This pedal is the secret to push your pickups to a great bright and clean sound. And the better secret is the DIP switch inside!! Great. (Posted on 1/15/15)

I just got it today and I am very impressed with the tone. It seems to make the guitar sound clearer. I was looking for boosting my fave drive pedals for solos but I see it very useful for clean tones as well. I'm getting a second to also put on my "spare" board. (Posted on 12/10/14)

Wow. This pedal is just awesome. When I was growing up (1960s) and just starting out on guitar, my older cousin had an Echoplex. It was always in his signal path. Now I know why. Small footprint on my overcrowded board, BIG difference in tone and definition. And it plays well with others! Love it. (Posted on 5/7/14)

Awesome Boost  (By Matthew )

I tried this thing out in a store one time and this is an awesome boost pedal. Doesn't get dirty when you boost to about 1:00 either. Loads of volume and doesn't color your tone. For me, I would definitely choose this boost over any other. The Xotic effects pedal company rocks!! (Posted on 2/12/14)

You don't need this pedal, well that's what I thought. And denied myself the EP boost .Then my other guitar player says he can't hear my solo's ?.
So yeah you don't need it until to you get it and realize how much difference it makes, but you don't need it. If you like your solo 's to be heard or like the extra presence and great tone and know the difference between crap and tone. Then just get it - small - friendly - flexible - damn good looker too. But you don't need it. Well I do. (Posted on 10/7/13)
Amazing pedal in a little box!  (By Joseph)

This little guy is always on just to goose my tone a little. Push the amp into the sweet spot, and if needed just crank the knob up and get some sweet sounding gain too. Best part is it didn't break the bank and takes up little space on my board. Much more pedal for less money than more popular boutique pedals. I never leave home without it. It's just what the doctor ordered. (Posted on 8/15/13)

I don't know that I could play my rig without this pedal being always on. It adds so much and is hardly noticeable, until you turn it off! (Posted on 7/6/13)

Love this pedal, it gives a sparkling clean boost that is perfect for coupling with other pedals. Not only that but with the internal switches it allows you to really bring out the tones you want depending on your purposes.

Xotic EP Booster

The Xotic EP Booster is a discrete FET preamp pedal with a low impedance output. The EP Booster was based around the classic preamp side of an Echoplex and produces a shimmering boost tone that adds some high end sparkle and definition. The Xotic EP Booster features up to 20db of gain on tap and two internal DIP switches to customize the boost. One is a Unity Gain and the other is a Bright switch. The default setting is Bright on/Unity Gain off. This provides extra sparkle for the darker sounding instruments and is great for that extra edge or shimmer. The Unity Gain makes the boost at 0db at the fully counter-clockwise position and with the switch off you get a 3db boost at the fully counter-clockwise position. By turning off the Bright Switch you can get a full frequency boost that is transparent and gives you back what you put into it. The Xotic EP Booster is a versatile boost pedal with more options than it appears. For that classic tone you've been searching for, check out the Xotic EP Booster.

Xotic EP Booster Features:

  • Internal Switches for Unity Gain and Bright
  • Discrete FET Preamp
  • Up to +20db of Gain
  • 9-18vdc Operation
