Based on Holcomb's favorite sounds from the company's Andromeda and Silver Lake pedals, the Dark Sun merges warm digital delay with a hall reverb.
Users can shape the effects’ EQ, add saturation and chorus or use the company's Dynamic Expression to control the mix with their playing dynamics. The pedal also features a tap tempo footswitch with four adjustable tap divisions, while tempo can also be set via MIDI and displayed in milliseconds or beats per minute.
The pedal's Routing Control switch features four ways to route the effects. Each effect can be routed to left or right outputs, allowing for use in stereo or as two separate pedals.
“I'm so excited to finally release the Dark Sun!,” Holcomb said.
“We've designed this pedal to be the ultimate delay and reverb combo but, over the course of its development, it has served as something much more for me: an idea generator, a writing companion—something you can plug into and rely on for inspiration.
“Finding that creative spark is a constant pursuit for me, and this pedal makes that journey easier. Seymour Duncan has created something truly special with the Dark Sun.”
The Seymour Duncan Mark Holcomb Dark Sun Delay/Reverb pedal is available now for $369.
