Lately I’ve been hearing a lot about the Xotic line (BB, AC and RC) of pedals and wanted to take a closer look. The pedal I wanted to check out today is the Xotic BB Preamp. This seems to be a great clean boost pedal giving you a 30dB boost with a 2 band EQ. This would be best used with tube amps to overdrive it naturally or to use it for additional sustain on leads. I like the idea of the 2 band EQ to fatten the tone a bit further for leads.
Here is the official description:
- The BB Preamp offers a wide variety of sounds. It’s capable of a 30dB+ clean boost with an adjustable Â±15dB two band active EQ which adds a wide range of harmonic content to your ideal sound.
- The BB also utilizes a pre-gain stage which allows the Pedal to go from a very pristine clean to a very smooth,compressed, overdriven sound.
- True bypass for eliminating any signal interference when switched off.
- Can be used with AC adaptor (optional) or 9V Battery.
I found two good videos by ProGuitarShopDemos. Here is the Xotic BB with a Les Paul
