I LOVE Pedals Day #25: Nordstrand Audio

You could WIN a Starlifter EQ/DI from Nordstrand Audio in today's I Love Pedals giveaway! Ends Feb. 26, 2022.


Starlifter EQ/DI

Explore galaxies of tone with the new StarLifter bass preamp/DI pedal, offering top notch sound quality with a simple accessible feature set with clear and easy to use controls. It provides a killer clean DI signal that can either bypass the EQ or take advantage of the powerful tone shaping qualities of the carefully designed contour switch and the 3 band eq which features a sweepable midrange control. The line out provides plenty of gain to make any amp or powered cabinet sweat. A tuner out, mute switch, and switchable input impedance add real work flexibility. Get on board the StarLifter and take your tone to the stratosphere.
