Rocket Surgeon Starlifter Bass Preamp and DI Now Shipping

Rocket Surgeon Effect Pedal Laboratory StarLifter Bass Preamp/DI

After unveiling the pedal at the 2019 Winter NAMM Show, Rocket Surgeon is now shipping the Starlifter Bass Preamp and DI. The box offers a three-band EQ with sweepable mids as well as a voicing contour switch with modern, flat, and vintage settings.

“The line out provides plenty of gain to make any amp or powered cabinet sweat,” the company writes. “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.”
