The Xotic EP Booster comes from a long line of boost pedals. But due to the huge diversity of pedals present in the market, it is possible to mix them up. So, let’s see what a boost pedal is good at.
A boost pedal is a unique type of pedal that increases the output volume of your guitar. It can also help you improve the saturation of your sound in areas rich with heavy rhythms. They don’t affect the tone or frequency of your sound, nor do they add special effects like fuzz. Now let’s talk about Xotic EP Booster.
Guitar heroes from the 60s, 70s & 80s didn’t know much about “True Bypass,” it was often quite the opposite since many pedals & effects had built-in buffers and preamps. These effects gave an extra bit of something to the legendary tones we hear on records.
One such effect was the Echoplex tape delay, released in 1959; players used this on many popular songs over the years. It had a preamp built-in that worked even when the delay wasn’t working, and it gave a great boost to the tones of people like Jimmy Page and Eddie Van-Halen.
The Xotic EP-boost is that part of the echoplex which provides this boost in a much smaller enclosure. Some people will use this pedal to boost their lead tones, but many users always have this running as everything sounds better with it on all the time!
The Xotic EP Booster is a booster produced by Prosound Communications Inc. (Xotic Guitars and Effects). Its design is very simple, and it consists of a single knob that you step on to boost your guitar signal. This pedal also has a switch you can use to alter the boost level and the EQ curve. It has been ranked as one of the best boosters of 2022.
The Xotic EP Booster is made from top-quality materials and provides up to 20 dB of pristine, unchanged boost. The effect produced by this booster sounds multi-dimensional, with controllable levels of highs and lows.
