Strymon Flint Tremolo & Reverb V2 has three different tremolo and reverb sounds that take you to a journey across decades, from 1950's to this day. New V2 version of Flint has a host of updates in sound and technology side.
Intensity (tremolo): Sets the depth of tremolo effect. At 7 o'clock no tremolo, at 5 o'clock the sound cuts out completely at silent parts.
Speed (tremolo): Sets the speed of tremolo effect, gets faster towards 5 o'clock.
Tremolo switch: 3-position switch to choose your preferred tremolo type. '61 Harm: harmonic tremolo in the vein of old Fender vibratos. Not just a tremolo, there is also some modulation in the sound. '63 Tube: Soft tube tremolo. '65 Photo: photocell tremolo which is more modern-sounding.
Mix (reverb): Sets the relationship between dry and reverberated signal, goes from 100% dry to 100% wet.
Color (reverb): Controls the tone of reverb. Gets brighter towards 5 o'clock. Important control which helps you to fine-tune the reverb sound fitting to your amp.
Decay (reverb): Sets the length of reverb. 1970's and 1980's reverbs are almost infinite at 5 o'clock.
Reverb switch: 3-position switch to choose your preferred reverb type. 60's: traditional spring reverb. 70's electronic plate reverb. 80's: rack reverb.
Hidden controls (activated by pressing both bypass switches down):
Tremolo Boost/Cut (under Intensity control): Sets volume of tremolo, +/- 3db
Reverb Boost/Cut (under Mix control): Sets the volume of reverb, +/-3 db
Tap Subdivision (for Tremolo, under Speed control): Sets the subdivisions of tap tempo, when you use an external tap tempo switch.
Effect order (under Decay control): Changes the order of effects in the signal chain.
Pre-delay (under Color control): New control for V2, adjusts the delay between your playing and the first wave of reverb.
Inputs and outputs: Stereo in (TRS) and stereo out. Exp input which can be used to connect a expression pedal, tap tempo switch or a Strymon Tap Favorite switch to the pedal.
- Power requirements: 2,1mm 9V DC centre negative, 250 mA. Power supply included.

New features in V2:
- Full MIDI control, including MIDI clock sync and access to 300 presets via MIDI.
- USB-C included as standard on each unit for MIDI-over-USB and firmware updates, which allows bi-directional MIDI communication with a single cable using Strymon’s Conduit interface. There will also be free editor/librarian support through the USB connectivity. The editor/librarian software is due to be launched in August 2022.
- TRS full stereo inputs and a MONO/STEREO input switch on the back of the unit; a major improvement and much more convenient than having to take apart the pedal to change the internal physical jumper position as on the originals
- All V2 models also now feature a brand new Strymon Class A JFET preamp, making every pedal sound better right from the outset.
- A new state-of the-art 520MHz ARM processor to provide massive DSP headroom for seamless processing and improved audio quality
