Deep Space Devices‘ Golem is a distortion pedal that features silicone diode and germanium diode circuits.

The Golem has controls for Power (volume), Rage (gain density), Form (tone) and Shift (high mids) as well as toggle switches for Tremble, Quake, Evolve and Mass.

Tremble and Quake act as twin toggle switches which direct the exaggeration of diode switching. With Tremble, the silicon diode sits in the left position while the germanium diode rests in the right position. In the middle position, the diode switch acts as a boost. Quake acts as a magnification of the Tremble functions to push the pedal to its capabilities’ apogee. Finally, experience pyramids becoming mausoleums as your tone lances through the throngs of distortion with the Evolve switch.

With the switch in the left position, the gain cuts slightly through the sinews of your tone. In the right position, the summit of this homunculus’ evolution will level obelisks into pedestals for sheer pandemonium as it becomes a God. Will you compress the Earth in the catacombs or macerate the world into dust and cinders?

The Golem retails for $169 and runs on 9-volt DC power (2.1mm negative center jack). To learn more, watch the videos below and visit Deep Space Devices.

Forged out of clay and christened in the core of Earth, the Golem has been born. This monolith delivers stone-crushing tones by delivering tectonic plate-scraping sounds.
Through the “Power” knob, you restrain the volume of the Golem. With the “Rage” knob, you control the density of the gain. The “Form” knob allows you to shape the tone from a pillar-like treble to a bass-heavy monument. With the “Shift” knob, you command the high mids from their tomb. The Golem also offers three toggle switches: “Tremble,” “Shake,” and “Mass.”

“Tremble” and “Quake” act as twin toggle switches which directs the exaggeration of diode switching. With “Tremble,” the silicon diode sits in the left position while the germanium diode rests in the right position. In the middle position, the diode switch acts as a boost. “Quake” acts as a magnification of the “Tremble” functions to push the pedal to its capabilities’ apogee. Finally, experience pyramids becoming mausoleums as your tone lances through the throngs of distortion with the “Evolve” switch.

With the switch in the left position, the gain cuts slightly through the sinews of your tone. In the right position, the summit of this homunculus’ evolution will level obelisks into pedestals for sheer pandemonium as it becomes a God.
