Transparent Boost with Added Gain Channel

The Xotic RC Booster-V2 provides you with super-transparent 20dB boost without altering your carefully crafted tone. And V2 offers an added gain channel for extra fatness. Take advantage of the +/-15dB range on the treble and bass EQ controls, and imbue your guitar sound with unbelievable harmonic complexity. The EQ controls also compensate for the extra bass boominess the volume boost may cause and are great for matching the response for multiple guitars. Here's a Sweetwater tip: run the RC Booster-V2 at 18-volts and enjoy the added headroom. Whether you're adding intensity to your guitar solos or simply compensating for a long cable run, the Xotic RC Booster-V2 belongs 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.

This pedal is awesome!!

If you want a transparent boost to keep your tone and just boost it louder look no further. This pedal is subtle but yet does so much at the same time. Also great if you want to add a little grit to your clean tone..or maybe you want to keep your exact tone and just make it a little fatter or brighter it does that too.Works great stacked with my Xotic AC.. Also great on the drive channel of my amp. You can keep it on with the gain all the way down just to enhance or give a little more of what you already have and then hit the second boost for a lead. So much you can use this for. Worth every penny. I also own the Xotic SP compressor as well as the AC booster. They are all awesome!!

Great Pedal

I keep this pedal on 100% of the time. It provides a ton of body to clean tone and plenty of transparent, open grit with the 2nd gain stage. Example of settings for AC15: Gain at 9 o'clock Volume at 1 o'clock Bass at 12 o'clock Treble changes between guitars. For a regular telecaster with single coils, I put it around 10 or 11 o'clock, but for humbuckers I'll keep it at 12 o'clock.

Customer service

ive never had better customer service from any company ever


I bough this to use as a "just breaking up" tone into a clean amp - and I got that and so much more! With the EQ you can boost treble or bass or both, or cut both back for a mid boost! Then you can kick it up to the second channel for a second level of gain! I'm exceptionally pleased with this!

Xotic nails it....

I received my RC Booster V2 two weeks back and since then I've not stopped playing my guitar... I was particularly looking for a clean boost pedal, but I'm now addicted to the warmth that this pedal adds to my tone. As advised by sweetwater I've powered it with 18v and i love the soft overdriven sound i get after boosting gain 2. This pedal is not only a clean boost pedal but it also adds a character to your tone... This one's going to stay on my board forever.My sales engineer Jonathan was very helpful and I loved the way Sweetwater handled my order.
