The roots of Xotic go back to a small garage in the San Fernando Valley of Southern California, back in 1996. The one man company began by producing and designing high-quality bass guitars and bass preamps. Xotic Basses needed a feature that set them apart from the competition and thus the Tri-Logic Bass Preamp, that was built-in to the basses, was created.
By 1998, Xotic's low profile side project donned a new innovative and creative invention. The Robotalk 1 was designed as the first pedal to be created and it was yet to even be called Xotic, it was simply an ultra-boutique pedal, made from scratch, in limited quantities. It also set a precedent that remains with Xotic today! All pedals created are to be constructed with premium quality parts, extraordinary durability, and with great functionality using only carefully selected components that are thoroughly tested by our engineers. This is what provides our instruments and accessories with musically and artistically satisfying sound.
