OVERVIEW

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.

FEATURES
  • Provides up to +20dB of boost

Great tone starts here!

      Comments about Xotic Effects EP Booster Guitar Effects Pedal:

      This thingy will make your rig sound even better. I know my stuff sounds good, because that's the feedback ive always received. But this thing kicks the quality up even more so. Hard to explain. It's an EQ, and Aural Exciter/Sonic Maximizer for guitar. Plus it's internally adjustable. Just find which setting works best for your rig, and leave it. Pedals sounds better. It's worth every penny. It will stay on, all the time!

          I use this pedal with my Gibson L5 and vintage Fender amp and it faithfully boosts and improves the sound. I wouldn't turn on the amp without it.

              Comments about Xotic Effects EP Booster Guitar Effects Pedal:

              I no longer need to bring a 412 cab to get a big sound.Playing through a 112 cab I am now able to get the BIG SOUND that I like without carrying a 412 cab.The sound doesn't become over powering but instead thickens up to the point that my stage sound is now complete.Many of my guitar friends use an EP Booster for their solos with a couple of them using two having one always on and the other for solos.
              The EP Booster is small in size and should easily fit on any pedal board.Truely a Big Sound in a small package.

                So, your electric guitar isn't loud enough ? Get this and blow your amp's speakers out....lol

                Not really, but the decibel increase helps cut through the background noise when you need that "something extra" in your electric guitar rig.

                  I am absolutely BLOWN AWAY with this pedal! ~ WOW! WOW!! WOW!!! .... My '79 Les Paul is in love with it also! I was so contemplating changing out my pups because they just seems to be getting muddier and muddier (I have the original Dirty Fingers). But, HOLY SMOKES! It sounds better now then the day I bought it ... and I am the only/original owner. I have never heard my guitar with so much tone. Two Thumbs WAAAAAAAY UP!!!!!! .... This thing ROCKS!

                    sounds good, sturdy, built like a tank. heavy for its size, but is very compact. this is a boost that is meant to color your sound in a favorable way. so far i like it. not as versatile as spark booster, but sounds pleasing.
                    the dip switches are inconveniently located INSIDE; stupid choice there...

                    Interesting that at rehearsal space turned the volume to 11:00 to get the required clean boost, then At the last gig I had to back it off to about 8:00 to get the same boost with all the same gear in exactly the same setup! Great little pedal!

                      I'm really happy whit this boost pedal, it's just very good. It not only boosts the signal but also makes it more clean and clear, even withthe heaviest distortion, I think I wont need a new boost pedal in a long, long time!
