CCT says that, with a combination of cascaded JFET and MOSFET gain stages to create its sound, the Starlight is made for soloing.
"There's all the top-end presence you need without harshness or fizz"
Advancing the gain knob starts off with an edgy overdrive that morphs into a thick and liquid-smooth fuzzy distortion. Flick the toggle switch for more gain and to boost the upper-mid frequencies.
Soloing? Sure, but it's great on chords, too (dirty but with definition), and cleans up nicely with guitar volume. There's all the top-end presence you need without harshness or fizz; roll off the tone knob for languid notes.
