No Color, Just Boost

If you've found your ideal electric guitar tone, the Xotic RC Booster is the transparent boost pedal you need to bump up your volume without changing your sonic character. You have a generous 20dB of boost available, plus a +/-15dB range on the Treble and Bass EQ controls. Guitarists at Sweetwater find the EQ controls to be very effective at compensating for extra bass boominess the volume boost may cause, and also for matching the response for multiple guitars. Whether you're adding intensity to your guitar solos or simply compensating for a long cable run, you'll be well served with the Xotic RC Booster on your pedalboard.

Xotic: Boutique pedals, preamps, and more

Xotic was born in a small garage in Southern California in 1996 and quickly became known for high-quality, boutique bass guitars and bass preamps. These days, they've expanded the pedal line, crafting stompboxes that are played by some of the finest guitarists in the business. Their acclaimed AC Booster, RC Booster, and BB Preamp pedals remain some of their most popular pedals.

Simple sweetness

I am on my third one of these wonderfull little jems....just cant say enough good about these and how much I dig the simple but ever so subtle-complexity they offer...thank's xotic...(and dave snow/sweetwater)

Always on Pedal

I have had the RC Pedal as my "always on" pedal ever since it came out & am always buying a new one for a new board or as back-up. This take my strat & makes everything sound bigger. The best!!!


Bought this to use as a lead boost. I left it on by accident through an entire set and was really impressed at the depth and fullness it added. Kind of like a compressor, but much fuller sounding. May become an always on pedal on my board.

Buy this one too!

Please see my review of the BB for the full picture. If I had to choose between this or the BB, it would be this one. This you can leave on all the time if desired, to make your sound/tone stupidly fat N juicy, or set to punch up a solo, beef up other effects- your call, it's a do all. It plays nicely with the BB, sho nuff...

RC Boost by Xotic effects

You really won't know until you hear it. It is worth every penny to turn up your guitar, no matter what brand, and hear what it sounds like. So get your guitar ready to play. This pedal will really give you what you need for that magical change. This is only a clean boost with minimal gain. The results are amazing. The EQ is perfect. Run this pedal all the time. Perfect for a volume boost for solos. You will stand out, blend in and your band members will thank you for your new contribution. I have found that the price and overall quality to be in line. This is my favorite of all the Xotic Effects products. Wow was only one of the first single words I used to describe the quality. If the price is a concern, buy anyway if you can. I was glad I did. This one works by itself or very well with others. A clean boost like this is a great beginning to awesome tonal dynamics. This thing is solid. Pedal of the Year, I would say. I have had mine for two years and I will have it a long time. Rock on!!
