Spaceman WOW Signal Fuzz Brushed Gloss Grey


August 15th, 1977: Earth received its first message from the depths of outer space. The Big Ear radio telescope at Ohio State University picked up a strong 72-second signal from the constellation Sagittarius, detected by astronomer Jerry R. Ehman. Circling the frequency code of the signal, 6EQUJ5, on the computer printout Ehman wrote, "WOW!" causing the alien message to become forever known as "The WOW! Signal."

Two precise values by different astronomers were given for this mysterious frequency, 1420.4556Mhz & 1420.356Mhz. Hydrogen resonates at a frequency of 1420.40575177Mhz, which is near dead center of the two values. Since hydrogen paired with oxygen creates water, the building block for life, this was a meaningful frequency for researchers. Was intelligent life out there trying to communicate with us?

The WOW! Signal was never heard again, despite several searches with a multitude of equipment. At Spaceman, we haven't given up on extra-terrestrial communication and through much research and development with a group of our country's greatest stargazers, we have created a way to speak back to our friends in space. Working with a group of audio research scientists known as The Dandy Warhols, an Alien Fuzz Communicator was born, dubbed The WOW Signal.

This device is like no other we've come across. The main fuzz manipulator has a wide gain range and utilizes a mix of modern silicon transistors and a vintage Soviet germanium transistor. This signal can then be modulated in a unique way by a low-frequency oscillator, which can be fine tuned to transmit the desired message to our friends in deep space.

Completely hand-soldered and handmade in Portland, Oregon, the WOW Signal utilizes true-bypass switching via the heaviest duty mechanical footswitch available. Open one up and you’ll see an unparalleled display of craftsmanship. Thick, high-quality PCB along with detailed military-spec wiring, using vintage US made heavy-gauge stranded wire. On top of the cast aluminum enclosure sits a durable, engraved vinyl faceplate and red jewel indicator light. This fuzz is built to last a lifetime. Each pedal is numbered on the nameplate, boasting its limited availability and in addition each is signed and numbered on the inside. The WOW Signal also comes with a transferable three year warranty, plus a lifetime discount repair plan.
