That Pedal Show – Chase Bliss Audio Brothers & Strymon Sunset. Plus A Bit Of Riverside Too

Published on Apr 14, 2017
Duration:
53:25:00

In this episode we compare two superb dual-stage overdrives, both new for Spring 2017.
Both pedals offer three modes per side and have the ability to stack side A into B; B into A and – usually – have both sides running in parallel. There is also an element of programmability in both pedals.
One key difference between them, however is that the Chase Bliss Audio Brothers has an entirely analogue signal path, while Strymon’s Sunset uses a goodly chunk of DSP.
Let’s plug them in and see what we think…
