The SMS Solar Flare is a straight-ahead, 100% analog, hard-clipping distortion pedal inspired by the classics of the ‘70s but fused with a modern voicing approach that helps bring out a more rich and warm tone quality. The Solar Flare will cover a wide range of distortion tones from barely dirty to outright sizzling sustain for days. Three simple controls make it very easy to find the sound you’re after; volume, tone, and drive.
The Solar Flare generates a sweet, singing, sustaining, ear-candy sound that will be right at home whether it’s a guitar solo or rich, textured chording. The Solar Flare also helps to keep pick attack and articulation up front and clearly defined. It also plays very well with other pedals.
