Radial Engineering’s North-Star combination overdrive and power booster was designed with rock-oriented country guitarists in mind, but its adjustable sonic characteristics and versatile overdrive circuitry make it suitable for any playing style. And no matter where the drive control is set, you will still be able to articulate every note. North-Star is equipped with a separate boost circuit that provides up to 24dB of clean gain to the signal. Players can connect other pedals for easy transitions from rhythm to lead tones. A true-bypass pedal, the effects loop can also be used to remove noisy, tone-sucking pedals from the signal chain. Powered by a standard 9V power supply, it’s built in a tough, pedalboard-friendly, 14-gauge steel chassis.
