What we say:
At A Glance:
The Strymon Sunset is the result of some heavy duty research into what distortion circuits are the best. After the sun had set on the development process they selected 6 of the most iconic and breathtaking and loaded them into a trademark Strymon chassis with flexible routing and tone options and this new modern classic had arrived!
Features We Love:
6 iconic circuits from Rock’n’Roll history
Once the R&D was complete, the boffins at Strymon HQ settled on 6 of the best chosen for their tonal properties. From amp like break up to hairy fuzz and all custom voiced exclusively for this. So rest assured the Sunset is the one distortion pedal you’ll ever need.
Dual pedal functionality
The great thing about this pedal is that it is essentially 2 distortion pedals in one, each side having 3 different sounds. You can have A going into B, B going into A or use two circuits in parallel, all at the flick of a switch and having a drastic effect on the overall tone. Beefy boost to stacked distorted terror, the Sunset has it all!
Supreme Build and Quality.
As expected from Strymon! As with all Strymon pedals, rest assured they are built to the highest standard with the best parts to ensure premium sound and functionality at all times. The Sunset is no exception and even has a fancy red paint job and free power supply to sweeten the deal.
- Flexible, switchable and vast distortion options
- 2 pedals in 1 with expression pedal and ‘Favourite’ switch access.
- Built like a tank with searing tones hotter than the sun!
- Strymon Blue Sky Reverb
- Power Supply
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.
Sunset utilizes an all-analog JFET gain stage coupled with custom-voiced, precision-crafted DSP algorithms to capture the nuances and character of each circuit type.
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. Routing options have been chosen deliberately to present the best-sounding combinations of drive circuits. Sunset eliminates the guesswork.
Sunset’s input features an ultra low noise, discrete, class-A JFET circuit providing up to 20dB of pure analog gain. With our 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.Main 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
- 9V DC Power Supply Included
