Plek This Guitar
Please read the terms & conditions below before confirming that you wish for us to including a Plek setup on this guitar.
Choosing to have your purchased guitar Plek’d will delay the shipping. One of the team will be in contact with a rough ETA but we will endeavour to have your new guitar with you as quickly as possible. Current lead time is 2-3 weeks from the date of purchase.
If you choose to return the guitar after it’s had a Plek setup you will still be liable for the cost of the plek setup except for in cases where we’ve offered it as part of a promotion or offer.

Specification

Strymon are the Rolls-Royce of pedal companies and frankly, the build quality and tonal options they are capable of making are remarkable. Strymon make basically every major type of pedal going, and nail each and every one of them. Here comes something they've not done before, and it's the main pedal type everyone expects as most pedal brands first pedal, an overdrive! But what makes this overdrive worthy of the Strymon label?

Two pedals at once.

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.

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.

Six classic circuits.

Sunset utilises an all-analog JFET gain stage coupled with custom-voiced, precision-crafted DSP algorithms to capture the nuances and character of each circuit type.

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-mid range frequencies are emphasised 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 mid range bump.

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 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.

Optimised 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. Routeing options have been chosen deliberately to present the best-sounding combinations of drive circuits. Sunset eliminates the guesswork.

Digital or analog? Strymon chose both.

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