    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!

    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!

    Seen the vids, Read the reviews - Purchased! To say this pedal is well made is a serious understatement! A real testament, that the manufacturer is serious about his product. I have put some tape over the led light as it was super bright and blinding me ! lol , I can still see if its on though as it shines thru the tape, but much duller which is ideal for me. I don't use the 3db boost option as i found it a lil too much "Mid" but the pedal has definitely added some sparkle to the sound even on min setting and i'll use it as most do as an "always on" pedal.. My Gretsch 6120 has just got a whole lot Twangier!

    A subtle little pedal that made such a big difference. I did not think it would make such a big difference until i switched it off. I wish i had it years before.
