The OSTARA kit was proudly produced in Calgary Alberta, Canada. It is one of the first of its kind, a “dead bug”-style point-to-point effects pedal kit.

Differences between the OSTARA and the OSTARA Op-Amp include:

  • “Full moon” artwork
  • Transistor amplification for a colourful boost
  • 0dB of gain at 50% knob travel

A transistor boost increases your guitar signal which can produce a multitude of different saturation effects depending on where it is in your signal chain. Place it before your fuzz or distortion pedal to apply more gain, or place it after your effects chain to saturate your amp’s preamp tubes.

This style of boost pedal can attenuate your signal too. With the knob in the centre (50%), the output volume is roughly the same as the input volume. Turning it left attenuates the signal while turning it right boosts the signal up to ~20 db.

Every pedalboard needs a transistor boost! Build your own DIY boost pedal with this point-to-point kit!

Always solder in a well ventilated area, and never breathe solder fumes.
