The Soul Driven Boost and Overdrive pedal from Xotic Effects is a versatile and flexible tone-shaping tool that promises to preserve your guitar’s tone while adding just the right amount of “soul.” Players get gain and volume knobs, can push mid-range frequencies using the Mid Boost knob, and tighten the bottom end or rip into searing highs with the Tone knob. The pedal also features a Bass Boost dip-switch (accessible by removing the backplate) to make your boost even fatter.

  • Great Overdrive Pedal!

    Verified Purchase

    This pedal is very nice and extremely versatile. The mid boost knob especially. You can dial in just about any tone you are looking for with this bad boy. It especially stacks well with other drives/boosts. I highly recommend with the Xotic voltage doubler.

  • Another Fine Xotic pedal!

    Had a little problem learning to dial this in. Even came close to selling it twice. Glad I didn't! When I tried it at 18 volts, it really worked with my rig. Played with the internal switches and really made it huge sounding. It's creamy and can be fairly high gain. Unique pedal that's now a keeper!…

  • Essential on my pedalboard!

    In my opinion it is one of the best overdrive pedals I have been able to use. Why? Apart from its magnificent construction and quality components, basically for two main reasons: it interacts perfectly with the volume control of the guitar and above all respects and faithfully reproduces the action of the right hand.

  • Great sound

    This sounds a lot like a tube amp distorting. Every other pedal I’ve tried misses that mark, including the expensive ones.
