    instead of the AC booster to help things along with my OCD im thinking about the Xotic EP Booster to do it.

    how well do you think they will work together? it will be the OCD then the EP Booster.

    thanks,

    EP booster > OCD might work better.

    I run the RC Booster last in my chain, and leave it on all the time. Overdrives sound fine running before it. Im sure the EP will work the same way.

    If you have the booster first it will slam the input of the OCD kind of like putting a volume booster in front of an amp. Should give it more distortion and more volume.

    cool! thanks guys. i appreciate it. i am just looking for a hot overdrive tone and the Xotic EP Booster seems to be a great pedal for doing such a job.

    You could also look into getting a lower gain transparent pedal like a Tim/Timmy or a Barber LTD SR if you're looking for a base tone without adding too much color.

    i need to revive this for a hot second. i'm messing around with my ep after my ocd with the bright switch on which is sounding really nice. i was thinking about getting a timmy or mayflower for this exact application.

    all i wanted was the same sound but louder and a little more out front. set the drive to taste and use your volume knob for different shades. think i have it.

    anyone else have this experience?
