The Strymon Riverside was certainly one of the most anticipated pedals of 2016, if anything because it represented the first take on distortion from a manufacturer that was able, in recent years, to redefine the stompbox format for pretty much any other kind of effect, from modulation to delay to reverb.

A couple of months ago, Strymon’s own demos made guitarists salivate, but we are finally getting some video reviews for a final litmus test, and the responses so far seem as positive as expected. Here are two of them: the first one, from Rob Chapman’s The Andertones show, is loads of fun and in line with the Christmas spirit.

The second one, from the force of nature known as the Germann Dude, is brand new – enjoy!
