What Do Spaceman Effects Say?

The Sputnik III is a unique all-germanium fuzz featuring vintage Soviet transistors. Offering an uncommonly wide range of fuzz tones, it truly runs the gamut: smooth, gritty, vintage, modern, thick, thin, buzzy, bassy, splatty, sputtery, noisy, velcro-ripping, controlled or completely off-the-rails. Astonishingly responsive and versatile.

Germanium fuzz has a long history in the world of musical effects. The nature of germanium, its variability and temperament, make it an interesting parallel to the musical mindset of the creators who utilize it. Sometimes smooth and warm, sometimes harsh and unpredictable, always sensitive and nuanced, germanium is an element of reflection. A mirror into its users. This range and scope is on full display with the newest version of our flagship fuzz pedal, the Sputnik III.

Complex textures, gritty crunch, beautiful sustain and character. It’s all there waiting for you to discover. As with all Spaceman pedals, the Sputnik fuzz series is an homage to the golden era of electronics and is brimming with vintage soul. Utilizing a NOS Soviet germanium diode and transistors, we’ve gone to great lengths to ensure the Sputnik III lives up to the reputation of its predecessors.

Hand-wired and built in Portland, Oregon, the Sputnik III features true-bypass relay switching with soft-touch footswitches. 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.


Characteristic of germanium fuzzes, all of the controls are quite interactive and a wide variety of sounds can be observed with experimentation. The Sputnik III incorporates the best features of both previous pedals. The transformer based pickup simulation of the Sputnik II ensures that the Sputnik III will behave anywhere in your signal chain. The footswitch actuated DRIFT mode has also been taken from the Sputnik II and enhanced with optional momentary functionality. DRIFT mode and SCAN control allow you to unleash the fury and unpredictability of the Sputnik III. With careful use of playing dynamics and control settings, DRIFT mode can yield a nearly infinite range of truly unique sounds. The tone control is a mix of both its predecessors. The toggle switch offers mid-scooped and flat settings in conjunction with the wide-range CALIBRATE tone control. Relay based soft-touch switching provides more durability and flexibility than ever before. Housed in a durable cast aluminum enclosure, the mid-sized form factor allows for an enhancement in function over the original Sputnik, and an enhancement in practicality over the Sputnik II. Step into your inner world and discover a new wellspring of creativity and boundless possibility with the Sputnik III.

Great Prices andl Service!

I was looking for a Sputnik III Fuzz pedal and couldn’t find it for sale with any of my usual online stores and then I came across one available on Pedal Jungle, who I’d not come across before.
I checked out the site and could see they were a husband-and-wife team who are into pedals, coffee and plants! Site looked good with lots of pedals I’m interested in so placed my order!
Got my confirmation straight away and all the way through the process I received emails keeping me in touch with the order and checking I received my pedal.

All very personal and friendly in a non-intrusive way that does feel like you’re dealing with real people and not a huge company!
Always happy to support fellow enthusiasts so I will be checking Pedal Jungle before my usuals the next time I want a pedal – and the prices are good too!


Thanks Darryl. I'm so glad we could help you out with this pedal and it was our pleasure to do so. Thanks so much for the purchase and great comments.
