The Solar Sound pedal has been redesigned as a smaller and more affordable desktop device. It is a solar powered saturator for distorting guitar, bass, synths, and drum machines. Consisting of a simple transistor based gain circuit that has been finely tuned to take full advantage of the low current and voltage provided by the solar panel, it provides everything from starved and choked gain tones, to light overdrive, and smooth distortion depending on light level.
It was designed for and works best when powered from a natural light source, through a window or outdoors.
Clear acrylic top plate with a walnut plywood bottom plate.
Hardwire true bypass with controls for voltage (gain) and volume.
