    It's probably been discussed here before, but these Strymon pedals are really something. I just bought the Flint and the tremolo and reverb in this pedal has transformed my amp.

    I highly recommend this piece of equipment especially if you don't have a reverb/tremolo amp.

    I'm playing through a Blonde 20 Carl's Custom amp that he did for me, it sounded great, but I missed the surf/drenched reverb and tremolo I got through my DRRI.

    Check out Strymon, they have some other things have my eye on.

    Eric Haugen uses them on YouTube, and I imagine it's like the Velvet Underground effect - not many people watch his tutorials but those that do end up with a Strymon Flint. If they didn't cost more than my guitars I'd buy one too.

    I've had the Flint for about 5 years now and it's not going anywhere.
    The Mobius I could never get with so I recently sold it. It was too complicated for my simple mind and short attention span.

    I've been eyeing the Flint.

    I had an El Cap for a while - what a great dry-through sound! Didn't mess up anything. And, once I got it dialed in, it sounded great. It became a tool that I turned on and used, rather than a piece of gear I'm never quite happy with and always fooling with.

    I'd like to get a small wattage amp, and most of those don't come with reverb and tremolo. So the Flint is on my short list.

    Is there a way to darken up the reverbs? I watched a Flint review video yesterday and didn't see anything about it. No tone control on the verbs may be a deal breaker for me.

    The "color" knob will darken or brighten the tone.

    I’m on the fence between a Strymon Flint and a true Reverb Tank. I don’t know which way I’m going to go.

    Flint, Lex, and Deco here.
    For some real fun, get a few expression pedals to work with them.

    I like the Flint so much, my spring reverb units are collecting dust.

    With the Flint you can change from Tremolo > Reverb to Reverb > Tremolo. Each has it's own feel and you may prefer one or the other for different styles of music.

    It took me a while to come over to the Strymon side of the fence, because I was convinced that there was no way they would get me to replace my Eventide stuff. I was wrong. Strymon sound great and are easier to program - even the MIDI implementation is better (IMO).

    If it wasn't a pain to power them, I'd own a Flint already. No battery option, no daisy chain One Spot option, isolated power or nothing. I have a reverb pedal and a tremolo pedal. Not the options of the Flint, but it works.

    While it does seem to work better on its own isolated power supply, I have chained mine with a fuzz and a wah on a One Spot with no problem at all. Once I add another digital effect to the chain like a digital delay or something though, I get this mad whiny high pitched drone sound.

    So, yes, definitely finicky sometimes, but also sometimes chainable depending on the other effects in the chain.

    I'd love to own one, but a couple of my favorite guitars (and my main amp) cost less than one. That, and the power thing - I hope to soon power my board from a battery supply which means all analog, low draw pedals only.
