Xotic Effects RC Booster:
The best characteristic of the RC Booster is that it has no character at all.
By connecting the RC Booster between your guitar and other effect pedals, it will sustain your original guitar sound all the way to amp, as well as emphasizing any effects sound characteristics. It also acts as a buffer, fighting against signal degradations caused by long cable runs and electromagnetic noise.
The GAIN control has the characteristics of a clean tube amp and by fine turning it you can create a bold and smooth sound which resembles the sound of an amp with its volume cranked.
The RC Booster, in addition to its GAIN control, also comes equipped with VOLUME, TREBLE, and BASS controls that allow you to contour your sound anyway you like. Switching is true bypass, eliminating any signal interference when it is switched out. It also works great with electric bass gutar and acoustic guitar.
The RC Booster is all hand wired and hand crafted in the U.S.A., and can be used with AC adaptor (optional - neg tip) or 9V Battery.

REVIEWS & USER COMMENTS:
HARMONY CENTRAL USER REVIEW 9/18/2005:
"I play in a variety/dance band that performs everything from Patsy Cline to Van Halen. I run the RC Booster all night and it seems to contribute a little "something" to every style I encounter. Brings your rig to life."
HARMONY CENTRAL USER REVIEW 8/15/2005:
"I play world, ambient, sublime type music with the odd folk, blues and rock. I have been playing for over 25 years and I have to much gear to mention. As I said I have 18 guitars, keys, modules, effects.. etc. Well there is not chance it will be lost or stolen as I mentioned I don't gig live but only do recording with it. But if by freak of nature it vanished into thin air I couldn't get another one fast enough! I use it all the time. It has become an integral piece of gear in my arsenal. As I said above this is probably the best pedal I have ever purchased. If you don't own one yet... you will after you hear one. I have been looking for a really clean transparent pedal like this for a lot of years and I am happy to say this one fulfills my needs. I have a recording engineer degree and have been told I have golden ears by the bands I record. So take don't take my word for it but go and try one out and you will be sold."

"Hands down the best clean boost. I had the Fulltone Fat Boost and it was a great pedal as well but I found it put a little mid range on top. That is okay but I wanted something totally transparent but still part of the sound. This pedal hits the amp just right. The EQ bands are right on the money. Having control over the high and Low really makes this great. I use this pedal on every pedal board I use. From my Marhall JTM 45 to My Fender Vibrolux and on to my VHT 50st it just works and works great. This is my favorite boost pedal. Xotic really listened when they designed it. Everytime I track it just sits perfectly in the mix. You get all the definition without the coloration... Stop looking for the Best Booster you just found it!"
HARMONY CENTRAL USER REVIEW 3/19/2005:
"Besides a tuner - this belongs with every guitar players effects. no it doesn't warble or add gobs of distortion or make wacky sounds - it actually helps you sound the way you want. I really can't think of another pedal I can say this about."
HARMONY CENTRAL USER REVIEW 12/27/2003:
"This is by far the best boost pedal I've tried. Hell maybe the best pedal I've ever tried. I say that because this pedal does exactly what it was designed to do. It produces such a wonderfully clean boost to my amp without coloring the tone whatsoever. The treble and bass controls are voiced beautifully and I haven't had to adjust them yet from their respective 12 oclock position. The gain will add a fair amount of dirt but never reaches the "tube screamer" category thank goodness. Another great feature of this pedal is it's quietness. Even with gain fully peaked and the volume cranked substantially I never heard a hum or a buzz. If you're looking for a boost pedal to push your amp but retain the natural tone it already gives you, then this pedal is the answer. Try one for yourself and I think you'll agree it just doesn't get any better than this."
