OVERVIEW

Precise tonal control on a 2-channel overdrive.

Housed in a beautiful, powdercoated blue 16-gauge steel enclosure, the Fulltone Ful-Drive 2 pedal is capable of everything from clean boost to raw, non-compressed overdrive via its two switchable channels. With Volume, Tone, Overdrive, and Boost knobs along with toggle switches for selecting Vintage/CompCut modes and MOSFET/Standard overdrive styles.

MOSFET and Standard modes each deliver their own clipping style, with the MOSFET adding more bottom end and roundness to the sound. The pedal's Tone knob is an effective presence control that can smooth out or add upper harmonics. Vintage mode provides a traditional midrange bump.

The second, footswitchable Boost channel, with its own separate distortion control, is perfect for medium- to higher-gain overdrive with a more singing, violin-like sustain.

Named the Best Stompbox of 2006 by Guitar Player magazine, it'll do great things for your sound.

FEATURES
  • Offers clean boost and overdrive via two channels
  • Durable, 16-gauge steel enclosure
  • Volume, Tone, Overdrive, Boost controls
  • Selectable Vintage/CompCut and MOSFET/Standard modes

      Comments about Fulltone Fulldrive2 MOSFET Overdrive/Clean Boost Guitar Effects Pedal:

      Just got used this pedal and used it in rehearsal for the first time and man, I really wish I had gotten this pedal sooner. When I was originally looking for an overdrive I ended up going with the TS808 reissue instead of the FD2 because it's sold as the standard go-to for that classic overdrive tone that so many big names use. And the 808 does outshine many of the other OD pedals I've tried...even other TS models. However, after comparing it to the FD2, it was immediately apparent that the Fulltone was WAY better for the sound I wanted.
      I A/B'd the two pedals going into an Egnater Tweaker 40 set clean, using my Les Paul. The first thing I noticed is that the FD2 has more available volume than the 808. The FD2 set on vintage/standard is the closest to the tone of the 808...classic mid-range hump and warm, round tone. But the FD2 has a liveliness to its tone that the 808 lacks. The FD2 also retains clarity when the gain is turned up whereas the 808 starts to turn mushy and overly compressed.
      The FD2 beats the 808 in dynamics as well, as it is very responsive to pick attack and cleans up well using the guitar's volume knob. And, of course, the FD2 goes way beyond the tones that are similar to the 808. The MOSFET mode turns it into a totally different animal with increased low/low-mid punch to the tone. The FM mode smooths out the mids for better transparency of the guitar's natural tone. And the comp-cut mode gives you the option of using the FD2 as a clean boost rather than an overdrive. The Boost channel is a drive rather than volume boost which I love because you can go from normal OD to lead sustain and harmonics without having to worry that a big kick in volume is going to have you overwhelming the rest of the band in a live setting. I also noticed an improvement in my clean tone when the pedal FD2 is off as opposed to with the 808 which is not true bypass apparently.
      As far as versatility goes I can get great rock/hard rock tones from the FD2 and even some sweet metal tones if I switch over to the amp's dirty channel. It's obviously not going to give you the scooped out Unearth, Cannibal corpse sort of distortion but you can definitely get to an Opeth, Dream Theatre, prog-metal sort of tone (depending on the amp).
      So in the end the FD2 is replacing both the TS808 and the Fulltone Fatboost 3 I used to bolster the tone of the 808. Both good pedals in their own right but for the tone I want the FD2 is just perfect.

      Best Overdrive for the Money? You Bet!

      By Jim Madison

      from Washington, USA

      See all my reviews

      Comments about Fulltone Fulldrive2 MOSFET Overdrive/Clean Boost Guitar Effects Pedal:

      Nothing to complain about here! You can go from tight, punchy, pure clean sounds to heavy vintage style Overdrive with the flick of a switch! Probably not the best for metal, as it is an Overdrive pedal, not a distortion pedal. It could work though. Its great for Blues, as well as any type of other music all the way through the 80's hard rock styles. I love this pedal so much, I will never get rid of it. I play Strats and Les Pauls so I need a very versatile overdrive that doesn't compromise on tone. The Fulldrive sounds amazing with any guitar, and will last forever with how tough it is. I would suggest getting a power adapter for it, and the cool thing about that is that this pedal can run on voltage anywhere from 9v to 18v! I got an 18v adapter for it, and it makes the pedal sound so much better then it already did, and it sounded awesome before! The 18v adapter makes the overdrive slightly less compressed and more open, as well as giving the clean boost a much higher headroom without breaking up when you have the amp cranked. It also adds a little volume. Overall, an awesome pedal, go check it ou and buy one! you will not regret it.
      The Fulltone Fulldrive 2 MOSFET is amazing. Plain and simple. The features it has are extremely versatile and easy to use, making the Fullldrive a must have for any players pedal board. This pedal is a 2 stage Overdrive, which means it has the normal overdrive channel on the left, and a Boost function on the right which when activated adds a little more gain and sustain to the sound. Starting on the main Overdrive side, we have 3 modes which you can switch between using a toggle switch. The top mode is CompCut which is mainly used for Clean Boost but also can be used for a more distorted sound. The middle mode is Flat Mids which is a great overdrive sound, I really like it with my strat. It gives you a thinner, more SRV style guitar sound. The final mode is Vintage which is a heavier gain sound that works great with Les Paul style guitars, and many others. Its a thicker, fuzzier sound. There is another toggle switch which switches between MOSFET and Standard. The MOSFET mode just adds a slight amount of more crunch to the sound. The different modes are controlled by a Volume knob, Tone knob, and Overdrive knob. The boost function has a knob appropriately labled Boost that controls how much extra gain you like with the Boost on. The LED's are very bright.
      Very high quality. This thing is built like a tank! The metal housing is thick and built very well. The push buttons feel solid and secure. The knobs feel perfect when turned, tight enough that you know they are high quality but loose enough that they turn easy. All the switches feel great, no problems with any of those. Inside, you can tell that this pedal is a hand-built work of art. The circuit board looks perfect, very neat and clean.
      For the amazing tones and versatility you can get out of this pedal, the price is a bargain! I've never seen a better deal for a hand-built in the USA boutique overdrive pedal. Don't hesitate to buy one of these.

      A Great Workhorse Overdrive Box

      By starvingartist-QVD3l

      from Bristol, GA

      See all my reviews

      Comments about Fulltone Fulldrive2 MOSFET Overdrive/Clean Boost Guitar Effects Pedal:

      It's a nice pedal that has a variety of good functions and can really be your workhouse stompbox for a variety of non-metal oriented dirty tones. You can get nice clean boost options in compcut mode, get a more neutral overdrive sound that works well with midheavy amps, and a more traditional midhump overdrive. It works nicely into a more Fender style amp or into a more Vox style amp (likes my Vox AC15) depending on how you dial your settings in. It works perfectly for my tastes in more alternative rock and CCM sort of light crunch range of tones. It seems to be handling live usage pretty nicely (past the honeymoon stage) and I trust it fairly well. I highly recommend it
      Great features. The toggle switch options are what make this pedal. It's almost like having six different modes when you have the three different modes on the left toggle multiplied by the two different modes on the right toggle. This makes the pedal highly tweakable and makes it work into a variety of different amps. The option to go from 9v power to 18v power is also a nice touch.
      All the tones have a nice body and aren't cheap sounding at all. Also it has a solid build quality that will handle playing out onstage as well as it handles recording at home or in a studio. All the switches are solid and the housing and paint job seems pretty durable.
      It's a good pedal that has good tones and nice features, but at the end of the day all pedals could be just a little bit cheaper. This is fair for it's price range though.

        Comments about Fulltone Fulldrive2 MOSFET Overdrive/Clean Boost Guitar Effects Pedal:

        I have owned this pedal for a little over a year now and it has been my main overdrive on my board since the day it came in. I love everything about it.

        I recently started playing a lot of churches so with the addition of extra reverbs, delays, octaves, and tremolo pedals, it was very nice to have a 2-in-1 box for my drive. Board real estate is a big issue when you need to be able to get different sounds. It is also a gorgeous pedal aesthetically.

        Versatility at its best! I can find anything from blues tones to classic rock to light rockish worship tones. The knobies and switchies can be intimidating, but once you have learned your way around this unit it will be worth the tweaking and dialing!

        There are several other double switch OD's out there that cost more, that people say sound better, that have more knobies and switchies, but this box's fame speaks for itself. Bad products do not sell, and this one does. Simple as that.

        Bottom line, you can not beat the versatility.

        The sounds inside of this box, its price, its gorgeous looks, its ability to save the room of adding another boost pedal, and its overall success is why I am going to recommend this little fella and keep him on my board.

        from Alabama

        Comments about Fulltone Fulldrive2 MOSFET Overdrive/Clean Boost Guitar Effects Pedal:

        A great pedal for OD and Clean Boost, but also FM and Vintage mode will allow you to really get dirty and break up an amp really well.
        Pleanty of choices for OD and Boost
        Well built and sturdy, hardware is great.

        All of That Fulltone Goodness!

        See all my reviews

        Comments about Fulltone Fulldrive2 MOSFET Overdrive/Clean Boost Guitar Effects Pedal:

        Exellent sound, amazing quality, and worth the extra dough. Overall very very versatile pedal, perfect for anything from crunching up your praise and worship tone, wailing some blues, dialing in that Modern Country drive, or shredding some new rock! Sounds and works amazing with the GT-500 right after it in the effects chain. I would rate this as the most important pedal on my board, hardly ever gets turned off!
        EXTREMELY versatile pedal! Can wail with the best of em, or just add a little crunch. I usually use just the OD side for everything, then stomp the boost for solos which is exactly what this thing was made to do. It does take some getting use to and some time to get it dialed in, but when you do! Changed my entire outlook on overdrives and distortions! Fulltone for me is the only way to go!
        IT'S A FULLTONE! Enough said. This thing is built like a tank with it's full metal construction. The dip switches are very solid, and you can tell the first time you flick either one of them. Pots are very clean and smooth just like you'd expect from a high end piece of gear. The only beef I've had with mine is that the OD side switch gets hung between modes from time to time, effectively muting my signal. But that has happened only twice since I got the pedal 3 years ago.
        Worth every penny. BECAUSE, when you think about it, you've already spent what this thing costs on crappy overdrives anyway, save up the dough, buy the best and it will save you in the long run. Remember cheaper is not better when it comes to gear.

          I have used literally dozens of overdrive units trying to find the one that "Heats up" the tone of my Stratocasters without distorting and this pedal is by far the best one I have ever found.

          Not durable enough...

          By Anonymous

          from Undisclosed

          Comments about Fulltone Fulldrive2 MOSFET Overdrive/Clean Boost Guitar Effects Pedal:

          I have had a lot of experience with these pedals. I play 300 shows a year with various bands and travel the world, and this pedal is usually present on my pedalboard or has been for several years now. If your looking for the tube screamer type sound, but with a lot more including a boost channel with the helpful mosfet bass boost mod, and the pedal also has different settings for the overdrive such as a flatmids which gives you a little for definition, and a compcut for a clean boost, then this is your pedal. The only problem is I dont think the durability is up to par. Ive been through two of these in the past year alone, and I take very good care of stuff. On the first the on/off switch went out completely on it. On the second, the mosfet toggle fell into the pedal unprovoked, and rendered the boost channel unusable. So, now I have two unusable almost brand new Fulldrive 2 Mosfets sitting around my house. Great sounding pedal though.
