The Strymon Iridium Amp and IR Cab Simulator Pedal gives you three iconic amplifiers, with a total of nine impulse response speaker cabinets that complement the tonality of the amp.

Go Direct With Gorgeous Tone

Skip the hassle of lugging around or miking amps. Place the Strymon Iridium Amp and IR Cab Simulator Pedal on your pedalboard and send gorgeous stereo amplifier tones, stunningly realistic cabs, and lush room ambience direct to a recording interface or PA system. With the Strymon Iridium Amp and IR Cab Simulator Pedal, it’s a snap to dial in a direct tone that will truly inspire and sound great whether you are monitoring through in-ears, floor wedges, reference monitors, or studio headphones.

Leave Your Amp At Home

Nothing reveals the true nature of your guitar and your playing like a world-class tube amp driving a perfectly matched speaker cabinet in a great sounding room. The Strymon Iridium Amp and IR Cab Simulator Pedal truly delivers that sound and feel, with simple controls for effortlessly dialing in the perfect amp tone when going direct. Discover inspiring tube amp responsiveness, unprecedented impulse response speaker cabinet realism, and controllable natural sounding room ambience.

Three Iconic Amplifiers

Strymon’s Matrix Modeling process captures all the subtleties and unique tonal qualities of each amplifier. We’ve taken three iconic tube amps with distinct characters and mathematically modeled every aspect of their circuitry with absolute precision to deliver the response, feel, and inspiring experience of playing through the original amps at their best. Taking the process a step further, we’ve hot-rodded each amp to provide an extended range of tonal options beyond what was available from the original designs.

Nine Stereo IR Cabinets

The Strymon Iridium Amp and IR Cab Simulator Pedal’s speaker cabinets offer a level of realism and responsiveness unprecedented in outboard effects. It delivers full stereo 24bit 96kHz resolution for the entire 500 milliseconds of its speaker cabinet impulse responses. Until now, IRs of this resolution have only been available for use within studio recording software. The Strymon Iridium Amp and IR Cab Simulator Pedal’s breakthrough technology means you can use the very best impulse responses available, bringing maximum realism to your pedalboard.

Adjustable Room Ambience

The Strymon Iridium Amp and IR Cab Simulator Pedal’s hybrid room reverb combines a 256 millisecond stereo impulse response with Strymon’s reverb tank algorithm for extended decay. This combination places your amp and cab in a natural sounding room (small, medium, or large), creating a space for your amp to open up and breathe.

On Stage

Want to play live with the exact same tones that you use at home or in the studio? Or have access to multiple amp and cab setups without having to lug them on stage? Leave your amps at home, and connect the Strymon Iridium Amp and IR Cab Simulator Pedal directly to the house PA system.

Going direct eliminates the need to mic an amp, giving sound engineers the option to send your amp and cab tone directly to a wedge or in-ear monitors. Instant adjustments to your tone are right there on your pedalboard, only a footswitch away. With the Strymon Iridium Amp and IR Cab Simulator Pedal, there are no menus to wade through—just familiar, responsive amp-style controls for instant, easy adjustment.

In the Studio

Skip the hassle of mic’ing up your amps or having to crank them up to get the tone you desire. Instantly audition amps and cabs with the flick of a switch. The Strymon Iridium Amp and IR Cab Simulator Pedal provides gorgeous, iconic amp tones, stunningly realistic stereo cabinet impulse responses, and natural room ambience—essential elements for recording guitar in the studio. Place Iridium at the end of your effects chain and capture stereo amp and cab tones direct into your recording interface. Or, place Iridium before your delays and reverbs to allow those time-based effects to occur post amp and cab.

At Home

Integrate the Strymon Iridium Amp and IR Cab Simulator Pedal into your pedalboard by placing at the end of your chain and experience your entire pedalboard tones directly in your headphones. You can’t always crank up an amplifier when you want to play in your living room or rehearse at home. Plug your favourite set of headphones into the Iridium’s headphone jack and get immersed in the sounds of iconic amps and cabs in a natural sounding room.

More Use Cases

The the Strymon Iridium Amp and IR Cab Simulator Pedal also allows for less common use cases. Want to use Iridium’s amplifiers but not the IR cabinets? Select Iridium’s Cab Bypass mode, and connect the output(s) to the effects return or power amp input on a guitar amplifier. Want to use Iridium’s IR cabinets but not the amps? Engage Iridium’s Amp Bypass mode, and connect a preamp or preamp pedal (such as Riverside) to Iridium’s input. Because the purpose of the the Strymon Iridium Amp and IR Cab Simulator Pedal is to generate amp and cabinet tones, the primary use case is for direct situations. It’s not recommended to connect Iridium to a guitar amplifier.
