Hey guys, here's some info you all probably already know.
I love my 50ST but it lacks a bit of gain.

Well, there's a cure.
Out of all the booster/ods I tried, the Xotic RC Booster pushes the gain completely transparently. Doesn't change the sound, doesn't color it, it just increases the gain. It's like the gain knob terminates on 15 or 16 instead of 12.

Really really awesome pedal.

Agreed, especially useful with Strats.

Hey philosopher,

I use the Xotic RC Booster pedal in the effects loop of my Pitbull 45/12 combo amp. It send my drive channel over the top with its 20db boost:twisted: much to the dislike of my co-guitarist in my former classic rock band.

:shock:
Never tried to use it in the fx loop.
I'll give it a try.

My fulltone OCD works great in front of the amp too. Adds some tight bottom end to it.

Hey guys - have anyone tried an RC or an OCD in front of a CLX? Not that I think the CLX needs any additional gain...:)

Yep, I use the RC Booster and BB Boost in front of my ST/50. They are amazing!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

If you like the RC, you should also try the BB! Works great with the ST/50 head.

What other pedals you guys try?

Have the new Xotic BB-MB. Sounds amazing with my 50/12! Next will
be a RC Booster. Anyone use a compressor? Been thinking about getting
one.

How do you like the BB-MB compared to the regular BB?

I like it better. More tone options with the mid pot. Though it's a
little difficult to adjust.

Still doesn't seem to make it any gainier to me. I prefer the Xotic BB pedal!!!! Love it.
