The Scott Henderson Signature Model RC Booster is a newly refined pedal made in conjunction with Scott’s two main goals; leave the amp EQ unaltered by the distortion from a pedal, and to prevent muddiness when using distortion with the front pickup, or playing chords.
To leave the EQ unaltered, the natural sound from the guitar had to be delivered to the amplifier unaffected. This means the amplified signal from the pedal must act like the amps natural overdrive.
Scott's complaint about boost pedals is they either have too much bass and no bass knob to control it, or they enhance too much of the lower mids, rather than the bass. When boosting low mids, the low end suffers and chord playing especially on the neck pick up, gets muddy. This pedal has resolved this issue with its balanced response of the low frequencies from the low to high strings. With this pedal, you won’t loose the bass response and you’ll be able to maintain a solid outline of the tone.
To review, the Scott Henderson Signature Model RC Booster passes the guitar’s natural EQ along to the amplifier while enhancing the bass frequencies so that low-end is not lost and helps keep the distorted front pickup from sounding muddy and improves chord articulation.

What's the difference between Standard RC Booster and RC Booster- Scott Henderson signature model?
When we began working with Scott, he came to us and ask if we could modify low-end bass response of RC Booster. After analyzing Scott's set up and rig, we were able to provide Scott with the modification he was looking for, this lead to us releasing the limited edition package. The adjustment that was made is minimal and the change was made in accordance with Scott's amp setting and guitar's characteristics, which included single coil pickups.
Because this change to the RC is minimal, we have incorporated it into the production RC. Beginning with serial #12061, these units have the Scott Henderson modification, so to speak. We want to stress that this is a minimal change. For guitarist using single coils, many of them may not notice a difference. For guitarist using pickups other than single coils, we believe they will hear no difference.
We wanted to let you know the facts in case you were hearing different. If you have any questions please let us know.
