both of these in the same price range.

the RC may be a bit more versatile with it's bass/treb controls?

any feedback regarding either of these is appreciated!

I had a Fat Boost for two years; within 4 days of getting the RC Boost, the Fat Boost was sold to my bass buddy.

The RC just does more better IMHO. Sold me in a huge way. Felt more organic and sounded better across the spectrum from lows to highs.

Just my opinion.

I have had Rc-booster for a year and I still think it smokes , I use voodoo1 for a milder clean boost with a vibe to it.
Im looking forward to hear more about the OCD Mthompson is really hyped about

the RC's just way more versatile than the fat-boost.

The RQ really works and you can dial in some pretty decent sounds using it.

Tons of volume and drive on tap - -just an overall good thing to have, in my humble opinion of course

Yes the EQ on RC is great
When you boost the treble it sounds beutifull to me , no icy at all.
Just defined tube distortion
The basses are really tight and punchy.

The RC Booster was the 9th clean boost I bought and it was the one that made me stop looking for a clean boost. I've been using it for close to a year now and no other clean boost is as versatile or sounds as good in my rig. The hands-down winner for me. Other I tried include:

Rx Germ
Fatboost
Seymour Duncan Pickup Booster
BJF Baby Pink
Nick Greer Sonic Boom
Nick Greer Royal Fromage
Z Vex SHO
Barber Launch Pad

yea,

i too like what the Fat Boost does with singles. the RC is a great pedal, but it feels different under my fingers. almost a more woody, stiffer feel, no matter the EQ. still, it does make it a heckuva lot more versatile.

either one would make a dooder happy.

i had both of these (among many other boosts). as people have mentioned, both of these are good, but i think they do different things. i liked the way the fatboost fattened up the tone (no pun intended), but the rc was probably a better neutral/clean boost. for what it's worth, i sold the rc boost and kept the fatboost (at least for now). i kept a zvex 2-in-1 for clean boosting.

[also, i do use single coils, so that seems to support the people above who said that the fatboost does much better on them than HB]

Allow me to throw one more into the mix...

Time machine boost. Quieter than Xotic and simply more toneful.

hmm....TMB, ay ?

would prefer the smaller footprint of an mxr size box (I know keeley does the katana).

I have a zoom pd-01 which does a nice clean boost. will have to give that one a try again.

I was in the market for a Fat Boost and Keeley sent me out a Katana...I played one at a show and fell in love with it...before that I was digging the fat boost...both great pedals !
