    Because they've been talked to death. Do a search, there's lots of info on them.

    The AC is one of my alltime faves; haven't tried the BB yet. Yet.

    BB is cool as hell. I still prefer the AC, but the BB is a lot of fun too.

    No, they're not crap, but for me the RC is the best one.

    They are all good, especially if you turn them all on at once:D

    Not that new. Around these parts, when something gets released, some of us jump on it immediately and reviews sprout up before the buying public has even heard of it. Sheesh, I've had my BB for months.......... Great pedal, btw :) though no longer my fav since getting stuff from Alf Hermida........ www.hermidaaudio.com :) :)

    I´ve got the RC and the AC.
    The RC is a great clean boost pedal.
    The AC however sounds great with the bridge pickup (Humbucker) but not that good with the neck pickup or with single coils.
    It´s something with the bass register...

    AC Boost, RC Boost, and BB...I have all of them. While they are not usually ALL in my pedal board at once, at least one of them always is. I actually have two boards...one larger one for regular tour gigs, and one smaller one that fits in the airplane overhead for fly dates. I like the sound and versatility of these pedals, and the size makes them a good choice for the smaller board.

    They have upgraded the footswitch for the newer pedals, and when my oldest Xotic did develop a click in the old switch the staff at Xotic were really helpful and installed the new switch promptly.
