WHAT’S A SPACE GNOME?

GNOME with white control knobs…

SPACE GNOME viewed from the top—DIRT (true valve sounding overdrive) and Spring REVERB***—both activated with footswitches!

Himmelstrutz SPACE GNOME, a sister of Himmelstrutz GNOME—now a bit bigger but still so slick & portable, with hips and sounds made in heaven, still a 100% analog, complete & competent guitar amplifier—this time with the DIRT Channel and a Spring Reverb*** switchable @ your feet! SPACE GNOME is designed and assembled in Sweden assisted by an all discrete Class A preamp (with a serial effects loop) and a Mosfet power amplifier of max 30 watts @ 8 Ω—which makes it LOUD!*

* if you don’t want SPACE GNOME loud but still want great tones, with the right feeling at your fingers, for example when recording—SPACE GNOME also has a “REC-OUT” jack for your tape recorder or DAW. We don’t mess with “IR's” as it’s too time consuming (+ has latency) and is annoying for a creative music creator/player and therefore not involved in the current Himmelstrutz environment as we don’t follow, mostly by random, just any possible trend!

In 2022 Himmelstrutz Elektro Art jumps into the amplifier world to make a new kind of, a different amp named Himmelstrutz 8. What makes this creation unique and new in this time is it's so small you can hardly see it and also free from digital functions and “IR's” you have to control from your mobile phone—it’s simply an analog & complete guitar amplifier of 8 watts @ 8 Ω with Bass, Mid, Treble & Volume controls with a serial effects loop—in a classic ”MXR” sized pedal format! That's it and this is probably the most real amplifier around at this time, with authentic valve ampy/bell-like qualities suitable for inspiring recordings, practicing and also for gigging; imagine the old king Marshall Plexi but much smaller, a short description would be it has clean, sparkling sounds on lower volumes and roaring, sustaining sounds @ higher volumes which cut through so well in any musical mix—while fitting in your pocket and also as a  member of your pedalboard!

What we don’t know here is that some dudes need more than 8 watts & one more important function in an amp while still being analog and thereby the GNOME amp project starts! What we, also, don’t know when developing the GNOME is that some dudes, especially girls, would like to have the DIRT channel footswitchable—and also a footswitchable Spring Reverb*** for making more romantic and spacy tunes which probably will lead to true monster hits!

Just as the GNOME the SPACE GNOME amp is built around a big tree of Class A pre amplifier components—no dead sounding integrated circuits/op amps with clipping diodes etc—with a serial effects loop and a Mosfet power amp delivering up to 30 watts @ 8 Ω which makes this rock n' roll lady LOUD. Isn’t it time now to rethink them old fashioned valve-thoughts and let yourself take an important step forward? Let’s jump!

Note: if you think 30 watt is too loud and you for sure dislike footswitchable DIRT- and REVERB functions in your amp, as you only want your overdrive(s) from overdrive pedals, check out the Himmelstrutz 8!

—————————
Question: Why also this so stupid Himmelstrutz SPACE GNOME amp? Isn’t it enough already with that laughable & dwarfy GNOME?

Answer: There’s no such thing as laughable or the rest of loud, immature expressions here! SPACE GNOME has a footswitchable spring reverb*** and also the DIRT channel is chosen by a footswitch. This could have been even worse.

*** as SPACE GNOME is smaller than any existing spring reverb unit we have chosen an alternative which sounds and feels like a spring reverb unit. Why cross the river for nonexisting water?

The GNOME is designed and assembled in Sweden—the foundation of all Himmelstrutz products—by the same guy who started this company in 2004.

HISTORY PRESENT FUTURE

The Old Style

Size / Weight / Sound / Feel / Beat!

Them good old valve amplifiers have been popular among musicians for about 7 decades and still are. The reasons for this are many; but in particular because of the sound, the feel and also the looks!

There's been many times when these good old valves (old fashioned) have been challenged to be replaced by more modern gadgets based upon solid state technology = transistor solutions or integrated circuits. A few times it's been not all bad, but most of the times we have heard / felt something important and deep is missing: the sparkle, the glass, the tactile dynamics so typical in them musical valves which for sure is tough to replace or even to compete with!

No way! In 2022 Himmelstrutz Elektro Art decided to give it a go and started with a remarkable amplifier project which came to be the Himmelstrutz 8, an 8 watt guitar / bass amplifier, this time—again!—to be compared to and compete with the great valve amplifiers!

What we didn’t know, while developing Himmelstrutz 8, was that some users needed even more power (+ more functions but still preferred a 100% analog amp and still simple) and thereby  GNOME was soon born.

SPACE GNOME on your pedalboard

If you plan to place Himmelstrutz GNOME on your pedalboard and want to use a suitable pedalboard power supply we have 3 suggestions for you.

1. CIOKS DC7 (has 24V DC/2A)

2. EVENTIDE POWERMAX (has 24V DC/2A)

3. STRYMON ZUMA (has 24V DC/1.5A)

You also need 2 wires to make the connections (centre plus) from the power supply to Himmelstrutz GNOME, for example:
