Comments about Fulltone GT-500 Booster Distortion:
I was just cruising the site for bargains and saw that my Swiss Army Knife had never been reviewed so I thought I better correct this injustice. Until last year, this was the only overdrive and distortion that I have used for the better part of a decade (I did add a Keeley Clean Boost, so I could reserve channel A for just OD). I can't say enough about the quality, tone and durability of this pedal. Last year, I moved over to LIne 6 HDX500, and am now running direct for the live show but for recording or just pure pleasure I still plug this baby into my old tube amp. Nothing compares. It was a great bang for the buck for..but is off the chain for this price. I got rid of every stomp box in my arsenal but this and the Keeley. I will never part with it, If I have the extra coin before they go away, I will buy a second just to have it. The POD is great for convenience but at least 2 or 3 times every gig, I wish I had this thing in front of one of my amps.
It's adequate but not the best for modern metal but for everything else, there is nothing it won't do and do as well as anything out there. The switch that allows you to choose which drive section comes first is a really nice plus because when you stack the drives (engage both), that's when this thing really gets exceptional.
Using it for a clean boost is also very good. It's no Keeley but it's darned close, especially when you consider that this whole pedal is roughly have the price of a Clean Boost. It does a great job of driving the front end of an amp also. In fact a little grit from the OD and a little from the amp is pure bliss.
I think where this really excels is in the studio though. It's virtually impossible to get a bad sound out of it but spend some time tweaking and you have near infinite tonal combinations.
