Andy Othling is a fantastic guitarist that I stumbled upon on the YouTubes while I was exploring some ambient solo looping stuff for my own personal project. I was unhappy with my current loopers and saw that he was using Boomerang. I also noticed, that we shared a similar amp.. and both (at that time) used a Strymon BlueSky, so I thought he would be a good resource. Going beyond ‘sketches’ that he posts, he does an amazing job talking about pedals and techniques. If you’re into ambient stuff, definitely check out his YouTube channel as well as his new site ReverbNerds.com
Recently, I came across a video where he discusses the pre-delay setting on the Strymon BigSky, but this can be applied to other reverbs that offer that control. This is an insanely important control to have big verb AND be able to cut through the mix. I thought this tip was gold
