overview

so good, you’ll alwaysleave it on!

What do the tones of renowned guitarist such as Jimmy Page, EVH and Eric Johnson have in common? They all used the legendary echo machine EP-3 as a pre-amp. We’ve captured that magic in the Xotic Effects pedalboard staple, 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.

need more headroom?you got it!

The Xotic “Voltage Doubler” is a step-up converter that takes 9 volts DC and boosts it to an output voltage of 15 or 18 VDC (max current draw 80mA).

Why do you need a voltage doubler? Higher voltage levels result in more headroom. When you boost the voltage your find your Xotic pedals will get much more dynamic, more headroom, top end and brightness, less compressed sound.
