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. Now there is a pedal that 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.

Iridium gives you three iconic amplifiers, with a total of nine impulse response speaker cabinets that complement the tonality of the amp. Skip the hassle of lugging around or miking amps. Place Iridium 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 Iridium, 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.

Strymon's Matrix Modeling process captures all the subtleties and unique tonal qualities of each amplifier. They’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, they’ve hot-rodded each amp to provide an extended range of tonal options beyond what was available from the original designs.

Iridium’s speaker cabinets offer a level of realism and responsiveness unprecedented in outboard effects. Iridium 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. Iridium’s breakthrough technology means you can use the very best impulse responses available, bringing maximum realism to your pedalboard.

Iridium’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.

Awesome pedal!


Awesome IR sim! I already owned several other Strymon products, and this sits right up there with their best verbs and delays. This works great for me doing a lot of stereo recording at home, and allows for quick and easy tone shaping.



Modeling for people who like real amps


Great pedal. You can tweak like a real amp without sorting through 100's of options like other modeling/simulation units. Responds like a real amp.



Lives up to promise!


Using Iridium for DI recording, it has replaced half my rig. The AC30 is the best modeling of it I have heard yet. I only wish it had Spdif out to avoid extra conversion in the studio. Stellar product and well worth the premium.



Best digital amp on market


Love this pedal! My favorite setting is Chime, cab A (Vox AC30 setting) sounds identical! I prefer using the iridium because I can turn the level and drive higher which helps give me a better tone, without blowing off the roof like you would with a traditional AC30 turned at higher levels. I play at church so this pedal is very ideal. I plug the end of my pedal board into the iridium, then iridium to DI box to run through the PA system. Or at home I connect to 2 Yamaha HS5 speakers. Sounds just as good as a kemper in my opinion, but a fraction of the price. Super easy to use. Can run mono or stereo.



Thinking about selling my tube amp


The amps and irs are fantastic, I haven't even tried to load new ones yet I've been so happy with what's already there. It takes pedals well but not quite the same as my tube amp. There is a bit of extra noise that can be mitigated with a lower level playing straight into headphones.



Great for direct recording


I've been using this for direct recording and it's been a nice addition to my home studio. The nice tube crunch is impressively modeled to simulate the way break up occurs on a real amp. It's nice to get so many flavors of tone and responsiveness without having to make a lot of noise. Perfect for those of with kids and few daytime recording opportunities!



I would highly recommend the Strymon Iridium to anyone


After about a year or so of trying to figure out what I wanted to do next with my guitar rig, the great people at SamAsh kindly helped me figure out that the Strymon Iridium was exactly what I needed for my portable all in one guitar rig. I would recommend the Strymon Iridium to anyone who just want an amp in the box on there pedalboard. Not to mention its a fraction of the cost of a Fender Tube amp ,Vox Tube amp or Marshall Tube amp. And i almost forgot it has ALL 3 OF THOSE AMPS BUILT IN!



Great addition to home studio


This pedal is a great addition to any home studio setup where you want go direct in and be able to dial in tones physically rather than through a DAW. I'm particularly partial to the Vox tone it can get. I run my board into this through Apogee Duet into Logic Pro X. I find getting a good tone easier to dial in than through the sims, and there is a benefit (in my opinion) to the simplicity. I probably won't gig with this, just personal preference, but it is a very welcome addition to making my recording process easier and sounding great.
