Strymon Sunset Dual Overdrive
"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. We studied six circuit types found in many truly timeless and iconic overdrive and boost pedals, and put our takes on all six of them into a single two-channel unit.
Sunset is 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.
We are all familiar with the endless search for the ultimate overdrive pedal and the perfect tone. We 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. We 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.
Six drive circuit topologies with custom tuned voicing for each drive type
Precision crafted drive circuits stackable in multiple combinations for a wide variety of complex, responsive tones.
Analog class A JFET input gain stage maximizes headroom while adding up to 20dB of pure analog gain
Drive and Tone control ranges optimized for each circuit topology
Series, reverse series, and parallel drive circuit stacking via Config switch
Bright switch to tailor the sound for use with all amplifiers from dark to bright
Optional variable-threshold noise reduction for taming noisy guitar pickups
High impedance mono input
Favorite Input to connect an external MiniSwitch to recall a Favorite preset
Expression pedal input allows the connection an expression pedal for simultaneous morphing control over multiple parameters (Expression mode), or logarithmic taper for smooth volume control (Volume mode)
MIDI accessible via Expression jack for remote parameter control and access to 300 preset locations"
