Product Information:

Third parties are selling counterfeit goods under the Xotic trademark. These counterfeit products do not have Xotic's warranty and are unlikely to perform as well as authentic Xotic products.

Sale of such goods infringes Xotic's rights and can result in fines up to $5,000,000, imprisonment of up to 10 years, damages, and attorney's fees under US law.

Purchasers of counterfeit Xotic products are being victimized by receiving goods of a significantly lower quality. Please be careful to avoid purchasing counterfeit Xotic BB Preamps. The counterfeit BB Preamp looks similar to the authentic product, but it is different in several respects, including the knob, color and size of the case.

For example, the product below is an example of a counterfeit Xotic BB Preamp.

Buy from authorized Xotic retailers to get authentic Xotic products.
