    Yeah, I'm pretty sure I'm in way over my head with this one, but I've been wanting a BigSky on my board for a while. I'd collected close to $400 in GC gift cards over the last few years, so when I saw a used pedal pop up online at GC (which is a rare occurrence), I figured I'd take the plunge. Honestly, I have no idea how to even begin learning this baby. The manual reads like Greek to me. I just hope I don't throw in the towel and sell it before I've really seen what it can do. I can be lazy sometimes...

    Hey, send it to me! I'm Greek, so I can help with the manual. I can't promise when (or if...) I will send it back though... :naughty:

    Other guitarist in my band has one, and it is the BOMB! Been trying to replicate the sound on my Helix--almost there.

    I have a BigSky (amongst other Strymon devices) and it is indeed amazing. My only complaint is that in even moderately low light, the control logos are impossible to read. White on light blue ... stylish but invisible.

    Would love an update once you start really digging into it. Matthews has started selling their combo reverb pedal again (Cosmo/Astro) and I am thisclose to pulling the trigger on one, but have this gnawing idea that maybe I should just spend the extra Ben Franklin and get a BigSky.
