Un vrai couteau suisse (mais de fabrication allemande !)
K1000, 10.09.2018
Les + :
Sans le circuit "EMPH" engagé, l'Astrospurt est déjà un excellent phaser, qui se paramètre facilement avec en plus le potentiomètre de "MIX" qui permet de colorer le son différemment selon le réglage.
Bref plutôt simple de trouver le son qui passe bien. Les graves et les médiums sont beaucoup mis en avant et je trouve que cette pédale est utilisable que ce soit sur un son clean ou sur un son saturé (Les solos n'auront jamais aussi bien sonné, c'est un avis personnel).

Ce qui engendre la satellisation c'est bien ce réglage "EMPH" ainsi que les 4 dip-switch présents sous le capot. Le manuel (au passage très sympa tout comme la boite) aide à s'y retrouver parce que chaque combinaison de switch donnera un rendu différent (et plus ou moins bordélique d'ailleurs) !

La qualité de fabrication est top, les potentiomètres ont une course solide et le boitier est un vrai tank.

Bonus: Les deux petites LEDS qui clignotent au rythme de la modulation (Et le visuel est extra d'après moi)

Les - :

La pédale est assez difficile à apprivoiser si on se frotte au réglage d'EMPH, ça part vite en cacahuète genre baston de pistolets lasers.

Lorsqu'on active l'EMPH à l'aide du petit switch, on entend un (très) gros ploc si la pédale est déjà engagée. (Mais on peut prévoir le coup en la désengageant)

Ein Phaser, der nicht zu viel verspricht!
Hannes A, 30.05.2020
Vierstufiger JFET-Phaser. Made in Germany.

Optik/Haptik:
Das Gerät ist ein absoluter Hingucker auf jedem Pedalboard.
Hands down. Genauso in Das Design und die Bedienelemente wurden viel Zeit und Mühe investiert. Hier stimmt einfach das Konzept.

Sound:
Nach einigem Herumstellen habe ich hier die perfekte Lösung für mich gefunden. Man solle sich am Anfang von den zusätzlichen Optionen, wie der Astrospurt eingestellt werden kann, nicht abschrecken lassen, aber auch genau die Anleitungen sowie ein paar Tutorials sich angucken :)
Warscheinlich gibt es keinen Phaser, der so vielseitig ist wie der Astrospurt von KMA.
Von leicht fuzzigen Sounds bis zu alienartigen Geräuschen ist hier alles möglich, auch ein klassischer Phaser, so wie man ihn von anderen Herstellern kennt.

Besonders lobenswert waren hier die Leute von KMA selbst aus Berlin, die mir nach anfänglichen Schwierigkeiten aber schnell und unkompliziert geholfen haben!

Der Astrospurt ist genau für die Leute, die etwas mehr als einen gewöhnlichen Phaser haben wollen.

Klare Kaufempfehlung!

Un couteau suisse pour averti Phaser2.0
Guitariste/improvisateurLibre, 02.06.2018
Les possibilités sont immenses notamment avec les interrupteurs internes qui modifient drastiquement le son. Mais pour une utilisation optimale qui dépasse la simple pédale de phaser il faut un peu de temps.

Utilisable pour de nombreux timbres, le couplage avec une pédale de drive ou de distorsion fait des merveilles.

Petit 'défaut' tourner certains potars provoque un léger bruit, mais rien de trop flagrant.

Cette pédale en a sous le capot, vous êtes prévenu
