The Xotic Custom Shop AC-Comp is based on the popular Xotic AC Booster and adds new tonal options and a compression circuit. With three compression modes and internal dip switches, you can choose your level of compression, tonal character and make subtle adjustments to treble and presence levels.
The Xotic AC Booster is a versatile overdrive pedal with a natural and open sound. It can be used purely as a clean booster with up to 20dB+ boost or you can dial in the gain for a sweet, thick overdrive sound.
The adjustable +15dB two band active EQ adds a wide range of harmonic content and allows you the tweak the AC to your desired tone.
The AC-Comp Booster is hand-crafted in the USA using the finest quality components, it features True Bypass switching for eliminating any signal interference when switched off.
Normal mode: This mode offers a well balanced tonal response that’s optimized for rhythm and lead sounds. It retains perfect string articulation providing distinctive smooth sustain.
Comp off mode: The middle position provides the most open and non-compressed tonal qualities. Voiced for a clean/crunch sound with slightly more mid range, complexity and minimal coloration.
Comp on mode: In the down position, this mode offers additional compression, clarity and tightness ideal for highly saturated tones. Please note this mode may be quieter than the up and middle modes.
