GEAR SPOTLIGHT WHAT WE LIKE You don’t just have to be a Strymon fan to like the Sunset. It’s a smartly designed overdrive with lots to offer. A few extra features I didn’t mention include a Favorite option (for recalling presets) and two expression modes for real-time parameter 52 GEAR SPOTLIGHT // changes and hands-free volume control via an attached expression pedal. CONCERNS Strymon has carved a nice niche in the “secondary functionality” space. As such, I’m baffled why there isn’t any additional EQ tweaking hidden behind the Sunset’s knobs. Don’t Strymon Sunset Dual Overdrive get me wrong—the Noise Reduction feature is genius and the bright switch is a nice addition—but I expected more.
