The Xotic Voltage Doubler XVD1 is a highly practical and easy to use voltage converter capable of converting 9V DC into 15V or 18V DC in order to power effect pedals with max. 80 mA draw. Many effect pedals, for the most part overdrive, distortion and booster pedals, profit from increased dynamics, bigger head room, more treble content and less compression when powered with 15V or 18V instead of regular 9V DC, as long as they are marked and approved for higher operation voltages.
Many Xotic effect pedals can be run with 15V instead of 9V DC and some are even suitable for 18V operation. Together with the Xotic Voltage Doubler and an electric bass, the e.g. Xotic Bass BB Preamp and the Xotic Bass RC Booster sound even better with increased head room and clarity. Effect pedals from other manufacturers can be used with the Xotic Voltage Doubler too, as long as they are suitable for 15V or respectively 18V DC operation and have a maximum draw of 80 mA. The Voltage Doubler is simply placed between the 9V DC power supply and the effect pedal.
