    I thought about posting this, but decided to wait until they actually have clips...

    I am sure some clips will come up soon. Didn't one of the guys in another thread that 580 have already been sold?

    Is Scott Henderson endorsed by "Big Dogs" also? Everytime I see him he's wearing a Big Dogs T Shirt...

    My original RC does exactly what he likes about the new one! I am pretty much using the RC as my boost in front of a Club 40. I really Love the way it evens up my strat tone with my les paul when i switch guitars. Just perfect with a strat neck pickup

    They should give away a big dog shirt with every pedal, IMO.

    So if you want your original RC to sound like his new one, all you have to do is crank the bass on the pedal (he has his about 10 clock on the new one)...Brilliant.:huh

    Not exactly, as the bass is tuned to a lower frequency, as he explained.
    If you turn up the bass on the old model, you'll just get a lot of the "low, low mid" as he calls it!

    But Scott is a sucker for low bass. I read that he doesn't like any amps lower powered than 100w, because the bass is more like low mid than bass on those amps.
    I only play a 25w tweed deluxe clone, so I'm probably not getting the "real bass", but I like it's portability and I still think it sounds great. I wouldn't mind getting an extension cab to get a slightly "bigger" tone though...

    Does anyone have any specs on the new version?

    How is the EQ different?

    It's hard to believe that if there is a big demand for these that Xotic wouldn't eventually make them available but who knows. They'll probably make the "Scott Henderson" version limited and eventually produce a stock model with the same specs. Purely speculative however. If the Kingsley Jester wasn't blowing my mind everytime I play throught it, I would be all over the SH RC Booster.

    I thought I'd answer my own question :dunno

    Here's an email exchange w/ Xotic (if anyone from Xotic wants me to delete this - I will)

    Q:

    "From your posts on the Xotic Forum I've learned that the original
    RC Booster has a Bass Q Peak of 100hz.

    What is the Bass Q Peak of the Scott Henderson RC Booster?

    Thanks"


    A:

    "The peak is still the same but the EQ curve is different. It's a little less mid range when the gain knob is set high.
    Thank you.

    There you have it dsl - I hope that answered your question :messedup

    Man that's a really specialized tweak to a pedal that already sounded best with the whole neck pickup strat tone anyway. I wonder if you'd even be able to tell the difference onstage.

    Doubt it. The RC Booster is awesome as is the Clinch EP-Pre and to be honest I feel them more than hear them live and that's pushing it a bit.

    I love both pedals but are they indispensible? Nope.

    I have seen Scott play and he has so many pedals I cant just see him using just the RC for his solo,s,I love my RC that I have had for about 5 yrs and is one that I always use on my board but I never have seemed to have a problem with tight bass tones,also my bass player,s tone is very deep most of the time since he doesnt play much of the funk slap type bass,and so he doesnt use much treble so I think to much bass from guitar would be lost,I will keep using my RC,but I,m sure the new one is cool!
