Strymon BigSky – Bloom Reverb machine audio demo

BigSky Reverberator gives you twelve studio-class, musically inspirational reverb machines. In the ’90s, more diffusion blocks were added to reverbs to ‘smooth out’ the sound. A side effect of this was the tendency of the reverbs to have a slowly building envelope that ‘bloomed’, resulting in big ambient reverbs that sit nicely with the dry signal even at high Mix levels. The Bloom reverb features a ‘bloom generating’ section that feeds into a traditional reverb ‘tank’, and adds a unique Feedback parameter that expands the possibilities exponentially.

All sounds recorded direct using a Damage Control tube preamp. No additional effects were used. Sounds performed by Strymon’s marketing guy Ethan Tufts ( and Strymon’s DSP engineer Pete Celi. Thanks for listening! 🙂

  1. Strymon, can one set (on the fly) the time it takes the reverb to reach
    it’s max via a tap tempo using some non-latching switch or expression

  2. Just ordered mine!!! So excited and hope i get it in time for my Xmas
    vacations! Yeah! Thank you Strymon. Still got some money left and thinking
    about getting a Strymon T-shirt… ;o)

  3. I remember the bloom function on the original ART rack mount reverb 20
    years ago. Great sound that I never found anywhere else until now.

  4. Ah, springtime. When the reverbs are in full bloom. #reverb #strymon

  5. What about distortion? Heavy players want verb for leads. But all the demos
    are with clean guitar. This tells me it probably sounds like shit with my
    slo 100

  6. That ghost verb is absolutely amazing. It’s what sold me on this pedal far
    above everything else it can do. It’s the exact sound I’ve been looking
