Super wide range control that makes you rethink the definition of "Booster."

The Xotic AC Booster Overdrive Guitar Effects Pedal creates a warm and pleasant sound by using the finest quality parts available. The AC Booster is a natural sounding "overdrive" pedal. Not "heavy" distortion, but a sweet thick overdrive with an "open" non-compressed feel. It's capable of a 20dB+ boost with an adjustable ±15dB two band active EQ, which adds a wide range of harmonic content to your ideal sound. The super wide range gain control allows for enough gain for it to work as a distorion pedal when turned all the way up. Equipped with not only boost Gain but also Treble and Bass controls that allow you to adjust your sound anyway you like. The AC booster features true bypass for eliminating any signal interference when switched off. Can be used with AC adaptor (optional) or 9V Battery.

      This pedal sounds too muffled. The muffled overdrive sound is not worth the price.

        Comments about Xotic Effects AC Booster Overdrive Guitar Effects Pedal:

        Xotic AC Booster
        Very reactive Volume, Gain, Bass and Treble controls, very easy to use, and quite transparent. It sounds natural, kind of like the amp is cranked but at a usable volume. It also allows the sound of the guitar to come through, as well as being reactive to volume and tone controls. Some OD pedals color the guitar in a bad way. I personally use it in front of a TS9 through an old bandmaster. The ts9 is set up for a little bit of OD, and then I kick on the AC booster for extra volume and gain for solos. The volume boost is crazy, I leave the volume control almost off with the gain at 2 o clock and it seems to almost double the volume, so you can more than use it for a clean boost. Its the kind of pedal you could leave on all night.

        I would replace it if it was stolen. And if you're looking for a natural sounding, warm, cranked tube amp style overdrive, I recommend trying it out, if you're looking for a more compressed mesa-boogie type overdrive, it may not be right.

            Comments about Xotic Effects AC Booster Overdrive Guitar Effects Pedal:

            Don't pay the additional money for a ZenDrive. This equals and in some way surpasses the ZEN. It is a little fatter which helps on single coils (strat/tele). Checked them side by side in a blind test. I chose the ac everytime. No, it does not have as much hype, so if you want to impress with a name instead of a sound, pay the extra money and get the ZEN.
