Classic overdrive sound, x2.
Sunset gives you the best
of the best classic overdrive circuits, custom voiced for instantly
gratifying control over a huge range of sought-after tones. Strymon
studied six circuit types found in many truly timeless and iconic
overdrive and boost pedals, and put their takes on all six of them into a
single two-channel unit.
Two pedals at once.
really two customizable overdrive pedals, independently selectable and
flexibly routable, designed and voiced for complementary tones when
stacked. Six distinct circuits each feel and react differently in your
hands, two at once, all in one convenient package. Push your amp any way
you want, from transparent “more amp” to heavy saturated fuzz, and all
the best places in between.
Holy Grail tone, minus the quest.
are all familiar with the endless search for the ultimate overdrive
pedal and the perfect tone. Strymon did the critical listening and
custom voicing to design each side of Sunset with just one tone knob, so
you can quickly dial in the sound you want. The knob ranges for each
circuit type are custom calibrated to provide maximal usable control.
Strymon applied the same design philosophy and care to the stacking
options, ensuring each combination interacts optimally and sounds great,
so a huge range of classic overdrive tones are instantly achievable.
the time when overdrives were created to simply push an amp in order to
achieve an overdriven sound even at sane volume levels, players have
evolved to want more layered, multistage tonalities. Stacking gives you
more flexibility and tone range on the floor. You can find an overdrive
that sounds good on its own, then run it through a second drive to add
new dimensions to your tone. Sunset allows you to use any of its six
overdrive circuits on their own, or route the Channel A drive circuit
through Channel B, or Channel B through Channel A, or use two circuits
in parallel. Routing options have been chosen deliberately to present
the best-sounding combinations of drive circuits. Sunset eliminates the
Digital or analog? We chose both.
input features an ultra low noise, discrete, class-A JFET circuit
providing up to 20dB of pure analog gain. With Strymon's hybrid approach
you get the best of both analog and digital worlds: The JFET stage
provides exceptional touch sensitivity and dynamic interaction with your
guitar, while the incredibly powerful SHARC DSP facilitates the great
level of detailed complexity and responsiveness you’ll want to hear.
