Hone Your Sound With An Array Of Tone-Shaping Options Using An Intuitive Medium-Gain Overdrive - The Spaceman Effects Apollo VII Pedal
The Apollo VII is a rich, medium-gain overdrive with an intuitive layout and diverse sound palette. Take it from smooth and classic soft clipping to open and gritty at the flip of a switch or kick it on to push your amp right over the edge. With an array of tone-shaping options to explore and inspire, let it propel your creativity into orbit.
Inspired by the incredible response to the Voyager I tremolo, Spaceman Effects have carefully extracted the drive and tone-shaping elements to create the Apollo VII. Familiar sounds and new features collide in this explosive new design.
The simple control interface houses new and refined features while offering the highly regarded tone of the original. As a tribute to the Apollo VII, NASA’s first three-person space mission, there are three controls: level, gain and tone. Each has been optimized to offer a wide variety of sounds, with up to 40dB of gain on tap. The toggle switch also provides three options: LED clipping, silicon diode clipping, and no diodes. LED clipping offers mid-range focused grit - this is the sound of the Voyager I. Silicon diode clipping provides a more compressed and aggressive sound with a smoother decay tail. With no clipping diodes in circuit, the Apollo VII becomes much more touch-sensitive and will growl and bark with astounding dynamic variation.
Hand-wired and built in Portland, Oregon, the Apollo VII features true-bypass relay switching with a soft-touch footswitch. On top of the cast-aluminum enclosure sits a durable, engraved vinyl faceplate and jewel indicator light. This pedal is built to last a lifetime, both on Earth or in the vacuum of space.
