Spaceman Effects Explorer Red


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.

  • 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

The Explorer is the perfect vehicle for your auditory adventures – easily flowing with the current of your imagination, as you swirl along on your melodic voyage.

Hand-wired and built in Portland, Oregon, the Explorer 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.
