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.
Configure your drive stack.
Sunset’s three-position Config switch gives you powerful control over signal flow when you stack two drive circuits.
You can run whichever two drive circuits you choose in series, reverse series, or parallel, all with the flip of a switch and no recabling.
Coming up with great sounding drive and signal flow combinations is fast and easy.
Custom voiced for any amp.
Sunset’s three-position Bright switch is custom voiced to perfectly tailor the highest frequencies of your output signal.
Minus (-) smooths the top end to work well with amps or speakers that have a brighter voice.
Neutral (center) provides a balanced top end that works with a variety of amps and speakers.
Plus (+) delivers extended high end detail to the warmest amps.
Tame the noise.
Sunset has an optional, variable-threshold noise reduction feature to tame hum, buzz, and system noise when you’re not playing.
A downward expander with advanced signal detection techniques creates a seamless transition to noise reduced silence with all types of input signal dynamics, including staccato bursts and slowly decaying sustained notes.
Everyone has a favorite.
Sunset allows you to save and recall your favorite settings.
Just connect an optional MiniSwitch or other external latching footswitch with a TRS cable to store and recall your Favorite setting.
Morphing expression control.
Connect an expression pedal, and enjoy a whole new level of instantaneous, continuous control.
Set as many knobs as you like for the heel position and toe position of your expression pedal, and all settings will simultaneously morph throughout the full range of the expression pedal.
Sunset becomes part of your musical instrument, an extension of your musical voice, an active part of your performance.
Turn up the volume.
The Expression pedal jack can be set up in Volume Mode, which provides a logarithmic taper for smooth volume control, even when Sunset is in bypass mode.
If you have an expression pedal, this provides an excellent alternative to a standalone Volume pedal.
Lurking inside your Sunset pedal is a hidden superpower: MIDI Control.
Save and load drive presets. Control all knobs and switches via MIDI.
Integrate Sunset into an elaborate MIDI pedalboard or use in an ultra-compact setup for easy travel.
Connect our MIDI EXP Cable to the Expression pedal jack to access these features.
Note: Your Sunset may require updated firmware to enable MIDI control. Learn how to update and how to check if you pedal requires an update here.
