Based on a mutual love for sound design and interstellar aeronautics, Zak Martin and Paul Anthony Troiano founded Spaceman Effects in 2009 in Portland, Oregon. This special sonic partnership has resulted in some of the most stunning and sought-after effects in the entire pedal industry today.
You don’t even have to hear a Spaceman Effects device to know you’re getting something super special. Every single detail on the outside and inside of these pedals just ooze next level craftmanship. From the bold and crushing flagship fuzz tones of their Sputnik III Germanium Fuzz, the sweeping and screaming drive tones of the Polaris Resonant Overdrive, to the lush analog modulations of their Aurora Analog Flanger, Delta II Harmonic Tremolo or Explorer 6-Stage Phaser. The foundation of each Spaceman pedal feels known, but the tones are sure to send you directly into the unknown depths of outer space.
“Even if NASA got into the pedal game, I don’t think their creations would hold a candle to the epic work of Spaceman Effects. Their pedals seriously feel like they’re made by aliens. They’re fully aware of how we do things on earth, but also know that their space tech can take our humble earthly designs to new far reaching sonic regions. I dare you to try the Sputnik III or Aurora and not instantly think to yourself ‘Dang! I can’t live without this pedal in my life!”
