OVERVIEW

A limited anniversary edition of the legendary Full-Drive overdrive.

In celebration of Fulltone's 20 years as the world's premiere boutique pedal manufacturer, Fulltone is releasing a signed, limited edition Fulldrive called the "FD3"!

Features include a real NOS JRC4558D chip, not the current production NJM4558. It has the Fulltone-exclusive Order switch which places the Boost either before or after the Overdrive section of the circuit. After takes whatever sound you have set and increases the Volume so you pop out of the mix. Before pounds the input of the Overdrive channel and increases the distortion, not really the volume, more like the FD2.

It also has two modes, toggle selectable. The "'90s" original FD2 voicing isn't transparent. Mid, rich Mids, Color, beautiful color. You want transparent? Wrong mode. The "Wide Asym" or Wide Asymmetrical delivers a beautiful, chimey, more open sound.

Check out the completely independent, discrete JFET Clean Boost with a Volume control and a unique mini-knob controlling Germanium Diode "Limiting" function that has to be felt to be really appreciated! Clockwise on this knob takes out the strident, irritating spikes that occur with other clean boosts when you hit the strings hard -- absolutely gorgeous feature destined to be a classic and might just show up as a micro sized pedal called "2B." This Boost circuit does not invert the signal like most clean-boosts and can be used with or without the overdrive section of the pedal.

Icing on the cake? The housing is about 20% smaller than the traditional Fulldrive2.

    Comments about Fulltone Custom Shop 20th Anniversary Limited Edition Full Drive 3 Dual Overdrive Guitar Effects Pedal:

    This is what the original Fulldrive should have been. The independent boost is an excellent effect on it's own and really makes this a 2-in-1 effect like many of those on the market, but the tone of the drive is classic Fulldrive all the way.

    I own the FD2 MOSFET and am a big fan of that pedal, however it gets limited use because it takes up a lot of space, and I often use a small pedalboard. I bought the FD3 because, with the independent boost, it could serve two much needed purposes. Comparing the two, the FD3 is a bit darker in tone (but the tone knob adds more than enough high end) and has more gain available, which I like. Also more pronounced mods. The two pedals are as different as any other two TS variants in my collection, and I own plenty.

    As far as the tone, this thing sounds amazing. Smooth, rich, mid-heavy overdrive that cuts through the mix but is never harsh. I am always looking for that perfect TS tone, and this is a serious competitor for my favorite.

      Comments about Fulltone Custom Shop 20th Anniversary Limited Edition Full Drive 3 Dual Overdrive Guitar Effects Pedal:

      The boost feature with the dynamics knob acts like a good compressor and can make the notes just "jump out".
      The overdrive function sounds really dark and you need to really need adjust the tone to the almost to the max setting.
