The pedal features four toggle switches giving options of boost, silicon diodes, and germanium diodes.

Gadsden, AL (May 11, 2018) -- Deep Space Devices has a knack for massive tones and they made sure that we felt the Earth shake with this monolith of an overdrive, the Golem, that brings stone-crushing tones with tectonic plate-scraping sounds.

At first, it may seem to appeal to doom players and the like, but the Golem is designed to give you versatility in shaping your sound while having the ability to bring ground shaking tones. The Golem is forged with four knobs, “Power” (Volume), “Rage” (Gain), “Form” (Tone), and “Shape” (Mid) as well as four toggle switches, “Tremble” and “Quake” both being diode switchers giving you options of silicon, germanium, or overall boost effect, “Mass” giving you bass/mid boost, and “Evolve” which changes the entire overdrive into a tone shaping drive or into a earth quaking monument.

The Golem offers the following features:

  • Four knobs giving control of volume (“Power”), gain (“Rage”), tone (“Form”), and high mid (“Shape”) as well as four toggle switches giving options of boost, silicon diodes, and germanium diodes – “Tremble” and “Quake” – bass/mid boost – “Mass” – and style of overdrive effect – “Evolve”.
  • Die-cast titanium cases offer exceptional durability for all players
  • True bypass on/off switch
  • 9-volt operation and standard DC input

The Golem pedal carry street prices of $169.00 and can be purchased directly from the Deep Space Devices online store at

Luthier Maegen Wells recalls the moment she fell in love with the archtop and how it changed her world.

The archtop guitar is one of the greatest loves of my life, and over time it’s become clear that our tale is perhaps an unlikely one. I showed up late to the archtop party, and it took a while to realize our pairing was atypical. I had no idea that I had fallen head-over-heels in love with everything about what’s commonly perceived as a “jazz guitar.” No clue whatsoever. And, to be honest, I kind of miss those days. But one can only hear the question, “Why do you want to build jazz guitars if you don’t play jazz?” so many times before starting to wonder what the hell everyone’s talking about.

A modern take on Fullerton shapes and a blend of Fender and Gibson attributes strikes a sweet middle ground.

A stylish alternative to classic Fender profiles that delivers sonic versatility. Great playability.

Split-coil sounds are a little on the thin side. Be sure to place it on the stand carefully!


Fender Player Plus Meteora HH


After many decades of sticking with flagship body shapes, Fender spent the last several years getting more playful via their Parallel Universe collection. The Meteora, however, is one of the more significant departures from those vintage profiles. The offset, more-angular profile was created by Fender designer Josh Hurst and first saw light of day as part of the Parallel Universe Collection in 2018. Since then, it has headed in both upscale and affordable directions within the Fender lineup—reaching the heights of master-built Custom Shop quality in the hands of Ron Thorn, and now in this much more egalitarian guise as the Player Plus Meteora HH.
