Product Description

Pure and simple, built from high quality components this booster offers up to 20db of gain without messing up your tone. Internal switches allow you to shape the EQ curve of the pedal and a low profile and versatile operating voltage means it will fit neatly onto your pedalboard. A top quality preamp or solo boost as used by the pros.

Here's what Xotic say about the EP Booster:

What do the tones of renowned guitarists such as Page, EVH and Johnson have in common? They all used the legendary echo machine EP-3 as a pre-amp. We've captured that magic in a new Xotic Effects pedal, the EP Booster.

We've used 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.

A simple pure boost that pays reverence to the magical EP-3 and captures the celebrated tones of the world's most famous players. The EP-Booster,great tone starts here!

Mr. Rowan Baylis25th Apr 2023

I bought the EP Booster on David Grissom's recommendation, and I can instantly see why he keeps one on his board. It's the ultimate "always on" pedal if you want to use it just to sweeten your tone, but it's also rendered my overdrives semi-redundant as a transparent gain stage. It's really flexible and definitely trying before investing in other gain pedals.

The Xotic EP Booster works great with harmonica (particularly with the internal trim switches)... use to drive pre-amp valves of an amp and/or stack with low gain pedals for direct to PA,set up. Adds a little extra crunch and just makes it all sound 'better'. There are other cheaper clones ... but will they be guaranteed top notch as this?.. this is sold heavy build with small footprint ... met my hoped expectations.

Why haven’t I bought a boost pedal in the past? Totally changes your sound for the better and I prefer to leave this pedal as always on. Fully recommend getting one if your thinking about it. This Xotic EP booster is a small boutique pedal and is built like a tank!
