If you like the rolling growl of a good sustained overdrive, imagine having a bed of tremmed-out fuzz to lay it on. What if you could then fine-tune or sequence that wavy overdrive sound? Or maybe you want a cutting fuzz mixed in with that crisp clean so when it’s time to hit your boost, there’s another layer of grit adding subtle turbulence to those juicy amp sky tones. That’s the dream behind the Spirit in the Sky - a boost that allows you to create texture underneath.
So what is this pedal?? An optical tremolo? Correct. A fuzz (Ram’s Head)? Correct. A fuzz in parallel with a lush, fat, sustainy JFET boost? Correct. It’s hard to classify a pedal that can be a warm surfy tremolo one minute and a face-melting fuzz the next. It’s really the range of nuanced textures that make this thing sweet. Whether sustained ambient drones or sliced-up, pulsating throbs, you’ll find yourself in the smooth highs of a celestial universe.
- Parallel boost/fuzz - controls include: gain—boost // tone and sustain—fuzz // blend
- Analog optical tremolo - controls include: rate, shape (square to sine wave), and depth
- Flow toggle (A/Bs the tremolo to either post-fuzz or post-boost)
- Tremolo on/off stomp switch
- Master on/off stomp switch (affects the tremolo as well)
