Tubescreamer Extraordinairre!

Andrew I., 13.06.2013
This is a fine quality pedal, not cheap, but its reputation is well deserved.

I bought it as a bit of a gamble- I already had a couple of Tubescreamer type pedals that I was very happy with, but decided I was willing to splash out to see what all the fuss was about with this pedal. It turned out to be a great purchase!

The basic sound, as we all know, is along the lines of the classic Tubescreamer circuit, but for one, has slightly less of the aggressively mid focussed EQ curve, and secondly is made with high quality bits and pieces for great sound quality. I wasn't sure I'd notice much difference between this and similar cheaper pedals, but the tone does (to my own ears, at least) have something above the others I own. It just sounds more amp-like than cheaper pedals, particularly in the higher frequencies, which on lesser pedals are often the first to start sounding 'fizzy' or 'buzzy'. There is also an openness to the sound which is much sought after, but hard to find in overdrive pedals.

It is fair to say that the refinements in tone with a pedal like this could be hard to pick out in a live band context (and certainly so for your average gig-goer), but for those who are a bit obsessive about guitar tone, it is a worthy pedal to treat yourself to in the knowledge that you will be sounding as good as you can!

The expanded EQ section is also worth noting- having separate treble and bass controls makes the basic Tubescreamer tone far more versatile, easily matching your clean EQ and adding dirt from there, and making for a much better overdriven rhythm sound than these types of pedals are usually known for.

Construction is very solid and feels high quality, and while this pedal may be something of an expensive luxury, the luxury part is as much in evidence as the expensive!

An exceptionally hot and very effective booster

Michael599, 12.05.2011
I bought this AC booster because I wanted to have a slightly saturated sound (I was looking for a light Crunch to give a little more heat to my clear sound). Initially on my pedal board I already used an RC booster and a BB booster. By purchasing this AC, I was a little afraid that it gives exactly the same sound as the BB booster. Finally I was very pleasantly surprised by the general rendering.
The AC booster is particularly full, warm, transparent, very accurate with particularly good bass. Comparing with the BB booster, I was able to perceive that it had still less gain but it compensates largely by its unique heat. The quality is always the same at the level of the finish in Xotic. There is of course a cost but believe me once this pedal in your set, the effect is so excellent that you can not do without it.
I was able to test this pedal on a transistor amp (marshall valvesate) and on my main amp (mesa boogie express 5.50). I was able to use Fender Stratocaster and other types of guitars with humbucker (Suhr, Ibanez, Gibson). Of course on a tube amp, the booster will further sublimate the sound in terms of clarity and power. Out of curiosity I could try it on my old transistor amp, it's quite amazing because this AC gives the feeling of transforming a transistor amp into tube amp, there is more bass, more clarity and presence .
In the end this pedal is excellent for blues and rock and other styles, it is not a big distortion but all those who seek an intermediate sound at the level heat and clarity with a little gain will find their happiness . If I had to summarize in one sentence it would be: "The AC booster is a high quality effect bringing exceptional warmth and clarity".
