Get A Dynamic Pedal Full Of Complex Harmonic Character - The Spaceman Effects Saturn VI Harmonic Booster Pedal
Simultaneously a harmonic-laden boost and low-gain overdrive, the Saturn VI eludes categorization. A dynamic pedal with up to 35db of gain, full of complex harmonic character.
Within its intuitive control layout, the heart of the Saturn VI lies with the Boost and Drive controls. Using Boost alone gives you 18db of harmonic gain to push your tubes through the event horizon. Adjusting the Drive control brings more harmonic distortion, while also increasing the total output of the pedal. Cranking both controls to max will yield 35db of boost, full of complex harmonic character.
Dynamic Harmonic Sparkle
The Saturn VI brings a general openness to the top end of the frequency spectrum, while keeping bass frequencies fully present, tight and controlled. Spaceman Effects have added a new Tone circuit to allow customization of the treble frequencies, so you can adjust for the perfect amount of sparkle. The harmonic distortion present is extremely dynamic. Play with a light touch and you’ll get a clean tone, but dig in and the Saturn VI will respond.
The drive texture within the Saturn VI is comprised of both odd and even harmonics. The Boost side of the pedal is focused on subtle even-order harmonics, while the Drive side increases these and brings odd-order harmonics to the mix. While it excels as a harmonic booster, the Saturn VI crosses into the realm of overdrive when using the Drive control. It also works well with other pedals, opening new sonic dimensions with boost, fuzz, and overdrive effects.
