Silver Edition {Limited to 333 pcs}

The Atlas III is a medium-gain preamp booster. While staying relatively clean and transparent, the Atlas III adds subtle color and harmonic overtones, which become more apparent as you increase gain.

Specifically created for pushing the front end of tube amps, the Atlas III was designed to do so in a rich, warm way; while adding a touch of sparkle in the highs, and never muddying up the lows. The net result is a very natural sounding gain, without over-emphasizing any specific frequency range. The Atlas III obtains this tasteful organic coloration via its discrete preamp design.

The gain control is completely useable throughout its full rotation. Plenty of gain to overdrive your amp’s tubes, without melting anything (probably).

Inside of the Atlas III you will find a mini switch which allows you to select the phase of the pedal’s output, in or out of phase with the input source signal. This is extremely helpful when using a multiple amp set up, and for studio situations where phase becomes an extremely important factor.

The Atlas III is completely hand-soldered and handmade in Portland Oregon to the highest degree of quality possible. These are truly artisan-crafted tone devices, sparing no detail within or without. The Atlas III utilizes true-bypass switching via the heaviest duty mechanical footswitch available, while your tone is transferred via quality open-frame Switchcraft jacks. Open one up and you’ll see an unparalleled display of craftsmanship; with immaculate hand-soldered PCB, detailed military-spec wiring, and custom Spaceman heavy-duty battery connector. On top of the USA-cast aluminum enclosure sits a durable, engraved vinyl faceplate and vintage dim-able indicator light. This pedal is truly built to last a lifetime.

Current draw: 2.8mA(on); 0.9mA(off)

Kinsmen - Spaceman Atlas III Demo 07:00

Ask a normal human being...let me back up. Ask a normal guitarist to name their favorite boost, and you can get an array of answers. Most would draw from the pool of simple attenuating boost while a few would mention specific types of boost. Spaceman pedals are not for those people. Space man pedals are for the guitarist that desires perfection, detail and harmonic beauty. While only discerning ears can find the nuances of this preamp booster, you'd really have to be impaired to miss the harmonic intricacies evident in a slightly/mildly over driven amp. Upper frequencies jump out at you with a sheen that titillates but doesn't pierce your ear, while the lows stay firmly intact. While the pedal does produce volume, it does so while rounding out the sound so that the notes are clear, but not detrimental to your hearing. If the devil really is in the details, it's probable that while opening the back to peak at the gorgeous wiring, a few demons may fall out. But never mind the demons, the vinyl faceplate, dada-ware control knob and dim-able yellow indicator will make you forget all about them. Equipment list: Guitar: Matt Artinger semi-hollow custom #161 Amp: Two-Rock Classic Type III Cab: Matchless 4X10 Cables: Mogami/Monster/Lava Tephra Mic: SM7B Misc: Stymon Deco (for slapback) Atlas Settings: Intro 1: Off Intro 2: 20 Intro 3: 40 Rhythm Guitar: 40 Lead 1: 80 Lead 2: 100 Outro: 100
