North-Star™ FAQ


Can I use any multi-pedal power supply with the North-Star?

Yes, so long as you provide the North-Star with 9-12VDC, using a 2.1mm center-pin negative connector with at least 100mA of current.

Can I use the North-Star with a battery?

No. The Class-A circuitry of the North-Star is power hungry and will drain a battery in no time.

Is the North-Star True-Bypass?

Yes! This ensures that you get the pure natural tone of your guitar, as if it were plugged directly into your amplifier.

Can the effects loop be set so that it is always on?

Only if you keep the booster engaged constantly - you can turn down the booster gain to accomplish this. Alternatively, you can place your additional pedals before or after the North-Star in the signal chain.
