An awesome lead boost pedal
My xotic RC Booster is quite different from the original. Mine is homemade by my father and it has a different chip in it. The chip that's in the normal RC Booster has a Mosfet-preamp. Mine has a J-fet preamp which makes it a little warmer and more responsive than the normal RC Booster. I use it for a lead boost for both my Brian May and hard rock sounds. I love this thing to pieces!
It's really an overdrive. Or is it?
Sure you can use it as a clean boost, and it sounds great and transparent. But give it just a bit of gain and it produces a really full, compressed sounding tone that's not quite overdrive, but not quite clean. I have two overdrives and two distortions, but this little pedal surprised me. Now I'm using it as much as any of the other drives. It also does a fantastic job of goosing the overdrive and distortion pedals. Xotic is killing it with some awesome products!

The RC Booster offers a super transparent 20db+ clean boost with an adjustable ±15dB two band active EQ that adds a wide range of harmonic content to your ideal sound. As a clean boost, it can enhance other pedals, such as "overdrive and distortion pedals," or you can crank the gain for a "crunch" sound. But, the RC Booster is so extremley transparent that many players find they leave it on all the time. It also features true bypass for eliminating any signal interference when switched off.
