds.

    I'm thinking some sort of tremelo pedal.

    Well they do not have a tremelo pedal in their lineup which leads me to believe tremelo.

    Just released on twitter that the name is "Flint"... Which pretty much tells us nothing! :)

    I believe, that it would be something with tremolo. Check fender-style amp under pedal.

    Most of the Strymon pedals have been game-changers. I expect this one to be too. (Unless it's digital dirt; I still say a digital dirt pedal will not be popular).

    I disagree that they are game changers - Great pedals, mind you - But, game changers are staples on every pedalboard. The Strymon stuff is still a niche, boutique market.

    DUDE... the ElCapistan effectively replaced tape echoes, for live/pedalboard purposes. There are a couple other good ones (most noteably to Skreddy) but something that puts a huge, maintenance-requiring tape echo into a footswitchable box the size of a cheeseburger, I'd say, is a game changer.

    I hear ya, but I think you are giving Strymon waaaaaay too much credit. Heck, Boss delay pedals did away with tape echoes practically from the beginning. Very few people tour with tape delays anymore. And even fewer still tour with the El Cap. They are still a small, niche company.

    Post-Boss, the game changer for delay was the DL4. Everyone and their mother had one on their board - pros and amateurs alike. Is the El Cap better? Hell yeah, but its still way too marginal to be considered a game changer.
