Echo-Plex Inspired Clean Boost
This clean boost reproduces the preamp stage of the Echoplex EP-3 tape delay unit. It is a small, durable pedal that can bring life to your clean sounds or push your rig into overdrive. For single coils, this pedal can fatten up your clean sound or boost the low-end. With humbuckers it provides a lovely sparkle and can accentuate high-end harmonics in a very musical way. There are two internal switches which control the bass boost and bright settings which allows for a wide range of tonal possibilities.
I always need to research and justify a pedal purchase. Price is a huge factor. Features, tone, and ease-of-use are also extremely important. This pedal is well-priced, sounds great, and could not be easier to use. When you're at a gig, you don't typically have a lot of time to mess around with settings on your pedals. It doesn't get any easier than one knob! And boy is it effective! "sparkle" is the only thing that comes to mind when I hear the complexity shine through my strat, tele or LP. It's one of those pedals that you may not want to turn off! and there aren't many pedals that sound this good that are this small! Changing things up on your pedalboard can get tricky, but not with this lil guy! very cool in my book. great tone tool
What do the tones of renowned guitarist such as Page, EVH and Johnson have in common? They all used the legendary echo machine EP-3 as a pre-amp.
We've captured that magic in a new Xotic Effects pedal, the EP Booster.
We've used the highest quality parts available with a discrete FET design and low impedance output, the EP Booster provides up to +20dB of unadulterated boost with multi-dimensional, shimmering highs and lows, and no ear fatigue. The internal DIP switches let you choose the boost frequencies, and EQ settings.
Housed in a small 3.5"x 1.5" x 1.5" case with blue LED and transparent knob, the EP Booster can be powered by 9-volt up to 18-volts.
A simple pure boost that pays reverence to the magical EP-3 and captures the celebrated tones of the world's most famous players.
