Great sounding and easy to use
Marcello_, 09.05.2020
I was looking for an amp modeler for my recording and live setup and I've put this Iridium in my cart as soon as Thomann had it available because I trust so much on Strymon products.

I've had Kemper head, Hx stomp and Fractal AX8 (my favorite of them all), so I have quite an experience with modelers.

I've purchased the Iridium mainly for its pedal format and the ease of use. I didn't want to navigate through dozens of menus just to make a decent sound, neither I wanted a big all-in-one pedalboard because I go to gigs and rehearsals by bike or public transportation. Plus I already have some effect pedals.

The amps and cabinets sound great. Responsive to the touch and faithful to the sound they're emulating. Distorted sounds clean up really well with guitar volume knob and are easy to manage with the effective eq controls. The Marshall amp is very noisy with the gain past 2 'o clock, but I guess a real Marshall is not that quiet...

Anyway, I mostly play jazz through and AER compact amp and the Iridium sounds great before it. It gives the amp that valve feeling I've been missing for years. Sounds fantastic via studio monitors as well. I'm not quite satisfied about the room sounds, I would have preferred an actual reverb algorithm, but I can easily solve the problem by putting my ambient fx after the Iridium. Overdrive pedals sound very good before the Iridium, which behaves like a real amp.

Possible uses:
- Live without amps or as a backup in case your valve amp fails
- Live plugged in the return jack of your valve amp (without cab simulation), as it was a preamp
- In studio to record with a realistic sound without micing any amp or opening CPU-killersplugins.

The best solution for home players
Peter_geo, 16.02.2021
I moved to an apartment and even with a small amp it is not practical to play in the evening at a decent volume.

I research theDSM Humbolt and several other units before going with the Strymon.
I have a lot of pedals to connect and wanted something that would take them well.
Several days worth of reviews later I chose the Iridium.

I purchased the Iridium to plug in a pedal board and listen through headphones. It does this incredibly well. There is enough variety in the 3 amps x 3 cabs to be able to dial in the tone you are looking for.

I haven’t experimented with loading 3rd party IR’s but don’t think it will be necessary. I’m using a decent pair of headphones and the sound is really full and the level control works well. You can crank this up to loud is more good levels.

I’m looking forward to getting into recording through this unit. As with other Strymon gear the quality is top notch.

I would highly recommend this to anyone who wants to do some silent practice without sacrificing the quality of your sound. 5 stars.

hrdza, 22.03.2021
Because of back pain I stopped carrying 2x12 guitar combo about 6 years ago and started using different amp and cab simulators. My favourite ones were quite cheap, Mooer Radar or even HB American trueTone! This one is a different story. Very easy to use, all sounds are excellent. Bought it for live use but I also do all the studio recording with it. For live use I had to buy a new midi controller (Morningstar MC6) because I could not figure out how to programme the Iridium's midi functions on a midi controller with no display or software together with other devices like Timeline and H9. One of the best pedals I ever bought! Worth every cent!

Ticks all the boxes
Pedalpower, 20.05.2020
I ordered this product as I live in the city and am not able to use my tube amp at home at a decent volume. In essence, I wanted an amp to use for practicing/recording that sounds as great as an actual tube amp. I must say that the Strymon Iridium ticks alls the boxes. It sounds great, not only by itself but also with my pedal board, it is super-flexible and the direct head phone output is nice plus allowing me to use it without my computer. The only thing that would make this product even better is a built-in effects loop.
