Xotic Effects

A simple pure boost that pays reverence to the EP-3 pre-amp and captures the celebrated tones of the world's most famous players.

What do the tones of renowned guitarist such as Page, EVH and Johnson have in common? They all used the legendary echo machine EP-3 as a pre-amp.
Xotic Effects have captured that magic in a new boost pedal, the EP Booster. Xotic Effects uses the highest quality parts available with a discrete FET design and low impedance output, the EP Booster provides up to +20dB of unadulterated boost with multi-dimensional, shimmering highs and lows, and no ear fatigue. The internal DIP switches let you choose the boost frequencies, and EQ settings. Housed in a small 3.5"x 1.5" x 1.5" case with blue LED and transparent knob, the EP Booster can be powered by 9-volt up to 18-volts.

        Comments about Xotic Effects EP Booster Guitar Effects Pedal:

        This is a great lil' pedal that will not be moving from my board for a long time. The EP Boost helps articulate individual notes and adds lushness to chords...it really completed the missing ingredient in my tone. Works best for me (worship band) after overdrive pedals and before delays/modulations - typically set level around 4. Solid construction, small footprint and added depth to tonal qualities.

          Comments about Xotic Effects EP Booster Guitar Effects Pedal:

          This pedal is great for adding a little depth and sweetness to your tone. I use it for both my overall tone and to step out of the mix on solos. paired with my fulldrive 2 I get amazing deep overdrive tones and ill run it before my carbon copy for a richer fuller delay tone. this pedal just takes my tone to another level. love love love this pedal.

            Comments about Xotic Effects EP Booster Guitar Effects Pedal:

            At low settings, it can be kicked in like a sound couture on a stereo. It makes a subtle, but beautiful, boost to the high and low end of your sonic spectrum regardless of the guitar you use. Adds a wonderful richness to single coils. There is an internal switch to turn off either, or both, the high and low end boost. Use a gain peddle for your humbucker? Turn off the treble boost and smooth off the edge of high gain settings.
            This peddle is most useful to musicians who must keep the volume down at their gigs and still handle a wide verity of music. Set it at the end of your signal chain and make your ears happy at low volume.

              Comments about Xotic Effects EP Booster Guitar Effects Pedal:

              I like the way the pedal enhances the articulation and brings the sound forward in clean, brown or a crunchy modes. The boost adds a finish to these sounds. Under heavier distortion it has lessened effect. I have not run 18volt dc through this pedal but I probably will once on my pedal board. really happy with the boost and how it is responsive to touch and volume pedal or pot adjustments from clean to a good solo mod too. On single coils Ep boost worked awesome for me on strats and teles and as well as the Les Paul humbuckers. If running a heavier distortion I have better results using my MXR micro amp for a kick to bring out front or get some squeal.

                Comments about Xotic Effects EP Booster Guitar Effects Pedal:

                You can use this to boost your sound from the front end if you like, but if you use a lot of gain I recommend the effects loop. Using the effects loop will let you boost the overall sound that you have and like. There will be some fattening and pronounced mid response, if you play lead, you will absolutely wonder how you have been able to make it all this time without it. You don't have to keep turning up to be heard, no volume wars! Set your rig volume, adjust for the amount of boost needed, and wait for your lead. I have seen some players run two in series through the loop. The sound you can get and the amount of boost is incredible, In fact my knob is rolled all the way back to the minimum amount and it is sufficient. If you want to cut through and be heard, with great sound without unwanted trash or compression, this is what you have been looking for. The pedal is so small, it is deceptive, and this thing is built like a tank. I would recommend that you find two right angled cables as this is small and not very wide, it makes for a nice neat layout. I suggest an external power supply (sans the battery) I use mine every night and I have an extra at all times in my rig bag. I also want to mention that I only use a two channel amp (Fender M80) and a (Fender Ultimate Chorus) now that I have this pedal, I now can truly do everything with almost nothing. My rig sounds awesome and is so simple I can setup in seconds. What do you have to lose? Go and try this now! You might not ever way to turn it off! It is that GOOD. CJWII

                  This is the best sounding booster pedal I have ever heard. Period. Get one. You won't regret it. I wish I had two. One I would leave on because the tone and sustain are improved, simply because of the way it sounds. The next one for boost.

                    Comments about Xotic Effects EP Booster Guitar Effects Pedal:

                    This is possibly the most useful piece of gear i have ever purchased! I recieved this pedal last night after a long trial of purchasing and returning various boost pedals (jhs banana,mooer pure boost,tc spark boost). This pedal puts them all to shame, providing a extremely clear and articulate boost with very low residual noise. Works great for pushing a clean amp to slight breakup for a hot blues tone, adding tube grit but not coloring the sound. It is capable of adding an incredible sparkle/shimmer to your clean tone at unity gain.

                    Best of all, it can push an already driven high gain amp into complete metal mayhem. Im running a gibson blueshawk (i know, not a metal guitar right?) through a blackstar series one 100W and 1960 lead cab. The cleans, and classic rock tones are to die for w/o the EP Boost, but i have a special place in my heart for metal. This thing pushes those passive P90s harder than an active emg but with tone to die for, allowing me to squeeze heavy brutal tones out of a semi hollow guitar. I couldnt be happier with this purchase and would have paid twice as much for this pedal!

                      The EP Booster is a very versitile pedal. You can run it in front of your amp to boost your existing tones or you can put it in your effects loop for an enhance tonality. I use the pedal in my effects loop and turn the dial at 10 o'clock or less for sound level. Your sound can go from 2D to 3D big!
