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:

    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.

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

    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.

        Great sounding Od pedal. The boost function gives great extra punch for solos and leads. If you rollback the drive it also acts as a nice clean boost. Overall my favorite pedal I own (and I have a lot).

          This pedal is great. It sounds amazing. The boost has a really great effect on the overdriven tones. Perfect for light overdriven tones. Stomp on that boost and you got soaring leads. overall great pedal.

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

              Just simply the best. It really works with your amp to provide the best organic overdrive I've ever heard; and I've been playing over 40 years. Also the 18 volt option is the way to go. Different tone variations and plenty of variety. Only thing is the boost doesn't ring in as proud as I would have liked.

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

                IMO, this is one of the best overdrive pedals on the market. I've found it works best to push a tube amp to that sweet spot even at low volumes. Whether on the clean channel to get some nice slightly overdriven tones, as well on the distortion channel to push the amp into sweet sweet overdrive. It's more organic sounding than the OCD, and retains the character of your amp. The OCD was good in it's own right (I own one of those also), just a darker, more distorted sound. This pedal keeps it more natural. If you like the sound of you amp already, this just makes it even better.
