"This Week in Pedalboards: Spaceman Effects "Spacerocket Fuzz." Zak gave me this pedal years ago in Portland, when i barely knew what boutique fuzz was. I learned really quickly after i got this pedal. Ive never heard anything quite like it before or since then. It squares off in a very musical way, and adds an extremely pronounced upper octave harmonic. Not for the faint of heart. Apparently there’s only so many components left, so the supplies of this are extremely limited. This pedal has been used on every Baroness album starting with “BLUE” and i tour with it regularly. I had to get a second one, just in case this ever gets destroyed (I’m rough on gear). You want an incredible, saturated harmonic solo tone… here it is."more
The Spacerocket is a discrete silicon transistor fuzz. It has a simple layout with three controls: Tone and Level, plus a 3-way toggle switch to control Fuzz gain. On top sits a reverse-engraved, hand painted vinyl faceplate with backlit indicator. Instrument attack is reflected by an indicator located in the rocket's "flame."
The Spacerocket emits otherworldly fuzz tones. The hottest Fuzz setting is a blistering compressed fuzz bomb, with layers of fuzz ringing through. With other Fuzz settings, metallic intermodulated robot fuzz is possible.
This fuzz shines when used for single string lead lines - Saturated multi-dimensional fuzz that blooms in between notes. With chords and multi-string playing, you can achieve much different effects - with cancelled out frequencies, metallic and noisy fuzz.
Handmade in Portland Oregon, the Spacerocket features an all discrete (no IC's!) tone path, military-spec wiring and the very highest quality components. Everything is neatly held in a super-duty USA-cast aluminum enclosure, topped with a durable vinyl faceplate. The True Bypass switching is provided care-of the heaviest-duty mechanical footswitch available, for a long trouble-free life.
There are two editions available, Blue powdercoat and unfinished Silver. Blue is limited to 20 pieces with blue indicator. Silver has a white indicator and is limited to 50 pieces.
Each pedal is numbered on the nameplate, boasting it's limited availability, and in addition each one is signed and numbered on the inside. The Spacerocket also comes with a transferable three year warranty, plus a lifetime discount repair plan.
