As Strymon prepares to lift the veil on its newest pedal tomorrow (18 September, 4am BST), it’s teased yet more details on the space-themed device.

In a Facebook post made earlier today, Strymon finally gave away the name of its new pedal: NightSky. The name immediately brings to mind the ‘Sky’ series of reverb pedals. Just like the BigSky and BlueSky, NightSky appears to have a blue enclosure. The pedal will have a texture control with Sparse, Dense and a mysterious third option (possibly diffuse?)

Another image shared earlier today was of one of the pedal’s footswitches, labelled ‘hold (morph)’. The image also confirmed NightSky has a step sequencer, as suggested by a previously shared teaser post.

NightSky’s ‘hold (morph)’ footswitch also matches the one on a pedal in a photo post by Strymon on 15 September. Although obscured from view (by a moon plushie) this may actually be the fullest view of the NightSky so far.

In other big reverb pedal news, Eventide Audio yesterday launched a stompbox version of its famed Blackhole reverb algorithm. The effect has been a fan favourite since its introduction on the classic DSP4000.
