Double Up on Iconic Overdrive Tones
Put the sound of the top six overdrive circuits of all time on your pedalboard, with the Strymon Sunset Dual Overdrive Pedal. Strymon analyzed six of the most legendary overdrive and boost circuits, then fine-tuned their voicings to cover the widest range of tones possible. Use any of the six overdrive circuits on its own, stack one channel into the other, or even use two overdrives in parallel for amazing harmonic complexity. Noise reduction is available as a secondary function to reduce hum or buzz when you’re not playing. And with its premium Class A JFET input stage with up to 20dB of analog gain, the Strymon Sunset Dual Overdrive Pedal combines the best of analog and digital technology to address all your overdrive needs with impeccable fidelity.
18 possible ways to stack your overdrives and boosts
Guitarists at Sweetwater love stacking overdrive pedals in different configurations, and the Sunset Dual Overdrive Pedal makes it easy with its 2-channel design. While you can use any of the six overdrive circuits on their own, you can also cascade either channel into the other via a switch on the rear panel. Strymon voiced these overdrives for maximum sonic compatibility however you stack them. Stacking your overdrives can seriously expand your expressive range by creating more harmonic complexity throughout your guitar’s dynamic range, and once you try it with the Sunset Dual Overdrive, you’ll wonder how you ever got along with just a single dirt pedal. You can also run two overdrives together in parallel — nine possible combinations offer a ton of creative flexibility.
2-channel design for maximum flexibility
Each of the two channels on the Strymon Sunset pedal offer two iconic overdrive circuit designs, plus a classic boost circuit design. Familiar controls for Drive, Tone, and Level make it easy to dial in your sound, and a Bright switch is available for adding some bite to help cut through the mix.
Expression pedal input for advanced functionality
Connect your favorite expression pedal to the Strymon Sunset Dual Overdrive to get the most out of this flexible pedal. You can set the heel-to-toe range for every knob and then morph parameters while you play. There’s also a Volume mode that lets you use your expression pedal for smooth volume control, even when the Sunset Overdrive is bypassed — an excellent alternative to a standalone volume pedal.
