Xotic Basses was founded in 1998 as a one man company in Southern California, producing high-quality bass guitars and bass preamps. In 2000, in order to further grow Xotic as a brand, the corporation Prosound Communications Inc. (PCI) was established as a parent company to acquire the Xotic brand. At this point, marketing of Xotic Effects started and Xotic guitars and basses were made in larger quantities to meet increasing demand. PCI’s main focus was exporting of other US made brands to Japan to fund the continual manufacturing. By 2009 Xotic’s brand came to be more recognized throughout the market and it outgrew its garage location in San Fernando Valley. PCI moved to its current production offices in Van Nuys, CA. Today the Xotic Research and Development and manufacturing team is still based in Van Nuys California, but they also use satellite locations in Taiwan and Japan to supply some Xotic products at more affordable prices.
