Exotic RC,AC,EP Booster

Anyone care to explain these and your experience with them. I'm using a VooDoo Labs Giggity at the moment & curious about the Exotic pedals. Seem that a lot of you guys are using 'em.

The only one I have is the BB Preamp. I think it's the best pedal I've bought in years. I actually sold two of my dirt pedals after getting this one. I've had it for 6 months and have not regretted selling the other two. I might sell off some more and get an AC or RC also.

I ran across a good deal on a used EP Boost awhile back and bought it. They're said to be very good for warming up a sterile sounding amp and a lot of players will run them at unity gain just for the effect. I don't see you having that problem with the '57 Twin. I play a tweed myself and so far haven't found much use for it. All the same, it's a very nice pedal. The construction looks first-rate and it sounds great through the Marshall MG-10 I keep in my shop. I'd probably leave it on all the time if I had a SF Twin or something that would benefit more from the effect.

Thanks for the feedback Paul. Using the Giggity for a slight boost. Cool pedal that you can really dial in the sound your after. Brighten or darken the tone.

Short answer:

BB and AC quite versatile but tend toward darker and more compressed tones.

RC much loved very effective clean boost with lots of tone control and a bit of grit available.

EP REALLY widely loved more or less clean boost that adds some harmonic content and boosts both lows and highs some. A pedal for some BIG on your tone.

Here's a comparison of the AC/RC/BB variants...



Here's my take on the EP...

I've been wanting to check one out. The demo is impressive.

I use a BB and EP in my rig... EP is always on, just adding some sparkle. I run it at 18v too with bright switch on FWIW. It's not even accessible - it's under the riser of the board. BB gets used for a Marshally creamy tone ala Clapton. It's more mid scooped than the AC is and a bit more dark, the AC has a beautiful midrange quality to it yet still somewhat dark. RC is very gritty, more similar to a Blues Driver or something like that.

I've tried the RC and AC and I really want both. I really like the qualities they have. I think using RC for low gain, AC for medium gain, BB for high gain, and EP for solo boosting would work nice on a small board.

I really like the Xotic pedals.
