Xotic EP Booster Mini EQ Effect Pedal
The Mastro EP-3 Echoplex was a tape-delay effect utilized by guitar icons such as Eddie Van Halen and Jimmy Page; the circuit inside that unit is precisely what Xotic based their own circuit around for the EP Booster clean boost pedal. The unit itself is quite small, which is a huge advantage for guitarists who have an already-crowded pedalboard. The design is simple, as it features just one footswitch and one knob. But there’s nothing little about the way this thing will make your guitar sound; while it does increase the volume like all boost pedals aim to do, it also adds a warm, vintage-like tonal quality to your sound. The result is somewhat magical, and needs to be heard to be believed.
