Strymon’s Cloudburst Ambient Reverb Pedal represents a bold new step for one of the stompbox world’s most renowned brands, packing their industry-defining echo algorithms into a significantly smaller form factor with a drastically streamlined workflow. The Cloudburst boasts an exceptionally accessible knob-per-function layout, including a single Decay knob that unlocks a vast sweep of different echo options, from a slight room reflection to an all-out wash of ambient reverberation. Moreover, a cutting-edge Ensemble control integrates dynamic synthetic string-style harmonics into your signal, while the Mod control is a must-have for creating movement and texture in your signature soundscapes. Of course, this pedal’s slimmed-down box makes no compromises on Strymon’s studio-quality formula — the Cloudburst sports full MIDI functionality, USB-C, 300 presets, stereo I/O, and a host of other top-end features found on its larger siblings. Strymon never fails to impress; fittingly, the Cloudburst’s seamless blend of studio-grade sound, near-limitless sonic options, and traditional stompbox workflow prove the sky’s the limit for this single-algorithm reverb pedal.
