Tom Morello’s Digitech XP300 Space Station
The Digitech XP300 Space Station pedal could be seen on Tom’s pedalboard starting from around 2017.
Tom got the pedal sort of as a joke since he often tells the story of how Digitech released this pedal after he recorded the first two albums with RaTM, and the pedal was Digitech’s way of trying to take or recreate that sound. He jokingly says that he got the pedal in order to take those sounds back.
There’s also an old DigiTech Space Station. In the mid ’90s, DigiTech basically tried to steal all of my sounds and put them in a pedal and called it the Space Station [laughs]. I got one of those and I started stealing some of their sounds back.Tom Morello’s ‘The Atlas Underground’
Even though Tom jokes that the pedal is “crappy”, it’s actually pretty sought after. You’ll find used pedals for upwards of $600, and for those that come with the original box and are well preserved, the price shoots up to $1000.
