Description

In creating the Strymon Sunset Dual Overdrive, the company’s designers studied the six circuit types behind the sounds of many timeless overdrive/boost pedals to engineer their version of each into a single two-channel unit. The Sunset is really two customizable overdrive pedals, independently selectable and flexibly routable, designed and voiced for complementary tones when stacked.

From transparent amp-like sounds to heavy saturated fuzz, plus all of the choices in between, Sunset lets you select layered, multistage tonalities rather than experiment until you achieve them. Its hybrid analog/digital design uses the strengths of both — an all-analog JFET gain stage combines with custom-voiced, precision-crafted DSP algorithms to articulate guitar input with nuance and character.

Channel A Overdrive Circuits

The Ge overdrive combines the softer response of germanium diodes with a parallel path that blends in the dry signal as the Drive is lowered. At higher gains the lower-midrange frequencies are emphasized to create a tight, thick response. This overdrive really fattens up single coil pickups, and responds with a bold push when paired with humbuckers.

The Texas overdrive employs a single stage soft-clipper configuration that is filtered before and after the gain stage to create a smooth and dynamic overdrive. The original signal dynamics are retained as the gain is increased – perfect for playing the blues or just fattening up your sound with a signature midrange bump.

Channel A Boost Circuit

The Treble is a treble booster that removes the low frequencies as the Tone knob is turned up – great for tightening up an overdriven amp, or driving another gain pedal that’s a bit looser on the low end. Turning the Tone knob down brings in the low end, making for a versatile all-around boost.

Channel B Overdrive Circuits

The 2stage overdrive combines a soft-clipping stage followed by a hard-clipping stage, creating a complex overdrive with a wide range of gain. Its EQ structure preserves the low end while adding some muscle to push your amp. This overdrive can easily take you from lightly clipped to beefy saturation.

The Hard overdrive uses a single-stage hard-clipping circuit that has a ton of available gain, approaching fuzz territory with the Drive knob maxed. At lower gains, mildly clipped transparent tones are achieved with this versatile drive. The wide-ranging Tone knob lets you shape the top end from smooth to buzzy.

Channel B Boost Circuit

The JFET type is a clean boost that subtly beefs up your signal with the dynamics and responsiveness created from the JFET front end. As you turn up the drive, the signal gets rounded and warmer. This is a great option when your amp just “needs a little extra.”

Optimized Stacking

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. You can also route the Channel A drive circuit through Channel B (or vice-versa) or use two circuits in parallel. All Strymon pedals are designed and built in the USA.

Features:

  • 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

Love this pedal
A good selling point for this pedal is that the different settings work well with different guitars. I'm tracking a project here that requires lots of different guitar sounds. I can change from a Les Paul to a PRS to a Strat or Tele and use the same set up with that pedal. It's got a cool Texas blues sound, but will go the other direction too, plus the ability to push one side with the other is very cool. I have full blown pedal boards with great pedals but this setup is just simpler. Kind of a long winded response but I do love the pedal.
