The Fifth Anniversary Reissue Spacerockets consist of four limited editions. Different from the original, the reissues feature green painting on the faceplates instead of blue, with a heavier-duty toggle switch. The Black Edition features a white LED, while the other editions include green LED's. The Chrome Edition features custom engraved knobs, while the Textured Silver Edition features aluminum knobs.
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 engraved faceplate. The True Bypass switching is provided care-of the heaviest-duty mechanical footswitch available, for a long trouble-free life.
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.
