Spaceman - Explorer - Six Stage Phaser
The perfect vehicle for your auditory adventures - easily flowing with the current of your imagination, as you swirl along on your melodic voyage.
The Explorer is an optical, photocell based analog phaser, featuring six swept stages. The unique control set provides an incredible range of ornate phasing with several selectable waveshapes, dedicated mix and volume controls, and CV capable expression input. We are excited to revisit this classic Spaceman circuit, now available in a smaller pedalboard friendly enclosure, with all of the deluxe features of the original. Sometimes liquidy smooth, sometimes chewy and lush, the fluid frequencies squiggle and flourish like the unrelenting ebb and flow of the sonic tide.
Explorer Standard Edition colorways offer vivid visual appeal to match their breathtaking tonality and thoughtful functionality.
