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:

    unlike some pedals, it allows all the tone of my strat to shine through. Easy to use. Probably will become my only drive pedal. Like the boost for leads. Lots of adjustments for balance and tone.

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

    This is a well-rounded overdrive pedal that cranks out classic green-pedal tone without the pronounced mid-range hump.

    I leave it on all of the time (it's my only pedal) and use my volume knob to control the amount of overdrive. It cleans up well and sings when pushed. I play an LP through a tweed amp. My bandmate played his PRS/Blackface through it and it took to his gear well, too.

    There was a previous review stating that it doesn't do well with humbuckers. The toggle switch options and boost dynamic are not as pronounced as they were with his single coils, but a large palette of tasty tones are there for the taking regardless of the guitar.

    The boost switch adds some nice body to solos, I would give the pedal 5 stars if it's tone could be manipulated but I am very content with the first stage's sound.

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

      Like my other Fulltone pedals, this one seems to work way better when it is fed from a good AC power supply vs. battery. Start with a real nice clean channel and add this to it. I always loved the clean channel on my Orange Rockerverb50 combo, but found the dirty channel to be somewhat limited. The OCD made me almost forget about the dirty channel on the Orange! Then the soul bender (which REALLY sounds WAY better with the Fulltone FPS-2) blew my mind. Now, this pedal. I had to tweak it and went online to watch a few demos to get some idea of what it's supposed to do, but it is amazing. It adds a bunch of tonal overdrive options and tones that are fabulous. I agree with the other reviewer who said If you are looking for OD this pedal is very versatile. The boost section does just that, boost the sound (kind of like having a 3 channel amp). I found little use to the massive volume the COMPCUT setting adds, but the boost button adds some volume and a lot more saturation. This is not really not so much of a distortion pedal, but a more subtle smooth overdrive that enhances and sustains the clean sound. It also plays well with my OCD! If you can't get enough volume boost, get an EP booster and put that in your effects loop- plays well with the Fulltone pedals also! I wish that Fulltone would make an equivalent of the EP. This is a nice tone shaping overdrive for a decent price.

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

        I originally submitted a review on the amazing pedal 2 weeks after I purchased it in November of 2009. I just want to say I have been gigging with this since then and it has held up beyond my expectations. I love the different tones I get with this pedal and have received many compliments on my sound. My main rig is a Stratocaster through a Marshall TSL100 Super Lead with either a half or full stack. Bottom line, Fulltone Pedals deliver what they claim and I am a fan for life.

          If you are looking for OD this pedal is very versatile. The boost section does just that, boost the sound (kind of like having a 3 channel amp). I bought a Xotic pedal but it was more like a distortion. This Fulltone is more of an Over Drive which is what I was looking for. If you are heavy metal you probably would like the Xotic but I am more of a R&B & Blues Rock player.

            I was only seeking a volume "pedal" for increasing the output of my Telecaster but this pedal came with many other benefits ....... overdrive/distortion ....... "tone" control ........ the sound is clean ....... as time passes, I will probably find uses for all its effects. Reasonably priced ......

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

              I run the pedal thru a G&L strat style guitar with Fender CS 69 pickups into a 63' Vibroverb clone. I don't use a lot of pedals, as I love the tone plugged straight into the amp, but I wanted an overdrive pedal for classic rock type tones. The knobs are self explanatory, except for maybe the "tone", which is more of a presence adjustment. The switches to me are a huge selling point that will allow you to tailor the pedal to your rig, and get the tone you're after. Using the left side switch, you have CompCut at the top, FlatMids in the center and Vintage at the bottom. For my setup, the Compcut works as a great clean boost, FM adds in some gain and depth and Vintage adds in a bit more gain, depth and bass. To my ears, Vintage sounds nothing like a Tubescreamer type of pedal like I had read on the internet, as I had one for a brief amount of time and didn't like it at all for my setup. I also read online that some players prefer the older non Mosfet version, but I think this new version is great. The right hand switch allows you to toggle between Mosfet and Standard. I like them both. The Standard is a bit warmer, especially on the Vintage setting, but the Mosfet makes the overdrive a bit more transparent sounding to me, which because I like the sound of my amp anyway, is a great option. The pedal is very quite and with the pedals volume on 9 o'clock and the gain set at 3 o'clock, you can use the guitars volume to clean up the gain. I was drawn to try this pedal because supposedly, Jen Turner used one while she worked with Natalie Merchant and recorded "Carnival" and I just love that tone! Even with single coils, with some snapback echo and the right touch, the tone is there.

              Everyone looks for a certain sound and this was what I was looking for. Tried other pedals but just too much of the same noise.
              A great pedal at an even greater price with MF's used gear. This pedal looked brand new, came with the original warranty and I saved lots on it over a brand new one.

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

                Guitar is not my main instrument but I use it for writing tunes and home recording. I have tried a lot of overdrive stomp boxes because I need a quiet way to record driven tones at home to avoid disturbing others. This unit does the job better than others I have used. Very natural sounding drive with subtle adjustments possible due to the quality of the pots on the unit. Small adjustments bring subtle changes to the drive and attack response unlike some others. This unit rewards exploring small changes to all knob settings.

                This unit also has a nice ability to overdrive the lower register making it a good way to slightly thicken up a Tele. Some other pedals don't do so well with lows. If you use mostly humbuckers and want cut lows with mids and highs dominating your boosted tone you might like a different unit better.

                I have to say I enjoyed its sound just as much as the drive on my Egnater all-tube head which surprised me when I first got it. Then I started using the FD2 to add boost to the Egnater taking things over the top with killer sustain and overtones. Lots of fun. I recently tried a different pedal this week that came highly recommended. It was fine but it still could not beat out the FD2. This pedal is probably the most satisfying investment in guitar-tweaking gear I have ever made.
