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 is a great pedal for a decent price. It has some versatility with the internal switches and can be placed at different places in your chain.I think if you want focus for your leads , it works well as a boost to a dirty signal. As a preamp in the front of the chain that is always on to add to your sound is also a good way to use it.I have been impressed with every Xotic mini that I have used and will buy more products from them.

      Comments about Xotic Effects EP Booster Guitar Effects Pedal:

      Most boost pedals I shied away from, because I wasn't down for something to color my sound. I wanted to find the most transparent boost possible; however, because of this pedal's small footprint, I tried it out.
      I ended up buying it BECAUSE of the sound coloration. The "bright" DIP switch inside the pedal gave it such a great tone that made my solos sing; when I was ready to be heard I was HEARD. The +20dB should be enough for anyone for a boost, but don't just count this as a boost pedal; you can put this on a distorted amp to give it more sustain and chunk up the tone, or if you like the colored sound you can put this as a preamp in front of your pedals and just set your amp's volume accordingly. I use this mainly for solo boosts, but there are many more applications you could use for this little beauty.

        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!
