Create Unlimited Tones!

The 2-channel Xotic AC Plus pedal combines their popular AC Booster circuit with a highly flexible preamp. Channel A's Tone knob attenuates your mids and highs. The Boost button increases your lows and mids by 3dB, injecting your tone with extra grit and volume. Channel B's 3-band EQ creates plenty of sound-shaping options. The Comp button selects between Hard clipping, which yields early breakup and smooth overdrive, and Soft clipping, which offers late breakup and abundant headroom.

Channel A is smooth and relatively transparent, adding dirt to your sound without changing your fundamental tone. Channel B imparts a rougher quality, especially at higher gain settings. Both channels offer a myriad of tones independently, but it's when you stack them together that the fun really begins. Many of the guitarists here at Sweetwater use Channel A as a starting point, and Channel B as a highly tweakable lead boost, but the possibilities are truly endless. Grab an Xotic AC Plus pedal and see for yourself!

Tube Amp Crunch in a Box!

I'm a long time TS9 Tube Screamer user, but never liked it as a distortion generator. I've always preferred real tube amplifier distortion and used the TS as an added sustain and lubrication device for solos. The AC Plus will come in handy not only doing this, but adding another crunchy channel through the clean side of the amp. Combining both channels of this pedal is monstrous!

My go to drive pedal

I've been using the AC+ for several years now and I just can't find a bad tone yet. I love the compression control on each channel and when you combine them it sounds amazing. Other drive pedals get swapped in and out of my board, but the AC+ is there for life. :-)
