Strymon Flint V2
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.
Our new generation of Flint features full MIDI implementation, allowing you to control just about 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. Remotely bypass or engage the pedal, sync tremolo speed changes along with your tracks, automate knob adjustments, recall unique presets for each song on your setlist — the possibilities with MIDI are limitless.
Uncompromised dynamics and feel. Exceptional touch sensitivity and responsiveness. Flint feels just as good as it sounds, thanks to a high impedance ultra-low noise discrete Class A JFET preamp input.
Choose Your Bypass Mode.
Flint lets you choose electromechanical relay switched true bypass for a 100% untouched, unprocessed signal when the pedal is bypassed (this is the default setting), or you can opt for our premium quality buffered bypass that conditions your signal to preserve its integrity by preventing the high end roll-off that can happen due to longer cable runs.
Moving In Stereo.
No need to make compromises when it comes to signal routing or pedal placement — Flint features full stereo in/out capabilities. A single TRS input jack allows Flint to keep its compact form factor while giving you the option to use a stereo input signal. A dedicated rear panel Input switch allows you to easily set Flint for operation with a stereo (TRS) or mono (standard TS) input source. Low impedance dual TS output jacks let you use Flint as a stereo effect.
On Another Level.
Pedals aren’t just for guitarists. Flint’s adjustable input signal level makes it a versatile tool for endless applications from the studio to the stage. By setting Flint to line level input mode, you get 10dB of added headroom, allowing you to use Flint with bass guitars with active pickups, synthesizers, keyboards, effects loops, and more.
Power To The Pedal.
Significant developments in mobile phones and computers have led to an evolution in technology that now allows our pedals to perform more simultaneous processes with less power draw than ever before. That means more processing power for every sonic nuance with less power consumption on your pedal board.
Turn Up The Volume.
We all need a lift every once in a while. Flint features two dedicated +/-3dB boost/cut secondary functions, one for each side of Flint. This lets you add a little extra “oomph” when needed, or to dial things back a bit. The tremolo boost/cut ensures you can get the level you want with any tremolo depth and speed settings. The reverb boost/cut is useful for setting a solo boost when engaging the verb, or reducing level when using huge ambient pads.
