An amp enhancer that makes any rig sound better.

The RC Booster offers a super transparent 20db+ clean boost with an adjustable ±15dB two band active EQ that adds a wide range of harmonic content to your ideal sound. As a clean boost, it can enhance other pedals, such as "overdrive and distortion pedals," or you can crank the gain for a "crunch" sound. But, the RC Booster is so extremley transparent that many players find they leave it on all the time. It also features true bypass for eliminating any signal interference when switched off.

      Comments about Xotic Effects RC Booster Clean Boost Guitar Effects Pedal:

      This is the one I was looking for to give a quality overdrive tone. This one is, to me, perfect in every way due to it's manipulation of input signal. Bass and treble give amazing depth to what you think may sound rockin'. The gain is never overkill. This pedal's ability is the best of the best for preamp and overdrive. This is my favorite of all. Spend the money. They will ask how you got your sound, no doubt. Simply amazing. Yeah, 5 stars for sure.

          Comments about Xotic Effects RC Booster Clean Boost Guitar Effects Pedal:

          As explained to me: the 4 Xotic Boosters: EP is the preamp of an Echoplex, RC is the "Really Clean" boost, the BB is a tubescreamer style, and the AC booster is like adding the top boost section of an ac30. For my needs I wanted to add something to my clean tone, WOW this fit the bill!

          As a pro level country/blues/rock player I got by for years with a very simple setup of tele-> keeley compressor-> tubescreamer style or ocd->slapback delay->blackface fender amp and adjust volume knob to amount of boost. So I've been using this pedal as a fat clean lead tone for classic clean and a boost with my overdrive for more modern rock/country. It really has taken my fundamental clean tone and made it sound pro. This pedal was what my modest rig was missing. Some pedals sound great, but some are a serious investment in your sound. I would say this is an investment in my sound. This pedal gives your clean tone balls and sounds awesome juicing my SD-1, OCD, rat, BD-2, or OD-3! I don't see how you can go wrong with this pedal.

          Comments about Xotic Effects RC Booster Clean Boost Guitar Effects Pedal:

          Headline says it all. If I could only use 1 pedal for the rest of my life I would pick this one. Makes what ever amp your using sound even better. I leave it on all the time with the gain set low and vol right where I need it. Crank the gain knob up and nice tube sounding break up that's not harsh. If you are using a high gain amp it just adds to the crunch. This thing sings tone. I'm buying another one to keep on my smaller pedal board for small gigs. I love it that much. In fact I may buy the Ac and BB again too because no other pedal I have used does what Xotic does. Top quality tone all the way. Keep this thing on at all times and get an Xotic Ep boost for your solos. That's the ticket.

            Comments about Xotic Effects RC Booster Clean Boost Guitar Effects Pedal:

            Awesome pedal that sounds great right out of the box. Simply the best boost pedal I have ever played. I am using the RC Booster primarily as a clean boost for leads at gigs. Does not color my tone at all. It replaced my MXR Micro Amp that seemed to add some high end.

            I play an American Standard Strat through a Twin Reverb and the RC sounds great with the Fender cleans. Also sounds good with OD. Just seems to fatten up the sound and add some depth while maintaining the original tone.

            The thing that I like best about the pedal is that you have separate adjustments for volume, gain, treble and bass to dial in exatly what you are looking for. Turn up the gain if you want to add a little grit to your cleans or a little extra dirt to your OD.

            Sounds so good, I wouldn't mind having another one to leave on all the time and the second one for the boost.

              Comments about Xotic Effects RC Booster Clean Boost Guitar Effects Pedal:

              Fantastic basic high-quality preamp pedal with an added EQ bonus. Similiar to the other Xotic booster line, but much lower gain than the AC booster. I leave this on pretty much the whole set to add just a tiny bit of growl (not dirt) under my clean rhythm playing, this thing also works very well with another booster (I use Xotic's EP booster) which adds an additional element of shine to the overall tone. Brilliant in a tube amp rig but still is able to add some brilliance to a solid state amp setup (home recording setup is with a polytone). Pretty much perfect if you are using a backline often and have to use different amps night after night; helps preserve your tone. learn to use this in sync and behave with your Overdrive and perhaps another booster and you will see your tone come to life. RC > Fulldrive 2 > EP
