The Solarian is a MOSFET dirty boost. Add harmonics with the Gain knob, and boost the signal with the Level knob.


The Brightness switch toggles between three set treble responses.

  • In the left position, the treble is -5dB for frequencies 5khz and up. This is useful for removing harsh frequencies, especially when using the Solarian for some overdrive.
  • In the middle position, the treble has a flat frequency response
  • In the right position the treble is boosted at 2kHz and above. The boost is more effective at lower gain settings. This is useful for getting a bright, clear cutting tone.


This is a small batch build and stock is limited.


The Solarian requires a DC power supply (not included). The DC supply should be a standard Boss style connector, center negative polarity. It can accept 9 to 24 volts. The current draw is approximately 5 mA.


The Solarian has a true bypass switch.


Dimensions: 4.77" long x 2.6" wide
