The Sputnik III takes Spaceman’s famous all Germanium deluxe fuzz to the next level with features from previous versions as well as new functionality. At the heart of this interactive device is a vintage Soviet clipping diode and Germanium transistors which impart a special warmth and compression, unlike modern components. The Range knob provides a wide array of fuzz gain while the tone can be altered with the Filter toggle and corresponding Calibrate knob, which sweeps through an impressive range of EQ slopes. A big part of the Sputnik’s fame was due to the Drift mode, which has been included in all its glory with a separate soft footswitch that can be momentary or latching. The Drift’s level of fuzz corruption and self-oscillation are dialed in with the Scan control, which can offer gated fuzz or squealing tone generator sounds that combat your guitar’s signal in musical and not-so-musical ways.
You can also be sure that the Spaceman Sputnik III is handbuilt in Portland OR with great attention and includes an internal transformer, which means this Ge fuzz can be placed anywhere in your chain without negative affects to its dynamics or response.
