Aphex’s Guitar Xciter 1403 stompbox delivers an aural exciter, and big bottom in a sturdy pedal that maximizes sound.

By Elliot Szabo

 

Pros:
Great Build, will survive underfoot for quite a while.  Unique, no other effect quite does what this effect does as well as it does it. Adds richness to a guitar both in rhythm and lead parts without boosting Db. Lower Db levels mean unwanted feedback is less likely to occur. Can act as an independent passive D.I. when needed.

Cons:
The effect is very subtle, to the point of being indistinctive in some live instances.
