Is the North-Star an overdrive, distortion or power booster?
The North-Star is a dual-mode pedal. It is both a power booster and an overdrive.
Can I power the North-Star with any isolated power brick?
Of course! Just be sure that you provide the North-Star with 9-12V and a minimum of 60mA of current.
Can the effects loop be activated at the same time as the overdrive channel with one click?
The effects loop is a separate circuit from the pre-drive and must be engaged separately.
Can the effects loop be set so that it is always active?
Yes! Simply turn the boost level down (or set it where you see fit) and leave the boost channel active.
What is the benefit of ‘true-bypass’?
For purists, this allows the signal from the guitar to connect directly to the amp when the pedal is not active.
Can I power the North-Star with a battery?
No. The North-Star was designed with power hungry Class-A circuitry that will drain a battery in no time!
What is the signal flow for the effects loop, boost and overdrive?
Overdrive → Effects loop → Boost
