Xotic EP Booster

After ditching another boost pedal I succumbed to the hype and bought an Xotic EP Booster.

According to mass hysteria the unit will add a halo of voodoo around your notes.  It appears to be built like a tank and I find myself keeping it turned on about half the time.  With its single knob turned down all the way it is still adding a bit of gain to my signal path and will drive my Lovepedal Englishman into a frenzied fuzz that sounds absolutely amazing.

Here is a sample of the sound of the Xotic into a Bogner Shiva + overwound bridge pickup of a G&L SC-2 (big, rectangular MFD pup).

It is a fine little boost pedal and I think it actually lives up to the hype.
