Hone a Relentless, yet Liquidy Smooth Sonic Tide with The Spaceman Explorer 6 Stage Phaser Pedal in Red

The Explorer is an optical six stage analog phaser, lovingly handcrafted with Spaceman effects' hyper detailed approach to usability, and tone. Named after the first satellite put into orbit by the United States in 1958, the Explorer was the first phaser launched by Spaceman. Years later, they are pleased to bring you a small form factor reissue of this classic circuit with all 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.


  • All analog signal path
  • 6 stages of optically swept phase shifting
  • Wide range LFO with 5 waveshapes
  • Manually swept filtering abilities
  • Up to 24V capable for high headroom use cases
  • CV/EXP options for even more user control
  • Full featured controls in a compact form factor


More Than you Bargained for

Beginning with the VOL control, you can always dial in the perfect volume for your phase tone. The MIX control is one of Spaceman's favorites, as it gives you the ability to blend in additional dry signal for a pleasant, subtle phasing effect. This control also has a secondary function: pitch modulation when set to 100% wet. RES adds feedback, which makes for those over-the-top phase tones we all know and love. RANGE offers unique control over the low frequency extension of the phasing. At its lower settings, only the higher frequencies are phased – useful for dialing in vibrato and rotary speaker tones. Turning up the RANGE control stretches the phaser’s reach into very low frequencies which is especially great for slow, deep phasing.

The wide range RATE control allows for both extremely slow, and extremely fast modulation. Five wave shapes are available via the SHAPE control. Sine, Ramp Down, Ramp Up, Triangle, and Square. The sixth position on this control, the Manual setting, disconnects the LFO and freezes the phase sweep. Using the RATE knob, you can then control the position of the sweep manually, for unique tone-shaping possibilities. Saving the best for last, the Explorer includes an CV/EXP pedal input. When using the five LFO wave shapes, the expression input controls the speed of the LFO. In manual mode, the expression input sweeps the phaser directly. RATE sets the highest point while RANGE sets the lowest point of the sweep. This allows for very cool “wah-pedal” style phase sweeping, especially when combined with the RES control.
