Description

Classic overdrive sound, times 2

The Strymon 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 pedals, and put their takes on all six of them into a single two-channel unit.

Two Pedals at Once

Sunset is really two customizable overdrive pedals, independently selectable and flexibly routable, designed and voiced for complimentary 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

We 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. They 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.

Optimized stacking

Since 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. When stacking overdrive pedals, some combinations work especially well together. Sunset eliminates the guesswork. Routing options have been chosen deliberately to present the best-sounding combinations of drive circuits.

Digital or analog?

Sunset’s input features an ultra low noise, discrete, class-A JFET circuit providing up to 20 dB of pure analog gain. With the 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.

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 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 A boost circuit

The Treble type 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 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. The is a great option when your amp just “needs a little extra.”

Features:

  • Two complete effects that can be configured and controlled separately or blended together as a single effect
  • Hand crafted dual stage distortion algorithms provides a wide range of drive
  • Bright switch to tailor the sound for use with all amplifier from dark to bright

  • Expression pedal control to seamlessly morph between different sounds
  • Volume pedal expression mode with logarithmic taper for smooth volume control – even when the effect is bypassed
  • Optional external Favorite switch provides access to toggle between a saved favorite setting and the current settings on the pedal
  • Optional noise gate to minimize buzz and hum
  • Premium analog front end and output section
  • Ultra Low Noise, high performance A/D and D/A Converters
  • High Performance DSP
  • Rugged & Lightweight Anodized Aluminum Chassis
  • True Bypass
  • Selectable high-quality, transparent analog buffered bypass
